Portable Music Player

Can anyone recommend a quality portable music player that plays Ogg Vorbis as well as MP3?

SanDisc has made it's own music player that works fine with ogg mp3 and it can be used as mass storage.
Stay away from Sony and iRiver (MTP) - I got those and are not working well with linux.

I have Samsung YP-F1. It even displays OGG tags.

Iriver clix - plays .ogg video (only avi i think, no ogm) and pictures (jpgs).

I had to install the latest firmware (2.01) and it works fine with the latest libmtp and amarok. Infact it works better for me than WMP11 and it's "plays for sure"
