What to look for?
- Capacity This should reflect what you are using the mp3 player for. If you want it for short term gym use , go for a small widget with solid state memory . If you want make “music collection on the move ” a reality , go for a hard drive based jukebox . 1gb=250 songs.
- Size Portable is a very broad term. THe large hard drives are certainly pocketable but, when it comes to use for physical activities , they are trumped by the tiny , durable “sports ” players.
- Compatibility Make sure your computer has firewire or USB 2.0, otherwise you could be in for a long wait when transferring files(syncing).
- Battery life Hard Drive jukeboxes will last around 10-15 hours, solid state mp3 player last longer .

i love to hear music everyday on my ipod mp3 player as well as on my cellphone mp3 player.’;;
I actually have the Zen Stone. It is so cute. It cost me around 60 BGN (in my country bgn is what the money are called), which is around 30 euro or $40. But I have ot for more than a year now. It is 1gb and I read thaht the battery can hold for around 9 hours. I have not actually measured it. And it is very loud if I may say.
I really wanted to take the other Zen model, with the display and speakers but it got I pretty higher price. I barely could afford this one, but I really wanted to have something from Creative :). They are awesome. And it is still working fine by the way. I recommend it. It has the function to change the folder, which is pretty cool.
