On Monday,I went over to browse Fry's
,and I ended up settling on the 30 GB Zen Vision M
over an off-brand
20 GB model.Unfortunately,not only was it their only one left,the battery turned out to be defective(wouldn't hold a charge).Worse,a lot of retailers that I called up were out of stock.So,I went and traded in the defect for the slightly different Zen Vision W
.Though it was a discounted open-box,at least the battery(which can be removed and replaced)is charging properly.Since it plays video,I'm even loading the first several episodes of Futari wa Purikyua Splash Star
onto it as well as thousands of songs from my CD collection once I install the software...
Happy 24th birthday to Youko Honda...
