The current rockbox firmware is fantastic, no doubt it in that. Everything is much better when music isn't playing. When music is playing, the whole UI becomes a bit laggy. The touch screen in particular is unusable outside of the "now playing screen". You lose a bit of smoothness with buttons, but if you have many folders and over 100 music within them browsing and scrolling through it would be painful with the touchscreen. So in rockbox mode, i only use buttons. Also pressing the power button will force you back to main menu so i have to wake the device with the forward, play, and rewind which are known to fail. I know rockbox for dx50 is still in its early stages. I am looking forward to future update. Stock firmware have same issue too, but it was fixed after 1.2.6. The UI doesn't lag anymore when music is playing.

I guess I'll have to send it in...
Send in. Mine was exactly that. It will fail pretty soon.

You don't have to worry so much, it seems to be a few faulty device that got through. I pressed the physical buttons 5x times more than my old device already thanks to rockbox and is still working fine. There is only 5-7 people in this thread had this issue up to this point.
