Compare MP3 Players for the Coolest Features and Sweetest Deals

How can you compare mp3 players to be sure you're getting the best features and price? You've checked some mp3 player ratings, and they're helpful. But iPod reviews and ratings don't answer all your questions. So how do you decide?

Here's a great little checklist for your player comparison. Use these criteria to compare players and you'll have no problem choosing the right one. Simply rate each mp3 player you're comparing by assigning a value of 1-10 to each of the six criteria. Total the points and voilá, your own custom mp3 player reviews. The players with the highest totals are your best mp3 players, and fit your budget.
