    So my Creative Zen Touch finally packed in. I'm now looking for a new unit. I've been looking at a couple of models, notably the Ipod, the Creature Vision.

    I also saw This one. It looks nice. Downside is that its only 4GB.

    Does anyone have any good recommendations?

    Not bad, but what about budget? how much are you willing to spend and what quality are you after?

    Have you seen Cowon iaudio MP player 2gb

    Have you seen the website techsplosion?

    IPOD all the way for me mate, I used to buy cheaper MP3 players and break them in a week going down the gym, IPOD is the only one that's lasted for me.

    Mines the 30 Gb model and it's great. Also got the add on pack so that I can charge it from the mains and also the wires to plug it into the TV.

    I used to be a creative guy

    Had one of the first Nomad Zen (portable hard drive based MP3 player) imported from the states back in like 99/00, before that I had the old school Nomads

    It lasted me for YONKS actually, and finally succumbed to rain damage in 04!
    I replaced it with a Zen Sleek
    which was a POS, poor interface, crappy controls (un responsive a lot of the time) and a battery life that wouldnt get me across the atlantic, what a pile of crap

    So gave in and finally bought a 60GB Video iPod 5G
    what an impressive piece of kit, sleep, stable, pretty, brill screen
    shame itunes is crap! :)

    I actually use a phone now, the W880i, for MP3 listening... but I recommend avoiding MP3 players with colour/large screen as they can consume the battery.

    Creative Kid here.

    Zen Xtra for me. I've had my 60Gb model for about three years now - bought it when it first came out. In that time I have dropped it on numerous occasions and it still works, though i fear it is not that far from giving up the ghosts as it needs a format about once every two months now. It also regularly gets into a startup loop which can only be resolved by removing the battery, so its probably on its last legs.

    Got the wife a SanDisk for her birthday and she loves it - most improtantly it is LOUD. As she says, no point listening to Obituary if it sounds like it's being played on tinny laptop speakers...
