Too expensive? Those are good prices and on par with the iPods and Zen, along with some other players; both flash drive and HD players. This is based on prices from Amazon's listed MSRP price.

No mention of the battery life on any of those links, or anywhere else. Hmmmm...

Actually its for my daughter. I'm very happy with my Creative ZVM.

I heard the sound is pretty good. Don't even bother looking at the iPod for good sound.
