Second Al94's choice. I've had a Sansa Clip for some time. The earphones failed after a year and I got a better quality set to replace them which was well worthwhile.

That was my topic! The iPod Shuffle did charge up. I just had to go into My Computer and eject it first.

It's proved to be a good buy, and I recommend it. It does take a bit longer to transfer tracks from iTunes, but that's nowt.

I bought this one click here last year for about £40 and been very pleased with it.

I followed the other thread for interest and now here. I thought Sansa looked good value too.

But I have not used a Walkman/MP3 player for years.
I use my mobile phone now.

Can go up to 8GB uSD.

What is the advantage of dedicated MP3?
Battery capacity? Duration?

If I listen to my phone I get about 4-5 hrs.

My mobile rapidly uses battery whilst my Sansa lasts days (not on constantly). I can also link it up to a MP3 connection in the car and play it over the car speakers. Although I Suspect that I could do that with the phone too.
