Who has a Rio S30S mp3 player? Opinions?

I'm interested in buying the Rio S30S mp3 player when I run and work out. I was wondering if anyone had this player and what they though...pros and cons?

OR...if you have a different model/brand that you run w/ and you would recommend...let me know the pros and cons.

I'm really looking for something that attaches to my arm like the Rio S30S so it is easy to run with.

All opinions welcome.

got the rio s35 for christina for christmas. same model, but its 128mb and the s30 is 64mb. pay the extra cash dude. its light as hell, but the armband isnt so great. Kruz has a similar model and likes the armband though. Provided software is ok, not steller, but it works.

i have an old rio500 i've had for over 3 years. Still runs, and I love it!!

I have a Yepp 128 MB that I bought a few years ago. It works great, the software sux, but it's got the arm band, neskstrap, and waistclip. I like it. The only bad thing about it is that the batteries die too quickly. Takes one tipple A battery. I was thinking about spending the money and getting a set of rechargables and the charger for like 50 bucks... it would save money in the long run. But yes, I deffinatley like it.

I had the s30 and the s50 loved them both. But i broke everyone of them every 3 months. They are fragile!!! but i am also a monster. I would go with the IPOD myself that was the only draw back of the RIO`s not enough room! to get alot of music you had to convert them to a smaller size. when you do that you sacrific the quality. thus inturn GET THE IPOD 15gig for 299.00 i think.


Anyway you look at it Buy it at BEST BUY and get the EXTENED Warrenty. I never paid for any of the RIO`s after the frist one last April. 199.00 i paid for the 128k with a expansion slot good for up two 512k SD Chip. When i broke the last one two weeks ago. they nolonger made my model. so i got a 199.00 credit and put it towards a 5 gig IPOD for 219.00. and the warrenty started all over again. I love to SCAM THE Dumies.
