Welcome back. Don't worry you put this in the right spot.

I have a Rockboxed E250 that's a few years old and enjoy it quite a bit. I put a new battery in it last year and look forward to getting whatever that gets me. The scroll wheel is not in the best shape so that might be a problem but I'm aware of it and handle it carefully.

Would I invest another penny in fixing it up if something went wrong? Nope. As nice as it is and as much as I've enjoyed it the limitations of the original PortalPlayer hardware would remain. It simply can never sound as good as one of the original Sansa Fuzes or any of the Clips. Not terrible, but not a quality I'd pay more to keep. I have a couple of other dead ones around that I may use as parts donors if something goes bad but I won't spend any more on it.

If you want to work on it for the DIY experience or to bring back a sentimental favorite I'd do that. Other than that I'd pick up a refurb Clip+ or one of the original Fuzes, Rockbox it and recycle the broken E250.
