SanDisk Sansa c240 ( 1GB, black)

 

Editors' note : The rating of this review has been updated to reflect the inclusion of album art support, a feature previously thought to be absent from this player.

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 For the Month Before the Jack Broke"

 

I was totally happy until the headphone jack inside player got loose after a month of moderate gym use, so now I can't hear anything, except blips when I wiggle my headphones around. Not worth it.

Decent sound quality, small and simple, cute intro and goodbye scene

Headphone jack broke

Excellent Player with RockBox installed!

 

I bought myself one of these and installed RockBox to use in place of the built-in firmware. I can still boot to the original firmware, but I never do because RockBox provides so many features, including support of high capacity micro-SD cards. With...
