    Does anyone have an opinion on which is the better buy.
    Both are currently £99
    Im upgrading from a 2gb stick player so have never had the luxury of a screen. So not sure how much use I would get out of the larger screen on the 729.
    When Ive tried using Radio in the past ive always had problems getting a decent reception, so not sure if i'll definately need it.
    Im assuming they have the same headphones and of equal sound quality.

    If I cant decide im getting a Sansa fuze, just because it appears to do most things and is expandable

    Any recommendations would be most welcomed. :confused:

    Hi Martyn7772

    Both great players!! If you arent going to watch video too much then i'd personally get the slightly smaller 639. The buttons are "round" rather than a "flattened oval" on the 729/829 - which I find slightly easier to press. I dont use the 639 radio too much - but it's fairly usable in the areas I'm in - and nice to have built in (IMHO). They are both great players - i'd say there's not a lot to worry about whichever you end up with!! I dont use either of the supplied phones though - but I understand that they are quite a bit better than the usual supplied earbuds.

    Regards.
