In your esteemed opinion, what is the best microdrive MP3 player with WMA compatibility?
| |The market is flooded with WMA-compatible players
, as well as WMA download and subscription services, which gives Microsoft's music format a real advantage over Apple's and Sony's in the long run. For microdrive players, I'd recommend the photo-friendly iRiver H10
, Creative's colorful Zen Micro
, and the simple Dell Pocket DJ
. My personal first choice is the Rio Carbon
, though I really like the Archos Gmini XS 100 of late. All players are compact and can play subscription-based downloads, and some, such as the iRiver and the Zen Micro, are packed with extra features.
