Buyers' guide: top five MP3 players

Gadgets to give and receive this Christmas

An MP3 player is one of the most popular Christmas gifts for young and old alike, and is sure to brighten even the most sullen of faces on Christmas morning. But with so much choice available on the market, which do you choose for your special someone?

Apple's iPod dominates the market, but there are a number of other digital audio players to choose from that offer similar functions; in some cases, these cost a fraction of the price.
