Right I've been looking for a replacement MP3 player to come with me to the gym. I had a few requirements;
Needs to be small
Needs to be easy to use
Needs to have a screen to see what's going on (Unlike the standard creative stone)
Needs to have a clip to attach to t-shirt / shorts while I'm exercising.
Now I used to use the Creative stone 2gb plus and had to buy a seperate case which included a clip which worked well but I've found the Sandisk clip 2gb.
Why is it better? The user interface is certainly more intuitive in my opinion and much more responsive.
Also around the size of a matchbox you'll hardly notice it's on you!
All this for £26.73 delivered (Super save delivery though) from Amazon.
One thing I will say is you will likely need to buy a seperate pair of earphones as the bundled ones aren't much use. I suggest the Sennheiser cx300's from play.com at £15 which are really good.
