SanDisk Sansa c250 (2GB)

 

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.

Sansa C250 MP3 Player Review

 

The weather is starting to look like Spring, the skies are blue, air is crisp and the snow is gone. Alas, it is time to hop on your Crotch Rocket and actually get some physical activity for a change after being inside all winter. You decide to go for a...

Demo songs sounded great

No drivers ; Doesn't work, except for demo songs ; Expensive

So where does this product stand, you ask? Well, it works great for the five demo songs on it, but it's a little overpriced at $100 for demo songs and the Media Converter Software. As for as I am concerned, Sandisk should be ashamed of themselves,...

"Terrible - NO TECH SUPPORT as it's a 'legacy' item."

 

Stay away from this unit unless you like email support. Check the company's website BEFORE buying one of their still-for-sale 'legacy' items for a list of stuff they make and sell but dont want to properly support via phone or live chat.

well i liked wasting my time on the 'live chat' being told the item was not eligible for discussion as it was a 'legacy' item.i loved wasting more time filling out forms for tech support email......

unit never worked right from the get-go. sansa still sells this crap ,yet when you need support or live chat they tell you it's email support only as it's a 'legacy' item.How is that when it's for sale, new, today? Can you say 'rip-off artist?

"Easy to use, lots of features, GREAT DEAL!!"

 

I got this for Xmas in 2007, but didn't use it because I didn't listen to music that much at the time. I just started using it again and it still works well and sounds good. I expected the battery to be shot because I hadn't used it for a long time but...

- Simple to put music on

- There's a lot of clicking involved to navigate the menus.

Simple to put music on ; Size is good ; Music quality is fine ; 35 price tag ; preset equalizers by genre and a customizable eq

There's a lot of clicking involved to navigate the menus ; Can't set up multiple playlists on it

"nasty audio jack"

 

I wouldn't buy it again. Even though we have been able to replace it because of the defect, it is a hassle to keep going through this again and again. Plus having to wait for shipping and handling.

inexpensive workable mp3 for young teenagers

the audio jack wears out within months...we've had to replace it within the warranty period twice...! The good news is that they will replace it if it wears out within the warranty period...even the replacement one!
