So I want to get a new DAP, preferably on or before Black Friday. I've looked at the best deals so far and it seems that the A818 for $80 and the Fuze for $60 are looking pretty good. I just want a DAP that:

- Has good SQ
- Is below $120
- Is reasonably small and stylish (Sorry D2

)
- Available in black (To match my other devices...)
- Decent navigation menus
- At least 8 gigs of storage (Expandable memory is welcomed, but not required)

And that's pretty much it. I don't mind buying online or by store, but a store is preferred. I like the fact that the Fuze can expand it's memory, has an FM tuner, and can record voices. But I also like that the A818 comes with decent earphones, has drag 'n' drop, has a pretty good battery life, and a great menu. What do you guys think I should get? What would last longer over time?

I also realize that there are other DAP's out there, so go ahead and suggest them (as long as they follow the criteria). I'm especially interested in the other Walkmans by Sony, but I can't seem to find a good price for any of them. Help?

You have to ask a moderator lol. But great question. Personally, I like the Fuze and it's much cheaper than the rest. So good. And expandable storage capacity. Yum.
