I'd like to get some opinions before I start buying music tracks.  I've only used MusicMatch a couple times for music downloads, but I was wondering if it matters between the sites (Napster, iTunes, etc.).   Can I use iTunes if I don't use an iPod, but another brand of mp3 player?  Which one is easiest to use or does it matter?

itunes supports only their proprietary format.  itunes and an ipod are the only devices that will allow you to play their tracks.

napster tracks can be played in any device that supports WMA with DRM.  

i used napster for a couple months and found their library somtimes lacking, but for the most part they had the latest and greatest stuffs.  they also offer discount packages.  ie, get 40 tracks for 35 bucks.

Actually, you can use iTunes and convert them to MP3s...you just have an extra step to take.  You create a CD with the tracks on them and then pull those tracks off as MP3s.

I love iTunes, but that's because I have an iPod.  If I had something else, I'd definitely go with Napster.

I believe you can save a step, and burn an MP3 CD.  This should convert the protected AACs to MP3 files.  I seem to remember people installing a virtual burning device on their machine so they don't even need media to pull this off.  It just would show up on another (virtual) drive.

Wal-mart.com : 0.88 a track or 9.44 a CD for .wma files that can be burned 10 times and stored on 3 computers.  They have a pretty decent selection, as well.
