mp3 player recommendations?

I'm looking for some recommendations for a decent, affordable mp3 player! The ancient 20gb Ipod Classic given to me by a friend has begun dying on me, as well as freezing my pc and keeping it from rebooting. I'm going to try resetting it, but I have a feeling it's on its last legs. While mp3 players aren't necessarily a poor skill, I have long commutes between work and home and desperately need access to music at those times. I've been looking at Ipods, but being as poor as I am I feel silly doing so - I've never been someone who requires a name brand. So I'd love to hear of any decent players you all recommend. Edit: I've bought a Zune off eBay - I usually shop there since I get money back from a program so I'm not too worried about getting scammed or anything. 30gb for $60! I'm excited and nervous and I can't wait to delete ITunes! *__*
