Well I'm stuck between the Zune HD, 3G iPod Touch, and Sony X1000. I'm definitely getting an ipod touch for the pda/mini computer functionality. What capacity I get or whether I decide to get the Zune HD depends on sound quality.
Anyways, all of my music comes from CD's I own but I would hate to have to retag everything. Does anyone know how well the current Zunes read AAC tags that have been made through iTunes? Also, do the Zunes display lyrics?
i also found the touch 1g to be a good sounding machine. it had a couple of drawbacks however: hiss levels are higher than the 5.5 or most of the recent ipods. Compared to the 2G (which i prefer because of volume rocker, no hiss and no bass rolloff), it is lusher, though less energetic in the high end.
I have loved both. Looking forward to hearing the Zune HD though. I'd rather not read comparisons here as I know the outcome before ever reading. There won't be any love for the touch, no matter how good it actually is.
I had the Touch 2G, and I had owned the 5.5G before (it was stolen). I sold my Touch 2G, and have an S9 (I prefer the video quality of it). I love the SQ of the 5.5G, more so than the Touch 2G I had. I'll be loving the Touch 3G no matter what - as I'll bet the SQ will be crystal clear. As for the S9 - I find the SQ is amazing, but it's mostly for my videos.

I've got a 5G iPod Video that I've been using forever, but the hard drive is dying on it. I'm thinking that I'll switch out the hard drive and leave it in my car and buy either an iPod Touch, Sony X1000 or a Zune for the train and school.
I want to get the Sony but my iTunes dependency is killing me. I've got a bunch of tracks in apple lossless and converting them to whatever lossless format Sony or Zune supports is going to suck. Bringing my larger playlist over to the other players from iTunes seems like it'd be troublesome too.
I'm going to be buying a Mac soon so I don't know if the Sony or the Zune will play nice with it. Decisions, decisions...
