In need of MP3 advice.

I have a $50 gift certificate that I could use at a bunch of places, including Amazon.com, Best Buy, and Circuit City.

I want a new MP3 player with the following features:
  1. Color display
  2. Video playback
  3. Good, if not spectacular, battery life
  4. At least 30 GB of storage
  5. Black case
I've narrowed my choices down to the following, in order of preference (prices are shown before gift certificate deduction):
  1. Creative Zen Vision:M - 30 GB
    • $289 @ Amazon
  2. Microsoft Zune (2nd generation) - 80 GB
    • ~$250 @ Amazon or Best Buy or Circuit City
  3. Microsoft Zune (1st generation) - 30 GB
    • $140 @ Amazon
  4. Apple iPod Classic (5th generation) - 80 GB
    • ~$250 @ Best Buy or Circuit City
If you have a glowing recommendation or just some simple advice, please feel free to share.
