Do you guys like WMP on your pocket pc too the way you like it on your desktop?

I love it very much

One word, YES.

Though, microsoft has left away many of the features of its desktop brother, but, still, I've adapted myself to WMP10 mobile.

Things, I dont like about it is the way it handles playlists.
Though, there is a work around for it. I use Playlist Editor (http://www.cs.pitt.edu/~jmisurda/ppc/#Playlist) to create and manage playlists on the pocket pc.

I like it OK... I wish it had an equalizer in it though. I have used other MPs like WinamPAQ and the PocketTV one since it did MP3s too, but it came down to not wanting to sacrifice precious RAM to a program that the OS has on board.
I've heard WMP10 is cool on the PPC, but since I only have WM2003 and can't upgrade I've only used it on a friend's. I didn't like the way it (on WM2003SE) dealt with playlists or files as much as v9 does. v9 is much simpler to use. could just be practise though...

I fully agree. When it comes to playlists, WMP10 mobile is a turn-off(unless you the utility which I mentioned in prev post). Surprisingly, WMP9 mobile handles playlists much more better.

Personally I like the way WMP10 on the PPC handles playlists better. It expects you to handle them on the desktop and syncs them. I never spent much time on MP9 doing it on the PPC anyway. Too cumbersome. Much easier on the desktop. These things aren't 20-60G Ipods anyway. I don't have my entire music collection on it, just my favorites. Not that many ways to filter those. I just listen to them all most of the time, or at least as many as i can get through when I have a chance.

WMP10 does handle Album art a bit better I cannot get TCPMP to display my Art. I think TCPMP works great for video but needs a better intrface for music.

Does the 51V have anykind of EQ? Or can you add a third Part Program?

:-) I never look at album pictures when I listen to music. I juat want to hear it. So no issue there for me. Like you say TCPMP is loads better for video.

The same was with me. Now that I've 1GB card, I need to know from which artist I'm hearing the music. I've my music in wma format and thus, it holds lots of music. This is where Album art comes into play.

No, Pocket MP10 doesn't have an EQ. Don't know of any media Player add-ins of any sort. If you want an EQ, you just need to get a whole different player. Or try different headphones till you get the sound you want ;)

...but the x51v does:

granted it's not much, but better than nothing.

That's cool. Not a MP add-in, but a whole audio system equalizer. Note it says X50. Anyone tried it on a 51? I don't think they did much to the hardware, but they did some stuff.
