    Hi thinking of buying a new MP3 player & was just wondering about what people would consider the best? Have been looking at IPOD Classic - is it the best, better because of accessories? etc, also Sony Walkman Video MP3 & Zen X-FI which looks like good quality screen & picture quality?

    Also it looks favourable to have one with upgradeable SD cards etc? I would be requiring a large downloadable space.

    As mentioned with IPOD I would probably be going for Bose docking station (can any mp3 connect?)

    Also I would want to drag & drop alot of files/Mp3's can all do this?

    Its a substantial investment so would apprciate any help/views/comments
    Unsure of correct forum?

    Thxs

    Hey,

    Ipod's are really annoying with what you can put on them and you can't just drag and drop, they require you to use itunes and one you get your ipod set up on one computer thats the only computer you can use it with, otherwise it deletes all the files and sets it up for the new computer. As for the docking bays I really don't know that much about them but if you wanted it to dock different types of mp3's then they would all have to have the same connection port. I recommend buying a Zune. They have better screen quality and more space for less money, plus they aren't software specific and they allow you to put anything on there that you want. So you can drag and drop movies, music, games and even word documents (They won't open on the Zune but you can use it like a flash drive and open it on another computer). Overall I think Zunes are the best buy for the price.

    Well, that's too bad. I thought Zunes have been around forever. You always have the option to order it and ship over seas although that would be pretty pricey.
