Pros Integrated and does everything necessary
Cons Not as efficient for portable players as Rhapsody
Summary Since I cannot stand ANy Apple players including the inferior iPod line-up which only is compatible with AAC, a waste format and aged MP3 which is one reason I do not care for iTunes. Rhapsody, the #1 music service which uses the most universal and best digital compression format available, the .WMA format by Microsoft, works flawlessly with my Creative Zen Micro and future players by Creative. iTunes is HORRIBLE and you have to pay 99 cents per song. I cant get any song for 79 cents with Rhapsody and for only 15 bucks a month get unlimited downloads straight to my portable player. www.musicgiants.com uses the Windows Media Audio (.WMA) lossless format so the music is practically CD sound perfect but the 160 kbps on Rhapsody is awesome anyways!
Pros Good User Interface, Compatible With Many Audio Players, Excellent Sound Quality, Variety of Options and Plugins
Cons Not Compatible With iPod, Slightly Cluttered Interface
Summary If I could sync my iPod with Windows Media Player, I would. It has easier ways to play songs from a single artist, as well as a slightly easier to navigate interface than iTunes offers.
Pros fast, nice interface
Cons hard to use
