There are quite a few choices available to you, but being a budget minded (sic. POOR [img]graemlins/.gif[/img] ) individual, I chose the JVC unit as well. I picked up the model 1 down from the one you're looking at. Same features minus the aux. input. It works very well, reads the MP3 files very quickly and has adequate power to run my speakers without an amp. The remote is very easy to use as well. Not to mention that if you buy it relatively soon, there is a $30 mail in rebate available.
Hope that helps you out.
By the way, I had asked about the aux. inputs and the answer I got was that most companies had been moving away from it.
The JVC looks near ideal to me, the only thing holding me back is that in noticed that the CD only had a 95db signal to noise ratio, while some other brands were 105db. How is the sound quality on your JVCs? Do you notice any background noise on the CDs?
