Actually, if you're throwing it against a wall, you'd be better off with a plastic player :)

Plastic may crack, but it absorbs the shock of impacts, which protects the internal components. A...

No problems for me either, after several days (32GB upgraded to 2.51). I've only used it for music so far, but I've done a lot of messing around with settings in Claw's UCI and I've been...

If you really want lossless encoding, you're not going to get significantly smaller file sizes whatever you do. The only option to reduce file size is a lossy compression type such as mp3 or ogg. I...

If you mean a higher compression level, but staying with flac, then no, it won't make a big difference (but it will also have zero effect on sound quality). I rip flacs at level 5 since the...

It does? This is good news, as it was the one thing I didn't like about the S9.

Sorry, but that's a bit of a myth. Gifts are only exempt from duty if they cost some small amount (less than 28 or 38 rings a bell, can't remember which). Over that and they're charged at full...

I've had hard drive players for more years than I care to remember, often using them in the car where I guess they'd be subject to bumps and jolts. I've never had one skip yet.

I'm not sure how much duty is on an mp3 player - could be anything from 0 to over 15%! To calculate the total cost:

Take the full cost including shipping.
Add the duty (however much that is)....

The prices on these seem to hold up rather too well :( I'm interested in the 32GB, but it still costs 259. In contrast, the 32GB Sony NWZX1060B is now down to 192 at Amazon.

These are probably not quite as good as the Sony, but probably better than the Zoom and very cheap at the moment if you're in the USA:

It's even worse than that. The device regards 1GB as 1024x1024x1024 bytes. The marketing BS regards it as 1,000,000,000 bytes. So according to the marketing, 80GB can be claimed when it's really...
