Help Real battery life?

i am thinking of getting 16 gb cowon s9
but is it's battery life up to what it says
my main use will be on long road trips with little oportunity to chage up
is it worth holding out to see what the samsung m1's batterylife is like

Moved your thread from the news forum and renamed the topic from "help me decide!!!". A user signature has never been more true... at least you gave your own thread 5 stars.

As for your question: yes, the S9 reaches more than 40 hours battery life in reality, for audio playback.

Nobody knows the battery life of the M1, since it isn't out yet. However, I have yet to see a Samsung player that comes close to battery life of a Cowon.

Read through the Cowon S9 forum, as well as the other brand sections, and you'll get your answers.
