Mobshop now has the RIO300 (same 32MB) at $53.95 after rebate. And if more buyers come in it will be $49.95 after rebate shipped. Rio also has aan extra memory expansion slot. Something to consider...

Holy cow! I spent 53.45 on mp3's to get that nomad II player, As long as I get it will have been worth it, good luck to those interested.

that rio is cool n all but you have to go for that rebate crap. rebates suck! ive spent half of the year already waiting for rebates http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif
i have that rio when it first come out!
(paying big buck)!
but Nomad2 are better in some way, u can have radio! which rio don't have! Also i believe Nomad can record your own voice for personal recorder. Also that 300 i believe use paralle port (slower)

Rebates from Diamond take a long, long time. 3-4 months is about average.

i hate those stupid rebate companies that take forever to send them out. They all say 6-8 or 8-10 weeks...and they always take longer. why don't they just tell the truth?

I almost hardly get my money back from rebate companies, so I don't even bother. If the deal isn't good from the start, without rebates, i'll most likely end up passing on it.

You know, you are allowed to do other things while waiting for your rebate check to arrive... http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/wink.gif
The RIO300 feels really cheap to me, I had one for a while and returned it. Those RCA ones feel much more sturdy.

I've owned the RIO 300 for over a year now and use it mainly on the treadmill at the gym and it hasn't let me down yet. I did however, take advantage of the Nomad II deal. It seems to be a better product and it does have a FM tuner which the RIO doesn't.
