Looking for a decent mp3 player for under 100 bucks. If it had an sd memory card slot that'd be awesome, also i know this might be pushing it but if it had wifi that'd be more awesome. Post links or cm me. Thanks.

Merry christmas =D

I was looking at those on youtube this morning they seem nice. Let me know how your liking it so far.? =)

I would say that if you can find an iPod nano for that price, get it. SD memory isn't always the best you can get and those little iPod devices are pretty much indestructible.

Santa delivered an iPod nano for daughter no.2 and iPod touch for daughter no.1 this year. I'm still stuck with my iPod classic 5G from a few years back but I'd have to say iPod FTW as a general rule. Both kids have had other "cheaper" players in the past and they just don't cut it either from a functionality or "who's cool in the playground" perspective.

Get a Sony Walkman, it's small compact, hard to destroy, sleek, easy to use without looking at the buttons and it's got one thing on most other mp3 players, it has a volume button, a dedicated easy to find volume button, battery lasts for about 18 hours on mp3 mode too.

I had a sansa e260 but the wheel was wonky and badly constructed, which meant sudden volume changes. The voice recorder was nice and the radio worked pretty well but when the cable busted they sent me off somewhere else for replacement parts.

As much as I dislike most sony products this mp3 player has been going a year with no problems, hell I've dropped it time and time again. and considering I operate it 10-12 hours a day it's held up great. The headphones really blow tho but dont all the included ones?

Sansa stuff is decent... The little Clip is fun. I think the 4 GB version might even still be under $100...

There's too many MP3 players out there. Better to just check out a few stores, boxing day you'll see many great deals.

I've been using a iPod Nano (one of the older 2 gig models) for the past 2 years with no problems; had to replace the headphones for some that were louder and had a volume control but that's all. No software problems, no damage. I use it every day, travelling to and from work, sometimes at work, and at home in the evening in a random speaker dock that I bought.

Two years on as well, the battery life is good. Without charging and using the way I do I still get a weeks worth of battery life.

The headphones you use make a big difference. So does the environment in which you plan to listen to it.

If you're buying it to listen to on the train, for example, a lower quality player is fine, as are lower quality headphones. If it's for listening to around the house, or all the time (maybe at work..), then you're going to want it to be higher quality with good headphones.

I have an iPod, which is good quality, but when I listen to it on the train, I use really cheap headphones that I don't care about getting damaged (And that I've broken a couple of pairs of...). Around the house, I have really good ones.

Besides my iPod, I've had a cheaper mp3 player that was okay, but the interface was just nowhere near as good as the iPod.
