NEED NEW MP3 PLAYER

I have an old sansa Fuze+ (about 5+ years old).  I really like the Fuze (except for it's innate instability), but it's days are numbered.  The battery is very weak and I have to charge it every day.  I would like to get a new Fuze or Fuze+, but they're discontinued by mfgr. I'd appreciate any advice on what to buy.  I bought one of the discontinued clip+'s and it wouldn't charge...sent it back to Amazon.  If you have suggestions, please reply.  Thanks.

You could get a refurbished Clip Zip on Ebay for around $30. normally I don't suggest refurbs, except when new ones are over double the price.

Don't know where they're getting their pricing. Clips at Microcenter, brand new, are only $49

Well, this one is $43.99.  Are you sure you looked at the right on...the one on Amazon?  Sounds like a good deal doesn't it?

Re: NEED NEW MP3 PLAYER

Yeah, it does sound ridiculous, but I need at least 16 GB (8GB player and the 8GB SD card).  I'm not paying

$96 though.  Don't really know what to do at this point...don't like the idea of buying a refurb.
