SanDisk Sansa c140 (1GB)

 

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.

SanDisk Sansa e140 (1GB)

 

At 2.75 by 2.0 by 0.5 inches, the SanDisk Sansa e100 may not be the tiniest flash-based player (even some 5GB players are smaller), but it's very lightweight at 1.6 ounces with its single AAA battery. Despite the e100's durability, its feathery weight...

Lightweight; supports DRM-protected WMA and Audible files; built-in FM tuner and stopwatch; decent navigational menus; expansion slot; attractive street prices.

Poor scrollwheel (for navigation and volume control); mediocre sound quality; no playlist support.

The SanDisk Sansa series will be the pick for those looking for an affordable WMA-friendly player packed with more features than the Apple iPod Shuffle, but if you want top-notch sound quality, stick with the latter.

SanDisk Sansa e140 MP3 Player

 

Oh, no, not yet another mp3 player review! I have read tons of them already. Why should I read this one? Well, for the same reason I wrote it, I hope--because with its SD slot and FM tuner the SanDisk Sansa e140 not only looks interesting it brings...

FM radio tuner ; SD expansion slot ; Decent battery life ; Easy to read LCD ; Basic features easy to use

Tiny USB cable ; SD card size limited to 2GB

If you don't yet own or are just looking to replace an aging .MP3 player you can't go wrong with the SanDisk Sansa e140 MP3 Player. I really have to nit pick to find much wrong with this package. For instance, the interface--while for the most part...

This lightweight unit has a couple of good features, but is plagued by multiple problems, including a poorly implemented scroll wheel, surprisingly poor sound quality and lack of playlist support.

SanDisk Sansa e140 MP3 player review

 

Here at Gizmogirl, SanDisk is the logical company to buy an mp3 player from. It is the Tupperware of the digital world, with a huge range of tiny containers for storing your digital junk. The company's latest storage device is an mp3 player with some...

Unlimited storage, excellent earphones

If you are not buying Apple, then this is a very good Windows friendly player

You get comfortable earbuds and an armband in the package, along with a USB cable and an AAA battery. The battery life is decent at 17.6 hours per AAA cell, compared to the company's rating of 17 hours. Transfer times over USB 2.0 were below average at...

SanDisk Sansa e140 (1GB)

 

Although it's an affordable flash player with a decent smattering of features, the e100 series won't win any awards for sound quality.

Lightweight ; Supports DRM-protected WMA and Audible files ; Built-in FM tuner and stopwatch ; Decent navigational menus ; Expansion slot

Poor scrollwheel (for navigation and volume control) ; Mediocre sound quality ; No playlist support

Sound quality is not impressive at all, despite the five EQs and the SRS Wow effects. Our test MP3s (which include Ikara Colt's "Don't They Know" and Bjork's "Headphones") sounded a bit dull, with noticeable background hiss. Also, the player couldn't...

Product Specifications

SanDisk Sansa e100 series of small, highly portable digital music players use embedded flash memory to store many hours of digital music. For an enjoyable music-listening experience, the new music players feature high-fidelity sound, a sophisticated yet easy-to-use song navigation and sorting system and a unique design that continues SanDisk's tradition of distinctive styling. The SanDisk Sansa players can store hundreds of songs and play up to 17 continuous hours on a single AAA battery. The new players feature an SD card slot to conveniently add more storage capacity, which can be significant since SanDisk and other companies have recently announced SD cards up to 2GB in capacity. The new players are designed to work seamlessly with a wide range of popular music formats such as MP3 and Windows Media Audio (WMA) in both unprotected and protected files (such as those WMA files purchased from music service provider sites). The SanDisk Sansa music players include stereo headphones, carrying case with armband, USB 2.0 cable, AAA Battery and Install CD with value-added software. For added flexibility, they can be used as a USB storage device. Furthermore, the new industrial design was created with future accessory options in mind.
