Quoting Zkpilot (Thread starter): Having just upgraded from a 2nd Gen Ipod Nano to a 3rd Gen Ipod Video Nano, I thought I might just see what everyone on here has... so just update the scores as you post!
Ipod 3rd Gen Nano: 1
How are you finding it? I was thinking of getting one for my car as I'm commuting to WLG a lot these days for work, and need some tunes to drive to. Any problems your finding? I have a 1st gen nano, but its just not cool anymore.

Why do some people have so many MP3 players? How do you decide which to use? I was thinking of getting a new one, but i asked myself, what is the point? I just use it to listen to music in the gym (sometimes) or when using public transportation (sometimes).
I only have two, but will answer anyway: when I'm just out for a moment and want some music, I'll take the earphones for the phone and listen to MP3s or the radio. When I'm going to spend considerable time anywhere, such as a train, where I want more than 1GB of music to choose from, I'll take the iPod.

If you don't have a reason to take all or considerable parts of your record collection with you every now and then, you really don't need a large-capacity player. They do come in handy as well when or if you have a need for a mobile hard drive.
Conclusion: it's always the sum of functions and possibilities. I like the MP3 camera phone because, well, it lets me stay in touch, entertains me, wakes me up in the morning, takes acceptable photos of where I'm going and has an organiser holding the addresses I need and reminding me of what I'd forget otherwise.
The iPod is smoother to use, holds 20 times as many songs, is a mobile hard drive, has better sound quality and can replace my power-hungry PC as a sitting room MP3 player.

Creative Zen Micro for the win! I have had it for over 2 years now and its still going strong, although the battery is starting to die on me, its battery life is consistently decreasing to around 4 to 5 hours of music playback.

Depending on usage that sounds plausible for current battery technology. They wear out after a certain number of cycles. It's got little to do with the player manufacturer, it's simply the current state of battery technology.
