What is better between iPods and mp3 players?

Which would you recommend to someone? Why?
Update: Which would you recommend to someone? Why?

I would like one with good sound a lot of memory and user friendly.
I don't care would it looks like as long as it's not too big and heavy.
Update 2: I already have an iPod but it's always dying on me and not working like it should, and now I'm thinking about getting a Zune.
Is Zune better than an iPod?

And I have a lot of music and I am always listening to it.
