well, I think you pretty sumarize it well, beside the recording
limitation, and the batterie issue, the Sansa is a real winer, and
rockbox start very fast on it since it's a flash player.

Personally, I'm quite happy of it as a second MP3 player, it do not
rmplace my Iaudio x5, but is a welcome complimentary player for my
daily use when I go to work for example, cause in this case, the
recording of meetings etc. is just fine with the sansa.
