Recommend me a consumer product

Postby leokef on Sun Sep 05, 2010 11:58 pm

General consumer reports thread now that I made my decision.

After years of service, my CD player broke down. Time to move on to better technology, I guess, only I don't know jack about mp3 players. You guys are much hipper than me, so I'd appreciate some help here. I'll be buying from Amazon.com since I just traded in some stuff for a credit. Price range is maybe $40 with an absolute max of $50.

Suggestions?

Sandisk usually makes nice inexpensive yet very reliable MP3 players. Most of them are expandable with micro SD cards as well.

I hear those Creative Zen and Zen Stone are pretty good. I got a second gen iPod Shuffle, myself.

Have some German pop music.

Not sure exactly how big you were looking, but Creative MP3 players are by far the best. If I didn't have a free iPod, I'd have this one.

I have a creative Zen Nano that I got ages ago and it has recently replaced my iPod as I would rather drag and drop shit than have to install iTunes on my new computer

Smartphone batteries don't last very long, though.

Most will last you long enough, assuming you keep the screen off while you're listening and recharge it every night.

I agree with Eulogic, I know shocking.

If you're in the market for inexpensive mp3 player tho, I would also have to say Creative Zen.

If you're ever in the market for expensive mp3 player that offers the best UI experience of any portable device ever, I cannot say enough good things about Zune. I know, also shocking. But I love my Zune to pieces, I love the Zune marketplace to pieces, and I love the Zune pass more than words can say.

Zune zune zune, I love zune.

Also, if you're gonna get a smartphone, get Android. And don't forget to download the Pandora app. :biggrin:

Zune has a pretty sweet interface. I switched out my iPod for a Zune about 5 years ago and it was quite an improvement. Also not dealing with iTunes (yes, I know you don't have to with an iPod) is very nice.

Don't even get me started on iTunes. Also the zune software for you pc is magical, it has a feature called smart dj that creates playlists based on certain bands you like, I'd have to say it's better than Pandora.

Pip's suggestion is on the spot for your budget. Either the or the should be fine. The is even cheaper anyway.Sound quality/battery life is fairly decent for the price and the storage is kinda unlimited with the storage cards.
