Default ABI's Top MP3 Player Picks of 2009

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"It's that time of year when we lay out our top picks for the year. 2009 was the year of the touch player- consumers demanded them and manufactures responded. If you notice that this year's list resembles last years and that's because many of the manufacturer's this year made some awesome incremental improvements in their current line of players."</em></p><p><em><img alt="Sony Walkman X-1000" height="255" src="" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="480" /></em></p><p>Grahm Skee over at AnythingButiPod has come up with a top 5 list of the MP3 Players from this year. My personal favorite, the Zune HD, came in 4th place because of its locked in ecosystem. Leading the pack was the Sansa Clip+ with its cheap price and newly added MicroSD card slot. Are there any players that you think should have been in there? What's your top 5 list of MP3 Players? Let us know in the comments.</p>

Okay, so admittedly, I still have my trusty old 30gb iPod since I see no reason to replace it because it still works. But I do have the Sansa Clip even though I think it's limited. I prefer to have video on the player too. But the clip is perfect for those dreaded workouts. For something small in size and video, I just purchased the Sansa Fuze. But beware, cases are limited in style and the back clips are awful.

Default Nice list!

IMHO, the Clip is a better sounding MP3 player than my Zunes, (got two for my grandkids) plus it has EQ...sorely missing from the Zune and it records. It is about the sound isn't it?

I checked out the Sony...very nice.

Cowans have always had great sound and codecs. My wife's Cowan d2 is no exception.

I would swap positions for the Samsung with the Sony. Otherwise I agree with his choices. Pity, none of these has any real capacity. So...I'll be using my Zune 120 until something bigger and better comes along.

I'd like either a Zune 8 or, since I'm on a college student budget, a Sansa Clip+. It looks like a very straightforward, clean, and simple player.
