SanDisk Sansa Clip+ ( 4GB, black)

The SanDisk Sansa Clip+ is an excellent successor to the line, offering a fitness-friendly design with a built-in belt-clip, a simple interface, solid sound quality, and plenty of handy features--all for an ultralow price. It's an unbeatable value.

Apple iPod Shuffle
REVIEW

Apple iPod Shuffle ( third generation, 2GB, pink)

The third-generation iPod Shuffle is the next best thing to an invisible MP3 player, but the quirky controls and microscopic design make it a limited recommendation.

Ibiza Rhapsody
REVIEW

Ibiza Rhapsody ( 4GB, aqua)

Haier America's flash-based Ibiza Rhapsody is pricier and larger than the competition, but its straightforward interface, excellent wireless integration, speedy processor, and plethora of features should appeal to those looking for a player that does it all.

Archos 705 WiFi
REVIEW

Archos 705 WiFi ( 160GB)

Archos 705 WiFi is the biggest, baddest PVP on the market. What you get in screen size, however, you pay for in portability and picture quality.

Archos 105 ( white)

REVIEW

RCA Jet S2001 ( 1GB, yellow)

If you're looking for an inexpensive MP3 player for the gym, the RCA Jet--FM tuner, armband, stopwatch, and all--is a solid choice, but the interface will take some getting used to.
