I have the 1 GB version. It feels a little cheap, and the headphones that come with it are terrible, but it's super light, super easy to use (just drag and drop your files, no drivers necessary), and expandable. When 1 GB SD cards fell below $50 on Newegg, I picked one up, and now I have a 2 GB player.

Also, I like the fact that it takes AAA batteries.

The Sandisk Blue has an SD slot?

I was not aware of that, unless you're talking about the Sansa line and not the older DAP line. The DAPs are suppsoed to be solid players (the SDMX line, that is)even if they feel cheap and plastic-like. I would ask that the OP consider the Sansa line instead, as they have SD card slots, for only a slightly higher price, and as of now, can support up to 2GB SD cards, in addition to on-board 512MB/1GB memory. I have a review here:

The 512 MB Sansa is blue. If that's not what the OP was asking about, I apologize.
