    You see this steve? Brand new too






    6.…043 (Same as link # 5 but about £6 cheaper I think, but it is out of stock)

    7.…049 (Possibly the same as link #2. If it is, its a good £20 cheaper)


    Here you go steve. All brand new, all under £60 brand new. If I can remember some are under £50, but imo £10 more and you get a brand new product, and warranty. (I assume)

    I can also tell you that Ive had good experiences with the two websites Ive used.

    The information in brackets, I did just a quick scan, as its 3.10am so apologies if any of this is incorrect, also I havn't considered delivery charges which shouldn't be much.

    Since you've helped me a lot, I put in some effort for you! Also I recommend colour if you wish to view photos!

    Hope this helps. Night

    WOW, Deal4Me you have been busy. I really appreciate the time you have put into that post.

    I'm going to discount all of them from Aria because I bought my Daughter one from them and it was faulty. I contacted Aria to return it and they agreed. That was three weeks ago and they are 'still looking at it'. Hence the reason for another one.

    I'll let you know which one I decide on.
    Have some much deserved rep
    Thanks again.

    ] say you've considered this one dino.

    The posts about the middle button getting damaged put me off.

    I would have gone for a 'Second Hand' one, hence the post here but nobody's selling one so I'll ask a mod to move this to the Deal Request Forum.

    As requested. Thanks for letting us know

    Hey no problem dino dude, what are your concerns there about delivery?

    First Class only covers an item up to £32.00. Is this company going to 'cover' the rest if it gets lost?

    They do have some great price and so far I can't beat them.

    You had no problems with them?

    They 'check' out fine, so I'll be having a good look at the products :-D

    No problems whatsoever! But understand you have your doubts, I'm not a risky person!

    They are all bargains imo! Go nuts mate

    Neat dino

    Can I bung in my 2p as an mp3 player connoisseur...

    First, as I posted elsewhere [url][/url] is good for discussion and answers on anything creative. When the zen micros had the headphone issue that place was swarmed; I've just had a look and still no mention of any broken joystick stories, that really sounds like bollards to me. Go to tesco and have a feel of a joystick, it feels a bit like a SE k750 k800 w800 & they don't come flying off when you look at them. Even if you had a mishap, Creative 12 month guarantee would see it replaced.

    I bought one of these cheap Far East jobs a couple of weeks back; came within a week (8GB £30 plus £10 postage) but I won't recommend the seller as he has had 8 negatives this month (I guess I was one of the 130 positives/lucky ones).

    Quick heads-up on my findings:

    1) Headphone socket not standard (smaller) adaptor supplied, but mine won't play through independent speakers.

    2) Firmware not the best, not very intuitive. e.g. If you get it on random, then it forgets when switched off so it's at least a dozen key presses to get it back there. No manual, so takes a bit of nouse, trial and error to find all the functions.

    3) Are you going to use the photo viewer and all the extras? The "Free memory" on mine is hard to interpret but I imagine that all these features would use a lot of your 1GB.

    The GUI on mine is similar in appearance to this picture, altho it's a nano shape (like the one that cul8r clown was trying to sell) so I hope that you don't have similar issues.
