It all really boils down to a matter of opinion. I first saw the ipod about a year and a half ago when it was released for imac. I thne swore i would get an mp3 player similar to it when one was released. I needed a lot of storage space, none of this 128MB rubbish we see on some models and a nice, sleek design. I was granted my wish when the ipod was released for windows. Although, yes, £320 is a hefty wallet-buster, i feel it is worth it. Very portable, modern, simple and very useful features. Frankly, i don't care about WMA format (to put it lightly :P), i do not like it, it's just microsoft's little finger in the music file scene. I do not need a USB connector as i have firewire, although a dictaphone would be useful, i'll admit. Having recieved my ipod back in september, it has served me well. The screen is prone to scratching, but anyone who cares about their possessions would make sure it isn't mishandled, so mine hasn't recived any scratches in the time i have had it. Although i have found problems with the remote and the clip breaking off with i was mildly disapointed with, to be fair.
Given the choice, i would still choose an ipod over a zen, though as i mentioned at the start of this topic, it is purely a matter of opinion.
