"nearly 5 years running"4.5 starson by fleshtone
Pros: Great battery life, versitile. 2 headphone outputs!
Cons: too big. joystick-style control is clumsy.
Summary: Just thought I'd mention that I bought this thing in May 2003, and I still use it nearly every day. The battery still performs very well. I love that it's a "removable drive", so I don't have to let some software (like itunes) meddle around with my music.
