Subject: Should the Sansa series be avoided?

Should the Sansa series be avoided?

Hi, all.
        I'm on the verge of suggesting that a friend buy the Sandisk Sansa
for use with Rockbox. My knowledge lies entirely in HD based players, I've
never used a flash based player with Rockbox before. Is anyone out there
having trouble with the Sansa's use? Specifically, are there any issues in
playing OGG and MP3 files with Rockbox. She's also going to be using the
speech extensively, so any trouble with that on the Sansa would be good to
know about. I have looked at the ports page, but all I can see that might be
a reason to avoid the player is that the power handling isn't optimal and
that voice recording is only available through the microphone. I'd be most
grateful to hear what experiences others have had with it.
