which mp3 player should I buy?

by gringitodemesa / May 13, 2006 5:21 AM PDT

I am looking for an mp3 player for under $100 whether that means its new, or refurbished. I would like it to have atleast the following:
-flash player
-Bookmark feature ( if I stop it in the middle of a podcast, when I press start again, it will continue from where I left off, instead of at the beginning).
-atleast 512mb, if not 1gb.
-either arm case, or around the neck, or belt clip.
-fm recorder
-voice recorder
- if possible using regular AAA, or AA batteries, if not it's o.k., though.
-can hook to computer through an usb cable.

I think that the above features are the ones that I can't live w/out. Any suggestions on which mp3 player would fit the bill? Thanks in advance!

couple of options
by Chip_Leader / May 13, 2006 3:43 PM PDT

Sansa Sandisk M240 1gb about $60-$70 or M250 2gb about $99

Creative Labs Zen nano Plus 1gb - about $70

The only thing I think both these may lack is the FM record feature. Not sure if anything under $100 will (but I am not that sure about it). otherwise both are awesome
