MP3 Players Reviewed

I've been meaning to write up my impression of a few MP3 players I've tried, since although the web is full of MP3 player reviews, hardly any of them give you any idea of how the beast actually works when playing music -- does it remember its position in a song? Does it stay in random mode, and how hard is it to get into that mode? Can you fast forward? All those details that are critical in day to day use, but which are impossible to tell from the packaging or, sadly, from most reviews.

The review came out rather long, so instead of making it a blog entry I've put it on its own MP3 Player Review page.
