question about mp3 players

so...i'm thinking about buying an mp3 player of some sort this month, but i need some help. i'm looking for something under $200, $250 at the very most. i'd like something that holds at least 15GB but I don't need much more than that. I also don't need any video, photo, color capabilities, etc...just music. whether or not it's the ipod brand means nothing to me, I just want something that's good quality and will last me a few years. anyone have any suggestions? i'm not necessarily opposed to going on ebay for the older ipod, but i'm wondering if that's a good idea.

there's one i'm looking at right now, the MP-180 from argosy
http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...pe=rv#moreinfo

anyone have any experience w/ this one?

thanks

I don't know much about small mp3 players but I have a 2 year old 15GB ipod and it's great! Getting an ipod without a color screen a year or so old should be fine

you could make a lot more than that on ebay, at least $200...

i'm not sure if i should get a used one. not that i don't think youve taken care of it, but according to the dude i was talking to yesterday theyre only meant to last a few years even when taken care of.

what about the gmini XS200, 20 GB. anyone have this one?

(yes, i'm pretending other people are actually reading this thread)

i dunno, maybe that's just what they tell you to convince you to buy a new one every other month.
