Please recommend an PMP/MP3 player (that's not an IPOD)

by ajfuller1 - 10/7/12 7:55 AM

Hello All,

Please can you assist in my long and so far highly unsuccessful search for a new PMP/MP3 player. Below is the specifications I'm after, but from what I've seen the most important is that the player has to be Windows 7 64bit compatible (I understand the Cowon Z2 is not?).

Location: United Kingdom

Capacity: 32GB+ (ideally with an expansion slot for a microSD card). Or to be honest it might need to be 64GB without an expansion slot.

Budget: Maximum cost would be £250.

Use: It'll be used for pretty much everything. Commuting, taking on holiday... essentially a media centre for on the move. It'll need to be able to connect to an FM transmitter device for use in the car as well.

Type/Design: MP3 player/PMP/Small tablet. I'd like to contain all my music and my video files. However I'd like to fit into my coat pocket for when I'm on the move so a 10" tablet would be to large.

Features: Features I'm not that fussed about really. My music is all mp3 and my video files tend to be mp4. A good audio sound is the number 1 feature.

Display: A high quality display would be good for the video files. I think the Samsung 5.8 size would be the largest size as anything bigger wouldn't be convenient to carry out and about.

UI/Controls: Touch screen interface.

Battery life: A decent battery life would be good. If it can be charged by mains as well as USB that would be a great bonus!

The main problem I'm coming across is a lack of players is their compatibility with Windows 7 64 bit machines. This is a must as that's what my laptop is.
Any information would be greatly appreciated folks!!

Thanks!

Alex
