View Full Version : Which MP3 player out of Zune, Ipod, Zen?

I want to get a new mp3 player for my birthday so I was wondering what you guys thought was the best out of the three? I'm really looking at the Zune, Ipod Nano/Classic, and Zen Vision M mostly. Storage doesn't really matter as all 4 of those players have enough space for me. Which do you think is better is terms of quality, accessibility, etc.

Without knowing how much music you have, and whether you watch movies or not, I can't really suggest one MP3 player over another.

BTW, check out the new Zunes that came out this week, they look very promising.

Any of those 4 I posted have enough storage for me. 8GB is enough for me right now, but if I get a bigger one, I have no problems using that for more music, videos, and pictures.

get the ipod touch. i know the price is super high but wait for it to go down like the ipods and iphone

I'm an iPod guy, but I know a few guys who really like their Zunes. If storage space isn't your issue, then just figure out how much you want to spend and what features you want (like movies). I know for a fact that iPods and Zunes are good machines, but I don't know anything about Zen.

Whatever is cheapest, I say. The music comes out the same from all of them. Just make sure to get a good pair of headphones--that's where the quality can be distorted.

Forget all that. Check this out Samsung P2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdldElmVJtw). I pre-ordered one already for my friend and estimated date of arrival is early November. I can't wait that long and I will have an mp3 player (ipod, of course) by then. Sorry, Samsung, that's what you get for making me wait.

I agree with Superman.
Unless you're keen on looks and features.. I really wouldn't care what to buy. Whichever one is cheapest.

For me personally, I just got an iPod, as it works fine :D!

ZEN is cool, there are unbreakable and have more features then ipods, such as FM radio. Never had a Zune but considering they have Zune 2 already the original one is not a good deal. Zune requires special software tho. Can't go wrong with the ZEN.

I'm looking at the iPod Touch. I already have a Nano which is fine as a music player but having wireless internet in my shirt pocket would be really great.

Creative is the best bang for the buck.

creative all the way. i hate itunes and the creative has a lot more features. though if youre a mac/itunes man, the new ipod classic isnt a bad alternative either. but the creative has just been discontinued so you can probably get it for dirt cheap. (regardless of it being discontinued, it's still the best)

Creative doesn't have the ability to surf the web.

I would say get an iPod or creative, but I would lean towards the ipod. They are, IMO, more reliable and Apple CS literally leads the electronics industry.

New ipods look schweet, too. and Inexpensive.

Bought an iPod Touch this afternoon. Hard to find it - three stores that I called were out of them. It's an absolutely amazing device. Oh yeah, it plays music too.

I decided to get a Zune after finding one for $100 on Woot. Thanks for the help!

the ipod touch is the real deal....

OP....depending on the size of your music collection, choose either some small mp3 player, the nano, or ipod classic/zune/creative zen

each has some good features....the ipod is well established obviously, but microsoft has brought some cool things to the zune like wireless syncing...

or if your collection is a fairly decent size or you frequently switch your playlists...and you would like a full wide-screen touch screen with internet via wifi....consider the ipod touch...

I have a Zen Vision and it's been working great so far. No regrets whatsoever.
