Mini-Review: SanDisk Digital Audio Player

 

Along with my numerous mobile devices, we have an iPod and an iPod mini in our household of 5 people. I enjoy running, especially as I start to get back in shape for summer 7s rugby again this year, but my Pocket PC is too big and expensive to

SanDisk Digital Audio Player 512MB review

 

If any company is going to compete on price against Apple's new flash memory music player, it's SanDisk. The company invented flash memory and continues to produce ingenious and ever smaller storage cards that have all but replaced film in cameras....

Price, drag and drop music onto your player

Lacks character, uses AAA battery

A very good value player that is easy to manage

This is a winner

 

I added this comment because I love this player. I came back to buy another one for my wife.I listen to the radio on it from time to time, and lots of music and audiobooks. It supports the protected WMA files and I use those alot. Buy one you'll love it.

I have trained and ran several marathons and shorter races with this little jem playing the whole way. The arm band works great and makes the player easily used and seen. I get the thing so sweaty and stinky from use that I am constantly washing it but...

Acts funny when changing files if battery is low. No big deal. Change battery and works perfect again

Not for the technically challenged

 

This player is the best value one can find for a 1 GB device. Sandisk is a name that I have confidence in. I noticed that some people did not receive the accessories; however, mine came with all of them. Maybe the folks at Newegg actually read these...

There are certainly more pros than cons with this little gem ; It has excellent sound ; Outstanding value ; Small and light ; and ; Although "recertified" -- the player looks brand new. My guess is that it was returned because someone had difficulty...

Somewhat confusing controls until one becomes familiar with the player ; Backlight is really cool looking but not necessary during the daytime. Using the backlight makes the battery drain much faster. Rechargeable batteries were one solution to power...

YA CAN"T BEAT IT!!!!

 

I had to send the first one back because it only played on one channel, unless you pushed the plug to the side. No one is perfect but when I got the replacement it was as good if not better than my expectations. I bought a total of 4 of the 256 MB...

For the price, it works!!! It works GREAT! (after I sent the first one back for being DOA)

first on was DOA but I returned it and Newegg made it right

Works Great - Including Audio Books

 

This thing is a nice little package, only a little bigger than a USB keychain. It works for audio books contrary to some reviews here (you have to press and hold the FF/RW button to seek within a track, just like a CD player). With the right...

Small size ; Good audio quality (with the right headphones)

Slow transfer speed if you only have USB 1.1 (older computers) ; Controls are a little wacky but you'll figure them out after playing around

SanDisk Blue 512MB MP3 Player SDMX1-512-A18

Great product

 

I bought this product about a year ago and love it. There are plenty of on screen features and it is about the size of an ipod shuffle for about half the cost.

Best Bargain MP3 Player

 

For the price and features (Voice Recorder, Radio player, and doubles as a data storage device) of this bad boy its one of the best MP3 players out there... In my opinion, 256MB is enough space for me since I would really listen to 100+ songs at one...
