I'm not so convinced with the ipod. I prefer the nice metallic look and features of the zen myself.

wink.gif Archos Jukebox Multimedia 20Gb wink.gif

Only plays mp3 audio files, but also plays divx video and shows jpegs. It works as an external hard disk and doesn't force you to use crappy software with copy protection. It's not perfect, but suits my needs fine and has given me no problems at all. And the next generation Archos units (AV140, AV300 series) look even better.

JVC XL-PM30 CD-based mp3 player which I bought to replace the Panasonic SL-MP35 I stepped on wink.gif
It takes literally almost five seconds to change tracks, and the very nice LCD screen died soon after the warranty expired dry.gif

Don't buy the JVC! - it's more reminiscent of JVC home audio products than their car decks (not good).

My Jornada died some months ago (fell down, display was broken)... I bought a 15GB IPod (3rd gen.) now, and am happy with it. Using ephpod @ WinXP for uploading songs / contacts.

Aside from my RioVolt SP-250 (hacked to use iRiver firmware) and my MpTrip, I also have a Sony MZ-R500 MiniDisc recorder, which I consider somewhat of an MP3 player. Okay, it doesn't play MP3's, but it's lossy-compressed audio nonetheless so I think it counts.

Replaced dead Iriver IMP-350 SlimX with the Iriver IMP-550 SlimX. I love it! Waiting for Ogg Vorbis (they have it working on the models but are waiting to release the firmwarwe), and hoping another firmware comes along to replace 1.20's stereo/mono radio bug, and its volume bug when using Extreme 3D. Overall very pleased with the 550!

right now, i have an Jamba U 100 USB Stick (which seems to be a product from ?sigma-tel?) and am quite happy with it.
use it to carry my documents for work (as iīm not in an office, but do visit families and have a lot of paperwork to do), and have to do a documentation of my work with the families it lets me speech-record directly after the meetings onto the stick.
and by the way it has nice mp3 playback. i do my (trans)encodings with Lame@102 kb/s (good quality with 16kHz cutoff, which is enough for the underground and my aiwa earbuds tongue.gif ), so thereīs room for everything. good solution for me (and if my office now please would upgrade their computers, so i can connect6 this drive in any computer dry.gif , 'cos right now thereīs just 2 station which have usb-connectors. thatīs life, when working as an social worker biggrin.gif

iPod, and it hasn't let me down yet. I jog, do sit-ups, and a multitude of other exercises every night and the iPod has given me no problems. The iPod is definitely worth the $300.

Geez, this is an old thread! A lot of new stuff has come out in a year-and-a-half.

Right now, I use my Sony CLIE NZ-90 PDA for portable MP3 playback (CBR-only sad.gif ). But soon I'll be getting a Rio Karma 40GB, unless there will be a better portable solution that can do Vorbis and FLAC playback with at least 40GB of space.

I've got a Neuros with the dual backpacks. Can't say I'm entirely impressed with them, since you can lose all your songs if you sneeze the wrong way. In retrospect, I probably should have gotten the iRiver iHP-100 or the Rio Karma, but that might just be buyer's remorse.

My first was a RioVolt, followed by another RioVolt (the black one with the FM receiver). Next I got a Creative Zen USB 2, didn't like the USB2 sold it on eBay, got a FireWire version. I recently got a Dell Axim, but as yet have not played any MP3's on it, I only have a 64MB CF card, not large enough to hold enough music to matter (I encode using the ape setting on LAME). I didn't get the Axim for playing music anyway, that's just a nice side benifit I may take advantage of one day. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ph34r.gif

I recently replaced my Palm Tungsten T with a Treo 600 mobile phone.

This thing makes a pretty darned nice MP3 & Ogg player!
It's MUCH louder than the Palm Tungsten was, and does email, phone, pda stuff as well.
It has speaker phone too, so I can unplug the headphones and get crappy transistor quality sound while I'm working.

The only beef I really have with it is that it has a 2.5mm stereo jack so I need to use a converter with my headphones.

A 40GB iPod and a couple of Minidisc players including one NetMD player.

I much prefer the iPod because it holds so much music and doubles as a external hard drive (tax deductible!). I love the automatic sync you get with iTunes and I can play back my Audible.com books with out needing to bypass the encryption, which is what I have to do to play back the .aa files on my minidisc players.

But the battery life on the minidisc players is far longer.

I started with Rio 300 (I think that was the model name, black thing, early MP3 player 32Mb, got it from a friend's wife who worked for them ohmy.gif)

Now I have an MPIO FL-100, go look in awe at it's silversome beauty, with 256Mb of solid state memory and expandable with SD cards, my wife has bought me a 256Mb SD card and new headphones for Xmas! ohmy.gif)

It's great, oh and it plays MP3 (including VBR) and WMA and is flash upgradeable. There is no sign of AAC support though although their is a rumour that MPIO will introduce this on some of their players.

So if slim, sleak, sexy, solid state pleasure then go to www.mpio.com and have a look!

For my birthday, I bought myself an iRiver iMP-550 a week ago. Going great so far, no real complaints [other than line out is a bit weak] and eagerly awaiting Ogg Vorbis support in December smile.gif

I have a Expanium 201 the sound is good, plays every kind of mp3. the 300 series support also AAC LC but I bought this because it was a lot cheaper and does what I want (lotīs of CDīs in one only). Usually I use LAME -preset standard for my portable.
