yes definitely get one of the above listed products or a dell dj. ipods are fads and no one can see past the fact that they are overpriced for what you get. i have a dell dj, and have had it since 2003. it's the best investment i've ever made, and i'm glad i didn't give into the ipod craze.

sorry to rant like that i'm just sick of ipods.

A Dell DJ? Kidding me? My friend bought one and then had to sell it to some poor sucker on eBay. The sound quality from that thing is horrible and that selection wheel was murder.

the sound quality is fine if you have decent headphones - it sounds fine on my $20 sony headphones.

the selection wheel, IMO is better than the ipod's. you have to go around in a circle to go up or down, and then do the same thing for voume? sorry, but that's too much for me.

I have a nano, the only thing I don't like is apple wanting me to pay 50 bucks for a radio tuner, no thanks.
