Summary: I bought this used player off of ebay for a price under $20.00 and it is absolutely perfect for what I wanted. I needed a small, relatively simple player that would hold about 500 songs and do a random play of all for background music during water aerobics classes. What I liked best was that it synced right up with Windows Media Player for downloading.
Summary: I bought this mp3 player specifically for listening to audio books that I download either from netlibrary or from the library using overdrive. It was listed on cnet.com as one of the few that has bookmarks and was in my price range. So far the bookmarks have worked well for me in things I have downloaded from netlibrary. Have not tried them with overdrive so far.
Just as good as ......( insert popular fruit logo )

Summary: Ok since I spoil my kid and bought him the Ipod - I was looking for something cheaper but just as good - FOUND IT !! This thing is great - just pop in the software cd , follow the directions . Then connect your little player to your computer and start loading it up . This whole process took less than 30 minutes . I had about 60 - 70 songs on my computer I synced .
Summary: Creative ZEN V Plus is a compact device. As such, it's not really meant for viewing, more for audio playback & quick checking of videos. its about matchbook sized, which means the screen isn't that big (about an inch diagonal or so).
Summary: I like it due to its simplicity and easy to understand/upload. Excellent controls on unit. I bought this after reading good reviews for this product elsewhere and heavy bidding on these things on ebay. NOT the best battery life but thats the only very minor disappointment.
Outstanding portable recorder... with one major flaw.

Summary: If you have old tapes and records you would like to be able to archive, put into your computer or other MP3 player, and/or burn CD copies of, this is the the portable media player/ recorder for you...but it has one MAJOR flaw* A line in jack (odd 2.5mm, but adaptable) is a very rare thing on a portable media player/ recorder, and this has one..
Summary: I've had this thing for a few days, and so far I rather like it. It isn't perfect, of course. My main issue is that it won't automatically sort by only artist (you have to then go through album), or by folder. But using playlists pretty much fixes that. Also, I haven't been able to make any videos convert to its format yet, they're always stopped by some sort of error. Otherwise this is a great little music player.
