...and I'm in love <3 At first I was a bit worried its tiny size (about the size of a matchbook) would make it hard to use but it's actually very easy to use. It has the option to sort songs using ID3 tags but personally I'm oldfashioned and like to sort them myself with folders The keys feel very nice but one thing that I found counterintuitive was the assignment of the Up button to Play/Pause (the middle button is instead used to display an equalizer graph and the next song on your playlist/folder) but I quickly got used to that. Its format support is above average, supporting FLAC and Ogg Vorbis along with the usual MP3 and WMA formats. One feature I haven't used is the MicroSD slot, which has the potential of upping its memory to 40gb (8 gb internal + 32gb MicroSD card) Because of the size of the unit there's obviously no photo or video support, but there's FM radio with the ability to save frequency presets.
If you're looking for a reasonably priced MP3 player I strongly recommend this one. ATM it costs £42.49 for the 8gb model on Amazon and £33.82 for the 4gb model.
- Ok, you must admit that was the most creative cussing this site have ever seen -
I have the Sansa Clip, love it. I've got HTC Desire as my phone but I prefer to keep the music separate, especially battery-wise. But it's a great little player. I bought the 4GB version and a cheap 16GB memory card and fit most of my favourite music on there.
While I've heard good things about the Creative Zen series in general, they've put out so many models it's hard to find info on a particular model. Most "reviews" seems to have just copied the product announcement and specs. I did manage to find this one though

Thanks for digging up a review. It wasn't exactly a glowing recommendation though - maybe I won't get one...
I really just want a barebones kind of player - 8GB+, long battery life, good sound quality (& custome EQ), decent user interface - and don't need any of the extra bells & whistles, and don't want to pay extra for a brand name.
I did have a Philips GoGear Raga which was pretty good but it didn't last long. Also had a nice Archos before that.
