Advantages: no itunes, good battery life
Disadvantages: old school screen, they don't make them any more
What a fantastic mp3 player. Owned mine for years and it just refuses to die. I use mine with shure e3c headphones and i can't imagine anything better. My brother's an avid iPod fanatic, but even he admits what a brilliant piece of equipment ole' faithful is.
Sure the screen's pretty old school which is fine since i listen to music rather than watch it, and the capacity isn't all it used to be, but the battery life is tremendous, optical in and outputs, a little remote thing that gets left in the box, this mp3 player is still amazing, and compared with the iPod's of the time i've no idea why iPod's are so popular, this was leaps and bounds ahead. Ogg vorbis support, and the piece de resistance - no f*&$ing itunes!!!
The original firmware is a little clunky, but google for rockbox and you'll start leaving that iPod at home!
Summary: if you can find one swap it for your iPod!
