allow me to help:

Creative Zen Vision: M

it's what I have, and I would call it amazing. It's a great player. Has everything you want, and it's, of course, creative.

for a review (that's much better than cNet's) check out:

for any questions or problems you might encounter, check out:

i'm rockinamigo14 at both those sites.

buy one, and you won't regret it.

Zen Vision M

The Vision:M (30 GB)is the way to go. It works with subscription, so you can share the music with your sons MP3 player, has a GORGEOUS screen, and you can view videos if you get ambitious enough. And it is easy to watch. It does have an FM radio and recorder, (unlike the iPod), and it can also record the radio. and there are lots of colors to choose from. Creative has the best sound around, and STAY AWAY from the iPod.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
