I have a cheapo .mp3 player that only holds about 40 songs or so, and I really want to upgrade to one of the large capacity players that hold many hundred or even thousands of tunes.
I mostly use my .mp3 player at the gym, on the treadmill or eliptical, or while I'm lifting or stretching. I have thousands of .mp3s saved on data discs and on the hard drive of one of my PCs.
My question: What are the best options out there? Apple is pushing that iPod Nano a lot right now. But I have no love nor allegiance to the Apple company... actually, I don't really like them all that much.
I also don't really need anything that shows pictures or has a color display (as the Nano does).
I'm mostly looking for a high capacity player that is easy to use, and (this is important) one that accepts .mp3's that have been downloaded online over the years (napster stuff , etc.)
Thanks in advance, guys.
