if you're on a tight budget I'd recommend this mp3 player with the 6.99 Logitech Ultimate Ears 200 Noise-Isolating Headphones. Everything about this mp3 player is easy. Whether you want to use drag and drop in the folder view or whether you want to synch it properly with Windows Media Player, it's all easy. Unlike most cheaper mp3 players the whole navigation when using it moves smoothly and fast, there's no lag and no crashing as of yet. It has all expected features such as shuffle, repeat, playlist, equalization etc. and one thing I did like about it is when the center button is pushed it travels between now playing list and one that lets you view a graphic equalizer displaying what frequencies are being used. A nice little note about the headphones I mentioned is they come with a little protection pod but as the mp3 player is so small that can fit in the pod too.
