This bit made me smile ... "I disagree. I've also tried various flash players, most recently Creative's tiny MuVo N200 (512 MB, $130), which is shorter than the Shuffle, and the iRiver iFP 890 (256 MB, $150). Both have small but effective LED displays that show song titles and lengths and let you navigate to a specific tune." ... can you imagine joining the dots to read these
Fair comments though, didn't like the idea of no display, but sorta softened his view in the end.

I find it interesting that so many of these reviewers are ignoring the target market --
The biggest knock being the lack of a screen. If anything that's a plus when riding my bike. Now I don't have to worry anout an LCD cracking on me, or going wonky after getting wet.
Can't locate songs. Hmm, if I wanted to locate songs, I'd use my big iPod. And I can't remember the last time I was biking down the road, and pulled out my iPod to scan through a playlist...
They are completely right, this will not replace an iPod Mini. I have a feeling that the design team was also told "make sure this does not replace the iPod Mini", since they don't want to cannabilize their own sales.
