Hi, does anyone know any good sources other than DB electronics for kosher mp3 players (no radio, etc)?

I think what they do is just remove the radio capability from s/t like this:
SanDisk 8GB Clip Jam MP3 Player, Red - microSD card slot and FM Radio - 20.99

SanDisk 8GB Clip Jam MP3 Player, Red - microSD card slot and FM Radio - SDMX26-008G-G46R ($20.99)


So if you can get someone to do that, at this price, it may be worthwhile.

ETA. TAG does it for just a $5 insurance charge

TOTAL: $25.99 which is cheaper than DB

There is no charge however there is a $5 insurance fee to cover damage or loss of the device.
What's that supposed to mean?

Not sure, but I think it means that they pass along a charge of $5 from a company that covers if they mess up.

Then that should be optional, if I'm willing to take the risk they should do it for free.

No idea, maybe text or email them about it?

I'm guessing people might be willing to take the risk, unless things don't turn out well. After a few experiences like that, they might not want to make exceptions :-)

Do all TAGs do this?

I'm thinking maybe they don't hire any insurance, but mandate the fee as their own insurance.

The only way to find out seems to be to contact your TAG because TAG Flatbush seems to be the only one with a developed website

This does not have radio, or play videos and has great sound quality and battery life for a more expensive but better value.

I recall that for an older very popular SanDisk mp3 player it was just a matter of downloading a different firmware from their website and installing it, to eliminate the radio.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Until they figure out how to switch it back to the original VERY easily.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Yes their older mp3 players Actually ran better chips, there's a firmware called rockbox that is able to be out on it, that increased the value of the player from $30 to $100! (2 years after they stopped making them)
