They have a copy from me though, if there are few video restrictions (i.e you can empty your whole hard drive of clips and what-not on it and still have 50% storage left).

If not, just buy a large memory stick for your PSP. I'm sure a PSP bundle pack (I paid $315 CAN, taxes included on mine) plus a large memory stick somehow still would end up costing less than the newest kind of iPod.


Like I said earlier, you could get a 2gig memory stick for 122 american, shipped last week.

And another thing about poor quality, ever since the Nano came out Apple has been flooded with waranty returns.

Yeah. Plus you can get everything you need even cheaper online. 2 gig memory sticks are way cheaper from online retailers. Canada add's in a ridiculous hidden copyright tax, on top of the regular taxes.
I have a PSP and a Dell DJ 20GB. I only used the PSP to play games on.

I'm really surprised with all the iPod bashing.  I've had mine for about 2 years and have never had a problem with it.  I couldn't live without it now that I'm used to it.

IPod Video (60GB) plays music (15 000 songs), podcats (radio stations), photos (25 000), home movies (150 hours) , music video, audiobooks, movies, tv shows and many more features.  What else would it need to attract you guys? Wink
buy another brand that does pretty much the same thing for 1/4 the price

That doesn't make them any good. I co-incidently had a friend over last night with his and all he did was complain about the poor performance.

their quality is crap and the products do not live up to their warranty

For the price the video player is likely to be, get a PSP and a big memory card. Then you'll be able to play top notch games, listen to music and surf the net too.


And the compression rate is great on the PSP, you can get a whole season of a show on a 512 meg memory card with real good quality. And the price of the memory cards is coming down quite a bit. I saw a SanDisk 2 gig stick online for just over 100 american after shipping last week.

It depends what you are looking for.  Exemple, if you like to play games, between a gameboy advance or PSP, then get a PSP, but to listen to music, between a PSP or IPod, I would get a IPod.  I also feel the IPod is a great Ideal for transfering/carrying files.  The Sony's memory stick are so expansive.  But again, that is just my opinion and that's why we have different products that are being offered.

When I had to convert a DivX file to Quicktime for DVDAnswers anti-leeching system, the only thing I could find to do that was Quicktime Pro. Normally I would get whatever free software that is recommended on videohelp.com, but after a day of searching I gave up and bought the player - up until then I didn't realise how closed and controlled the Quicktime format was.

You don't need to buy Apple's software for IPod video.  Works for both Mac and PC
DivX is better quality than Quicktime (even though, it does come with HD) because of the compress, but you still can use whatever format you can stick to the ITunes.

.mov which is quicktime

I have a PSP, thanks but no thanks apple
I already have a Dell DJ 20GB so I'm not thinking to get it for awhile.

Although an upgrade would be nice especially for a video I-Pod.
I wouldn't give Apple the sweat of my willy.
