MP3/iPod

Postby PackerAttack84 » Thu May 19, 2005 6:36 pm

I was just at Best Buy today looking at the MP3 players and iPods. I was just wondering if anybody has them, what they think about them, etc. How much would it end up costing me if I bought a $100 MP3 player, how much would I expect to spend on songs? Thanks in advance.

I think there are a few threads on this, so you can try diggin' 'em up in search for a bunch of comments.

For me, I have an iPod... it's been pretty good but don't know if it's just mine but it has a terrible battery life. You don't have to "spend" anything on songs if you dont want to ( }:-) ) but depends how much into music you are. I have close to 2,000 right now with alot of different types of music.

Hmm.

iPods are pretty shady on battery life, but are pretty user friendly.
All of my non-iPod friends insist that other .mp3 players are more efficient, but i'm fine with my iPod.

If you get an iPod, don't get an iPod mini. It's $50 less than the normal iPods, and as about 1/5 of the capacity.

If say you only want 200 songs, can't you just delete old songs that you don't want?

I made the mistake of buying a Ipod mini instead and even though I love it and listen to it all the time Atog is right spend the extra money for the regular Ipod.

As for battery life I havent had much trouble with it then again My car charges it pretty fast and I have it plugged in alot.

And Pack the Ipod Mini holds 1000 or a bit more so 200 songs will definatly be fine. But Im sure once you get it you will want more songs.

My recomndation says buy the regular Ipod.

My brother bought an Ipod Shuffle. Im not sure if thats the Canadian equivalent to the mini or not. Either way, it holds like 120 songs, is much smaller, and is extremely efficient on battery life. It was only like 100 bucks too. Id definately look into it if you want to save quite a bit of money.

The iPod Shuffle is different then the mini iPod. My main question is that those 120 songs, you can delete them once you get to 120 and you want to add songs, right? And just a question, how do most of you get your songs, do you pay for them song by song, or what?

iPod shuffle is a different Apple product, it's like a mini-mini-ipod that players your songs randomly, and doesn't have a screen or any of the sorting functions that normal iPods have. So i'd assume that it has a lot better battery life.

Yeah I wouldnt recomend the Shuffle unless you really just want to listen to you're music randomly all the time. If you put on a song you really like on there you're going to have to keep clicking to find it or for any song you are in the mood for.

Creatize Zen Touch is the way to go.

Search for the previous posts comparing the iPod v2 against the Creative Nomad Zen and Zen Xtra. I don't really feel like typing it all out again.
