Howdy The time has come to replace my faithful old Sony netMD. After trawling the web for info I've narrowed it down to the Sony NW HD3 and the 20Gb iPod. There are some great points made for both on this site and many others and I'm sure I'll be happy with whichever one I decide to buy but I thought I'd ask you guys for your points of view. The differences in battery life, software and compatibility with mp3/aac/wma/atrac are well covered on this forum. I'd love to hear from anyone who has used both and can point out any notable differences in using these players. I'd hate to go for one and find out the other has a nice little feature I wish I' known about. The small differences are sometimes the ones which swing these decisions. I'd also like to hear what lesser known feature users of either player love on their chosen player. Thanks for your help guys.
