Default Decent MP3/WMA Player under $100?

Ok so I know I'm a troglodyte... but I haven't taken the plunge yet for one of those little MP3/WMA players. Does anyone have one they got for under $100 that sounds ok, has a USB connector/cable w/easy drag & drop and at least works for a couple of months before it breaks?

The Zen series looked interesting but integrated battery means chuck it when it no longer recharges.... but other than Sandisk Sansa Express I haven't read too many reviews. Basically I only care if you can see what song you're going to play and it can play MP3 and WMA and you can hear the thing. And oh yeah, I don't wanna' haveta' read the manual to copy a file onto it.

We have had the Zen V since Christmas, & it works well, learning curve not too bad. I suppose you have to read the manual on any of them a little to get started.

But I know what you're saying, I can't be bothered with such stuff anymore either - I just want it to work, no questions asked! I wasn't really aware of the battery thing with them, I hadn't researched it that far. I guess when it quits I may try to pry it open & see if I can do anything with it.

Also, you have to tag all your files correctly, (which you should do anyway) or it makes for some interesting song titles/genre/etc. on the display screen!

Keep us posted on what you decide to go with, I may be interested in purchasing another in the future.

Default thanks for the input

Thanks for the input. I'm just looking to listen to some jazz tunes while walking around. If I can copy some .wma I make from my own jazz collection and it sounds decent then I'm happy. I don't care about FM radio unless you can punch in the frequency exactly. That "hit the scan until you find a strong station and save it" way of tuning drives me nuts!!

Anyway, I'm basically looking for a Walkman without the cassette tape.
