I've had it for about three weeks now and I love it. It's the fifth Creative Labs mp3 player I've owned (all five still work, by the way) and I really like their products. I also hear good things about the iRiver Clix too though. It's really a personal preference thing in the end. Decide which players have the features you need most, are in your price range, get it down to two or three models and then check out CNETs reviews. Between the editor's professional reviews and the reviews of real people you can get a really good feel for a product before you buy.
