    Hey guys, I am looking around for a decent MP3 player but i'm having a hard time coming to a conclusion over which to buy.

    I'm going travelling at the end of the year, so i want to buy an Mp3 player which i can also transfer my photos onto while im OS. So far these players look the most suitable ->

    IRiver H10 20gb http://www.iriveramerica.com/prod/hd/h10_20gb_gray.aspx

    Sony Vaio Pocket http://www.vaio.sony.co.jp/Products/VGF-AP1/

    Toshiba Gigabeat http://reviews.designtechnica.com/review2817_main14093.html
    (-) Bad battery life

    What do you guys think about these? I probably like the Sony the best so far based on the battery life and extra HDD space (not that i think ill need it all), although I think its fairly bulky.. plus i think its just cool :D

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks for all your help~!

    None of those units have officially been released in Aus yet. And none on the list allow you to transfer direct from your camera to the unit.

    How about the iRiver H320/H340 or my personal favorite the iAudio X5 or X5L
    They are both awesome units and allow direct transfer from your camera via USBOT ports.

    hey thanks alot for the reply.

    I think im going to go with the IAudio X5L, it seems to do everything I want and is fairly compact. I might wait another month or so to buy it (i have decided i dont really need it until i leave and currently im using my PDA for music. so theres no real need) and hopefully the price will drop to!

    Thanks again for the reply.

    Yeah good idea.
    Give me a buzz when your ready I see what i can do for you.

    Plus you can take advantage of the TRS scheme so you can claim back the GST you paid

    If it supports USB mass storage then its most likely compatiable

    I hope the X5 has a localised firmware so that colour is spelt correctly.
