I bought an Cowon IAudio X5 a few months back. Works great.
No problems sofar (if you disregard the endless loop it enters
when you give it a 0 byte sized mp3). Also reflashing is no
problem as it doesn't need any special utilities.

And for those a little bit more advanturous can try Rockbox
on it :-)

Although ipods make up here maybe a third or even half of
the market, there is still some competition. Just have a 
look at the lokal mp3 player store

If you ask why i bought an X5, it was the only non-ipod
with a 60GB drive :-)
