And a lot has changed in that time in regards to capacity, features, sound quality, and price. We're now looking at larger capacity flash players that are either the same price or even less expensive than than these 512 mb (yes, megabyte...not gigabyte) players were back in 2005.
I had gotten a Rio (can't remember the model) back in 2003 or 2004. It came with a paltry 64 mb of memory and I paid over $100 for it, then another $35 for a 128 mb SD card - luckily it had an SD card expansion slot.
On Black Friday 2008, I paid $37 (inc. tax) for a 4GB SanDisk Sansa Clip. An incredible deal for sure. But even at close to its normal retail ($80 but you can get it for less), it's a much better deal than what you can get in 2005.
