Thanks for the info. :) Your post actually got me into looking for an
ogg player again. (Been meaning to get one for quite a while now.) I
looked at the iHP-120 but it was a bit too expensive for me. I then
looked at the Neuros 128MB Player (http://www.neuros-audio.com) and
found a much more agreeable price. The 128 MB player is $99 (US), or you
can get it with the 20 GB HD 'backpack' for $229.

It apparently supports ogg vorbis, mp3, and wma, as well as ENCODING to
mp3 from the built in microphone port. Overall, it looks like a
relatively even match for the player you recommended. I ordered mine
today but it's on backorder so I don't really know when it'll come in.
As soon as it does come in I'll post my experiences on here.
