iPOD Shuffle

Does anyone here have the Shuffle? I need an MP3 player and I don't want so spend $300. What have you heard about the shuffle? Or reccommend another player for under $150.

iPOD Shuffle

The shuffle is a nice little MP3 player, but I have some issues with it

1) Lack of an LCD
2) I wish it had a AAA battery. I would rather be able to buy a stack of rechargables and be able to use it for a long ass time. Although having a built in USB port to charge with is nice, I know how much I am around a computer and could charge like this

The thing I really like about the shuffle is the software. iTunes will autofill the player with a random playlist whenever it is plugged in. It will also allow you to keep your music at high quality on the computer and when transferring to the shuffle, convert into 128kbs AAC.

Yeah, the LCD thing kinda throws me off. But, if you put all good music in it who cares right?!?!

AAA batteries mean lotsa weight, which is no fun. The Shuffle weighs under 1 oz... can't beat that.

iPOD Shuffle

The iPod Shuffle is nothing special. For serious. The only unique feature it has is its ability to play AAC. So, if your music collection is all from iTunes, go for it.

Otherwise, I would point you in the direction of Creative. I've owned many of their Flash players, and have to say they have it down. They're fully featured and very solid.

Lol, and I don't think a AAA battery will weigh you down much.

The new Sony 1 gig ones are nice and cheap, the Creative Muvos too. iPod shuffle... no screen... "random" factor sucks, and apple... ugh.

I can't see what the point of a screen on a player with a couple hundred songs is. Especially when it means less battery life and increased weight.
