which MP3 player should I choose

I have been looking for an mp3 player and i'm stuck between two. I've been looking at the SanDisk Sansa m240, which is 1 gb. The only downside is, is that I have read that the firmware isn't the best. The other one is the Creative Zen V 1gb. Which one should I get? Does anyone on here have either one of these...if so, do you like it? have you had any problems with it? Do you recommend it?

sansa m240 is a bad idea

In reply to: bumping this post

Do not get the sansa m240, if you look around not only is the firmware not the best, it seems to completely crap out pretty early on. My girlfriends just died after about a week, when looking for a possible solution to the problem I found that it is very widespread. The solution Sandisk gives is to RMA the device, problem is the new one ends up doing the same thing again. Basically the general opinion I have seen on this player is that it is a piece of junk and basically a waste of money. A recall of some sort is expected.
