By Charles Hopkins Published 05/27/2007 | Music

Consumers looking to purchase a new MP3 player will be happy to know that they are afforded some diversity. In fact, a consumer does not only have iPod as an option anymore. There are several MP3 players on todays market that a consumer can choose from. Yet, how does a consumer know which of the MP3 players to buy? Below are some of the better MP3 players available on todays market.

If a consumer is looking to save as much money as possible when they purchase an MP3 player, there are a few inexpensive MP3 players to consider.

The MobiBLU B153 is a flash MP3 player that can be purchased for under 100.00. It is considered one of the best MP3 players because it has a considerable battery life. The Samsung Yepp YP-T7J is another flash MP3 considered among the best MP3 players. It can be purchased at a low cost: between 95.00 and 140.00 and it possesses excellent sound quality. Plus, the Samsung Yepp YP-T7J is not without its special features: it has a radio, recording abilities and 1 GB of storage space.

Other MP3 players are a bit more costly: MP3 players with special features tend to cost the consumer a bit more, specifically the hard disk MP3 players. Nevertheless, there are a number of incredibly good MP3 players that possess higher price tags, all which will prove satisfying to the consumer.

The Creative Zen Vision: M, made by Creative Technology, is a media/MP3 player that has a sleek design, a radio, and voice recording capabilities, produces excellent images and provides the user with great audio quality. The price for the Creative Zen Vision: M falls between 275.00 and 350.00 depending upon the distributor.

Another fine MP3 player and a personal favorite of many is the Epson P-2000, which can be purchased at a price of anywhere from 250.00 to 550.00. The Epson P-2000 allows the user to view pictures, video, listen to music and more. The Epson P-2000 is particularly revered for the excellent images it produces, but is somewhat lacking when it comes to audio quality.

As can be seen above, there are many MP3 players to choose from. What will determine the choice will be solely dependent on the need. Does the consumer want to simply be able to listen to MP3 files or is the consumer looking for a tool that is far more diverse, allowing the consumer to view video and/or photos? The needs of the consumer, will, in turn, determine the price range in which the MP3 player falls.

Ultimately, consumers should make every effort to read up on the various MP3 player reviews offered on the internet: it will help them determine what rating the MP3 players have in terms of their function, price range and features.
