What to get? What does everyone have, I am buying my first ipod and need to know what everyone has and how much they love it / hate it / problems etc...
Too many Mp3 players..........
Any advice? A lot of you guys seem very tech savvy...

I have an iPod Mini and use it every day when I run or work out or whatever....I love it. I haven't even used 25% of the storage space.

i have a 60gig iPod video and an old school iPod. Microsoft is supposed to be coming out with an "iPod Killer" here real soon. It will be somehow "completely compatible" with the xbox 360, in other words, extending the 360's features somehow.

i have the 30g video. love it except i dont use it that much now that i dont ride the bus but the only problem is the battery life isnt that great and it has to be charged.
for those of you that run with it, have you had any reprocussions from the jarring?
I have a 30 GB Archos AV500.

The only thing about the nanos is I've heard they can break easily in a pants pocket because they are so thin..
I have researched countless Mp3 players and the gig to dollar ratio heavily weighs in favor of the ipod, plus it's just a more rounded player. It's what I'm going with.

I run with my iPod mini almost every day, sometimes twice a day. I've had it for a year....the only problem I have is that I think the battery life should be forever! Hence, user error by not plugging it in. No jarring issues at all. I have a belt clip on it and I clip it on to my shorts or my sweats and off I go. I love it.

I run with my nano, I have a case that attaches to an arm band and no problems what so ever. Heck I wear the arm band at work due to the fact I hate cords being in my way. The key to the battery life I've found out is not to keep the back ground light on and not have the equilizer stuff on. My battery will last a good 12 hours. Trust me I've personally experienced this. I have a wall charger for here at work, and a car charger/fm transmitter deal for the car. I rarely plug it into the computer only to upload songs.

Thanks for all the advice, looks like I am gonna get the 30GB iPod video.
I'm gonna go for the white because I am, well, a racist. :~ohyah!:
Nah, I've heard the black one scratches up pretty badly, I've seem my friend's at work and hers is pretty well scratched...
Huzzah! 279.99 is not bad either.
