Christmas is coming and I want to get an mp3 player for one of my kids. I've searched this forum for ideas and browsed the net but I'm no nearer knowing what to get. Requirements are 10gb+, compact and good sound. The ipod generally has great reviews but it is more than I'd like to pay. The Creative Zen seems better value but I've read some reviews where the sound quality is criticised. Can anyone offer a personal recommendation? Thanks.
