I would probably say the Ipod, it's been out there longer, and it works pretty well. I got a DJ back when it was new, I only have the 5GB pocket DJ, but have thought about getting an iPod, but really 5GB is absolutely fine, it does exactly what I want. But anyhow, if you want 30, that's you and I would go with the iPod. Both are from big companies though, but I imagine the iPod realm is much more extensive. Only thing is, I hear iTunes is a hassle.
