Up until this point ive never owned one. But the other day on amazon i noticed that a lot of songs esp classical music are so cheap that its ridiculous. I think i bought 293 songs for a dollar or something i cant remember. Anyway that made me realize that i would like to take some of that music with me when i leave the house. So i wanted to find really good mp3 player for 50 dollars or less.
Get something like a samsung
Here's a Sansa Clip+ 4 GB version for only $35. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=55-125-127&IsVirtualParent=1
Looks like a pretty basic mp3 player and it has expandable storage.
Sansa makes quality mp3 players. I still have a Sansa Fuse (the first generation one, not that touch-panel one) that I bought about 8 years ago. It's beat to shit, the paint is worn/scratched off, the wheel is fading, and the screen looks like it was used for scratch tests. The who thing looks like an ancient relic that's been dug up recently. But it still works perfectly!
