Need help choosing a new MP3/4 player

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone!

 

I'm new here on these forums, and I thought I might ask your advice.

 

My old Creative Zen is slowly dying out(audio jack doesn't connect perfectly anymore leading to weird sound jumps when the cable moves, and battery life has gone from 20 hours to about 5) and I'm looking for a replacement.

 

I've got some requirements. Considering the size of my library, I'll need at least 32GB of storage. I'd like a SD slot as well. The player itself can have a smaller storage capacity of, say, 16 GB, as long as it integrates the music stored on the SD card.

 

I mostly just listen to music, with the occasional video. I don't need any apps. Videoquality doesn't need to be very high, since that's not the main use of the device. I've got a laptop running a 64bits win7 and a desktop running a 32bits vista, and I would like them both to be compatible with the player.

 

My budget tops out at about 200 pounds/230~ euro's.

 

Also, I've tried Ipods before, and I really disliked using the click/touch wheel thingy.

 

I'm kind of getting lost in the available options, and I'd really like help in choosing a new player.

 

 

 

Thanks in advance!

Cowon C2. Great battery life, takes SD cards, drag and drop loading, mainly a music player, and best of all, the sound quality is among the best. This model has hardware based EQ too. The interface is a little sucky, but everything else makes up for it by far.
