there a players out there that also do FLAC that cost the same as the ones that don't have that.

only trouble after hearing that near perfect sound quality coming out of your earplugs, most MP3 you have will sound like crap..

The disk usage of FLAC is substantially higher but the price of storage on mobile devices has dropped considerably.
So the choice is do you want to carry more music or better sounding music...

Well all players that do FLAC also do MP3, so it's just an option I think you should consider..

RE: best mp3 player?
i've had about 7 different mp3 players through the years.

The one i like most is the Cowon D2.
Best sound quality i've ever heard, if that's what you're looking for.
Also supports flash, so the user community provides a lot of killer customizable skins and whatnot.
It also has expandable SDHC storage, so i had a 16gb SD card in it.
52 hours of audio playback on 1 charge (that is not a typo)
Intuitive touchscreen to boot.

The ONLY drawback that i saw with it was that it doesn't support AAC. But if your a purely MP3 guy (like me), i think it's the best out there.

I have owned an iPod, Zune, and a Sensa Clip. Out of those I like the cheap Clip the best. The mains reason ...? Because it does not require any software, and allows drag/drop. And it builds its own database to easily browse tags. I'll never buy another music player that does not allow drag/drop out of Explorer. Look at the creative Zen models. I think they support this.

I couldn't agree with this more. Drag and drop is an absolute NECESSITY for me now. Syncing with software is just painful, buggy, and time consuming.

The Cowon D2 that i mentioned above allows for drag and drop as well.

The drag and drop in windows is because of the PlayForSure standard
