The following is a snapshot of C|net's MP3 reviews that can be found at C|Net
Tawnie wants an MP3 player. I wanted to know what is out there so I delayed sailing to build this up. After I got back from sailing and traveling to Virginia, I looked at prices and availability. So far I've looked at Best Buy, Target and Walmart.
I couldn't find many of the devices listed in the above review table at the stores I checked. I did a search for the devices I found in the stores by name on Google(tm). I found some of them on Cnet, some on Engadget and some elsewhwere. Where I found a review I put a link to it with the brand name in this table.
