If you research enough, you will know that the RIO Karma is the undisputed best when it comes to sound quality, however it is not available in SG. The Iriver H10 comes in a close second in sound quality. For photo display,video playback and ease of use, the Ipod wins, however the sound pales in comparison to the competition. Creative attempts to do everything but does nothing exceptionally well, just a jack of all trades, so decide which functions are most important to you and choose accordingly.
i gotta say this before you buy a creative mp3 player. i am not trying to say that their products aint good anything but their afterservice really sucks to the core.
i went from eunos to jurong east and walk quite a distance to their main creative building and wanted to take my friend's mp3 player. the muvo*square* mp3 player that was like 2yrs ago. and they told me me straight without even asking me anything...
"sorry we don't do any repairs, would you consider to buy a simliar model?"
then what's the service centre there for?
that guy replied ...
"we can do exchange 1 for 1 if your warrenty is still valid and there's still the available model"
and i was there cursing in silent...
and they said just repairing a spoilt audio jack would cost me 170++. just a lil' short of a brand new one. that's totally rubbish!
but the good thing they exchange one for one. that's just my point of view
