    I say you should go for it. The price is quite good for a 20gb and with a 3 year warranty it sounds a good thing.

    It looks a lot like the zen micro which is the same price but only 5gb (i think).

    I have heard good things about aldi's computers in magazine reviews!

    Battery life is only 8 hours. Thats V. Poor. The Rio Karma is available for the same price from Comet. I think I'd prefer that. Besides, I should imagine now that Comet have dropped their price by a tenner, Amazon will follow suit. They did it not much more than a week ago when Comet did it the last time !

    Although - if you do get one, report back and tells us how it goes. Does it do bookmarks ? (Highly important to me ! :D )

    £140? pixmania have creative zen micro at that price. on official apple uk site, the mini 6gb is £155 (free delivery) with student discount. pixmania also have Sony HD3 for £160. why would anyone get this cheap looking (my opinion) player? plus unknown DAP manufacturer

    Yep. I'd agree with my Liverpool supporting friend there. I support Newcastle - though God only knows what I've done in a previous life to be punished with that....:(

    Did anyone get this player yet ?
    I'm quite interested in the integrated SD reader...
    If it can play music and allow me to shoot picture like mad on holidays...
    then what the hey... I may well go for it.

    Ok, battery life is only 8 hours but they're exchangeable... try do that with an iPod...

    Feedback pleeeease?!?!

    Thanks in advance.
