Anything that is 10 GB or more would be what I'm looking for, I don't have any preference to brand as long as it's not a complete piece of garbage (AKA doesn't have to be iPod or Zune). Any suggestions/deals are appreciated.

    Sansa Sandisk 16GB 179.99 from Tiger Direct. I think that's a good place to start.

    What's your ideal price range, and how do you listen to music?

    I ask because Zune is the way to go if you like subscriptions. I really like the library features in iTunes, so iPods are for me. Others want only to be able to copy mp3s over to the thing as if it were a hard drive, and simply listen to full albums. They all generally use different players, or at least have preferences that they don't like to change.

    The Sansa is pretty much a SD card with a case and screen. No frills really, except you get an FM tuner which the Zune has if I remember correctly. I had an Ipod until it was stol'd. The interface for the Ipod was tons better, but the Sansa is pretty straightforward. Oh, there's a .2 second delay between tracks on the original firmware, so you need to make sure you get a *v2.

    Anything below $150, since I've found a Zen Vision M 30 GB refurbished for that price. I'm getting this as a gift for someone who uses iTunes, so I guess compatibility with that would be important (does that lock me into the iPod?).

    Yes, iTunes will load other devices as something you can copy stuff to, but all the real functionality is limited to iPods.
