Do You Have An IPod Or Other MP3 Player?

Sat Sep 27, 2003 4:51 pm

I was reading earlier about how digital music players were taking over. I have an older 10gb iPod with 4.1 days worth of music on it. What kind of MP3 player do you have and how does your collection add up?

I bought a little iRiver player with 128 mb of storage. I just wanted something tiny that I could use while biking.

I have a Rio500 with a total of 128 mb of storage. It's just enough for running and biking.

Nomad MuVo. It's 128mb, which is perfect for the bus or whatever.

It directly plugs into a USB port, and when you take it out, it's a portable USB drive about the size of your thumb.

I love it, decent battery life (~10 hours or so) small, light, pretty good quality sound.

Only $115 was the kicker.

My girlfriend has a no-name mp3 player but it is a nice one because it has 128 mb of storage, an USB port and the display has blue light.

I have one my brother gave me. It's not an IPOD (I'm not a Mac user). It just says Digital Data Player V-MP3H on it. I think it's 20G but I could be wrong. It can play videos too if they are compressed correctly. It sucks though that the battery won't hold a charge anymore so I can only use it plugged in.

I have the second generation 10 GB iPod with 4.7 days worth of music in it. That translates to 1584 songs and 7.06 GB.

iPod 10 Gb. Taking it back to best buy for a new one (replacement plan). batter drains faster than it should (even when it's off) and buttons aren't as sensitive as they used to be.

A bit dissapointed with it. Annoying that it doesn't have a quick off button, but instead you have to hold down the play button for a few seconds, and it takes a few trys with mine because the button isn't that responsive.

Have nothing yet. Is the iPod actually worth that expense? Seems very pricey to me.

i think the ipod is worth the money, I LOVE mine! it holds gigs of songs rather than MBs and is known for the quality. it is all touch so it has no moving parts and impresses the friends, and it works with my gateway and my imac. you just have to shop around...there are cheap ones out there.

It may not be portable, but this will be good for me until it dies:

Sony CFD-S20CP MP3 CD/Radio/Cassette Recorder Boombox (Blue)



It's actually really small to me, like 16 inches wide.

MPIO 256MB flash player. Works great for biking, hiking, running or whatever else. Battery lasts 10 or 11 hours. Works great.

I have this "iRock" mp3 player I bought a couple of years ago for $40 or something like that. It was alright, it was good to listen to on car rides or jogging, but it was a bit rough around the edges. It only held about 8 songs and it eats through batteries really quick...after like a couple of hours. But back then, I probably couldn't get anything better for under $120

I have a Sony MP3 player. I have had it for about 2 years, I got it for christmas. I only used it for like 3 weeks though. I found it easier to just make cd's off my computer instead of tranfering them to the player, Plus they can only hold so much.

I just bought my little sister an IRiver Model iFP-38T with 128MB and it was $99 with a mail-in rebate. Is this a good product? How much are these mp3 players that have 20 GB of storage?

20 GB iPods are $329 (touchwheel) $369 (all touch interface)

Creadive Nomads are $269

They get larger than these ones too... I would say I don't think I could fill one but I remember saying I would never fill a 650MB HD in 1995  Smile
