I like the Creative Zen models.
I have lost my Zen Nano, so I have ordered a Zen V Plus to replace it.
I prefer Creative Lab products because though they include software with their products, Windows Media Player software works perfectly well with it.
Other advantages the Zen models have over most of their competition:
most can create MP3 files directly from analog sources, such as cassettes and phonographs, and
most of them can erase files instantly, without waiting to hook up to a computer; this is especially handy in paring down used podcasts.
BTW, I have found that my Palm Tungten E PDA has been handy as a substitute while waiting for my new player.
Also, I have not found the FM feature worth the extra cost (one can get a cheap FM player for a couple of dollars at any dollar store), but, in the case of the Creative Lab Zen systems, it is part of any "plus" system with video capabilities.
