MP3 for serious runners

Do we have serious runners that might help with an MP3 (flash) player that works well?

Creative MuVo C100 Sport

In reply to: MP3 for serious runners

A friend of mine is an athlete who runs and mountain-bikes a lot. He has a Creative MuVo C100 Sport and loves it. Came with arm band and has 256 MB plus takes SD cards for expansion. It's also splash proof. I played with it for a little bit and it seems to be a great player for less than 100 bucks.

Sandisk Sansa

In reply to: Creative MuVo C100 Sport

I was originally going to buy a Creative flash player, but a single glance at the Creative Support forums sent me running. The headphone jack problem, which seems to affect most of their Zen players, may not affect the earlier flash players, but creative nonetheless is rumored to have bad tech support, and their warranties are usually only valid for 3 months.

That's why i recommend the sandisk sansa. it's gotten FAR fewer complaints, it has a slot for expanding memory, and supports up to 2GB SD cards now. It comes in 512 and 1GB varieties, has a digital FM tuner, a stopwatch function even, and plays mp3s and wma's without missing a beat. I reviewed the product on epinions, so you can check it out here:
