When buying any mp3 player, the first question customers will ask is about the storage capacity. The main difference between hard drive based and the flash drive based mp3 players is that flash memory devices like iPod nano, iPod shuffle, Creative Zen Nano, and SanDisk Sansa offer extra portability, are more durable, and allow storage of up to even 32GB. Not many hard drive based mp3 players are in production but the older models offer atleast 160 GB of storage.

The advantage of the internal flash drive is that it is an electronic storage device that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed. Meaning data can be erased and reused again within its limitations. It saves a lot of space, increases the life span of the mp3 players. Most of the recent mp3 players such as Apple, SanDisk, Samsung etc have built in memory as storage. But with expansion slots you can use SD cards for additional storage.

Mentioned below are the best internal flash drive mp3 players which are rated by experts from around the world.

Pricier than predecessor.

The collaboration of an analogue tuning dial and the ipods scroll wheel is the basic idea of how the radio tuner is supposed to operate; while the idea seems great on paper, it did not function really well.

Microsoft points are confusing and incredibly anti-consumer.

The player is a bit awkward to hold because the headphone jack is on the side, jabbing into the palm of your hand.

Noise-canceling headphones.
