The Milestone  plays a few more formats including Dazy.  I don't know how 
quickly you can skip through an individual track using the creative unit.  Is 
the quality of audio output as good as the milestone?

Also, the Milestone holds more data and allows you to use memory cards which is 
another advantage.  I think it also allows you to record basic voicenotes.

Still, not sure if voicenotes the ability to swap memory and a couple of extra 
formats really justify the price difference.

  I've ordered one of these from Amazon at £27.99 plus p & p totalling 
altogether £30.12. It arrives tomorrow and sounds from the write-ups very good. 
But at that price if it's not what I want I can give it away as a present and 
not lose any sleep.


  Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

    Just read about the upcoming release of a new screenless audible compatible 
mp3 player, at under £30 for 1gg version. and no proprietory software like 
Itunes, just use it like any USB drive.
