    Hello,
    I need a decent MP3 player with FM tuner, which is small enough to hang round my neck whilst commuting.

    I've been looking at the Zen micro, but don't want to commit unless I know that the FM quality is good.

    i'm looking to store at least 1000 songs.

    Does anybody have any other suggestions?

    Thank you

    I think you should not be concerned about its size :) I hang HD3 round mine (its bigger). Think u should be concerned about its weight. Since its also lighter than HD3 = go ahead! :thumbsup:

    The FM reception's OK at best. like many other players it's highly dependent on how you have the headphone cable stashed / rolled out. Personally I'd feel stupid with the Zen Micro around my neck (let alone the HD3).

    I have to agree with you. I would perhaps consider having an iPod shuffle or similar flash based player round my neck if was running or something, but I still would feel stupid!

    i don't feel stupid, i'd feel more stupid owning one of those ridiculous shuffles anyway, no screen, whats that all about.

    it's for my mum, anyway who gives, are you going to sit and whisper about her on the tube because she has a zen micro round her neck? exactly, i'm getting her one for her birthday, she did have one of those flash whatsits but it was cheap and awful.

    Touchy aren't you... or should that be your mum? :devil:


    You asked. I've had the player so I know how heavy it actually feels. I answered.

    quite right, i did spaz out a bit there, had a big attack of impending coursework though i'm afraid, anywho. yuss well i think i'll get it for her anyways, it's because she doesn't want wires trailing out of her pockets and tangled headphones.
    thanks x
