Default General Video Player?

Looking for a sub $75 MP3/Video player

I will mostly be using the device to watch movies on.

Just really looking for a decent device with a decent screen size ( ~3-4 inches ) Would prefer a really minimalist look over anything. Old and favorite player has been a Zune HD ( handed down ). Also looking to have expandable memory, could care less about internal if it has expandable


Any thoughts?


I was looking at a Iriver Spinn that I could possibly snag for $50-$55 so that's not too bad.

Also found a Nook Color ( tablet ) for $85 ) - a little pricier, but it is a tablet :P

Honestly, if your looking for video then I would say go for something with android on it. Its just got a better user-base for supporting video codecs. With all the the pmp's then something is generally left out, with an android then you can just get an app for that.

Well, I don't mind the idea but the challenge is finding something decent sub $100 ( I've got a LG Optimus V, but the screen is a bit too small for my liking, same for my Zune HD.. and it's also very slow )

I was very happy with my Zune HD but I don't really wanna go back. The fact it had software attached to it is a real killer, I want to for once be able to drag and drop

Maybe you could find a used Archos 43 for for that price.

But to be honest i do not think you are going to be able find anything decent for that low of a price

Get the nook color,...there's so much more it can do. Otherwise all the other devices are sure to disappoint. This way you get video, audio, books, games, and anything else you might feel like doing all in your hand.
