    I am in desperate need of help, I have been looking at the larger memory MP3 players for ages now and cannot decide which would be best, I have my eye on the Sony NW-HD3, iRiver H120, Philips HDD120 or maybe even the Samsung YH120. I have heard the Sony has a hiss, and that the iRiver is slow to start songs or even switch on, and have only just started looking at the philips and samsung in order to broaden my options. I am not really interested in the ipod due to battery duration. Anyones help would be gratefully recieved!! HELP!!

    Go for the SONY NW-HD3 you'll love it! good sound quality, the volume is not very loud but i understand it can be tweaked which i haven't figured out yet. I've got a black one and i'm happy with it. Go get it .

    Hi

    It may be a case of the longer you spend looking and researching the harder it will become to chose a player.

    I spent an evening searching the web (and consuming beer) and eventually decided upon the Zen Extra 60GB model. I paid £200 and got it within 36hrs of placing the order.

    During palcing the order and receiving the unit I read posts on support forums for it & was quite concerned as a lot of people seemed to have problems getting it to work, this was a bit worrying (i am a pc newbie)!!However - 3 days later I have ripped a number of cds to it & have not had a single problem (phew).

    I think what is probably as important as the model you chose is

    - ripping software
    - compression
    - headphones

    creative.com have a good selection of players, as far as headphones & ripping software goes I am on the search (although to be honest the standard software with my unit seems fine).

    Just jump in is my opinion, lifes too short!!

    Best of luck
