Do you prefer the scroll wheel on the Fuze or the touch controls on the Fuze+?

In this case the scroll wheel wins hands down, think a poll might be nice to measure results.

I have no experience with the Fuze+, but I just checked it's user guide, and it has dedicated volume buttons. Since I dislike the scroll wheel volume control, I have to vote Fuze+.

But I really, really, really wanted to vote for the Clip+. Definitely prefer those controls.

Yeah, but I've never used the touch controls, so who knows what I would really think. I just find that I use my Fuze very little, and part of the reason is volume control, I have to look at the player to get it right. Since my other players (Clip, Clip+, Sammy Z5) have a nice volume control, I'll probably never get used to the scroll wheel volume.

I voted for scroll wheel because I love the controls on my Fuze.

I tried out the Fuze and its scroll wheel and didn't really like it.

If the d-pad was on the fuze I would have included it, sure would be nice.

I've never been able to try out the Clip+ controls....so I can't say they're better than the Fuze's...

The Fuze's scroll wheel, without a doubt.

^ forgot to add: stock scrollwheel is OK, but RB settings allow awesome control, at least for my uses...

EDIT: Sorry, spammed this post 'cause I wanted to hit 4000 before bedtime lol

+1, I too love the RB shortcuts/context menus...I can navigate around much faster than the stock firmware, maybe even as fast as the touch screen on my iPod. I like control shortcuts in general, also keyboard shortcuts, which is another reason why I love Win7

I'll take tactile controls any day. I prefer to issue an explicit command to my devices, not hope it interprets a touch correctly. I like the scroll wheel for everything but volume. I'd prefer a dedicated volume control as on my Clip and Clip+.
