The radio in my van has developed a split personality, so DH has asked me for an MP3 player. I’m thinking Christmas, so I have a bit of time to catch a good sale. In the meantime, I found this cool MP3 player guide. There are about a bazillion models of players listed here, and you can click through to read reviews which cover things like battery life expectancy as well as product features. You can use this to compare models in your price range, which is just what I plan to do!
