"Not again!"on by dj12563
Pros This player worked very well for about 7 months. Easy to use controls and loud!
Cons Numerous freezes. 2 days ago in the middle of a song, PFFFFTTT!!!, dead. Cannot get it to power on at all. Now I have nothing. It's going back to Costco this weekend.
Summary As stated in the cons. This is the second SanDisk MP3 I have owned that has been vey poor. I would still be using my Creative Labs Zen if the screen hadn't died. That player lasted well over 2 years. No more SanDisk for me!
Pros owned this product for 2 monhs, was very pleased, good sound, easy to use,and don't need hi speed inet connection.
Cons unit 2 months old, screen gone "blackinkspot". I was holding it when I felt it crack. The unit kept playing and I didn't notice anything untoward, inkspot appeared the following day. Contacted sandisk who are refusing to offer a replacement.
Summary My one experience of sandisk cutstomer service has so far been appalling, I shall be taking this further. Call centre in India for the uk,is less than helpful. Seems like sandisk are reluctant to honour warranty.
Pros cheap for 8 gig
Cons The screen broke after 1 year. The on/off switch is real hard to use. You need a big fingernail to use it.
Summary Buy another player which will won't break after 1 year
Pros Nothing. This is my second defective 8 gb Sandisk player.
Cons Known issue: defective internal screens go "black inkspot", see the Sandisk user forum. I had this 2 months, it was mailed to me on 10/31/08 by Sandisk as a replacement for another defective Sandisk 8 gb player, so Sandisk refuses to replace this.
Summary I hate this company - I have wasted hours and hours of my life by purchasing 2 defective 8 gb players in a row. Sandisk knows that they are making Sansa Fuzes with defective LCD screens, yet they will not replace it - because it already was a replacement for another defective player. Talk about a Catch 22 - no wonder why the economy tanked, people are tired of buying defective JUNK from companies llke Sandisk!
Pros I bought this for my wife who never downloaded MP3 and for her to jump in with both feet and go through the different menus was real easy for her. Easy to read, easy to load and easy to browse the menus
Cons We bought the carrying case which straps to your arm and getting to the power button is a little hard to turn it on and off. Other than that no issues
Summary Over all for the money and ease of operation this was a no brainer. A number of people here in my office have sansa MP3 player and they didnt have any issues with there units..john
