which mp3 player?

I'm looking at getting an mp3 player. This is for a friend of mine. She has no firewire, so an iPod is out of the question =(

I have a 20 gig Archos Jukebox that I love. It's USB, and acts like a little harddrive. They have 6, 10 and 20 gig versions, as well as USB and USB 2. You can get versions with recording capabilites, too.

Look at Nomad Jukebox Zen. 20 GB, around $300. Unfortunately it's only USB 1 (and firewire) and looks like you have to use Creative software. Can't she just buy a firewire card?

I use an aiwa mini-cd cause it was cheap and uses cheap generic 200 mb media.

Get a CD-based mp3 player. I have a TDK Mojo620, but there's a new version that just came out. Also, check out Iriver's iMP-350 SlimX. Harddrive based players are really battery hungry so take that into consideration.

THE IPOD IS HARDDRIVE BASED BUT YOU CAN GET 10 TO 11 HOURS ON A CHARGE AND IT CHARGES IN A FEW HOURS SO ITS NOT TO BAD

SORRY FOR THE ALL CAPS BUT MY KEYBOARD IS BROKEN AND I HAVNT RUN DOWN TO COMPUSA TO GET A NEW ONE

Like erwin1978 said, check out the imp-350 SlimX. I've one of those and its awesome. They come with rechargeable stick batteries which supposedly give 23 hrs when fully charged. The company that makes them, iRiver, just came out with the imp-400. The only things different about the new one are the finish and the addition of a car-kit. Unless you need/want them, save 80 bucks and get the imp-350 for ~$120. The SlimX is pretty much the best MP3-CD player out there among anything released before July. A lot of features (which honestly you don't need ) like WMA support, LCD 4-line display on the remote, equalizer, upgradeable firmware and some more that I don't remember. Don't know if anything better has come out since July though.

Sony makes a new minidisk mp3 player, that runs for like 72 hours on a single battery. (Or something rediculously high like that).

On a side note...anyone know of any waterproof mp3 players? I need one for swimming laps.

I don't care about features, just need mp3 playback with about 128 megs of ram, and able to withstand 5-10 feet of depth.

(Already found earbuds that'll work).

I think minidisk (NetMD) players use some insanely unconvenient format. What they do is uncompress MP3 and compress them into something else.

Ah thanks for the info dvornik. I know very little about mp3 players . Just they use batteries...and sometimes play music.
 
Old 12 December 2002   #14
