    Dell DJ > iPod; it's your clone copy of the iPod; but way cheaper. You save well over $130 more.
    iPod = Overhyped, Overwhored, Trendy player.

    I have a DJ, and my Friend an iPod. We switched off today, and niether could find a reason why the iPod is more.

    My neighbor has an iRiver... and it's fucking awesome. It's got so many great features... it's the same price as the iPod, but it's accully worth it.

    I have an iRiver flash player since I have no need for a jukebox and I love it.

    Well, it's really the previous gen. DJ... the interface is quite a bit better done on the DJ. But if your ballin' on a budget... then it's pretty good.

    Or if you need 60 or 80 gigs :nuts:

    But it offers more features; more formats, more stuff (FM Tuner, mic), 2x the battery life... and who could forget that cool remote?
