Default Want to buy a J3 finally, looking for advice on deals

I'm finally looking to pick up a Cowon J3 32gb (black), and I was wondering if there are any good deals on it elsewhere? I searched online for a while and really only came up with JetAudio/Amazon. It's unfortunate that I have such a large music collection, requiring this 32gb player and an additional 32gb MicroSDHC... but I do listen to all of my music, and this will be a dedicated audio player only.

Any links or advice would be nice, as this is a great player, but I'm not sure I want to spend 280 USD on just it, really.

EDIT: and the store needs to have shipping options for the US.

Thanks,
Juchmis

Amazon is pretty much your best bet for the lowest price on the J3, and free, reliable, and non damaging shipping.
also, you can bet a 32gb mcro sd for ~$65 (not sure what the average is) from amazon, but its not a name brand such as sandisk:

but i just found this sandisk 32gb microsd for $75, from a different seller, but still free shipping.

Be VERY VERY VERY VERY careful when buying a 32GB card.

I don't know that anybody but SanDisk actually makes such a card yet (but I may be wrong).

However this item seems to be perhaps the #1 counterfeit/fake item sold. You get what you pay for, and when this item sells for an enormous discount over retail, caveat emptor.

So be sure to test out whatever you buy and receive with H2Testw, to ensure you got a real genuine 32GB that is 100% functional.

I know... "great price". Don't say I didn't warn you.

naah, there are some more "manufacturers" around (don't know who's only relabeling sandisk chips, though) like Transcend and Kingston.
