mine is limping along on it's last breath, so i think it's time to start looking for a new one...i'm looking for something reasonably-priced (i.e. does not include the word "ipod") and i think 1GB of memory should be enough (that's more than my current one has)...any suggestions?

Some quick searching found this. No idea if its any good but for $9.99 (rebate ends 12/15) you can probably afford it. It only plays mp3 and wma files so no iTunes if that matters.

This does a similar thing, but also includes .WAV and .ADPCM, and runs on a AAA battery. If you want to add an FM tuner, click here instead. it's $7 more to have the FM.

Unfortunately most of us use AyPods here. The shuffle is ~$79 right now, and is 1G if that is vaguely interesting for you. I didn't like the others brands and though it's pricey, for the money, you get quality stuff. I've never heard of any of the other mp3 players that compare for longevity, quality, etc.

i'm anti-ipod and my roommate said hers didn't last any longer than my last (current) mp3 player, which was significantly less expensive. and as for the shuffle--while it's comparable in price (ish) other other 1gb players, i like having a screen and don't really want to give that up.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16855125009 is what i ended up with, but i only paid $75

also, just a heads up--buy.com and a bunch of other online stores are running a google checkout promotion which gets you $20 off an order of $50 or more, or $10 off an order of $30 or more....

I got nena a 4 gig samsung for christmas. I just went to best buy and bought one. When I looked around online I couldnt find what I was looking for so I just spent some of my lunch going around looking for something that had all of my three major requirements.

For future considerations, I've had very good luck with Creative's flash (i.e. shuffle-like) mp3 players. They work well even when you are sweating all over them while you're running or working out.
