Here is what I am looking for:
No less than 20 Gb. I would prefer something 30 to 60 Gb.
Easy interface. I don't need a lot of bells & whistles. I don't really care about video.
Good quality of music playback.
Hopefully something that doesn't require special software on the computer. It would be nice to just drag & drop mp3 files to the player.
Something that will last more than 13 months. I will be using it often (work, home, car).
I DO NOT want another iPod. Please do not try to convince me that the 5th generation is any better than the piece of crap 4th generation I have now. If I need another paperweight, I'll go outside and find a rock or something.
I have been taking a serious look at the Creative Zen Vision:M. I read in a CNet review that the touch-pad controller can be "fustrating". I'm not sure what this means but I might make a trip out to Best Buy or Circut City to have a "hands-on" look at one. Does anybody have one of these? Can you give me an opinion?
My thoughts are not limited to the Zen line of products. I am willing to look into any make or model of portable MP3 players.

It's an older model and sounds better than many new mp3 players. As for durability, I strap it to my belt and listen to it while riding my lawn tractor, and it has never had a problem. But, as with any HD based player, you don't want to slam it very hard into something or you could damage the hard disk.
