I have actually owned a 8GB e280 for three years now. It does its job very well, battery still holds charge. Only wish it supported HC memory card. It also froze and didn't save the recording one time I wanted to record a gig with it, so I don't know if this feature really works. :-k

Here's the problem with any MP3 player other than an iPod, lack of accessories. If I want a speaker that charges my iPod and doubles as my toilet paper dispenser you can find it (sarcasm here). My sister got a new radio for her car this Christmas and it has a USB port on the front. Plug in anything other than an iPod or FAT32 drive and it doesn't recognize it. When you plug in an iPod you can have full control over the iPod. You want to use anther MP3 player I guess that's what the headphone jack is for. I own 2 iPods (1st gen. Mini and a 4th Gen Classic) I also own two Sansa players. When I'm doing yard work or need music and don't care about damaging the player I always grab the Sansa. Hasn't let me down yet.

My 11yr old daughter has had an 8GB Fuse for a couple years now, she loves it. She swears up and down its an iPod, she gets mad at me when I correct her and say "no silly, its a MP3 player, not an iPod"

Thought about getting her an actual iPod, but the $20 Fuse (love black Friday sales) suits her just fine and if someone steels it from her at school I wont be as bent out of shape than if it was a $200 iPod.

and also the odds of it BEING stolen are much lower haha

Have a Sansa Clip+ 8GB, only problem with it is that the power button stopped working, so i have to plug it in to turn it on and pause the music to shut it off, thing is tiny and the battery lasts almost 15hrs depending on the playlist
