So far I've used Rockbox on my 30GB iPod video, and I'm very pleased with
it. For me,
it's great since the majority of my music is encoded as Vorbis and FLAC
(audiophile, I love
the two formats). I just recently bought an iriver H320 for my girlfriend
from eBay (20GB drive)
and installed Rockbox on it for her. She loves it since she can listen to FM
radio, record
notes for her classes, and play Doom in her spare time; plus, most of her
music is in FLAC
format as well.

But the good part about the iriver is that you can swipe the drive in it for
a larger capacity one,
provided that you buy either a single platter (H120/H320) or double platter
(H140/H340) drive.
The controls on the iriver are simple to work with; they're entirely button
based. Lastly,
the iriver looks to be the next officially supported port in the Rockbox
lineup, so you can't
go wrong there.
