Digital hunting






I am in the midst of hunting for an MP3 player. I am still having my brain cells colliding against each other. I have yet to make up my mind. First of course is the money factor against the look and feel factor. Of course of all the current model, in my mind IPOD is still ahead with the look factor. It looks nice and upbeat. My wife is using IPOD photo, it stands out with its white color but I do not think I want to splash Rm1700k for it.

I am looking at specification which is almost the same as IPOD mini which cost around Rm1200K with a 6 GB model. It has a lot of vibrant colors to choose from, green, blue, pink and etc. However it lacks one thing, an FM tuner. I think this could be a deciding factor. After a while you tend to feel bored with the sets of music you have, you will then prefer to listen to some on the radio. On top of it, if the deejay is good enough it will provide you with some interesting views on current issues affecting the country.

My brain cells is definitely colliding very hard, think, weigh the advantages, think and decide, Oh! no, I have yet to decide. It’s still running around. I am now looking at Iriver and Creative. There is one new model introduce by Iriver which I think has finally reach the “look & feel” standard of IPOD. Today I was at Mid-Valley and I was at the IT floors and it catches my attention with its slick look. I tried it out and it was amazing. It’s small, it’s light, it has a color screen, a very good one and the sound was very clear. I am not sure if it’s due to the high volume or it’s the player. I read in one reviews, the reviewer says that its sound better than his portable CD player.

My head is burning, which one is the best? Creative came out with the Zen Model, it too has an interesting outlook. It almost has the same range of colors as Mini IPOD. It also has the small factor and it has a FM tuner. Think! Think!....Anyone has any comments….do help me…

I probably couldn't help you too much as I didn't actually shop around when I got my iPod. I was going to buy the iBook anyway, and the extra iPod was an impulse buy ($200 off). I guess you just need to weigh your options. Which features are absolutely necessary for you? Do you really need a 4GB harddrive or would 1GB be sufficient? Based on just appearance, I think iRiver has some very nice ones.

Hi Hi, I got a Creative Zen Micro (the red one), got it since last Christmas. I have no complaints about it, I think it's easier to use than the iPod, you'd get used to the scrolling pad really quickly. Enjoy your new Creative Zen Micro!
