I just bought a Rio Sport that you can upgrade to that I think. It has a FM band also. I think it has 128 built in. I've never used it and don't really need it if you need a sporty one.

Define "portable". Do you want a walkman-like device, a boombox-style system, or something for your car?

no jogging in the car, and sitting at my desk at work would be the target useage locations

I have an Ipod. Nothing beats it. We were having this discussion last night, a few friends and I. We basically ended up looking at everyone out there including teh new Dell one. Ipod is the industry standard for a reason. When I got mine, I just put my entire music folder into it. Now its almost full[:D] I have the 10 gig one. The new ones are even nicer, and slimmer.

iPod. Hands down. Human engineering is there in spades. Ease of use, ease of loading things on, etc. Both PC and Mac. (for PC, snag [url=http://www.ephpod.com]Ephpod[/url].) I have the older/first generation, the 20gb model. It's a little larger than the current ones..and as I'm a larger guy with larger fingers, it's easier for me to manipulate. Having said that...it's the end-all, be-all of portable MP3 players. None others are as easy to use, or as easy to update/change. Plug in the FireWire, and away you go. I've had exactily one problem with mine, and I've had it for near a year. One problem which was solved by re-dumping all the MP3's i wanted to listen to, onto it. You can't get better than that.

Another vote for iPod. Pretty much the best thing out there right now.

IPod is great, but if you cant afford one then give the Dell DJ a look. I have the Dell DJ 20gig and love it.

Bushmaster makes the best.

it's to bad the price isn't proportional to the storage space, i only want about 500 megs it seems that the capcaties of available players either jump from 128 or 256 up to 10 gigs getting a smaller player with removable memory stick capability and a stick to bring the capcity up to 500+ will cost about as much as getting an ipod

Bought a rio Cali 256 mb + a 256 mb sd card specifically for workouts.. [URL=http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/shop/_templates/item_main_Rio.asp?model=214&cat=54]http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/shop/_templates/item_main_Rio.asp?model=214&cat=54[/URL] Hard drive players like Ipods are not a good idea for workouts... best to go with flash player If you just wanna carry tons of tunes then go with the Ipod...just be sure to get a warranty in case the ireplacable batts die. Here's a deal for a rio Nitrus (1.5 GB) for like 130 bucks [URL=http://www.riovolution.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1223]http://www.riovolution.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1223[/URL]

iPod baby.. Best on the market, great to use.

If you're a techie, then the Iriver is better than the Ipod. [URL]http://www.iriveramerica.com/products/hd_index.asp[/URL] Supports more formats, has more stuff built in. Doesn't support that fag Steve Jobs.

I have the new 20GB iPod and love it! I also use it as a portable hard drive.

I recently purchased a MPIO player. So far I love it. Ask me again in about 6 months, by then I should know if it's a pos.

Ipod I got the 15 gig works great. trust me you think you only need xxx space but get more you will quickly relize you it gets filled fast.

Ipods rule, but you dont want it for jogging. impact is bad for hard drives. I got a tiny little player called a Fuxion Genie. Its 128 megs and weighs nothing, all you need for jogging. Google them and check it out.

This is nonsense. I have an original iPod that I use for all my workout. Jogging is just fine. THe HD spins about 10 seconds everytime the song changes, and it is designed to withstand 50G shok while operating. X-games freestyle MX-ers don't have that much shock. Buy the iPod and love it. Geoff

Yeah Ipod all the way, I have an old style 10-gig model. getting close to 1000 songs on it (along with a few hour longs mixes, and concerts) I mean they can't be beat,
