You may want to check them out to see if they have any more back in yet.

 

Unfortunately I live in Belgium, and Amazon.com doesn't deliver there. My choices are ebay, amazon de, uk or fr + some other shops. The cheapest J3 I could find was a 16gb at 180 € at amazon.de but it is not available before two months. The 32gb J3 is around 255 € and the 32gb S9 is at 225€.

 

Those are really expensive, I might wait for a sales somewhere but I really doubt that it will happen :(

try mp3player.de.

 

edit: just watched, 199 euro... too much.

The X7 120gb is at the same price as a J3 32gb on advancedmp3player, I wonder if I shouldn't just chose to huge capacity :D

 

But it's as heavy as the O2 :(

 

It's a pain to be European :(

Forgive me if I am not supposed to post this here however I just checked amazon and the s9's are back in stock. If you want the s9 I can order it from amazon and ship it to you through USPS. It is still on sale for 204.99 plus shipping and if it will fit in a small flat rate box it will only cost around 14 to ship to Belgium. If not it will cost Around 46 for a medium I am not sure why the price increase is so much but I will let you know later on today if it will fit in a small without opening it as mine should be delivered this afternoon.

Thanks for your offer but i think that i'll go with the X7, i actually do not bother carrying the O2 around but its lack of id3tag and boring browsing by folders only kill its use.

No problem to clarify though it was the S9 through amazon and not the O2.

It seems that the C2 is not much cheaper than the J3 and you also have the silly UI daily affirmations. Unless someone could get rid of those with a nice UI...

Currently on Amazon USA, a 16GB C2 is $149.99, and a 16GB J3 is $209.99. I'd call that a fairly significant price difference.smily_headphones1.gif

Well, first, when you're in for that much, $60 isn't much more. I mean, when you think of it, $60 is pocket change and so is anything short of several hundred dollars, especially these days. But of course I'm the type that no matter how much $$$ I have I still don't want to just throw it away (hence my "cheap" gear). So yea, $60 is significant in that sense, as well as that it is a large chunk relative to the overall sum of the device.

 

Second, I was really comparing the 8 gig J3 to this as that's all I need (I have cards already). Hell, 4 or 2 gigs would be ok. So the 8 gig J3 is $175 so now we are talking $25 which is no money at all, a movie for two without snacks, gone in less than 2 hours.

 

I didn't even see the C2 with 8 gigs. If that was around $100 though then that would be worth considering, though I'd pay the $75 more for a better UI without those stupid corny messages personally.

hi, dfkt

 

any idea when would the leather bound c2 be out, or if there is any rumors that it would be out? 

post #101 of 141

I just bought c2 with 4gb for $113 from mistertao.com and 32gb sandisk card for $40 from dealextreme.

i was considering also j3 4gb $170, but i decided that i save money, because

1)it has same SQ

2)it is smaller

3)i don't need better ui or bigger screen, because i have ipod touch, motorola defy+ and 7 inch tablet pc for videos

They had me at Micro SD card slot! I could care less about a crummy UI... I have a Zune HD for a nice OS experience and trust me it's NICE and SMOOTH but not FLAC support...

 

So Ultimately I'd love to get a C2 as a dedicated FLAC portable device, with the addition of the micro SD card I'm sure I can get plenty of music!

I bought a slightly used C2 for £50. I think, it was a good price. :) Previously I owned a Samsung P3, but the touch screen died after 2-3 years. So I had to find sg. The only thing matters to me is sound quality, the second thing is built quality. I do not care about video on 2-3 inch screen, or even bluetooth or anything. C2 has more clarity and detail, but smaller soundstage. Eq is more adjustable. Probably I will get used to it, but its not an euphoria after P3, as I expected.

I like the physical buttons, the good battery life and the micro sd slot. So it worth anyway. Maybe I just got used to Samsungs coloured sound, and have to accept the fact, some more natural sound is better for me... ;)
