FUZE....great sound and price, replaceable battery, SD card, looks nice,FM radio, Recorder, Drag n Drop. I have 3 Sansas, and i like them. At this point id buy a FUZE, because i hate RENTING a player from the other companies. I call it RENTING because when the battery is dead, the player is gone.....unless you want to spend $50 to have them replace the battery. Bleh!!!
The Ipod is ok. The only attractive feature on it for me is the line-out. The sound is too ALIVE for me. Almost sounds like its playing in a big empty room sort of. The Sansa is more natural to me.
Sony has good detail.I like the Sony players too.
Zune is warm and natural also. No line-out, but it has a radio, and i love my Zunes too.
