Ive given up on creative labs. I have gone through a Nomad Zen NX that had a problem with the headphone jack. A Zen Touch with a hard drive corruption, and lastly a Zen Touch with a firmware problem. Im sending the firmware one in, getting it fixed, giving it to my little brother, and then buying a new player. What do you guys suggest. I'd prefer something in the 20gb range. 200-350.

Ipod is the most known but you could get a dell jukebox which gives you more storage for a less price but you dont get the cool scroll wheel of the ipod

Yeah doesn't have the click wheel; but the Dell does have a very intuitive click wheel, which is more of a barrel, but serves the same purpose as the click wheel. Ipods are horribly overpriced, and I would reccomend Creative, but since you're leaving them I'd look at Dells. I have a 15GB Gen1 DJ and its been flawless. The only problem I've had is that it takes a while to load when you haven't used it in about 12 hours. But this can be easily fixed by just turning it on and off if you haven't used it in the time frame, and the Gen2 may have fixed this problem. I wish I had gotten the in-line remote though, because without it you can't use the DJ in the case.

Get either the regular 20 GB iPod, or you could splurge and get the new 30GB iPod photo. there is also a brand called iRiver, which is also quite good:<br><A HREF="http://reviews.cnet.com/iRiver_H320_20GB/4505-6490_7-31120667.html?tag=pdtl-list" TARGET="_blank">http://reviews.cnet.com/iRiver...-list</A>

iPods are the most reliable when it comes to daily use, and the only problems (minor ones) were related to the original first and second generation's batteries.

Go for either a high capacity I-pod (I have a 40 gig G4) or a dell. If you are going to buy the I-pod, buy it from Best buy. they have the most comprehensive and longest (4 years) service, maintenance and replacement plan for it (and it's cheaper than Apple's - even after you include apple's student discount).
