MP3 Players: Buying Guide

In this guide, we'll show you what to look out for when buying a new MP3 player. There are a huge number of personal media players available on the market today. This article will give you the knowledge to make an informed choice and hunt down a great deal on your new gadget!

Personal media players are much more advanced than models that were available even a few years ago. Here are some important factors to consider when you are buying a new MP3 player :

Screen Size

Most modern media players are now equipped with a high resolution screen. This allow you to play back videos and even browse the web from your device. The iPod touch has become a very popular multi-format device and even includes a camera for recording video and stills pictures.

Brand

Each brand is markedly different. For example, Sony Walkman MP3 players are different to iPod, Archos and Zune MP3 players. It is important to try out a variety of models before making your selection. The main difference is in the user interface and styling. Many brands now offer touch screen and wireless MP3 players which make using the device a very simple task, even for the elderly and technophobes!

Memory

Think about how much space you need. 512Mb MP3 players were once considered huge, but with ever increasing video quality, most users now need at least 8Gb to be able to play their multimedia.

Accessories

There are MP3 players tailored to almost any purpose. In car and waterproof MP3 players can be bought, but many technology experts agree that it is better to buy a good quality general player rather than a specialist unit.

Upgrades
You can always upgrade your player with car dash mounts, waterproof enclosures, better headphones or even speakers. MP3 players which offer too many bells and whistles often make compromises in sound quality and battery life.

Author's advice
Read some up to date reviews from a trusted source like "What Hi-Fi" magazine for the latest in professional opinion.

When buying an MP3 player you also need to consider the software that you need to use. If you are a fan of iTunes, then you will need an Apple device. If you prefer a drag and drop interface straight from Windows Explorer, then you might be better off with a generic unit like JVC MP3 players. Prioritise user interface and sound quality above all else.
