Need a recommendation for under $150

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My iPod video just died on me, and currently looking for a new replacement.

 

So looking for an 8GB or more, high/great sound quality.

 

I don't really need a video function as I don't even play movies/videos on my iPod.

 

Suggestions and advices will be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers!

Sansa Clip+ plus a 16Gb microSD.

Read that the Clip+ is rather overrated in terms of sound quality, but a very good value for the price.

 

I narrowed it down to a used:

 

Zune 80GB

iPod Touch (2nd Gen)

iPod 5th Gen

Cowon S9

Samsung P3

 

Out of these, which one are the best candidate?

I think the hippo gumstick or the sony s639f are much better options.

oh yea!! I forgot to add the Sony S series as well.

 

I just don't see any reviews on them, and wondering about their sound quality.

 

As for the hippo, not impress with the battery life.

iPod Touch (2nd Gen)

Sansa Clip+ Rockboxed

Sansa Fuze Rockboxed

maybe used Sony X1050 or maybe a Sflo2, but you cant go wrong with the first three
