Best high capacity mp3 player

I am getting ready to purchase a new large capacity mp3 player. I pretty much dont want anything smaller than a 160 gig drive. (unless theres a overwhelming reason to choose one) My main concern is music and ease of file loading. I want to be able to just drag and drop my files into my player. I dont want to be required to use proprietary software or anything that will convert my files into any other format. I have an extensive cd collection and all the files on my player are going to be ripped directly from these disks and converted into mp3 file via goldwave software. I take just my favorite songs from each cd to build my library, which is now at 7000 songs. Now I realize that when purchasing a player of this size, its going to mean getting lots of other features such as video and photo file support. This is fine, Ill take all the other features and advancements I can get for my investment, but my main concern are my music files. Im looking at a budget of 500.00 so cost shouldnt be much of an issue. My main concerns are 1.Quality - I want it to operate as promised with a high level of reliability. 2. Ease in loading my files - I want to just drag and drop my files from my hard drive onto my player. Its as simple as that. I dont mind if it comes with music management software just as long as Im not required to use it or load it onto my computer if I choose not to. 3. Capacity - Like I said, Im looking at least at 160 gig or more unless theres a good reason to go down a bit to a smaller size drive. 100 gig min. 4. Customer support - I want to deal with a company that I can get a hold of when something goes wrong and will promptly deal with any issues I have without a big hassle. I would love to deal with someone who allows me to speak to a real person when I have a problem. 5. A reliable vendor - I would prefer to purchase my player from a local store, but if I do decide to purchase online I want to deal with someone reliable and trustworthy. If they DO offer extended warranties, I want them to be resonalbly priced and to stand behind their products.
I DONT WANT MUCH DO I. LOL. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
P.S. Im just getting started but right now Im leaning toward an Archos 600 series player.
