Default Fuze Good enough to upgrade from e260R?

Have a 260r with rockbox and wondering if there is enough to justify for a 4gb or 8gb Fuze.

1) Sound Quality that much better than V1 260 rockbox 3.2?
2) 30% smaller than the 260? which is a plus. Since the clip seems a tad to small and less on screen info.

Don't care about video's (except possible pmp) or radio and such.
It's all about the Music.

Would be interested on your take as I am back and forth on this. The other is to go full out for a Cowan 16gb D2 at $175 ? Or are there any pmp's that you can drag and drop avi's,mpg's,etc without all that convering crap.

Seems like it takes more time to find,tweak,convert and transfer than it is to actually than to just watch the damn movie. And is way to much work to justify video on pmp's and mp3 players.

Again any insights are greatly appreciated.

The Fuze blows away the E series in both sound quality and features. It's pretty much unbeatable at it's price point.

As for video, no players at this price point support "it just works", no conversion, drag and drop video. The all have a narrowly defined supported format that you must convert to. To get a player with broad native codec support, you need to step up to a true PMP, which means a considerably higher price point.

i have a Fuze and a c240. i don't even use the Fuze anymore because i like the Rockboxed c240 way better. the c240 is smaller + you can replace the battery.

and i really liked my Fuze but Rockbox is a must if you want gapless playback.
