Sonicfantom...lol...Welcome to ABi...we are not necessarily iPod-haters here. In fact, lots of people have em around these parts. :-)

They are fine if you want to spend waaaay more money than you need to to get players that don't offer good EQ/custom EQ, require you to use iTunes, enjoy proprietary connectors and throw in other stuff you might not want/need [really, a camera for my Nano? Wow, I guess I can dump my dedicated point and shoot Sony now, huh?].

But 6billion people on the planet - different strokes for different folks.

In fairness though, look at the date of Marv's post - from 2008. This list is now irrelevant IMO as models from Sony, Cowon and Samsung, all flash based were released after the fact.

As an iPod hater, just complaining

We need a 2010 version, we should set up a poll or something?

Well,I just replaced my Ipod touch with a Cowon J3 and I can honnestly say that the Ipod should not be in the same list as the Cowon that's for sure.I'm of course talking about SQ here,which is the reason I own a MP3 player in the first place.

The problem I see with a 2010/2011 list is that there may not be 10 good players to list.

Well hopefully Sansa's announcement later this year is an improvement (or even a stay the same) on the Clip+. So there's one.

I'm able to state that I Actually Do agree w/creative being in front of the apple ipods for SQ, features, looks, performance was solid for me personally w/my Zen 32gb
Creative sux!!! The SQ of creative is nowhere NEAR my iPods, or my Cowon, Sansa, or Sony mp3 players. And saying an iPod has crap SQ is showing a lack of knowledge,...and just being biased. Save that for somewhere else!!!

I should mention at this point the fact that I had a Zen X-Fi, until it's warranty ran out. It died about 2 days later.

I had a Creative Zen 2GB,I'm not sure about the SQ since I didn't know anything about good SQ back then when I had it lol But that thing is even more durable than my Samsung Strive vertical sliding qwerty phone. Its been in rain,snow and been banged hundreds of times,the screen never gave any problems,this made me love plastic for durability reasons on DAPs.

@the darkside
the sq of creative players do not suck really. i've had two creative players and they weren't that bad. actually i think that the sq was better on the x-fi2 than on the clip.
and yeah, the sq is worse as on a sony player... right. i listened to the e-series and it sounded really bad. to me the overall sound was kind of artificial (even with the soundenhancements removed).

i know that your post is kind of old but you seem to put the creative players always on a bad sight...

As for me, I never listened to a Creative player, so I will reserve my comments. However, from my experience the Sansa Clip line has one of the cleanest SQs out there bar none. I cannot see how any Creative player can sound better. Maybe the same or approachable, but not better IMO.

well i do not know how the 2nd or 3rd generation sounds like but the first clip sounded for me a little too flat (back then there was no rockbox avaible).
and since sound is somehow a personal feeling everybody thinks different about it.
