TheBestsellerTrends analyzes reviews of MP3 players, identifying the top five music players based on consistent performance in professional evaluations and user reviews.
The Apple iPod touch blows other MP3 players out of the water and earned more than a dozen expert recommendations — including three Editors’ Choice awards — in its first few weeks on the market. The new… fourth-generation touch is thinner and sleeker than its predecessor, and it’s faster too, thanks to a new A4 processor.
Reviewers are pleased that the iPod touch (finally!) includes a camera. In fact, it has cameras front and back to enable video chat using Apple’s FaceTime feature. Sound quality hasn’t changed substantially, and experts say most users will be pleased as long as they upgrade to better headphones. Battery life has improved, lasting nearly 40 hours in one audio test (browsing the web or running apps will drain the battery faster). Reviewers cite few drawbacks, although some would like to see integrated GPS. The iPod touch is expensive if you just want an MP3 player, but reviewers say all the extra features make it worth the price. The touch is also available in 32 GB (*Est. $300) and 64 GB (*Est. $400) capacities.
