Yes, but being an iPod owner, there's a very good reason for that. I owned a few other MP3 devices before I decided to take the Apple plunge with the rest of America. What I found is that a minority of them were shoddily built. One broke the first week I had it. A second issue was that the interfaces at time were a bit confusing or not as smooth/organized as the iPod's interface was. Lastly, the iPod's method of scrolling, the wheel is vastly superior to clicking an arrow repeatedly. Some players are coming close though.Originally Posted by paintba||er
My current favorite alternate choice to the iPod:
Meizu 4GB mp3/mp4 player @$99
iPod Shuffle 1GB mp3 player @69.99
3 gigs + video capability in a player for 30 dollars? I'd say that the Meizu's a great alternative.
Anyways. Those're my two cents.
