    On the budget you are limited to flash players. Personally i would not get two flash players that hold very little music. I would get one hdd player for £150 that holds loads, something like the HD5 by Sony or an iRiver. If not then the only thing i could suggest is an iPOD shuffle or just an unbranded cheap player off ebay.

    dont disregard flash players too quickly, wifes got a little 512mb creative muvo in white that sounds great (with the white headphones that come with it everyone will think you've got an ipod anyway ;) ),cost about £50.

    dont buy one of those hundred cheap players off ebay...a mate at work has one and it sounds absolutely pants.

    the pooling of funds to get an hd does make sense,unless theres likely to be a row over whos turn it is for a listen.

    I've bought loads of stuff from Ebuyer without any problems. I believe people have had problems when there's been something wrong with the order though, but you tend to find that with a lot of on-line box-shifters.
