SanDisk Sansa c240 1GB, pink


SanDisk knows how to produce affordable MP3 players, which is probably why value-conscious music lovers have made Sansa the second most-popular device in the U.S. market (behind the Apple iPod). The company's latest release is the Sansa c200 series,...

The SanDisk Sansa c200 series player is an exceptional value, considering its assortment of features. It comes with a FM radio, a voice recorder, photo viewer, a built-in MicroSD slot for adding memory, and even a user-replaceable, rechargeable...

The menu interface is boring and screen quality subpar. Sound quality is far from impressive; there's no video support. The player uses a proprietary USB port. And, there's no 4GB version.

Thanks to its exceptional value and user-friendly features, the SanDisk Sansa c200 is an acceptable choice for youngsters and first-timers--but more sophisticated users would be better off shelling out a bit more for a better player.

Great buy, Works as expected


Works well. No problems. Sometimes doesn't sync all the way with Windows Media PLayer, but I think it is a Microsoft problem. Drag and drop works flawlessly. I like that it shows art on on podcasts.

Other than the headphones


I bought two of these, one for myself and one for a relative. I understand the MP3 player is "Refurbished" but the headphones that came with it are crap. I think I would have been happier if it was sent without headphones all together. I used a pair of...

Consumer review by: nickolas (



The player is constantly freezing and requires holding the power button until it turns off. After a couple of days of using the player, it suddenly lost all my music. The drive, however, said it was still full and I couldn't re-add songs. No files...


Proprietary USB cable, freezes, loses data, controls are awkwardly placed

Rockbox can be installed on this player


I love the open source rockbox MP3 player firmware available from It can be installed on this player but it was not straightforward. The player as supplied does NOT support MSC mode (i.e. an external drive) which is required to install...
