    This is a topic I haven't seen yet but has be curious. How well does your player perform as you add more and more songs. It seems naturaly that it would begin to slow down the more songs you have. I think I can say that my Creative Zen Micro performs much more slowly to boot when it is fulll of songs than when it ony had a few. Also trying to find the song that I want takes much longer because of the user interface.

    So how well does your player perform in the following ways:

    Creative Zen Micro 1100 songs:
    1) Cold Boot (about 30 seconds)
    2) Warm Boot (almost instant, 1-2 seconds)
    3) Pressing Play (a few seconds)
    4) Pressing left arrow while playing to start a song over. (8 seconds)
    5) Menu navigation. (Mostly responsive but takes a long time
    6) Turning off (10 seconds)

    My iPod Video 5.5 G....80 gig performed the same now as the day I got it. 9909 songs later. The only thing it does that annoys me is that it locks up sometimes when I connect it via USB. I have to reset. Probably happens maybe 1 in every 4 syncs.

    I have almost 3000 songs on my zune and it will hold about 15000-every once in a while it will shut down but i turn it back on and its fine.

    yikes, how do you tolerate all that?

    iPod nano 8gb previous gen...no issues, near instant response times in all scenarios (about 4gb used so far)

    It's paid for that's how I tolerate it :)

    I do want to get a new one, which is why I was asking.

    I haven't sat down with a stopwatch to time anything, but I don't notice any lag when switching music or turning it on or off. It all seems instant.

    I have a Toshiba Gigabeat S60.

    Yeah, I think mine is pretty antiquated, things must have improved significantly since then.

    I want to say mine's about 2 years old, but I could be wrong. They don't make them anymore so if it dies I'm going to go with a Zune. My daughter has one and it seems pretty nice and easy to use.

    I'm looking to get one for my dad this Christmas but we'll see what happens. :)
