I recently got a Slacker G2 8GB (40 stations.) I ordered one from Amazon at the beginning of October when they were still new and backordered, and finally got mine about a month ago. I was originally going to order one of the first-generation ones, but the G2 is so much of an improvement that I went for one of those instead. The G2 hardware is significantly better: it is smaller and has better battery life. The G1 devices are probably comparable in size to an iPhone, which is large considering the device does nothing other than play audio (no video, phone, or PDA capabilities.) Even though the screen on the G2 is smaller that doesn't matter since you only have to view text and album art (again, no video capabilities.)
The Slacker service is great; you listen to the music you want to hear, period. The portable devices make the service just that: portable. I probably didn't need to get the 40-station device, though, as I don't really listen to that many stations and you can make custom ones anyway. At least the stations are there when I need them, however.
I think that this WOOT, even though it's a first-generation device, is still worth it if you listen to music at all. I paid 5 times as much for my G2, although it has 4 times the capacity as well as longer battery life, all in a smaller package. The 15-station device should be more than enough for most people.

actually no..... the total space is 2GB (both radio and MP3) with 500 MB allotted for MP3 files \, the rest is dedicated storage for the "radio"
