Creative Zen Micro
Capacity: 4gb
Format: Microdrive (mini hard drive refer to http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v513/aw_.../microdrive.jpg good example)
Features:
FM radio, voice recorder, small size known to fit into altoid tins.
Battery:
they claim 8 hours, I think its pretty close to about 7 if I drain it down to nothing.
Player Interface:
Touchpad, no physical moving buttons on the surface. Takes some getting used to. Sometimes I would try to increase the volume and it would ignore my thumb so I mash harder and the volume goes WAAY up. The power switch at the top next to the headphone jack is annoying as well, slide and hold to turn on and off.
Software:
The software in the mp3 player is very IPod like. Sorts based on ID3 tags, lets you modify the menus if you want. Everything but charging the MP3 player is logical and easy to do. You must lock the keypad to charge it with the computer off or with a Ipod usb charger.
The software for the computer is crap. Creative did a swell job of offering 4 pieces of software for organizing and transfering, 3 drivers, and a few versions of the firmware image.
If you update the firmware of the player it will support the Play for Sure for Windows Media Player. Its kinda nice to drag things in with windows explorer, but anything else is terrible! One of the creative programs opens a window about the size of the soompi text box for making a reply that you cant resize and they expect you to be able to make sure the ID3 tags match and if not you have to resize the cells (think excel spreadsheets) so you can see the file name, then slide back to the other part to change that entry.
Price: $120, but typically seen at $160 for the 5gb one.
Gaah cant believe I forgot about price! Its a huge factor in the decision...

    iRiver T10 [Korean version]
    Capacity: 1gb
    Format: flash
    Features:
    -Very, very long battery life [39 hours/AA battery]
    -FM Radio w/ recording
    -Voice Recording [different bitrates]
    -Lyrics Support [shows lyrics matching with the progress of the song]
    -Diverse file type support: mp3, wma, wav, ogg, asf
    more but can't think of any -____-
    Battery:
    almost 40 hours~ that's the best thing about this mp3 player. i stick in one AA battery and it goes for at least 2 weeks for me since i don't use it all the time.
    Player Interface:
    very simple "iriver flash mp3 player" design. easy to get used to and very practical. almost to the point where it's too simple and comfortable and you wish for something more extravagant.
    Software:
    you just use usb 2.0 to drag and drop- very comfortable.

    iRiver H10 [International Version]
    Capacity: 5GB
    Format: Mini Hard Drive...?
    Features:
    - FM radio
    - Voice recorder
    - Text viewer
    - Picture viewer
    Battery:
    iRiver claims 12 hours, I get 12 hours. image
    Player Interface:
    There's a power button at the left side, all by itself. On the right side, there's the Rewind, Play/pause, and Forward buttons. In the middle is the navigator, which is used for scrolling and to control the volume.
    Software:
    The software included is called iRiver Plus. It has a good interface, fast, and it's easy to use. It gives you enough options, whether it's the music, the interface, or transfering. It takes up 15.85 MB, and it doesn't affect the performance of your computer if you use it.
    Extra:
    Something that I don't really like about this player is that the LCD is too small for my liking (but I'm used to humongous things) and that you can't skip a few seconds in the music itself without changing the options (which completely disables the "Skip to next song" function). The sound without changing earphones is pretty good, a lot better than iPods. I think the only other company that can beat it is Creative. image

    Overall grade: 8.5/10

    BenQ JoyBee 125
    Capacity: 256mb (I think the top model has 512mb, might have went up to 1gb now)

    Format: USB drive

    Features:
    FM radio, voice recorder, instant plug and play USB drive, rechargeable li-ion battery

    Battery:
    never really tested out the full battery life, but it certainly lasts over 2 hours. Site says up to 10

    Player Interface:
    interace is very simple. 5 buttons on top, and an off switch on the bottm (on button is the same as menu button). the menu button and the button next to it cycles through the menu, the other 3 are simply just
    rewind/fforward/stop.. yada yada
    The menu system is a little tricky at first and it sucks that volume changes need to be done through the menu instead of a button. That's okay though as my headphones has its own volume control.

    Software:
    it does come with a cd, but I never used it. the thing is really simple to use. it has a retractable USB connector. Just stick it into any USB port, and windows will automatically detect it as a new hard drive. simply drag and click mp3 files into the mp3 folder. For your storage uses, just drag anything (i.e word documents, zip files, etc) into the drive outside of the folders. It's very portable and light. recharging is done through the usb ports too (although it does come with a regular recharger).

    iRiver H1o [5gig internation UMS version]
    Capacity: 4gb
    Format: Microdrive (mini hard drive)
    Features:
    FM radio, voice recorder, picture display, color display, line recording (direct record from other media players), vertical touchpad, ability to show/display .txt files
    Battery:
    12 or so hours claimed. I got that when i first got it a year ago, now its, hm.. with my settings, probably about 0-10 hours
    Player Interface:
    Touchpad, 2 buttons on front: back and select. 3 on the side of the h10 in order: previous pause/play forward
    Software:
    iRiver Plus. eh its ok.
    one cool feature is Gracenote Song/tag identifyer.
    just select the song, button, look up tag individualy/by album, and chances are that u'll get the correct tags. media player. Built in firmware updater. Drivers were automatically installed onto my windows XP.
    Price: $229 on iriver america site. However when i bought it (or my dad bought it in korea), it was pretty pricey. some ~$300 USD. Dropping dramaticaly, because the new 6gig and 20gigs moved in.

    accesories:
    Dock
    IPB Image
    IPB Image
    IPB Image


    cons:
    well, recentlyu the new UMS firmware 2.51 changed things ALOT

    now, whenever it does a hard shut down, (as in, after u take out usb cable, or u take out batter, or just leave it charged/uncharged for days) the boot time is crazy. takes, maybe 45-60seconds.

    now, the directory. moving in between folders, etc, theres a small wait time. maybe 3-4 seconds, sometimes.


    Extra: small LCD display like the H10 owner above me said ^^
    UMS versions have the ability to be "skinned." However it isnt even a ful skin. It just replaces the bootscreen, USb connected, Ok to Disconnect, stuff.

    however, half the ppl who tried, bricked (broke) their H10's.
    i'll get a pic of the skin once im able to.

    SRS Wow: is WOW lol, its great. the sound quality is sooo.. well, its liek in ur face its that good. haha

    however, this does take more battery life, etc.

    Internation version of the H10 is NOT the same as the American/US version. ^^

    oh yeah, theres another program, called Easy H10. It does what iriver Plus and WMP does, just.. better?
    it takes awhile to get used to
    more info here: http://www.misticriver.net/showthread.php?t=20804
    it saved my H10 cuz i had a reformatted computer. with Iriver plus and drivers installed. but it screwed up my h10, in a way that the songs wud not appear under titles, nor in iriver plus.

    i just used that program, to repair the database, and everythings back to normal.

    oh yeah, haha i keep forgetting stuff that i can suddenly remember:
    it has the ability to display lyrics.
    use.. iriver LDB manager.
    on iriver homepage or on iriver america homepage, idk

    my 4gb Ipod nano. in a podstar "black out" skin (with silcone devils tail on back), adorned with clear and sapphire swarovski crystals.

    Are we reviewing or giving mostly specs?
    Specs are easy to look up so i'll just give my review

    I know some people are very anti-ipod and think it's overpriced and you can get better players. Truthfully i used to think the same way. I used to have a mini and actually gave it to my mom then getting a creative Zen Micro to fufill my music playing needs. And thought "pfft i dont need an ipod" But after some time, i missed my ipod. The simplicity of it. And when the nano came out, i had to have it. I have a big thing for miniture items. Great size, if you buy a clear skin and case then no scratches. Touch wheel is awesome compared to the zen micro (zen micro TOO sensitive even at it's lowest sensitivity). Has games so its pretty cool.

    Cons: not the best idea for photoviewing since the screen is so small
    only compatible with itunes, meaning for me about 500 of my songs are strictly windows media compatible so it could not be loaded on to my nano. If someone knows how to change windows media file songs so its able to play on itunes, PLEASE do tell.

    Final thought: You either hate or love apple. If you love or even just like apple, nothing can ever replace it.

    MPIO FY200

    IPB Image

    Capacity: 128/256/512 mb (i have the 128 mb one which only holds abt 30-50 songs =T... i didnt know much abt mp3 players at that time when i bought it)
    Format: flash
    Features: fm radio, voice recorder, direct encoding function
    Battery: 11 hrs on one AAA battery
    Player Interface: a 2 way joystick
    Software: mpio manager.. quick upload (drag and drop)
    Price: $179 when i got it 2 years ago.. so the price has probably gone way down (probably less than $100) with the release of ipods and such

    this is good for ppl who dont need that much memory space and js want a simple mp3 player... i only add the songs that i like at the moment and listen to those. it's really easy to use and it doesnt break easily. ive dropped it a couple of times but there are hardly any scratches and the few that are there are barely noticeable. it's small and it looks nice, not kinda weirdly shaped or chunky like the iriver flash mp3 player equivalents. the one thing i dont really like is that it uses AAA batteries... runs out fairly quickly (i hafta change it evry week and a half if i listen to it for an hr each day). if you dont like this one, i recommend other mpio products.. i really like how the software is easy to use and the designs are simple yet classy.

    Fm radio and FM/voice recorder. Price is around 140 USD I think? I got the 1gb version brand new in box for 70 from a friend. It comes with an armband to keep it lock to your arm or something when you jog, which is perfect. It has a clear gel-like case that comes with it, with an attached clip. It's good since you can clip it to your belt or something if you don't want to carry it or leave it in the pocket.

    The menus are accessible through the button, and I personally like it much more than the 4 directional buttons.

    The software included is called iRiver iFP series. It has a good interface, fast, and it's easy to use. Doesnt require yu to line up all yur music and then transfer, all yu need to do is simply click and drag any file yu want.


    Extra:
    The mp3 comes with built-in neck earphones but that can be deattached and replaced with a neck holder giving yu the desire to put any earphone yu want. the N10 currently has 4 colours; black WHITE (seen in SE7EN's MV tattoo), blue and red, the screen (if yu buy in black) looks like a mirror until yu switch it on, this makes the screen impossible to see in the sun. The N10 gives yu mutiple choices of screensavers and languages including korean, japanese, english etc.... the 3D equiliser makes yur music sound like it's echoeing around the room, like yur actually there. This has happen to me numerous times in the UK, people will tend to come up to yu and ask 'where did yu get that mp3 from mate???' 'it looks so cool' blahblah lol so be prepared.

    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.

    Creative Zen Micro 5GB
    This is my current mp3 player. I bought it in the summer.
    I love the headphones--great sound.
    The transfer rate was QUICK! No freezing this time.
    But when you use Media Explorer and you rename/delete songs, after it's done it automatically goes back up to the top. That bothered me.
    For some reason, after that firmware update that made you use WMP to synch your songs, my player went weird..
    Half of my songs were mysteriously deleted.
    The battery life just went DEAD. After it was fully charged, if you played it and then turned it off, a block of the battery was gone.
    The headphone jack broke. You couldn't hear sounds in both earbuds if the jack was jostled.
    BUT! The Creative warranty is awesome. It lasts a full year after the date of purchase.
    So I sent mine back and they replaced it! It's brand new.
    It's currently being shipped back to me.
    If it screws up again, I'm gonna buy a smaller 512 or 1GB player =_=;

    let me serenade your soul.

    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 _ _"
