I want to buy a new MP3 player. I would like to know your suggestions.The following are my requirements:It should have a minimum memory of 1 gb, but not more than 4 gb.It should have a great sound quality.It should have FM.It should have a decent battery life.It should preferably be able to play various formats like mp3,wma,wav,ogg.I have not decided on the cost, but a mid range one should be fine.Also I do not care what make it is as long as it has all the above requirements and a great sound quality.Kindly suggest any good ones you know and it would also be helpful if you could provide the cost. :)

Not unless you can convince an importer to get it for you.i was looking at the box of my BenQ DVD writer and it has this stickerName & Address of ImporterAditya Infotech Ltd44218 Ganesh Bazarcloth marketDelhi - 110 006Now if u could find one in ur city then it may work, be prepared to pay a premium for it tho.

Go for Transcend ....I recently got a 512 MB player for Rs 2900 .It has all the features you quoted above. (only no OGG support though )So 1 GB should be around 4000.....look aroung at lamington road. (if you are in mumbai)Also , visit a good number of shops before you buy one, because I went to around 16-17 shops , where I was quoted about Rs 3800 for the same player , and then I finally got it for 2900 at this particular shop!!!So a lil bit of walking around helps!!

I've had a Rio Sport mp3 player for 4yrs now. Came with 64MB built in memory plus a 32MB MMC. Added a 512MB Kingston MMC 2yrs back. Gives me a solid 10hrs worth of mp3's. So look for MMC/SD card support. Even if the internal memory is low u can always upgrade.

Yes even i was thinking of expandable memory ones, but if it has internal memory of 1-2 gb I wont mind.Local ones I somehow dont feel right about. :(Obviously I would ask a few places before buying to see whos selling it cheaper, even I have experienced that. :)

Some info here.A few weeks back, I mailed the Creative dealers here in Chennai. Turns out the Neon is Rs.11200 approx. (4 or 5 gb i dont remember).The Creative Zen Vision M is Rs.28000 according to him.I got myself the Creative Zen Vision M from the USA for Rs.14500.If you dont mind having only 1gb, i found a SanDisk 1gb mp3 player here for Rs.4200.
