Ipod or Dell DJ or something else?

I'm looking into getting an MP3/audio player. Right now my main candidates are the Ipod 20GB($250), Ipod mini 4GB (now only $199), or the Dell DJ 5GB ($199).

I can get the Ipod at Target.com with 10% off with an online coupon.

Does anyone else have recommendations or knowledge of special deals?

ipods have really bad ass sound output. I have the 4GB, I cant say its the best thing I've bought lately because I got it for free for some training class at work, but if I had bought it, I would say that.

Not to call you a liar, but that is kinda hard to believe. I've been trying to keep an eye on ebay and I never see Ipods (except used) going for less than retail. Plus you've gotta pay shipping.

Get an Ipod. Dont support those commies at Dell, dont let them sucker you in with their low prices and fancy webpage/advertisments. Their shit might be cheap but it blows.

Um Dell,....commie?? I'm not sure they fit the definition of the word very well.

While I'm not sure about the quality of the Dell DJ, I've been using Dell systems for years. I've purchases tens of thousands of dollars of their equipment for business and very rarely have I been disappointed.

I can understand that. Everyone gets burned by at one time or another, even by a good company on occasion.

I have both, an Ipod 40GB, and the Dell one.
Personally, I like the ipod's ease of use, I don't really like the Dell software or looks. But personally I use the Ipod more.

Shrink wrapping equipment is on ebay too, so that you can repackage and sell as new.
