It's a kind of offtopic, but--





I'm looking for a not expensive, preferably desktop mp3 player, that'd feature a screen and would be VERY EASY to navigate through folders. Thing is, I want to make a gift for my beloved granny who.. is not that young anymore, and I had difficulties teaching her how to set up the clock on our microwave. I want her to listen to audiobooks, which I believe would be a pleasure for her. But all the players I've seen in the local shops are tiny, battery-powered and stuffed with unneeded features. What I want is simple menus, large buttons and at least 2GB of storage. I'd be very glad to see your recommendations, dear TR.

You could consider the Sony E-Series 2GB or 4GB models that feature a decent 2 in screen, one of the easiest navigation systems and large text and menu icons. You could check out the interface through a video available on anythingbutipod.com (for A829, but interface is common).


I'm not sure if they support audible format though.





Both the players are available at a great prices on advancedmp3players.co.uk

It's nice to know the player is 4.5cm long and 1cm deep, but perhaps you could also mention how much memory it has?

Although this device plays audiobooks it's worth noting that it does not support bookmarks. A very frustrating discovery after I purchased the BBC dramatised adaptation of the Lord of the Rings - some 13 hours of audio without a single opportunity to save the page I am on. Fortunately I have a TomTom which does support bookmarking so I can listen to this book in the car.

I'm new to MP3 players etc so this might be an obvious question, which is probably why it's not answered in the reviews. I'm buying one specifically to download podcasts from the BBC, and other sites that specify iTunes iPod etc. This one looks well priced and easy to use, but will I be able to download these podcasts? Thanks
