Default used X5 - good or bad idea?

I'm new to this forum, so first off:


Also, I'm kind of a noob when it comes to the technical aspects of mp3 players. So bare with me.

I've been looking and looking, for an mp3 player to replace my Vision: M.
LOVE my Zen, but the battery is starting to die and I'd like to try out something different to change things up - I've had it for 3 years now.

After some research, I stumbled upon this little gadget.
And from what I've read so far, it seems like just the player I'm looking for.

I don't care about videos or photos. Just music and good audio quality.

My only wish is that it came with a larger storage.
60GB would be perfect.

Anyways, since it's been discontinued since 2007, it's hard to get a hold of one.
I found a few new ones online, but they're going for over $300

I might as well get a new Samsung P3 for cheaper.
(But I don't care for touch screens)

Now, I have found a used one within my budget.
It seems the owner has replaced the battery with a new one.

Again, I'm a noob and have never opened up an mp3 player
to do modifications or anything like that.

Is it a good idea to buy a used X5 that has had it's battery replaced?
Or is that too risky?

Any specific questions I should ask the owner before pulling the trigger?
I have already asked if any other mods have been done to it (he hasn't answered back yet).

Thanks in advance!
So glad I found this site! It rocks!
