I'm going to buy a portable MP3 Player. I'm taking in consideration only players with flash memory (no CD, minicd, dataplay or HD) because i'm interested in small players and if possible, no moving parts. After some visits on popular mp3-players web sites, I've done some conclusion and I'm taking in consideration two mp3 players: NEX IIe and iRiver iFP . Both of them seems to be very good, but I prefer iRiver iFP for the dimesions, functionality and beacuse it's newer. The big problem (for me) is that it uses ony internal flash memory. The NEX II instead, uses compact flash memory: I can buy 512CF card or 1Gb IBM Microdrive and use it also in my digital camera! I've done this scheme that stores the main features compared for each player: I need your help to complete it and to let me decide which one is better and reliable for me. If it's needed, please add in the list other players to compare, but only, if it has the same features mentioned above. NEX IIe: ----------- Dimensions : 90x60x20. Weight : 65g. - It includes the battery? LCD : 112x64 matrix with back light. File Type : Plays bitrates up to 320kbps and VBR. MP3 TAG : ID3 V1 Tag. - Is ID3 V2 compatible? Memory : Infinite memory & storage expansion configuration with Type I & II Compact Flash memory cards, IBM's MicroDriveTM (currently up to 1 gigabyte). Connection : USB. - What USB version? Battery : 2xAA. Firmware : Infinite expansion capability via NEX II's ability to accept different modular plug-ins. - How much it will be able to support in the future other audio formats like MPC, OGG, FLAC...? Audio quality : what about the quality? Someone has tested it? Notes : "Smart Power" NEX IIe's improved circuit design allows for drawing power from USB. This not only allows you to save battery life during song transfers but it can also power itself via AC power adapter. iRiver iFP: ----------- Dimensions : 31x28.5x82. Weight : Approx. 32g (Excl. battery). LCD : ? with back light. File Type : Plays bitrates up to 320kbps and VBR. MP3 TAG : ID3 V1 Tag, ID3 V2 2.0, ID3 V2 3.0, ID3 V2 4.0.
