    i am looking for at least a 2.5 inch screen, 30 gigs of storage, nice slick look and a good price
    also if you can find one with wi fi that would be great

    At 30GB your only choices are iPod or Archos at the moment, the other manufacturers seem to have abandoned large capacity players. If you can track one down Creative's Vision:M is supposed to be quite good, but I don't think it has wifi.

    Oh wait a sec... Creative's website says the Zen now comes in 32GB? When did that happen?

    I strongly recommend the Archois 605 WiFi, you can get one refurbished for
    $209
    http://stores.channeladvisor.com/Bigcitydi...?itemid=2181383

    Or new for $267
    http://www.erwincomputers.com/500948.html

    The highest resolution screen you can get on a PMP (800x480) so it can display DVD resolution (720x480) natively
    It plays xvid videos without conversion
    Plays .vob files straight from a DVD
    Plays h264
    Plays WMV
    PDF reader
    Plays mp3, AAC, AC3, WMV, DRM'ed WMV (Plus ogg and flac with mplayer in linux)
    4.5 hours of video playback
    You can get a mini dock for $20 (TV output, USB input for any mass storage device like thumb drives, mp3 players, external hard drives, AC in) or a battery dock for $30 (same as mini dock, but has extra battery for 6 hours of video playback)
    Web browser with flash 7 (9 coming in a firmware update soon, press conference is on the 22nd)
    rmvb plug in is coming soon to the US, already out in china
    It can stream videos, music, pictures, ect, from your wireless network - and download them to the device's internal hard drive. Can also act the opposite way as a wireless file server.
    I've done this - the screen is a high enough resolution to view manga with no zooming or panning, all you have to do is flip them
