Like many of the comments here, I too, am quite happy with my Creative, Zen X-Fi. As much as I would love a good subscription based music center, until DRM gets better (or dies), I think ill stick with the CD's.

Rhapsody is probably the best subscription service... Good quality MP3's, very large selection of music...

I wish my iPod would let me use Rhapsody...

The iPod touch is, in my opinion the best video player advailable... (It was hard to purchase it even though I greatly dislike Apple and iTunes). If I wanted a large capacity music player or a flash music player, I'd get a different brand for sure.

I'm really happy with my Zune. It does the jobs that I bought it for and some other neat tricks. I really enjoy the Zune software, particularly the awesome visualisations. :D

Yeas, because SOOO many people will buy 30,000 (or less with new pricing) songs off iTunes. My parents, sister and I are all audiophiles with different songs on our iPods, and we only have 3767 songs TOTAL, most of that from CDs.

I think you're point would be then, that no one needs an ipod that big for just music.

I have an 80gig ipod with only music on it. Of course the only time I ever purchase music is when I can't find a torrent of it.

Not just the service the Zune player is so much better.

We have both a Ipod and a Zune.  I got the Ipod for myself and my 10yr old son disappeared with it, so I decided to grab a Zune a few months later.  Now the IPod and the computer with Itunes sits unused and the Zune along with the newest laptop in the house are used daily.  From videos to what ever the Zune is just perferred not only by myself but even a soon to be 5th grader.  (Maybe Foxworthy can do there adds next)

I tell you Zune is the better more polished product, I guess if you spend all your money from overpriced PC sells you can market a wrench down peoples throats and they will buy it.

Rhapsody has a better song selection then iTunes or Zune and has had a $15 a month subscription for some years. Rhapsody FTW!

Additionally, you get 10 credits with Zune Pass each month that you can use to buy whatever music you like. If you think about it like this, you are paying $1 per song to keep and then $5 for unlimited rentals.

But some of hte space is taken up by the iPod's software/firmware. Also, a lot of people buy CD's and put the ones they already own onto the iPod. Still, it's a good point for some one who wants to buy all of their songs through iTunes.

didnt itunes and amazon raise their song prices 25 cents? now it's like 1.25 for a song or something? that just made another difference there.
