What MP3 player should I buy?
But all the alternatives seem like a step down or appear to have flaws of their own.
I fancy one with a capacity of somewhere between 3-10gb, but size is probably more important than capacity: the smaller the better.
Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated. Thanks for your time!

I bought a Creative Zen 60Gig Jukebox a couple of years ago, because I had concerns about the iPod.
Excellent piece of kit - great sound, good battery life and easy to use. Oh and I have never had any problems with it.
It is probably too large for what you are looking for, but as a brand, I can highly recommend Creative Labs.
I really like the Creative range. I've got a Muvo N200, and although it's only 512mb, I've had no problems with it and the sound quality is better than the Shuffle, which it competes against. AND it's got a radio. I have friends with larger Creative players who also rave about them.
A new alternative which another friend has just bought (but which I have yet to see and hear) is the Sony A1000. It's a 6GB machine and has a gorgeous floating display. Certainly, from the Sony site, and the press I've read, it does look great.
