Well, its getting to the point where I have been holding my Archos Recorder 20 together with bailing wire and chewing gum, and its time to start looking for a new player.

I saw an old review and the iRiver H-series seemed pretty decent, but going to the iRiver website, all I could find were solid-state units in the 2-4 GB range. I want at least 20-40 GB of storage. Does anyone have any suggestions on good players?

Hi, Bradley!

What about the iAudio X5? I have heard several good things about it from this list, and after my Archos clunks out I intend to get an iAudio for myself. Who knows? I may just treat myself and get one before that happens. :-)
The X5 can record, has an FM tuner, and you can purchase it in either a 20, 40 or 60 GB hard drive.
Here's the link where you can find out more about it if you'd like.

Good luck!
