SanDisk Sansa Connect 4GB


Microsoft's idea of letting people share their favorite songs using a wireless connection was as botched in execution as it was brilliant in conception. SanDisk's Sansa Connect makes much more sense, although it requires users who want to share to...

Wireless networking, Internet radio, great user interface

Limited codec support, no support for lossless formats

Although the Sansa Connect sounds very good, we do wish SanDisk hadn’t limited the player to just MP3, WMA, and secure WMA audio formats at maximum bitrates of 320Kb/s VBR. We find ourselves increasingly enamored with the pristine quality of losslessly...

SanDisk Sansa Connect (4GB)


SanDisk made some waves earlier this year when it released the Sansa Connect WiFi enabled MP3 player. It's one of the first MP3 players with real functional WiFi connectivity that enables users to stream and/or download music from a predominant service...

Good sound; WiFi capable; expandable microSD card slot; built-in speaker

No Mac support; high price point

The Sansa Connect is a great MP3 player, especially for folks looking for a subscription-based, iTunes-free experience.

SanDisk Sansa Express (2GB)


Ever since Apple abandoned the design feature with the release of the second-generation iPod Shuffle, MP3 players with built-in USB seem to have gone out of fashion. It's a bit of a shame, as this type of device is quite handy for some users. So it's...

The SanDisk Sansa Express features a handy plug-and-play design; it's inexpensive; it offers several desirable extras such as an FM tuner, support for protected WMAs, and a microSD expansion slot

The screen of the Sansa Express is tiny and it's capable of displaying only two colors, so there's no album art or photo support

The SanDisk Sansa Express is a solid choice for those who need an ultraconvenient MP3 player with a decent smattering of features.

SanDisk Sansa Connect MP3 Player


Announced at CES earlier this year, SanDisk's Wi-Fi-equipped MP3 player has arrived, and I've been playing around with it for a while now. The first thing that struck me about this 4GB player is that its Wi-Fi capabilities are actually useful. The...

Downloads songs over Wi-Fi ; Nice color screen

Slightly sluggish interface ; Expensive

Is the wireless worth it? At $249 for a 4GB player, the Sansa Connect isn't cheap. But with a MicroSD slot included for expansion, and the ability to pull down songs from any location that has an open access point, the device's lack of storage isn't a...

SanDisk Sansa Connect


Back in January, SanDisk announced the Sansa Connect, a slick-looking flash MP3 player capable of hopping on open Wi-Fi networks and sharing songs with any other Connects anywhere. The device was sweet enough to garner a Best of CES award in the MP3...

The SanDisk Sansa Connect has a high-quality design, a lovely, user-friendly interface, and good audio quality; it offers desirable features such as a MicroSD card expansion slot and a built-in external speaker for sharing tunes. The Connect is also...

The Connect cannot communicate wirelessly with your PC; it also can't get past certain open Wi-Fi networks' "Terms and conditions" pages (yet), and a few private networks may cause issues. The observed Wi-Fi battery life is not impressive

The Sansa Connect is a nicely designed player with desirable features and advanced wireless technology, making it a great choice for early adopters and Yahoo Music Unlimited subscribers. With a bit of tweaking to the integrated Wi-Fi, this device could...

Downloads songs over Wi-Fi, Nice color screen

Slightly sluggish interface, Expensive

SanDisk's networked wonder does a fine job of wedding Wi-Fi capabilities to a solid MP3 player.

SanDisk Sansa Connect


SanDisk, Yahoo, and Zing team up to deliver a compelling Wi-Fi-enabled digital audio player.

Built-in Wi-Fi ; Excellent integration with Yahoo Music and LAUNCHcast Radio ; Intuitive interface and controls ; microSD expansion ; Good accessory bundle

Subpar battery life ; Short Wi-Fi range ; Audible system noise with MP3s

Sansa Express


There's not a whole lot to say about the Sansa Express, and that's the point. People shopping for cheap portable media players often default to the Apple iPod shuffle just because they've seen it in ads and, hey, it works with iTunes. SanDisk throws a...

Tiny and lightweight. Simple, attractive design. Bright screen. FM radio. FM and voice recorder. Super cheap

Lousy earbuds. Battery life is so-so. No power adapter

SanDisk Extreme Cruzer Contour


The Sandisk Extreme Cruzer Contour boasts killer looks but does it offer performance to match?

A stylish drive that offers nifty extras. If you're after outright performance though, Kingston's HyperX USB stick is the better buy.
