I like creative players,personally,have one myself and cannot fault it.

You could get this Creative zen V click £54.95 delivered.

It is also available with fm radio and video playback click £69.98 delivered.

Bear in mind that it is a small player,so the video playback, whilst being a nice feature,the screen is very small,not really suitable for watching anything too long.

It gets good reviews in magazines like What Hi Fi and good customer reviews on various internet sites like Amazon and ebuyer.

Hope this helps

Here is a link to a site that may help you decide if you like the creative zen v click

If you want a good 2Gb player you should probably be looking at either the Sony NW-E005 or Creative Zen V.

The Sony wins hands down for looks, size and battery life (my g/f has one and loves it) although the software isn't the best and the display is tiny. The Zen supports video playback and has better software and will cost you about the same.

Whatever you do steer clear of iPods, they're overpriced, overrated and lock you in to buying your music from iTunes.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for all the quick replies and help. i have been searching and looking into the different options suggested and have decided to go with the Sony one. This does look really nice and I hope it doesnt have any issues playing MP3s and WMAs as I have heard some do.

Thanks to everyone for all your help and suggestions!

The Sony's will play both formats straight (at least that's what the sticker on the box said, the g/f plays MP3 all the time but hasn't tried WMA) or convert them to atrac (Sony's proprietary format).

Conversion to atrac is the default in the software but is easy enough to turn off and makes transfers to the device much quicker as no conversion is needed. However atrac does get higher compression ratios than WMA and MP3, which means you can squeeze more tracks onto it so use whichever is your preference really.

Personally I'd convert everything to MP3 as they will play on pretty much anything, and the compression ratios for WMA are awful.

I recomend the Samsung YP-Z5. a mte of mine has one and its simple to use as you only have to drag and drop, no faffing around with software.

he got his on ebay for around £50 including postage for the 2Gb version.
