    What is the best mp3 player that is NOT an apple product?

    Looking to buy a new mp3 player ... but I'm also looking to avoid apple products. I am looking for some reviews, and reasons why they like a specific mp3 player.

    off the top of my head, zune is the next best-- a couple apple-opposed buddies have them and like them. i have a old creative zen that also worked ok, but really, they are all about the same, just a different interface to access the media..

    +1 for zune. I have the old 1st gen 30GB zune, still running strong as ever, plus a nice FM radio for when I need, I have heard great things about the Zune HD bu tI have not been able to play with one yet.

    Zune HD with Zune pass i hear is pretty good. Personally I use my phone. Currently an iPhone but like you it'll be the last thing I own with an apple logo on it. Prior to that I had three windows mobile phones, all worked pretty good as MP3 players.

    I have no hands-on experience, but I have heard that the Creative Zen models are good.
    I know the earlier ones would only allow media transfer using their proprietary software but I don't think that is the case now.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I quite like my Cowon i9. About the size of the iPod nano, multi format (MP3, Ogg, etc), does video, has a radio, handles album art and doesn't need any special software.

    Sansa Clip+
    It has an FM tuner, micro SD slot, simple design. Not an Jobs/app|e product
