Yay! Finally got myself a nice MP3 Player :D
Not being able to affot (or actually locate) an iPod, I got what I thought is the next best thing.
Now I'm begining to think its just the best thing.

That's what I want. I think it's so much better than the ipod. #1 reason: Drag and drop, no iTunes BS.

Question though... How is the FM tuner?

Wow, congrats man! It's a great player.

Features-wise, it's actually better than the iPod if you compare the two. Better battery life as well. Most people tend to lean towards the iPod for it's design, but if you think about it practically...the black/silver design of these alternate players is much less prone to visible blemishes than the white surface of the Pod.
Again, very nice. I'm sure it must be great to play with.

The FM radio is nice, it works, and you can record on the fly which is also nice (only in the 140 model so far, the 120 dosn't support this).
As for the price, well I managed to take advantage of the unstable russian echonomy and get it for less then 400$ :D
I think it beats the price of a 40gb iPod.

I have to agree its not the prettiest thing I ever seen, but it looks good enough for it to be in my pocket :p

Sweet, that looks very desirable. Like the light-blue glow on the remote as well :)

I've seen these puppies in my store, but haven't had the time to play with it. The specs are good, but the price... a little too high for me. I'll stick to my 32 MB Packard Bell Audio Key :p
