DMC Xclef HD-500

Humongous amount of storage; reasonable audio quality; big but busy screen; detailed manual; decent FM radio; includes voice, line-in, and FM audio encoding; average battery life; awesome transfer speeds.

The biggest (and heftiest) MP3 player we've tested in years, thanks to its 2.5 inch notebook hard drive; beefy portable drive inside doesn't come cheap; doesn't play DRM-protected WMA files; weak Web site support.
