    iFP-795 512MB - some asswipe stole it.
    It had 512 MB capacity, which was good enough for me.
    It held roughly 100 songs so it was fine.
    The headphones it comes with are pretty crappy.
    The shuffle didn't shuffle ALL the songs which bothered me but all players do that.
    The battery life was good I guess, I only owned it for like 2 months before it got stolen.
    It runs on a AAA battery I think and I'd never changed it.
    The transferring software froze on my computer a LOT because when I opened my music folder, there were too many songs to load.
    I only had around 3000 songs btw.
    But it was still prettty good. The battery life was great since it only had a small LCD screen.
    It has a radio but I never used it lol. The reception wasn't too good in a car though I recall.
    I don't remember the exact price since my dad bought it for me but it was around $179.99 CAD. It's dropped a lot in price now.

    ^ i have this also.
    im very happy with it. from my AA battery i recieve 2 weeks worth which is GREAT! (concidering i walk to bus stop every morning for 20 minutes , and on the school bus for another half hour. then after school also. )
    the transfer of music files to the mp3 is a bit slow but i don't mind.
    i never use the radio, wasn't very sharp when i did use it.
    does the job. very happy image
    my cousin bought it as a gift for me from america. he said he got it for $150AMERICAN

    adwark; WOW. They must have cost you an arm and a leg.

    I recently had a Creative MuVo but my friends killed it. =[
    So i'm mp3less at the moment, which i find extremely inconvient when i have free classes.

    I really, really want a psp though. =\
    But I just don't have that sort of money at the moment.
    So it's going to take me a while to save up _ _"


    See? Common mispellings of my screen name. Adwark, ackward, adork etc.
    Think A.W. dark

    Not all mine.. in that picture at the things that are mine is the 2 Pocket PCs and the Zen Micro
    The PSP, Ipod, and Rio is my little brother's stuff.

    image My brother doesn't seem to care much about music but he had MP3 players since 64mb ones were cool. I just have my Zen, and two of those MP3 cd players which are actually very good for music 700mb/cdrw gets you like 10 hours of music. More than enough and it has good battery life...

    I just had to get a small mp3 player though... I like mine as long as I dont have to transfer things into it.

    Steph, maybe you weren't meant to have a MP3 player =(

    Haha maybeee, but I am in love with Creative right now.
    My Zen arrived today--and to my surprise, it's been upgraded from 5 GB to 6 GB!!!
    I got a brand new player (my old one had a scratched touchpad from me being careless with it)
    and an extra gig. I'm soooo happy.
    Hehe...they must be getting a lot of complaints about the headjacks for the 5 GB.

    Anyways. I still plan to buy that Sony 512 or 1 GB mp3 player (the one that doesn't look like a bean)
    Well maybe not since my twin friends both own one..
    Maybe a Samsung.
    let me serenade your soul.

    yes you are correct.

    2GB is the highest you can get through a flash based memory chip for now.

    nano's like the 4GB and 6GB use multiple memory chips iirc..

    LG CE500

    It uses a transflash memory card. when i bought it gave me headsets, usb cord, memory card(64mb), micro sd adapter, and a software. software is really horrible made had to reinstall it several times to get it to work. But instead i just use the sd adapter much easier. im currently waiting for the 1 gig.
    pros-
    buttons on the face plate
    stero speakers
    make playlists on the phone

    cons-
    small memory capacity at the moment
    and software sucks.

    overall nice phone^^


    i like the phone!!

    i have h10 iriver..

    Bring on the iAudios

    IPB Image

    iAudio G3:


    Pros


    AA battery. A signficant improvement from using AAA batteries. Never ran out of life on the player.
    Navigation. File-tree style.
    File support like OGG. Don't need lossless on a 1 GB player.
    Drag n drop style.
    Quick recording
    Best Blue Backlit display I've seen so far.
    Good size. Could actually grip and control without cramping.


    Gray Areas


    Sound Quality. Pretty good and better than many players out there. I kind of wish it was more amped like the U3. Also, it has a good 5 band EQ and other settings for sound tweakers, although, using the effects makes the sound seem processed.
    Looks. Either love it or hate it.
    Storage. Wish I would've gotten the 2 GB version.
    Joystick. Some seem to view it as fragile, yet I believe it makes navigation easier. Plus, I've got a gentle touch.
    Case. Once again. Either love it or hate it. Protects well, but it's not all that stylish.
    Lyric support - just a fun thing to have.


    Cons


    I wish the FM tuner would get better reception. (Only get one good station when I'm in class) =D
    Recorded lectures turn out to be very soft

    Overall: to sum it into several descriptive words, it's a quality, low profile, portable, MUSIC player.

    wow that looks pretty dam good. hows the video playback?? nice quality??

    35hours??? thats not right.. is it?? especially with a harddrive based mp3player.. if it was 35hours.. EVERYONE would buy one considering it last longer than a normal mp3player.. haha.. and more longer than Creative zen vision:m and ipod video's.

    -Big Impression (people just go "wow your player looks awesome! mine is total crap!")
    -Excellent Sound Quality (It's just too hard to explain)
    -Excellent Voice Recording Quality (Me and my friends made recordings of us rapping and we slowed it down, PLAIN AWESOME.)
    -The Text Viewer (I would've failed ALL of my Spanish tests if it didn't have this)
    -They were all the rage at Soompi (that's what convinced me to buy one)

    Cons:

    Heh you people make me want to cry D: I wish my mp3 player had more memory, but alas, blew the money on a 250g harddrive, so need to save up a bit more to get a better player.

    I have...

    Okay yeah I know my phone cam sucks lol but it's convenient <3

    Or rather, this is the official picture from Creative. The only difference is mine is white.

    Creative Zen Nano Plus
    capacity: 512mb (small </3)
    Format: built-in flash
    Features: FM radio, voice recorder, small size (<3).
    Battery: single AAA. Creative claims 18 hrs, but I haven't tried exhausting the battery yet; plus, I'm using rechargeables.
    Player Interface: 3 buttons and a scroller. All physical stuff, gotta press them instead of just barely touching them as with Ipods and Zen Micros. Can switch the display upside down (LOL COMPLETELY USELESS IN MY OPINION) for right-/left-handed preferences.
    Software: None. I use windows explorer to do all the drag-and-drop transfers.
    Price: $60
    I miss soompi :<

    my friend has the iaudio. It's pretty small in hand to me, but the design was not as sexy as i thought it was.

    Samsung YH-820

    Capacity: 5gb
    Format: Hard drive
    Features: Relatively small and thin, picture viewer, voice recorder
    Battery: Internal Battery
    Player Interface: MP3, WMA, Secure WMA, Janus Upgradeable, Ogg Vorbis, and JPEG image file playback
    1.6-inch CSTN Color LCD (65K color) for Picture Viewing at 128 x 96 resolution, Includes ID3-tag update software, stereo earphones, a USB cable, a belt clip, and a line-input cable
    Price: around $200 but i'm sure price went lower

    My view: This is one horrible piece of equipment. Headphones are bad, it freezes on you often, slow booting time and broke after 9 months after i purchased it. Battery life is around 5-6 hours. The only thing good about it is the voice recorder. I'd never be able to survive my lectures without this feature. 3 out of 10

    Please keep the reviews coming. I am looking for a new mp3 player at the moment after this piece of junk died out on me last week.
