I've had a 4gig creative Zen Microphoto for a few months now, and a couple of things are starting to irritate me. 1. Screen, now has a stupid green line going down it, but thats not a show stopper. 2. Sound quality. no Bass. As a result, I'll mainly use it for Audiobooks. 3. And this is the show stopper. Battery life. It sucks. I'm getting less than 6 hours total playback time, which is fairly pathetic. Sure, i can get one of the 8gig higher capacity batteries, but it won't add much on. So I'm wondering about which players out there with a decent amount of storage actually have a reasonable battery life. I was considering the iPod Nano, but a friend has one, and she reckons that neither hers or her other halfs nanos actually last more than 4 hours on a charge. So, are the latest Nanos much better in real world usage? The Sony NWA1200 is claimed at having 20 hours battery life, and I've had good experiences with my NetMD player (50 hours playback). Suggestions? I figure I don't need a huge amount of storage, maybe 8gig minimum, but decent battery life is useful.
