It appears that the battery on my MP3 player is dying - from full charge to dead is now about 2 hours. Now, I could go looking for a replacement battery, but I've been wondering about a new player for a while. The current one is a bit bulky (partly due to the CF slot, which is a feature I no longer need), and I'd be interested in something with a bit more capacity.

So, peeps, any recommendations?
  • Should be >60GB

  • Must not require iTunes

  • Should be able to recharge over some form of USB (MicrosUSB would be a bonus)

  • Obviously, able to play MP3 - but FLAC support would also be nice

  • Decent size screen so I can glance down and see what's playing easily

No radio, video, calendering apps or other such cruft needed.
