Just ordered a 8Gb R0
 
I wanted a nice quailty gadget with decent sound and build quality i.e. aluminium.

An ipod was out of the question, which narrowed it down to a few models from Sony, Samsung, and Philips.

I've just ordered an Samsung R0 8Gb, will the sound quality be as good as say a Sansa Clip+, and is this a decent device in general?

I'm only interested in audio, not too bothered about video can use my Android phone for that.

Well the software is a bit buggy sometimes...but with my firmware mod (next version that will be released in some days) nothing can brick the device (unbricking will be possible trough SD card...)
All in all is a good player...Moreover we are working now to port rockbox on it!
Audio quality is good (for me is excellent!), too.

EDIT: the case quality is just good...Alluminium back, nice keypad (robust) and the lcd isn't near the "protection" at all! So crash problems hehe

Sounds good, how far away do you think Rockbox is?

Keep up the good work!

I don't know, really. We are working on keypad now. Once it's done it, we must implement ALL the other features (from audio controlling, to radio chip).
I hope after the first problems, I and mgue can do it in some short time :)

Just got my R0 today, updated to the lastest official firmware.

I've had a couple of issues already, sometime it hangs on startup.

But I'm very impressed with the sound quality, tested with some cheap Sennheiser H202's.

Rockbox would be very nice, sounds like you have your work cut out.
