    This is a very good alternative to iPod if you just want music. Comes in 128 MB, and 256 MB. It is upgradeable via SD memory cards. My co-worker has one and I just bought 2 for myself and my wife.

    www.swdeals.com has them for a good price with free shipping and tax if you say you saw it on pricewatch.com

    Oh......it also integrates with iTunes 2, 3, 4. It's a smooth and slick interface.

    Very nice, although I would suggest that it was not meant to compete with the iPod directly. But for anyone that doesn't need or want 30 GB's of music storage, and therefore want a smaller, cheaper alternative, that looks awesome!

    Yeah, i cant see it as a competitor to the iPod but it sure is a nice little Mp3 player.

    seems like a great solution if you dont plan on having lots of songs on a player at the same time.

    I actually considered buying one of these, but you really can't compared it to the ipod. what is 128 mb (or 256) compared to the ipods 10-30 gb?? nothing.

    But yeah the FL100 definitely looks like a very good player especially if you have no need to carry your hole music library or if you want to use it while doing sport activities or the like.

    I would definitely buy this one over one of those sony mp3 players (the ones using memory stick).

    iPod is the best..

    This thing is no alternative for iPod...

    Maybe "archos" or other "archos-like" products can be an alternative for iPod but they look more like brick then a mp3 player...

    iPod is the best in size, sound quality and of course design!...

    Re: iPod is the best..

    Ipod is the best in design and size, but i read several reviews where they compared a lot of mp3 players including the Ipod, the conclusion was the Creative Zen had the best sound quality, followed by the Ipod (by a small margin though)
