need recommendations for simple sample-and-hold sampler

hey dudes. I'm looking to buy a really cheap sampler - something so user friendly it's idiot proof, and under $150. I was thinking about re-buying the Electribe ES1 or whatever but thought maybe yall would know something better. My only interest is in looping sounds from a line-in jack - no beats required. Any ideas?

i'm pretty happy with the roland sp-404sx, it's been very intuitive so far. i know it's supposed to be able to do what you want, but i haven't actually used it to sample yet (i'm just loading wav files from the computer to the sd card so i can trigger samples live).

nine years pass...

dumb sampler terminology question: is there a default term for a setting that indicates that if you play a sample and then start it again while the first iteration is still playing, whether it ends the first iteration or doubles over it?

"Choke"? ie Pad 1 stops playing if Pad 3 is hit (on an MPC or similar device), I think most samplers like that auto-choke per pad because they're monophonic

I don't know about self-choking but this describes it for separate pads
