dx.com has some $3-ish batteries that are crap, and some $7-10 ones that are actually pretty good. I don't think I'd pay $44 for a Mugen battery even if it's slightly better than the $10 dx battery....

It's great to hear that the new battery is working out, but be aware that high mah numbers like 2430mah on 3rd party batteries are generally fake. The true capacity is unlikely to be any higher than...

Meh, adding more player brands would turn this place into ABI or Dapreview, both of which are about as moribund as this site. Actually it looks like dapreview is down or maybe even dead.

29h doesn't sound too bad... not sure what advertised runtime is but it's always unrealistic, especially if you use the fancier codecs.

You don't like the i9+? It seems like a nice player and it's small.

Main issue with the D20 and these big cards is the D20's 8000 file limit. Yes 128GB full sized cards are getting amazingly cheap, and there is now even a 256GB PNY card that was available for a...

The d2/d20 is a smaller player but not especially easier to carry than a cell phone which is probably close to X9 size. When I want a really small player I have a couple of Sansa Clips. Truthfully...

From the youtube video it looks like the battery is around 50x50mm though the picture doesn't show the part number (which usually gives the dimensions). I'd like in the D2 forum sticky thread about...

Based on feature comparison I think the D20 is a repackaged C2 with a bigger battery, rather than using the same board as the D2/+. It has 2x the battery runtime of either the D2 or the C2. What I...

Wow that's a great price, I'm kind of tempted but have too many players and am going to resist. I didn't realize they made an 8GB version of the X9 (not a problem since there's an expansion slot)....

Cowon has never sold a 128GB flash player for $300 and I kind of doubt they're about to start, though it will be great if they did. Plus there is the issue of the aluminum case mentioned by El Maco,...

I start to think the internal 128GB is a bad sign regarding whether the player will be affordable. That's around $100 worth of memory if you bought in SD cards, and player mfgrs always multiply this...

A $500-700 Android player sounds like an ok idea for rich audiophiles I guess. I wouldn't buy one myself. It would actually be more interesting if it ran Rockbox in my opinion. Anything with...

The i10 is not expandable and I think it never really caught on: the i9+ kind of replaces it. The i9+ is also not expandable, but is available up to 32GB, so maybe that can satisfy you. It looks...
