SanDisk Sansa c150

 

Player Type: Flash MP3 Player, Radio: Yes, Recording, Voice: Yes, Recording, Line In: No, Audio Battery Life: 900 m...

Very competitively priced. Compatible with subscription services and Audible. Has a custom five-band EQ. Very lightweight. Works with WMP or drag and drop.

FM tuner and Audible playback are glitchy. Menu navigation is sometimes awkward. Controls feel cheap and are unresponsive. Ho-hum battery life. Screen looks terrible. Weak bass. Poor-quality recording features.

The SanDisk Sansa c150 is a cheap player in every way, but it has some redeeming qualities.

Sansa C150 2gb Mp3 Player - Black

 

SanDisk's stylish Sansa c150 ($149 as of 4/13/06) is distinguished by its compact, rectangular size. It's perfect for someone who wants to carry a selection of songs on the go, but not their entire archive, since the player has a midrange capacity of...

Inexpensive Very good audio quality

Button use is somewhat clunky Photos require conversion with software

Though I loved this unit's ultraportability and flexibility, I have a couple of gripes (bigger ones than the sloppy Media Converter interface). My biggest is that this player requires a proprietary USB cable instead of a standard mini-USB connector....

Inexpensive ; Very good audio quality

Button use is somewhat clunky ; Photos require conversion with software

Button use and menus are a bit clunky on the inexpensive c150. Photos require software conversion. Uses one AAA battery.

Although this is a small and cheap player, SanDisk has sacrificed advanced customization options to compete at this price.

Colour screen, 2GB storage

Non-standard USB connection, screen too small, lack of customization options

The Sansa c150 is small, simple and has a decent colour screen for photo viewing. It takes AAA batteries but is so cheap you won't be letting that bother you

It feels like a toy and you’ll need to buy batteries but it's still cheap and useable

SanDisk Sansa c150 (2GB)

 

The c150 is SanDisk's latest attempt to bust open the flash-based MP3 player market.

Good list of features ; Colour screen ; Compact and lightweight ; Easy to use

Only so-so sound quality ; Low battery life -- you'll need plenty of AAAs in reserve ; FM recording quality poor

FM recording quality, however, is rather poor. Recordings made are played back in mono, which is a bit of a shock to the ears after listening to decent stereo sound when it comes to the radio or music files. Voice recordings are also fairly average --...

These are pretty cheap... you get what you pay for. The screen locked on a song when the battery got low. Replacing the battery didn't help... and there is not reset available when that happens. I can't get any of the controls to respond.

works ok... looks good

Lasted about 2 months... then it died on me

Just yesterday I bought it from Circuit City. Very easy to load and operate (just drag drop your files..and ready to go)I compared sound quality with Ipod shuffle..and result was not great. Found build in FM tuner very useful...but it gives static for...

Easy interfaces, drag drop your music files, FM tuner

Not a great sound quality, smaller display (not at all worth to see photos), saggy FM tuner

The sound quality is good, especially with the custom EQ. The FM radio has a buzzing sound when the battery is new and the backlight goes off. After the battery gets to about half power, the buzzing goes away? Extremely annoying! I contacted...
