Best Nano Yet
Upon unboxing I noted that the unit was exceptionally thin with a nice feel to it. The user interface is Apple easy (as is usually the case with Apple) and I was able to get it up and running in a few minutes. I did note that no charger is included with the Nano but the Lightning connector does have a USB plug which works fine in my existing charger blocks.
Slim body, Responsive touchscreen, Easy to use interface
The 2012 iPod nano 7th generation doesn't have the chops to make the same impact as a new iPod touch or iPhone 5. Its screen isn't great in some respects, it's a bit expensive and it doesn't do all that much. However, it's so much of a joy to use on a day-to-day basis that we can learn to accept most of its limitations. Strong design and Apple's excellent UI are enough to mitigate this partly underwhelming redesign.
New home button and longer screen offer a familiar smartphone-style interface
The seventh-generation iPod Nano is a fine product, but we're not entirely sure who it's for. It comes across like a breeding experiment between an iPod Shuffle and iPod Touch. The kid is cute, but we think most people will be better served by its parents.
For fitness types, the physical controls, simplicity, clip-on design and AU$55 price of the iPod Shuffle make it seem like the better deal.
Larger screen makes Multi-Touch much more usable than with previous model
Those who loved the previous iPod nano's built-in clip and square shape - especially folks who used the nano as a clip-on workout companion or a makeshift wristwatch - will lament the latest model's taller, clipless design. But as handy (or, if you will, hands-free) as that clip was - and for many people it might be useful enough for Apple to consider a similar product separate from the nano line - dropping it let Apple make the new iPod nano remarkably thin and light.
Good capacity, great design, sounds ace, FM radio is brilliant, Nike+ sync, lovely screen
If we were really feeling picky, we could say that the nano is a bit too expensive. And, we suppose, compared to other products, it might be a bit more pricey. But you get the Nike+ facilities built-in, there's the radio and brilliant video playback and it looks and sounds great.
Bluetooth, Multi-touch, Nike+ Fitness built-in, FM Radio built-in
An improvement on last year's iPod nano, mainly thanks to the inclusion of video playback. We found the general design and shape more pleasing too, and we can live without the clip that the last generation had - the nano is so lightweight that slipping it into a pocket while exercising is easy.
Of course, if you haven't got a free pocket in your exercise hear you may have to invest in a case that attaches it to your body in some way.
Very thin and light, 2.5in screen, improved headphones
The new nano has a bigger screen than its predecessor making it a much better bet for video watching. It makes sorting and playing your music easy when you're on the move, and it sounds even better thanks to the new EarPod earphones. The new power/sync port will be a nuisance if you like to use it with an iPod dock (you'll need an adaptor) but otherwise it's an excellent addition to the range.
Yet another impressive apple product
I bought the ipod shuffle because the ipod touch just seemed a little too big and a little too involved to take with me while running. It shames me to even say that... years ago I ran with a walkman cassette player that probably weighed 4 lbs and was about 50x as big... Anyway, for my purposes, the shuffle is perfect. It is tiny, light weight, and has a clip that will actually hold it onto your clothing pretty much anywhere you want to clip it.
The iPod Shuffle's buttons are back, and the lightest, smallest MP3 player on the planet is now better than ever.

Quality app ecosystem
The 4th Generation iPad is only a minor improvement over its predecessor but still remains the tablet to beat. An upgraded A6X processor, Apple's new Lightning connector and a better front facing camera are the main differences. All in all this is an iterative upgrade that should only interest those who don't already own a 3rd Generation iPad.
This Is a Great PMP Device
Over all, I love this PMP- I've been watching it since February and I finally got my dirty hands on it. Should you buy this device you ask? It's up to you. I jumped from my ipod 4G to this, so yeah. it depends on the person! I'm not a fan boy, I just want a PMP that works for ME. I don't care what people say about something when I haven't even given it a try yet.
Feels very well built
As an iPod touch alternative, the Galaxy Player 5 offers much to like - especially if you are already familiar with Android and have invested money in the ecosystem. Audio playback through the stock Samsung music app is of poor quality, but the Android advantage means that you have the ability to choose third-party player options from the Android Market. If you are looking for a taste of Android without the cost of cellular service, the Galaxy Player 5 is a good Android device to tinker with.
Front stereo speakers, Kies Air app
While there's nothing inherently wrong with the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 and the concept of a cellular (and contract) free Android device is admirable, it's doomed to be a niche product aimed at entertaining kids whose parents are already fans of Google's mobile ecosystem.
Samsung could soon find its niche even smaller thanks to Google's Nexus 7 tablet, which offers better hardware and a larger display at the same price.
Slow single core CPUs, Galaxy Player 3.6 screen is poor
The market for portable media players is shrinking in the US, but for those of you with kids or feature phones, they still make sense. The Samsung Galaxy Players give you all the joy of an Android smartphone minus the cellular radio and monthly data charges. Though these lack the gaming horsepower of the latest iPod Touch, they do offer Adobe Flash Player and Android's openness and customization.
Solid build construction, lightweight feel
We've said it before people and we'll continue to say it again - well, that's unless a future variant is outfitted with better hardware. On the outside, it's fairly evident that the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 is a beefy looking dedicated media device, but inside, it doesn't proudly see any love whatsoever as it sports the same set of hardware that's used on the Galaxy Player 3.6.
Excellent basic MP3 player for rec. use
bought this mp3 player for listening to music during exercise. It's absolutely wonderful, and easy to figure out. I have no problem using the Music Go software with it, as I don't care about Media Player or any of that. I import my own CDs and send them to the mp3 player, and create playlists. The earbuds, I dismissed without trying, and used my own headset for a couple of days. But, the earbuds were nice for listening to music in bed, and I realized they are better than my headphones!
Stylish design, DAB+ support, Good lossless format support
The iRiver S100 is a slim, stylish and well-made media player that's technically future-proofed thanks to its inclusion of DAB support. However, a very patchy interface and real-world DAB performance that's miles away from what you'd get with a home set costing half the price it's not the cutting-edge radio solution we've been hoping for. Not enough has improved since 2005.
GREAT for music - not so much for everything else
Finally, the battery life is AWESOME - longer than any other player I'm aware of. The unit has a proprietary connector which can be hard to insert. Do not force the plug into the unit - line the thing up and it slips in easily initially with a final push needed to firmly connect. It takes some force to disconnect so I'm a little concerned about the longevity of this connector but so far, no problems.
A bit expensive, Feature-poor in some respects, Low-res screen
The Cowon X9 is the latest portable MP3 and video player from the Korean audio brand. However, in some respects it feels like a step back when compared with older models. Its touchscreen is resistive, its display low-res and it doesn't have the storage to justify the bulky design. Cowon needs to get with the times, or it'll soon be game over.
Most formats didn't play too well
The Cowon X9 is available in three variants - 8GB, priced at Rs. 11,999, 16GB at Rs. 13,200 and 32GB priced at Rs. 15,500. Those prices simply do not justify the devices capabilities. With 7-inch tablets available for much less with features such as HDMI out plus full HD video palyback, the Cowon X9 with it's ridiculously high battery capacity and even it's onboard storage doesn't stand a chance.
For what it's worth
For what its worth, I like the unit, the battery last long enough for me to make my 18 hours in flights. This unit has but one down fall, You can not create a play list with it. You have to create the play list on your computer and then load it in. I find this very inconvenient. I like to play music I am in the mood for, not plan on what mood I will be in. If this unit had that I would have rated it higher.
Decent bundled earphones
Not quite cheap, but definitely cheerful, the NWZ-E463 combines a natty design with a good-looking interface and a wealth of music-related features. There are some significant bits missing, such as lossless format support, expandable memory and a standard USB connection, but this won't bother everyone. The key to this player is that, thanks to its thumb-friendly physical controls, pleasant interface and decent earphones, it's a device that's enjoyable to use.
Battery life, Easy to navigate menu system, Sound Quality
For a fairly low budget price tag, the NWZ-E463 model offers a snazzy design with a great range of music-related features. There are some minor niggles such as too small sized buttons and menu issues, but overall, a pleasing interface along with a solid pair of sound isolating earphones. All of these features make this music player an attractive little device all round.
Great MP3 Player Headset
I have been looking for a waterproof MP3player headset so I could use it on my personal water craft. And when I came across this unit, I had to try it out for the price of $30.
I had high hopes for this thing since the photos show it off very well, especially on the manufacturer's website, and the frequency response of 20-20kHz is pretty good in such a small package. But when the device arrived, I panicked a bit. The packaging is a plain white box with a couple of barcode stickers.
Amazing Player for the Price
The bottom line here is this is an amazingly good MP3 player. Is it perfect? No, obviously not. But there are a lot of players on the market with fewer options for a lot more money. I spent several days researching every player on the market and the Clip Zip has the best combination of options at the best price, hands down.
Impressive array of features
Overall, the Sansa Clip Zip is an appealing value alternative to the nano or shuffle. Yes, it's not as cool-looking, and yes, it lacks some of the sexier features on Apple's MP3 players (such as the VoiceOver feature that uses computer-generated speech to tell you what you're listening to), but it delivers a lot of meat-and-potatoes functionality for not too much money.
Good format support
Low cost, good format support and expandable memory team up to make the SanDisk Clip Zip MP3 player a solid choice if you're strapped for cash. It doesn't look or feel expensive, but its rear clip is sturdy enough to grip onto clothing reliably. Looking for a primary MP3 player? We'd recommend considering a slightly more expensive player with longer battery life. But as a second or sporty music source, it's a winner.
The Zip Clip's Settings function provides an assortment of controls and options, including display brightness, the way the navigation keypad works with audiobooks, and even a nifty feature that compensates for differences in volume levels on music tracks (so that you don't get blasted away by a track that was created at exceptionally high levels). Overall, the Sansa Clip Zip is an appealing value alternative to the Nano or Shuffle.
Great improvement on the first generation
I own the previous iteration of this device which is now available for $50. I was so happy with the previous generation that I bought one for my brother and his wife for Christmas. The 1stGen product is great. For anyone who works out and hates headphone cables, it provides hours of music with reasonably thought-out controls.
When I saw that Sony had come out with a new and improved version, I had to have it. So far I have been impressed.
Built-in rechargeable battery
Sony NWZ-W262 2GB Walkman MP3 Player comes with the USB connectivity and the playback supported files are MP3, WMA (Non-DRM), WMA (DRM), AAC-LC, linear PCM. Sony provides a range of accessories which comes along the purchase of this model and they are quick start guide, built-in rechargeable battery, USB cable accessories attachment.
