Yes, I think in generally it is logical to assume that on-board flash memory is going to be faster and more trouble-free than external cards.
Also, the 16 gb cards barely came out- and 32 is not going to be out until next year. And they WILL BE EXPENSIVE! The additional 4 gb on the device is worth paying slightly more for. And then stick to 8 gig cards. That’s still a BOAT-load of files!
And then there’s this issue of Fuze organization and a (roughly) 4000 song limit. You will exceed that with a 32 card for sure.
So up to you- those are just my opinions.
I just got an 8 gig silver, and will be getting a couple of 8 gig cards eventually. They are pretty cheap now- around $20-25. That’s 16 gigs total! Which is really an enormous amount of music and data.
BTW- I like Voice Recording too. It would be cool if the firmware allowed assigning the voice recording files to the SD card for easy offloading. But that’s a fine point.
They ARE working on cracking the firmware over at Rockbox. I’ll bet that next year see’s the first Rockbox build for Fuze. Then the possiblilites may really open up.
