it's actually gonna be a christmas gift to my brother and his wife. i'm not sure which of them will use it. they just mentioned the ipod the other day, but they'd have to buy an apple computer to make the ipod truly useful.

so far i'm leaning towards the nomad. i was just wondering if anyone knew of one that particularly stood out.

yeah, if i ever buy an mp3 player, i'd go with the jukebox 6000...I mean, want to be able to store my entire list of mp3's and no other player comes even close to 6 GB capacity for the price

I would go to a local CompUsa and try them all out. Sometimes you buy what's prettier and not what has the most RAM.. They carry at least 8 different models.

This one unfortunately it won't be out for a few months, and maybe you can't wait that long. I have heard that archos makes good ones. I don't have one though so I can't say for sure.

i just bought a NEX II. rated 5 stars from mp3.com, if that means anything. it takes CF cards and can also take IBM Microdrives. unlimited firmware upgrades, supposedly, again whatever that means. 99 bucks plus a 256 CF card for anothr 95, total came out to be 200. it wont bother you about stupid RIAA laws and stuff when you try to move "illegal" mp3's.

Just got a Nomad IIc for a present..has 32mb onboard and takes smart media cards. I use smart media for my digital camera so i shoved in some extra 32mb i had. Also works as a tape recorder, can tape up to 2 hours on 32megs. I think this one runs for about $130 CDN w/ 32mb onboard ram, the 64mb one is like $189 CDN.
