It's a PVP.Only MP3 players with a large screen will show txt documents. This one does. But its about $300. Good luck!

Thanks whizkid for recommending Cowon, I went to their site and they had lesser expensive mp3 players with my criteria..

So far I have found these..

Iaudio F2 by cowon
Iaudio U3 by cowon
iRiver Clix CXW 2gb by iriver
Samsung YP-T9JQB
Kaser mambomano 20gb
Ipods of course

I really like the Iaudio players and will probably buy one of the F2 or U3, if anyone else any other recommendations, please don't hesitate Happy.

that the players you listed will display text??? I didn't think they would. If they do, then that's great!
