Thanks for the heads up lestatar. I can wait for the RB port (as I waited for it for the e250R and Fuze). I just want to make sure the stock FW is something close to stable. Looks like I have some more research to do. The R0 just seems to be the "perfect" player for me, but then again so what the View and look how that turned out.
Edit: After doing some more research, I decided to go with a v2 Fuze. I'd have loved to get the R0, but the firmware is lacking and there is no alternative as of yet. Sadly players like the Fuze and R0 (tactile controls) seem to be going the way of the Doodo.
