None. The V2 is a piece o sh*t! Fragile, unreliable, batteries prone
to swell and break the thing apart, non-field-replaceable batteries
(tools required), jacks come out the sides which impairs pocket carry,
easily broken buttons. I could probably think of a few more.
A couple of years ago I caused 5 of my friends to buy V2s because they
were available at Best Buy. All 6 failed within a month or two. I
went through 3 on warranty replacement before I gave up. My last one
had the infamous battery swelling failure. The battery just kinda
exploded the player as it slowly swelled.
Only thing I can figure about the V2 is that some product manager was
REALLY stoned when he replaced the V1.
