I currently use the venerable Creative Zen USB 2.0 20 GB mp3 player. It is good for what it does. However, the built-in HDD sounds like it may die soon… which will “force” me to find a replacement! 😛
It’s really nice having a HDD-based mp3 player. Why? I get to carry ALL of my CD collection (200+) on it! So my next mp3 player would also be 20 GB (or better yet, 30 GB!) player… the biggest $1m question is… “Which one?”
There are million brands out there and then there’s the Apple’s iPod. I for one don’t care much (if any) for it. I care more for functionality and value over how pretty it is and what color it comes in. Hee…
Additionally, with the advancement in technology, I decided that I’d want to watch stuff on it too! 😮 How cool would it be to watch my TV shows on it whenever I get a chance to! And in this category, it seems that my motherland of South Korea has two really good offerings!
1. Digital Cube’s i-Station i2 and the new V43 (higher res screen!)
Here’s a pic of V43! It has 4.3″ screen with 480 X 272 TOUCHSCREEN!
And the slightly older i2 (and smaller at 3.5″)…
And next… we have…
2. Cowon A2 with 4″ LCD screen! I gotta stop drooling… 😛
Both support DivX-encoded videos and both have at least 20 GB storage… the final question? The price! Ouch… don’t ask yet. At least $300 in Korea last time I checked… Oh well… I guess watching “24” on such tiny thing wouldn’t be that awesome! (Oh, yes it would!) K… bye for now. 😉
