Default MP3 players

Any idea where I can get a cheap one and what sort of size I'd need. I'd be prepared to buy off ebay if I could get a cheap brand. I'm looking to store about 50 songs really don't need more than that to go to the gym.

Any ideas and recommendations?

Can I get that in the UK?

I think walmart is asda so maybe I'll have a look. The main consideration is price I don't care about how nice it looks as long as it can withstand the stepper

I think Argos has a few pretty cheap...goes to argos.co.uk to check....http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produc...%2Bplayers.htm
256mb holds about 60 songs and you can add more storage as an SD card, they have more a little bit more expensive like a 1 gig for under £50. They won't skip since there is nothing to skip and should hold up.

I love my ipod shuffle for the gym - 512mb is more than enough to go for a week or so without refilling it. I'm sure there is other stuff out there too, but all my music was already on iTunes so I went for the option that wouldn't need me to reload everything!

Mine is from WalMart too. It's a Venturer. I think there's 40 songs or so on it.

I got mine from Asda they have a sale on at the moment. Mine is a Dual 256 I've got 68 songs on it and it's 19.99 at the moment. I like the earphones with it as they are on a cord loop that goes around your neck so they don't fall off.

There are loads of good ones around at great prices.... Currys, Asda, to name just a few.

I just upgraded today and bought myself a new 20BG Philips Jukebox... it's cool but I've save hard for it!

Oooh maz is that the philips one that looks like a black pebble and you can't see the screen till it's turned on? *dribble* I'd love one of THOSE!

However I will have to wait till I bust my Zen (more)! I've already dropped it and the key pad's popped out, but it still works - PHEW!

I would say Argos, Tesco and amazon probably have good deals on tiny MP3s.
