View Full Version : Help choosing portable MP3 player
05-14-06, 06:09 PM
Alright, I might be down to 3 finalist.
Creative Zen Micro 5gb for 999₪
Creative Zen Touch 20gb for 1320₪
Iriver H10 20gb for 1250₪
(exchange ratio is 1$=4.5₪)
I'm leaning towards the Micro because of the price tag and I don't own more then 3gb of music but adding only 250₪ gets me 20gb.
Can someone give me advice here please :beer:

my advice, get something that allows you to use your own ripped music from your cds :)
How much music do you own? If you plan on ever having more than that on your mp3 player, I would recommend going up to the larger size. In theory, it's real easy to just go on and switch out what you "don't feel like listening to that day", but really, this starts to get old...It did for me, anyways. I've heard really good things from some of my friends about iRiver products; and I don't know about you, but I'm personally not a huge fan of the creative interface. I'm sure you would be happy with any of those, they're all good products; personally, I'd go with the iRiver H10.

I've got around 3gb of music gross now meaning I listen to only about half of that.
My friends roommate has the Iriver H10 and my friend says it sucks although I think my friend is an Ipod fanboy but he will never admit it.
Maybe I should just get a 1gb Sansa and call it a day......
I've got no idea what to do......

I would look at what the players offer with regards to user freedom, some players make it exceptionally difficault to take media back of the device
my creative player is nice, and im pretty sure you can take music back off the device
and you can add any music to it ive come across
get a creative player
Not to throw a monkey wrench into the deal...but have you checked out www.jetaudio.com?
My wife has a small U2 and it kicks butt with all the features and stuff it has. Also the company seems to be realy on top of updating firmwares.

From what I've read, the Creative Zen Micro's have pretty good sound quality.
But I like my Rio Carbon. I've had it for a couple of years now..

Thanks for the advice people.
I've come up with this list and it seems the Zen Touch and the Iriver H10 are the best deals out there.
I like the Iaudio but its expensive in Israel :(
