    Which MP3 player should I get?

    Please point out any reasons why you prefer one over the other. The competition is between a 30gb Zune and a 4gb Zen.

    Neither, a 30 GB Zen (Zen photo I think is the one I mean). The Zune is supposed to be pretty good to though so of your options then I'd go for that.

    Whatever you do go for one that has a hard drive and enough memory to hold your whole music library. You will get bored with it otherwise. I own a 1GB Creative and a 20GB Sony player, guess which never gets used.

    My oldest daughter had a terrible time with her zen. It didn't even last 2 years.

    I rather like the Zen.

    Easy to use, it's light so working out is easy with it. *Do not get the Creative brand armband for it. I't useless.

    I think a subscription service is required for a Zune. I just put my ripped CD's on my Zen.

    I think I will go with this:
    Superb ratings, free shipping, 99 bucks with 20 dollar rebate! Can't go wrong.

    I've been using a Zune for a while now, and have zero complaints, especially with the new flash ROM that was introduced a couple weeks back. Because Zune accessories are inexpensive, I picked up both a stand and a wireless remote for it for a total sum of $5, new.

    I have no idea why anyone would want to buy a Zune.

    I'd have a look at Cowon's product line before pulling the trigger.
