Last time I had asked the forum for some buyer-advice about an external hard-drive, and that has worked out pretty good so far
. So I have another question: My mum wants a MP3 player for Christmas. I did some research, and very quickly found out that the ones that are cheap and below $60 fail pretty quick, and those that any good start at $200+. Very few fall in that sweet spot between 80-150 dollars. Times have really changed since last I got a Sony Walkman for 50 bucks (that I still have, and it still works). With all these cellphones and iPads (which my mother flatly stated she did NOT want...), it seems that mp3's have become something of a novelty
So, if anyone has any advice and suggests, it would be welcome. I've already investigated the top amazon options, and none of them seem to work. A good brand-name and a price-range between 100-200 dollars would be great.
