OT: Best PMP or Mp3 player IYO

Sadly, after several years of great service my Zen Vision:M player died after going swimming. I'm looking for anything but an ipod.

Wish I could help, but after seven years of using the iPod, I am on my second with no end in sight. I just like it, nothing more, nothing less.

Hi Jorpe, I too had a Creative Zen, mine was just the 4 gig Micro lasted me close to nine years about two years ago I bought a new battery off ebay for it, but like all good items after a long run it died. So back in Feb I bought an Archos 605. Newegg.com - Recertified: ARCHOS 4.3" Gray 30GB MP3 / MP4 Player 605WiFi
So far I have to say I really like this item. I dont use it for web since it is slow on the wifi, but for streaming music and loading video it works great, has made my plane rides much easier on me with music and videos to watch. Just remember dont buy the extra items from them there is another site that has them legally open so do your googling before hand.

What are your usage patterns....mostly music, mostly videos? How much space are you looking to have in a new player? The more details you give me, the better advice I can give....these things are my main hobby, I have three of them.

I used my vision:M to do everything from watch seasons of entourage while working or snowboard when it was -35 with wind chill, I even used it working on drilling rigs. Is there any all inclusive player like that nowadays not tied to eye toons or zewn?

I would try the website anythingbutipod.com. They have reviews of all kinds of PMP devices. I personally had a Samsung P2, which was great until I had a program and Samsungs service sucks.. I wish I could be of more help, but I switched to an iPod touch, which I love

For great sound and good video capability, the big three are probably the Samsung P3, the Cowon S9, and the Sony X-series, if you want to avoid iTunes and Zune.

They can all be had in 32GB capacity, and are all flash memory based, unlike the Z:VM's hard drive memory. Unfortunately, the newer Zen's don't live up to the legacy of the Vision:M.

You can access reviews of all of these players at Review Index. Hope this helps!

I found a sansa player on slickdeals which will get me through until a better one arrives, but I'd really like more than 2gb capacity.

Any new opinions since this thread died?
