im looking for a new flash based mp3 player. my budget is $150 and under. i will be watching a few videos so video quality doesn't realy matter. i want it to be small, have video playback, and being able to set pictures as backrounds. i was thinking about the new nano, (my username means nothing) but also the creative zen v plus. oh ya about 4gigs of space. thank you

Sansa View 8GB
Creative Zen 4GB (also has SD slot)
Archos 405 (it's great for video, 2 GB but you can add in a cheap SD or SDHC card)
Cowon D2 ^same deal (2GB + SD), not as good a screen but it is touch interface

Actually, all of the new Zunes can play video.

So yeah, the Zune 4 wouldn't be a bad choice, especially since it has MUCH more features than its iPod counterpart.
