I've had the fancier Sansas that used a touchscreen.  They break and you
can't control them by touch in the dark. Currently, I have a sansa clip
zip 4GB with a 32GB microsd card. All buttons.

I'd say that almost as valuable as the player is the setup.  I've got a
configuration file designed for my use of listening to podcasts and
audiobooks. Rockbox lets you use a file name fixed.cfg that will run
everytime you turn on the player.  That way if you aren't happy with
where you are in the menus, you just shut off the player and turn it
back on and it runs the configuration file. I use that often. My file
has automatic shut off after an hour with creation of a bookmark and
starts up 5 seconds before I shut it off. The manual explains what you
can do with a config file. There's an amazing amount of customization
possible. You'll probably need someone sighted to set it up. Connect the
player to a computer and create a file called fixed.cfg in the .rockbox
folder that you edit following what the config pages at the end of the
manual allow..I haven't changed mine for years.

  I also shut off the database so that startup takes 5 to 10 seconds.
