Yeah, the Zen Neon looks like a great player.
Creative Zen Micro is another one which is almost the same, and comes in 4gig and 5gig models.
Since the Neon is a newer player though, it might be worth going for, since it has the same features as the Micro, and has changable backlight colours
What a plus! hehe
Creative is also known for the quality of sound, and you won't be dissapointed. Creative hold the best record for quality.
I think its a 97db signal to noise ratio which is excellent, and most players dont get close.
