I just got a Sansa e280 off of eBay. I think there were about 18 Sansa e280's up for auction when I was looking about two weeks ago. I asked two sellers if they were selling the v1 model of the Sansa, and they both were. I successfully bid on one of these two players.

The Sansa e280 is going to have 8G of storage on the player itself with a micro SD card slot. I haven't done this yet myself, but Rockbox will support HC SD cards, and I know someone who added a 16G card to his Sansa e280 running rockbox giving him 24G of storage.

I have a Sansa e280 and an iRiver H10 both running Rockbox, and I find them both very accessible. I would say that they both work much better than reasonably well with voicing.
