    i wanna buy an mp3 player upto Rs. 5k. All i need is decent sound quality, a 1GB storage capacity (if possible) and an LCD screen that tells me the current song playing.. that's all :D

    currently thinking of buying an ipod shuffle. Decent earphones are a plus, however i have another sexy set of earphones.. so that's not a big thing. thanks in advance :D

    U can check out Transcend TSonic 610. Its 1GB. Its only 3.5k thats when I bought it dunno abt now. And it has a OLED display which shows u the track ur currently playing and scrolls the album name and artist name. FM recording and all. Just that u need to buy a good pair of head/earphones. Be a lil carefull while buying headphones, they tend to discharge the battery a lil soon. Thats all.

    The only problem with Tsonic is that it's not bundled up with a charger....u need PC everytime to charge.

    BTW, its the best player considering the cost to performance ratio.

    For Rs.5000, you will not able able to buy 1gb mp3 players of reputed brands. Cowon Audio 1 gb sells for Rs.6500/-.
