I just recently got an e280...interesting getting used to it, as the wheel and buttons are different than the old Fuze. And yeah, I miss the volume I usually plug it into another device, be it boombox, stereo, etc.

But I don't find the Zip's original firmware to be quirky.
I vastly prefer the volume rocker. All my headphones are powered well enough by all of my players, but I use the iPods with line-out and external amp so I don't have to use the wheel for volume.(and sure, occasionally the amp's bass boost is useful)

Same here. There are some Rockbox themes that make it a more useful, but I don't generally look at it, I listen to
