Mini IPod VS. Iriver H10

Ok as the title says, which is better.

all i need it for is a place to download the singles and bump em before the albums drop, or if i only like the singles and dont want to buy the cd, and a place to copy my favorite CDs, so i dont have to walk around on my next deployement with my big ass CD book, and stuff.
i want atleast 4GB, but more is good, i doubt i'll need more than 10GB tho.

I dont want to spend more than $200.
so i can wait till someone returns a nice ipod to the store or snipe one on ebay, or just go buy a brand new Iriver H10.

sorry mang.....im undecided. i like both. i have fam and friends who have one or the other.
both are good mp3's. its more brand loyalty if anything. the iriver has an fm tuner which is good and i what i like especially for riding. the ipod nano is alot smaller and it has 1gb less than the H10. both are easy to use and are easy to download music on to.
when you deploy again, either ship or shore, the ipod will be easier to pt with and thats a plus for me when i go on ship and run. H10 might be susceptible to skip since it has a harddrive and the nano does not.....anyone correct me if im wrong on that. never skipped on my sis when she goes jogging. i havent done too much research on either, jus word of mouth from my peeps. hope i kinda helped with my .02. gl buddy.

I have a mini, bought it in August. 3 times it wouldn't turn on despite having the batter show full power at the time I charged it. I had to recharge it to get it to go. It wasn't broken, just wouldn't turn on. The battery recharge times also seem very erratic and sometimes it just won't charge properly for me. This thing should be new enough to be past the original battery problems they had - I think it's just a low quality product, although it's easy enough to use. I also don't like that it won't play wma files and I'm forced to shift everything over to i-tunes into an mp3 file format to put them on the player. I would buy the I-River just to avoid another Apple product. The sound quality is good, but the original headphones suck and stick out (the white ones) like a sign saying "steal me." Hmm, everyone I know who raves about the I-Pod is a big Apple fan and hasn't used much else.

On the bright side, I jog with my I-Pod mini all the time and it's never skipped. The user interface is good - thanks to Creative. Once you get I-tunes going, it's very easy to put new music on the machine. The memory is more than enough. I have a freind who bought a big I-Pod with however much memory (mine's 4GB) and he asked me why I didn't buy a bigger one. I asked him how much of his he actually uses and sure enough, it was about half the capacity of mine. I think for most people there's no need for much more memory than this - though if you're a big music fan you might need more (can't see it for anyone).

i love my nano and i loved my mini. both are amazing. my husband inherited the mini after i got the nano. apple's customer service is AMAZING!! the mini's battery died out and they replaced it free of charge. i haven't had a problem yet with my nano and it's VERY easy to use.

I don't have any apple products but I think the nano is amazing and that is what I would get if I got another portable music player.

I have a brand new Mini still in the box - never opened. I bought one last June and mistakenly really bought two. Been to damn busy to return it.

Yours for $125.00 shipped to your door. It's silver.

Edit: Have never had a problem with the one I do use and I use it all the time.

Nano yes

Iriver yes

i have had really bad experience with mini
battery sucks and sometimes frezzes "have to reboot"
Nano so far great battery and no other problem "thats why they dont make the mini anymore"
Iriver allways great quality, plus fm radio i use it sometimes
I have used all 3
and i like 2 of them but prefer nano for the slim fit
Mini DONT GET IT
just my .02

Yeah, I'd avoid the mini. I like it and it suits me fine, but ugh, the fact that the customer service is so good about a given product usually says as much about the number of complaints received about that product as the company in my opinion. But if you can get a cheap one, I'd still go for it anyway since these things need to be replaced every couple of years anyway. I think the one for $125 sounds like a decent deal. I'd buy it for that price if I didn't have one, but not new.

+1 And the fact they have good support means they stand behind what they offer and want happy end users. Good support doesnt mean their product is poor... That is such a load!!!

My daughter got a Nano for Christmas and it is taking everything I have to stop myself from getting one for me! That thing is really cool!! Must.... save.... for bike.... accessories....
