goody1: man, not to brag or be an ass, but I recently acquired a mint condition used GigabeatF40 from ABi-er TDS. I immediately Rockboxed it.

Man, no joke - it really is an amazing sounding player that Rockbox makes exceptional.

Beg, borrow, steal one - well, not really the last one....

good luck on your hunt :-)

I recall hearing good things about the iRiver stuff. I have no experience with them so I really cannot say.

I suppose it the price is really great on the iRiver, why not grab it? You are probably not gonna find a Gigabeat F series anywhere else except on places like ebay - and of course it is impossible to know when stuff like that will pop up.

He's trying to redirect your attention from his Gigabeat,................he'd have to assassinate anyone who goes near it I'm afraid.

As for the iriver h340, I've heard nothing but good about it - especially after it gets RB'd. Go for it.

goody1: Yes, TDS is correct.

But also, saratoga is right on as well - a few Gigabeats on ebay.com as I write this.

There is a T in the classifieds section: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...p?do=ad&id=104
Not sure if it's very different from the F you're looking for, but I thought I'd mention it anyway..

Just stay far away from my Gigabeat F40 - I might have to cut ya if you look at it funny...

And just to make you drool a little more [and possibly spur you on your ebay hunt], here's my baby, fully Rockboxed:

I hate you lestatar lol ...it looks awesome i like the album art on it ...how big is the f40, is it as big as the creative vision m...i have my eye on a f20 so i presume it will be smaller.

Not small but not huge either...Way smaller than crap HyFyMan 801/601 and the Colorfly thing dfkt recently posted about. :-D
