So, finally, after over two months of struggling with Mack Camera to get them to fulfill the obligations of their extended warranty, they're giving me a check for 75% of what I paid for my iHP-140. They won't send me a new iHP-140 (which is all I really want), and it looks like it's going to be a pain to find one online, since they're discontinued. I thought about getting a H340, but I think it's kinda ugly, and it won't work with Rockbox, so I'm a little conflicted on that...
The X5 sounds like it might be up my alley, but I need at least 40GB of storage. Any ideas when the 60GB version will be out?
Other than that, is there another 40GB+ player out there which fulfills my criteria? Here they are:
-1.8" drive (no 2.5" behemoths)
-Voice Recording capabilities
-Good, *present*, musical sound (I very much liked the sound of the iRiver, by contrast, I dislike the iPod Photo's rather thin, unmusical presentation)
Any thoughts? The Gigabeat might be an option, although there's no voice recording...the X5 sounds like the best bet, but 30GB just won't cut it.
