The first MP3 player on the list is the Apple iPod Classic, this player boasts one of the largest storage capacities at a whopping 120 GB, This basically means you can store up to 30,000 songs, 25,000 photos or watch up to 150 hours of video, impressive heh! The players comes with a 2.5 inch LCD color monitor and its sleek design is under a half an inch deep. Some of the great features of the iPod Classic are the built in games, the ability to upload the song lyrics so you can sing along and what i really think is great is the feature Apple call the 'Musical Genius' how this works is if you are listening to a song you really like and want to hear more tracks that are similar or go with it, the 'Musical Genius feature will find similar songs in your music library and with just a few clicks will build a play list based on the results it finds which you can play back. The iPod Classic is also able to connect directly to you TV so you are able to view movies and photos through your television set, and connect this player to your home theatre system chose the shuffle feature and enjoy your very own 'MP3 Jukebox'

Zune 120 GB Video MP3 Player

The Zune 120 GB Video MP3 player is a great alternative to the Apple iPod above. This player also has the great storage capacity of 120 GB but has a much larger color LCD screen at impressive 3.2 inches. The Zune has a built in FM radio and has a feature which allows you to tag a song you are listening to on the radio and then will give you the option to download the song for purchase when you later sync your Zune. Another great feature of the Zune is the ability to sync via your wireless network and also you can share music with friends from one Zune to another which is a feature not available with the Apple iPods (I must admit this is a great little feature!).

The Zune also has the capability of connecting to your Microsoft Xbox allowing you to listen to your Music through the system, it even allows you to purchase music from the Zune marketplace with your Microsoft Xbox Live Points, great idea!

Of course like the Apple iPod you can watch movies look at your stored photos and play games, and if you stumble into a Wi-Fi hot spot whilst on your travels you can access the the Zune marketplace and download music for free!

A great MP3 player which is packed full of features a suburb alternative to the Apple iPod.
