  • Sony NW-A1000 (6GB)

    3. Sony NW-A1000 (6GB)

    The good: Sleek design; improved Connect software; removable battery.

    The bad: Middling battery life; poor display under sunlight.

    The bottom line: The Sony NW-A1000 is certainly a music player that the fashion crowd would love to hold, though its monochrome screen and less-than-impressive features may not prove attractive to the geeks.

    4. Samsung YP-T8Z (1GB)

    Price range: $154-200

    The good: Nice set of features; interesting form factor; above-average battery life.

    The bad: Messy button layout; need for video conversion to .svi extension.

    The bottom line: The Samsung YP-T8Z is well featured and offers good sound, plus it goes out to prove that phones and PDAs aren't the only devices that offer multimedia entertainment in a small package.

    5. Apple iPod Nano (4GB)

    Price range: $189-249

    The good: Gorgeously slim; easy to use; comes with iTunes.

    The bad: Scratches easily; no FM radio.

    The bottom line: This slim offering from Apple may be limited in terms of features; however, for looks alone, the iPod Nano currently has few equals.
