I like rockbox on the sansa. It has that sound that people were mentioning, but its not that much of an annoyance to me. The sound quality with rockbox is excellent, and the player is much improved. I too use the voice on it, and don't have any problems. HIghly recommended.

I bought a E280 for my son and installed Rockbox on it.
There were no problems at all but we don't use the voice interface.

Of course, you have to avoid V2 versions but if you have a Rockbox
compatible device it should work by simply copying the installation files to
the player and invoking the sansapatcher.exe program (that changes the startup
boot code). That's all.

Ok, prior to copying the files to the player you have to change the USB
configuration to mass storage device on the player.

So far we didn't find any problems with Rockbox on the E280 and it is
so much better than the original firmware. I would never by a player
that is not Rockbox ready. ;-)
