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.

Both models in the c100 series look identical, measure 3.1 by 1.4 by 0.9 inches, and weigh 1.6 ounces. Although aimed at the budget crowd, the SanDisk Sansa c100 offers a 1.25-inch-diagonal, 65,000-color screen with support for JPEG photos and album...

The affordable SanDisk Sansa c100 series boasts a simple and effective control interface; a small but handy color LCD that displays photos and album art; extra features such as an FM tuner, voice recording, and photo support; and compatibility with...

The SanDisk Sansa c100 series utilizes a proprietary USB cable and has poor battery life for a AAA unit. It also offers poor voice and FM recordings, and you can hear a tiny click when you start a track.

The SanDisk Sansa c100 series gives you a decent set of features for a decent price, but don't expect great battery life.

The SanDisk Sansa c150 is a small music player aimed at the budget market. With 2GB of storage, a colour screen and support for viewing photos, it off...

Colour screen, 2GB storage

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

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

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

The SanDisk Sansa c100 series gives you a decent set of features for a decent price, but don't expect great battery life

Simple and effective control interface ; Small but handy colour LCD that displays photos and album art ; FM tuner, voice recording and photo support ; Compatibility with Audible and WMA subscription services

Proprietary USB cable ; Poor battery life for a AAA unit ; Poor voice and FM recordings ; You can hear a tiny click when you start a track

Battery life is rated for 15 hours -- not bad for a rechargeable player such as the iPod nano but painful for a AAA-powered device such as the c100. We expect at least 20 hours from nonrechargeable batteries -- you'll be replacing them all the time if...

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 --...

It was perfect

 

I got this as a refurb for around $20, now those refurbs cost more as this model is no longer made. I used it at work and it's one of the better mp3 players I've had. The battery life was easily in the 12 hour range, perfect for even a 10 hour work...

Decent battery life, nice organization of music lists

Rather thick in your pocket
