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.
