    My experience with finding an ogg music player

    I want to share my recent experience with finding an ogg compatible ogg media player. I am about to take trip in a few days and I don't have time to mail order. My in-car entertainment is going to be linux podcasts (24 hours with or 2gb). I have a 1gb Samsung ogg player that I purchased at Best Buy a year ago, but not enough space.

    So, the task at hand is to purchase a 2gb ogg player at the local shops. I went to the major stores in my area (CompUSA, Best Buy, Circuit City). Unfortunately, the was only one ogg player (iRiver Clix 2gb), but I didn't like the reviews of this player. It was disappointing to see the lack of choice of ogg players in the local shops.

    I came to the realization that these were my choices.

    1. Mail-order a Cowon iAudio player - supports ogg, works with linux, $287 for a 60gb.

    2. Buy an iPod and2. Buy an iPod and install RockBox on it - ubiquitous, lots of
    add ons, good design.

    Is there another option?

    Thanks in advance for posting a reply.
