    This site has some good comments why you should not buy an Ipod, but they don't say anything about other MP3 players. I dont wanna start a debate about how good the Ipod is. I just wanna ask if anyone can name 1 or more MP3 players that are a good alternative and why it is as good as the Ipod or beter

    Sony HD-3 or something like that.

    Drag and drop, no Itunes shit,
    Supports more formtats,
    Smaller,
    Nicer OS, very easy to make your own playlists and stuff,
    Cheaper by loads (20gb Ipod = 220 20gb Song = 180)
    Comes with headphones, nice carry case and other extras (Ipod comes with itunes)
    Can be used as a hard dribe

    There are more as well. My friend had an Ipod and he hated everything about it, he sold it on ebay and ordered his Sony, he now spits at people who own Ipods

    -Excellent sized HDD's.
    -Decent priced.

    I've got a 60gb Creative Zen myself. The software to put the music (and other data files) onto the player is shit but everything else is pretty decent. Long life batteries, huge size all for 250.

    This debate has been discussed quite a few times (even in PC Gamer UK... ). In a lot of these cases, the iRiver has been scored a bit higher than the iPod.

    Can't really say anything on the subject myself - Rarely have a time my laptop can't do the job

    im geting a gmini xs200 i dont see why i should get an ipod other than the interface. This thing is not even an once heavier then the ipod mini and it holds 20 gigs and it is 2/3 of the size of a regualr ipod. Only down side a battery life of ten hours, but i rarley listen to that much music straight, or when im not aroungd an electircal outlet. aybe a international flight, but i also have a laptop and the inflight movies to fill the rest of my time. Oh also the gmini along with being 2/3 the size and it is almost 2/3 the price of an ipod

    according to what I've read, the Sony HD3 has to use navtive software for transferring files & songs.

    That's too bad, as I generally prefer Sony products.

    From all I've read, I'd probably go with an iRiver H340
