Advantages: small and the radio function is excellent
Disadvantages: too slow, not easy to navigate in the menu
I have bought my sony mp3 player about 2 years ago on amazon, as it was a bargain price (£45 for 2gb). I read reviews about it there and then and even though many people said it was quite slow to upload, it appaeled to me that I can just drag and drop my favourite songs on it. I still have it, and use it sometimes, but has fallen completely out of it, I do not like it anymore and I have a feeling it will go on ebay rather soon.
The sony NWD-B105F digital music player has 2gb, fm tuner, usb connection (that's how you charge it), auto transfer mode, voice recorder (have not figured it out why it has and what is the purpose of it) and colour lcd.

I have the black version of the mp3 player, it's quite small but you can't attach to your gym top/trousers as it does not have a clip on. You can make folders on it, and put your songs but navigating between folders is really time consuming. It has a radio and you can preset 20 channels- I used this all the time, the radio is the best feature of the mp3 player. You can drag and drop songs, without worrying of putting them into the right format, although it can't play MP4 format and it took me a long time to put the songs from Itunes to the player itself. When you switch it on, it takes at least 10 seconds to load the menu, sometimes even longer, and to be honest with you I really don't like it. I bought an Ipod after i started to run in the park, and you can't compare the two. I had to change the earphones about 3 months after I bought it on amazon, as they weren't the best. Overall I can recommend it to someone who doesn't want to spend much money on an mp3 player, or for someone who has never had an mp3 player.
Summary: Buy it if you are on the budget
