Been doing my research on the web for a new MP3 player.
The Sansa View comes out very highly rated by those in the know.http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2008/01/sandisk-sansa-view-review.php
This is the 8GB version, but the good thing is that the player has an expansion slot for an SD card and technology and prices the way they are you can add another 4, 8, 16 or soon 32GB to it.
The Sansa Fuze 8gb which is the smaller version is currently £74.99 at Play.com so this seems like a pretty good deal.
First timer - please be gentle
