Default Necro Thread!

I thought this might spark some debate here
www.pcworld.com/article/125906/top_10_mp3_players_flashbased.html
The list....1.Creative Zen X-Fi 32g
2. iPood Touch 32g
3.Creative Zen 32g
4.iPod Nano 16g
5.Creative Zen V Plus 4g
6.SanDisk Sansa Fuze 8g
7.Creative Zen Mozaic 2g
8.SanDisk Sansa Connect 4g
9.iRiver Spinn 8g
10.SanDisk Sansa View 32g
To quote the guy on "Iron Chef America"-
Let the battle begin!!!

edit-should this have been in general discussion?

The Cowon D2 and Sansa Clip is not in this list? What are they nuts?
The saving grace is that the iPod Touch is not first.

I just can't see the logic in the Zen X-Fi being #1 - that's an impossibility right off the bat.

the ipods need to be taken off the list, after all people don't know they are a MP3 player.

No Cowon product, Sony walkman, or a Iriver Clix?!

With Zen X-fi as the best, a Sansa Connect in the list, a Zen Mosaic in the list as well?! This chart of theirs is very inaccurate...

Yup, biased: no Sony, Cowon, Sansa,even iriver players toast ipods in SQ and video performance. They have 1 toy that has a few tricks in it, and they're considered almost the #1 player!!! Donkey DUNG!!! I can say that I DO agree w/creative being ahead of the ipods for SQ, features, looks, performance was solid for me w/my Zen 32gb.

Bwahahahaha! That list is worse than any CNET "review".

Those amateurs obviously never heard of Cowon, Samsung, Sony... oh brother. Probably just a paid advertisement disguised as a "top 10" list.

What a friggen joke. completely baffled as to how creative got 3 mediocre players in there somehow.... Mozaic is the ugliest MP3 player that has ever been conceived.... neat name and concept though.

I'm glad that the Spinn got some love though. Even though it's actually even more over priced than the friggen iTouches.... at least it's sexy.
