In search of a decent portable Ogg Vorbis player

I have recently begun to seriously think about replacing my Sansa e250R v2 with another portable player that actually has support for Ogg Vorbis.

I really like the Sansa overall because it has great battery life and does what it was designed to do rather well.

However, my music collection gradually moved completely to Ogg Vorbis over the past year and Rockbox does not support the v2 model so I am now forced to re-rip my music to MP3 format whenever I want to add something new to the player (which can be a bit of an annoyance at times).

I browsed through the Xiph.Org Foundation's Portable Players wiki page earlier and noticed that the Cowon iAUDIO 7 looks like it just might be an excellent replacement.

Does anyone have any hands on experience with the iAUDIO 7 or have something else they would personally recommend?
