    I'd like to get a MP3 player but am totally lost when it comes to finding a good one. There are so many out there. I want one that's easy to use, easy to download songs on to (maybe from a cd?). It dosen't have to have a ton of memory or bells and whistles but I'd like it to be small and portable.

    Mainly I'm buying it to bring with me to the hospital when I have baby #2. I want to download some relaxing songs. I have a portable cd player but every time I bump it even a little it skips. I need something that I'm not going to have to keep messing with while I'm in labor.

    So, any suggestions? Where are good places to purchase one? Any good online stores?

    I have a Sansa by SanDisk and love it. I bought mine when we were looking for one for my daughter and didn't want an Ipod. This one is so easy to use and downloading music is easy. I take mine everywhere. We ended up getting one for my 10 yr old and she loves hers as well. Good luck with your search.

    I highly recommend the RCA LYRA or pearl. They are both under $40 and are easy to use

    The SanDisk Sansa Shaker (1GB) can be had for about $35 at Best Buy. It recieved a pretty good rating from CNET.com.

    DF has a Sansa clip I bought him for Christmas for like $60? It's nice and little, and well, it has a clip (removable)... plus I can listen to the radio. I mean, uh, DF can...

    Totally agree with the Sansa Clip recommendation. They're great players, and it has a built in digital FM radio too, which is a must in my opinion.

    $60 at best buy
