I'm looking at getting one, which is better?
Sticky this thread and lock it.
Search.. there are a few Dell DJ threads about them crapping out pretty early on...
ipod. Go with the original.
Creative Labs Nomad JUkebox >* both of those shitty players.
With the Nomad, you can EASILY replace the battery when it wears out in 9 months. It's 40 bucks on thier website. pop open the cover by pressing a button. old battery drops out, new battery drops in. You are done.
Ipod.. send it to apple and for 100 bucks they will replace the battery.
alright, i was leaning toward the iPod but i wasn't sure...is iTunes the only way to transfer songs to it?
DJ is cheaper and does the exact same thing, it might not be as pleasing or "cool." But you are not the idiot either for paying so much.
looking into the nomad now
i love my dj
with the Nomad you can get a program called Notmad exlporer, which will allow you to use the nomad exactly like a removable HD.
no..theres a shit load of programs out there...
and theres even one program that you run from the ipod itself that lets you transfer songs from your computer or any other computer at that without even installing a program
find em all here
as for the ipod battery there's plenty of sites you can order a 40-50 dollar battery and they give you the tools to do it yourself if you ever wanted to replace your out of warranty battery
I have one. The battery life is AWESOME. It will easily play for 12 hours on a single charge. And you can get a 30GB nomad for the same price as a 20GB iPod.
you void the warrenty by opening the Ipod yourself.
Fuck, didn't we have this subject yesterday and the day before that and the day before that.....
This is one of the daily ipod threads.
iPod > Dell DJ
Dell DJ > iPod
Nomad > Dell DJ
Dell DJ > Nomad
Nomad > iPOD
iPOD > Nomad
just listen to the fucking radio
1. unless you buy the 2 yr warranty the waranty is already over and you can do whatever you want with your ipod that's out of warranty....if it's still under warranty it's as simple as a phone call and they'll replace it for you for 0-50 bux depending on the situation.
2. most of the places that offer battery replacements online will warranty their service if you opt to send it in to have THEM do it for you
either way read my original post I SAID OUT OF WARRANTY IPOD
iPod > *
Ipod is shit, I am guessing the same people who say an Ipod is better are also voting for Bush.
@ spending more than $150 for a portable audio player.
errr. apple users are mostly hippies/dems.
