The main question is what form factor do you need -- The T6 is pretty
tiny, and all of the readily-available alternatives are larger.
The various EROSQ/K clones are plentiful (and new). On the used market
it's nearly impossible to go wrong with an old "classic-style" iPod, as
there's a healthy aftermarket for replacement parts and you can also
replace their hard drives with flash.
The old Sansa units (eg Fuze, Fuze+, clips) too, and as long as you get
one that can use an SD card as the onboard flash is known to wear out.
