    Default MP3 Players

    Aside from iPod, does anyone have any recommendations on which ones are best?

    Depends how much memory you need;

    Shuffle alternative: Creative Zen Stone Plus.

    Nano alternative: Cowon iAudio 7 or Creative Zen.

    I have a creative zen sleek photo 30gig, and i think it is better than the ipod. It is also cheaper than a 30 gig Ipod.

    its sort of outdated now i guess. I also enjoy the Zune.

    I don't have any specific recommendations ('cause I'm an iPod whore) but I will say one awesome thing about USB players (ones w/ built in usb connector) is some newer car stereos (i.e. aftermarket units) support them so you can play the music on your player direct through your car stereo. No aux cable required. Many of them support the iPod too (using a separate iPod dock cable)

    Yeah I'm a bit of a quality whore, so I only do car setups with direct data links (no headphone/aux cables--just iPod dock or USB). Being able to control the player from the stereo's front panel is critical too because it's a little bit safer than looking to the side or down to fumble with some small gadget.

    Can you control the the player with the stereo's front panel with a USB hook up?

    I've got a 30gb Creative Zen Vision M, and while it's probably a bit outdated now, I still like it a lot. I've heard good things about the current creative players.

    A friend of mine has the Zune, and if I were buying one now, that's what I'd get, very nice in my opinion.

    Yeah, the ones I've read basically use the USB player as a dumb hard drive and read the mp3s from it. So the headunit is its own mp3 player, it justs use the usb player as an HD. You can likewise just shove a usb flash drive in there full of mp3s.

    Cool, thanks. Unfortunately, I don't have an MP3 player unit in my car so I have to wait on the car bit.
