which mp3s are better than ipods for the price?

ive got a digital camera so i dont care about storing photos plus as far as i know the new generation ipods have a better battery life
Is the main issue the fact that they were so dominant in the market or are there any genuine complaints?

I have a 5gb Carbon Rio very small, smaller than mini ipod, bigger memory and cheaper.

The software is good as well if you wanted to use it.

T3 rated it better than ipod mini recently.

Sony 20gb mp3 is good, supposedly if you drop it it has a sensor that moves the needle away from the hard drive to help prevent damage!

cool in my books!

I think I-pod are as good as any

the I-river looks quite good also but I don't get why people would want a radio on an MP3 player

Had a look at the Sony 20gb one today which was 250 & that looked quite nice
