  • Pretty Sweet :] :]

    By AnnyJ  Dec 1, 2008

    This is a pretty good mp3 player. It has a FM radio built in, unlike the Ipod. There aren't that many colors that you can choose from (that I could find). Anyways I thought it was pretty good for the price that its at. :] This makes a great Christmas... gift! Read more Less

  • Awesome MP3 Player

    By ~*~Dani~*~  Jul 16, 2007

    I bought one of these about 3 months ago. I was looking locally and having a hard time finding an mp3 player that wasn't going to cost a fortune. I love how long the battery life is on this and how fast it recharges either from your computer or car ...charger. This mp3 player is also very easy to use and navigate around. One great feature is having FM Radio built into this. You can save your fav stations and go to them when you want a break from your music. Tech support is also very helpful if you happen to think you messed up your player, they can fix you up in a few mins of your time. Overall if your looking for a good mp3 player thats going to stand the test of time, I'd get one of these. Read more Less

  • AWSOME!!!!!!!

    By Yahoo! Shopping User  Nov 25, 2007

    I love this mp3 it's so cool. It is way better than the nano because the scroller doesn't wear out as easily. I would highly reccomend it. It never froze on me or did anything bad and i've had it for a year and a half. Overall great, BUY IT!!!!

  • Fantastic!

    By Block  Oct 9, 2008

    THIS MEDIA PLAYER IS GREAT. The battery life is fantastic. Although you can't play movies, the video quality isn't so great. And you get no playback after a video. The great thing is, is the voice recorder and the FM tuner. If you were to have/get a ...FM tuner and a Voice Recorder for a iPod, you would have to spend an extra $100 for it. This neet little gadget is soo great. I noticed that the back is aluminum or steel, but the face is plastic. Thats the major problem. It could use a aluminum face and a glass display for less scratches. But overall, it a VERY nice deal for a 8Gig. Read more Less

  • sansa 8 gb

    By Adam  Jan 29, 2008

    The required software does not come with the refurbished models! If you buy a refurb, you should know: The word REFURB is cast in metal on the back cover plate. You will have to download and print your owner's manual. It has some good instructions ...you have to have. You have to have Windows Media Player 11 to operate. You have to download Arcsoft Media Converter for Sansa. -to load pics or video to your sansa. I still can't rip a cd to my device. but it may be a problem with my pc settings. It is very picky about audio file formats, though. mp3's are fine, any other file format may not work. The player itself works really well though. I bought 2 of them, one for my fiance. Battery life is really good so far. The fm radio feature is really cool and works well. more features and lower price than Ipod nano, but without the support and itunes. (itunes won't work with sansa) Read more Less

  • SanDisk Sansa e280 (8GB)

    CNET

    The SanDisk Sansa e200 series combines copious features such as subscription compatibility, an FM tuner/recorder, voice recording, and photo and video playback into a compact and durable device. We like the tactile navigation wheel, as well as the well-designed software interface. The user-removable battery and the Micro SD slot are nice touches, and the device has decent sound quality, processor performance, and battery life. Finally, the Sansa e200 series has a maximum base capacity of 8GB, and it offers a competitive price in the high-stakes world of high-capacity flash players. Read more
