iPhone, Ipod, PSP and T-Mobile Dash. It helps to work for a tech company! (Neuros in my case)

Sorry, didn't catch your question. I'm really loving it. As this is my first mp3 player, I can't really compare. The main problem is kind of ironic. All accessories are made for Apples and not others. The opposite of computer games/accessories. I am having a hard time getting a good way of using it for working out. The silicon wrap/velcro band doesn't work too well. I use it a lot in my car. I picked up a Sony car stereo with an aux in and plug the Clix right in. Works very nicely and has great sound.

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

Archos 605 and the 705. They can do everything for me so don't need 5 different devices.

Palm TX is the shizzle plays everything, i still prefer it to Iphone. I can use my plain no nonsense reg phone if I need. and link it. It plays great videos updating codecs is a breeze, great screen brightness, and palm software is easy to get......

Meizu M6SL, hands down the best sounding portable player i've ever had. Awesome battery life too.

I'm also looking forward to their mobile phone/PDA, the M8, it has the fastest ARM CPU on the market (667MHz Samsung), not found in any current device. Unfortunately they have faced many delays due to the lack of experience, but a video of a fully working pre-production sample is out. It's running a custom version of Windows CE. I sure hope they're gonna get it right, it'll be the "get rich or die" product for such a small company, and the quality of Meizu players is far superior than that of generic clones, it'd be a pity to see them go.

If all else fails i'm gonna get me one of Archos' new wifi-enabled devices.

I just bought the latest 2g ipod shuffle. I currently have 520 songs loaded and still have room for more, all in such a tiny player smaller than a match book its amazing. Its perfect for gym biking flying etc I love this thing and take it everywhere. Ill get an rca adapter so I can plug it into home stereos also.

I use a PSP with a ton of 2GB MS sticks.. Use it to catch up on my TV viewing (off the DVR) and occasionally listen to music. Only own one game for it. It has a great screen and battery life.

We've got a protable DVD player (Panasonic), though I confess we don't use it a lot. I'll have to charge it up and use it more often...

I've got an older SanDisk Sansa MP3 player as well...just for music, not video capable. It's a handy little thing though. Hubby also has a cheaper MP3 player (forget the mfg. of it) that he uses.

I'm hoping to get either a Zune 8 or an Archos 405 sometime soon...I'm waiting, for now, to see if the prices get better before Christmas. If not though I may just go for it, and get one or the other, anyway. (I want something that's good for watching TV shows more than music, although I'll use it for that as well.)

I've also got an eye out for a portable digital capable TV (5-7 inch screen if possible) to replace the handheld TVs I have now which will be pretty much pricey paperweights after Feb. '09....

We love our gadgets in this house.

Archos 5 250GB, iPod Classic 160GB, iPod Video 80GB (Rockbox installed).

See my recent review for the A5.

Using right now with Sony MDR-EX75 earphones. Very, very good sound for the price and extremely comfortable -- my new somewhat-budget reference earphones.

I tried hooking up my shuffle to my stereo, worked fine. But the volume was so low its not even worth it unless your really stuck for music. On an 80X2 integrated it took over 3/4 volume to get to only a decent listening level lol

ive got an ipod 5.5g 80gb... honestly the only reason i use an ipod is because it interfaces with my car stereo system.
i also use an LG dare occasionally.
former units:
ipod 5g 30gb
iriver h10
ipod 4g
rca lyra (forget the model, got it for like 120 when i worked @ sears... cant beat that for a huge screen and good format support)
some sony 1gb player (first models to use oled screens, dont remember hte number)
a couple of 256mb-1gb rca lyras (got em cheap, gave them away as gifts)
and my first mp3 player of all time (going back to about 02 or so i think)
an archos jukebox 20gb unit... i remember when i got it, it was freakin awesome. i wish i still had it.

i currently use a pair of SHURE E2Cs (which i got for 5 bucks when i worked at tweeter... worth every penny. i ordered the foams for it and they cost more than the headphones lol)

I own an original white 30Gb Zune and it's a pretty fantastic dap. I love the fact that MS is providing firmware updates for all Zune owners, it makes me feel like I'm not being given the shaft for being an early adopter. I know it would be easier for them to just wash their hands of the first gen units but I like that they allow all users to experience the latest features. It might not always be that way but for now it's appreciated.

Yep. agreed. And considering it's MS I'm shocked they are going the right thing.

I've had a 30gb Zune since they 1st came out. I am pleasantly surprised that since I got it now I can play games on it, it now has channels, marketplace, etc. The firmware updates have been a nice surprise.
