Zune HD. I have a Zune pass so I can get whatever music I need. Its apps are crap and there are only about 20 or so of them. But then again the device is super small and is crammed with 64gb of storage. I love it and you can find them at quite the discount if you look around for a bit.

I still use a 4th generation iPod. 7 years and the thing is still alive and kicking.

I have a couple of Sansa Clips, small and versatile.
Also an iPod Touch but I use that for many other things in addition to playing mp3s.

nano and a old sansa that is still up and kicking.

I would get a Zune if they didn't discontinue making them. I still use the old Sony Pysc. A little cd player that reads mp3s burnt onto cds. Burn about 250 songs on one disc, and you've got enough for any trip. That's old school mp3 playing for $30.

we've got 4 sansas (2 are 2gig, 2 are 4gig w/sd slots) that each have a different set of music on them. One is 80's rock (based on my "Don't Stop Believin'" Pandora station) combined with 70's classic rock. The second is 90's alt rock. The third is dance music (techno-ish, Gaga, etc.) and the last is a mix of everything we listen to. I have a tiny lil case that holds all 4 plus a few rechargeable USB batteries and 2 retractable USB cables. No matter where we are, we have TONS of music at our finger tips.

i'm also currently exploring Google Music Beta on my PC & Droid2. Seems awesome so far. and the free music you get with it is a definite bonus.

The mp3 player on my Android phone. That way I have it with me. Before that, I used an iPod touch I'd been given, but I prefer only carrying a phone, instead of a phone and a music player. And I can read books on it, too.

When I use a MP3 player, it is a refurb 4GB Sansa Fuze with Rockbox (v2).

An iRiver H20. My first Woot!, back in April 2006, refurbished and still holding up strong. I've also got some 1GB Zvue Spirits that I bought here a few years later, but I only opened one of three. I'm waiting for the other two to appreciate sharply in value, along with several other impulse Woots, and all of my Pokemon cards.

I don't always use an mp3 player, but when I do, it's better than yours!

I use a Zune HD with a Zune Pass

I have gone through many over the year, but the best that I have found is the Sansdisk Clip and now the Clip+ (Plus).

I use my phone, but the last mp3 player I bought was the original Zune...well, the Halo Edition one. Anyways, although I haven't used it in years, I definitely would recommend the Zune line to anyone looking for a solid mp3 player, definitely over the Sansas and iPods.

I have 3 different Sansas. I use 2 for audiobooks and one for music. All 3 have been great.

Apple iPod Nano 8GB, 5th Generation

vote-for1vote-against

I have an Ipod Classic 160G, a Zune 30, A Creative Zen Video 30G, A Creative Zen 8G, A Sansa Fuze and a Sansa E400 (or something, I forget the model)

I use the Sansa Fuze the most. It's rockboxed so it's by far the most versatile. The games are fun occasionally and the video is small but effective. But it does audio books and music better than all the other ones I own. The Zune is good for video, the Ipod is basically my music storage locker.

The interface and the simplicity of transferring media onto the Sansa, along with the expandability of using micro SD cards make them the most useful.

2ng gen iPod Touch 8gb and iPhone 3gs. Looking for something bigger because over half my touch is games. I use the phone to stream music from Slacker.

Mainly I use a transcend MP320 which I really like and secondarily I use an ipod touch.

The MP320(there is also a 330 now) is really great. Cheap, 8gb, small screen, good battery life and built in usb port for charging anywhere. I originally bought it because I was such a fan of the original ipod shuffle's design which they dropped for some stupid reason. The transcend is definitely a worthy successor. Been using it for a year and a half now and it still works great. For 45-50 bucks, it is hard to beat.

actually don't use one myself, but I've played with the one I bought my daughter when she was 5 for $20 at walmart. 4gb "Phillips go gear Vibe"
It's small, about the size of a zippo lighter, has a nice color screen, good battery life, and you can just drag & drop files to it. Also, it's pretty damn durable, she's had it almost 2 years and hasn't destroyed it yet!

hers is bright pink, lol. It has an FM radio, supports multiple formats, does video playback, has a 1.5" color screen, can show photos, etc. Not bad for $20

she would rather use it to watch cartoons when we go on long drives than the 7" headrest dvd players.

@davywavy: That is what I did, it is the most gb/dollar value you can get bar-none.

Iriver and psp 3000 both are good, iriver is a 40gig mp3 player less than half full.

64gb Zune HD. I'm sad they won't be making them any longer. :( Out of ALL of the mp3 players I've had, including the 120gb Ipod, the Zune HD has been my favorite of all time.

32 gb Creative Zen Vision M. I have a 64 gb Ipod Touch, but prefer the Creative player because I HATE ITUNES! I also have an 8 gb Sansa Clip+ for gym use.

ZuneHD 16GB. I'm thinking about getting another one and keep the 16 for all my audiobooks and podcasts and use another one for music/video. I love it (except it is basically for Windows only).

Edit: also I don't like iTunes. Zune software is OK, but at least less bloated than iTunes.

Another Zune HD user here (with a Zune pass). I really love HD radio & I'm a bit surprised that it hasn't taken over the world, or at least much of the U.S., by now.

I'm surprised to only see one ipod classic on here. I have a 160gb ipod classic. Storage capacity, form factor, and battery life blow away any other option I've researched, not to mention price. Years ago my first MP3 player was a Cowon iAudio X5L. I absolutely loved the interface and functionality and everything about it. After it died though I couldn't find anything comparable, so I gave in and joined the ipod herd. Not in love with the interface, but it's a small price to pay considering I need every one of the 160 gigs.
That being said, my girlfriend actually ends up taking the ipod most days and I just stream music and podcasts on my iphone in the car, or PC at work.

I still use a Creative 30GB Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra. Got it used in 05 and it's still kicking like a champ.
