"Great value for money!!"3.5 starson by naxxramaz
Pros: Small, cheap, very good sound quality, expandable memory and with some of the cheapest memory cards, radio and video.
Cons: Not really well built, bad interface, AWFUL video possibilities, no pc software, no usb.
Summary: When I first read the specifications of this mp3 player in the site of sandisk I thought: the best thing ever! And because I'm sad I didn't have money to buy a zen here I go:
1st of all, the battery capacity it is NOT 24 hours of music, it's around 20-21.
2nd NO USB? O - M -G
3rd the buttons make an annoying click!!!
4th about the scroll thing...it is scaled (like a mouse) and not free to spin (like a logitech with micro gear) and you can't even change its sensitivity
5th the software is pretty bad, it's not friendly and there aren't any "fun" things, not even a changeable background
6th compared zen the ways of reproduction are not many (repeat, repeat one, only one, all once etc.)
7th and last but less least, the video thing SUCKS! only mpeg4? give me a damn break! and the sansa media converter sucks (it doesn't recognise some formats like flv)..
Now about the good things.
1st Pretty good sound...
2nd nice headphones
3rd the microsdhc slot rocks ;)
4th it has radio (iPods don't)
5th no computer software needed (although I'd like one)
6th many colours available and it's pretty beautiful for a pretty low price.
Actually the best thing you can't buy with 79$
