I am looking for a MP3 player. My requirements:

1) Not an iPod
2) Large HDD space - 70+ GB or ability to replace HDD easily
3) Good battery life
4) No software needed to move files to player
5) Good sound quality
6) Do not care about appearance or size as long as is portable and works

Any suggestions? I bought an iAudio X5 a couple years ago, it's a 20GB model, and it does everything I need and more, except the battery life is too short, and the storage size too small. I am surprised that the storage size has not increased over the last couple years. Aren't hard drives always getting larger?

All the Archos players are drag and drop, ridiculously easy to use and have excellent sound quality.

Yes, I went to CNET but did not find any useful information. And, most people review players based on the iPod, and since I don't like the iPod, it's not useful.

Looks like the largest MP3 player for the Archos is only 20GB, they mostly have video players.

Well, back to searching... Maybe the iAudio will come out with a 80GB or 100GB model soon. :emo
