Sansa SlotMusic Player Review


SanDisk's Sansa slotMusic makes a fine budget MP3 player for those who don't want to put much effort into their music.

SanDisk Sansa TakeTV review


Editors' Note: As of spring 2008, the Fanfare video service has been shuttered , and the TakeTV hardware will no longer be sold.

Enables easy viewing of DivX, Xvid, and MPEG4 videos on your TV; setup and operation couldn't be simpler; premium content available via Fanfare online service; flexible aspect ratio control; doubles as a standard flash drive; modest price tag.

Compatibility limited to only three video file formats; no support for photos or music; remote design is somewhat awkward; Fanfare Web site currently has very limited content options, and--for now, at least--it's not viewable on other devices, such as...

The SanDisk Sansa TakeTV delivers plug-and-play simplicity for watching downloaded videos on your TV.

SanDisk Sansa e260


Removable battery. Sturdy shell. Very good audio quality. Easy to use. Expandable storage. Extensive feature set. Strong FM tuner.

Playlisting features aren't great. Buttons are slightly difficult to press. No lossless support. Loading music in USB mode causes erratic behavior. Requires separate apps for loading music and visual media.

The e260 has an excellent combination of features, style, ease of use, and price, but the overall user experience still isn't quite as smooth as that of the iPod nano.

SanDisk Sansa e200R review


The Sansa e200 series has made huge waves in 2006. Launched as the world's highest-capacity flash player at 6GB, the feature-filled e200 later soundly beat Apple to the 8GB milestone . Now a special version of SanDisk's flagship player, the Sansa e200R...

The compact SanDisk Sansa e200R Rhapsody can play back music, video, and photo files and is available in capacities of up to 8GB; works well with Rhapsody; includes dual Rhapsody and PlaysForSure mode; includes an FM tuner, a voice recorder, and...

The SanDisk Sansa e200R Rhapsody's tactile scrollwheel is both a blessing and a burden; must convert photo and video files using bundled Sansa software; occasional low-level system noise underneath audio; proprietary USB dock connector; no AC adapter...

Thanks to an improved feature set and GUI, the Rhapsody version of the flagship Sansa player is better than the original.

SanDisk Sansa e200 series (mp3 players) review:


SanDisk's impressive Sansa e200 series

The SanDisk Sansa e200 series combines copious features such as subscription compatibility, an FM tuner/recorder, voice recording, and photo and video playback into a compact and durable device. We like the tactile navigation wheel, as well as the...

No AC adapter in package; the buttons surrounding the SanDisk Sansa e200's scrollwheel can be difficult to press; the mechanical scrollwheel can tire out some thumbs; photos and video must go through conversion with bundled software; the expansion slot...

The SanDisk Sansa e200 series offers a boatload of features for a reasonable price, in a package that is much nicer than that of past SanDisk models. For those looking for a high-capacity, compact, skip-free MP3/WMA player, start with the e200 series.

SanDisk Sansa e270 MP3 player review


At the end of the day, it's pretty clear that there isn't much that the Sansa e200 series can't do - Voice recording, music, pictures and movies are all within its remit, and an FM receiver smuggled away inside the unit too (albeit sadly disabled due...

SanDisk Sansa e260 review (e200 series)


This review was updated 6/22/06. See the comments section on the Conclusion page for the changelog. Introduction SanDisk quietly entered the digital audio scene last winter with their affordable �Digital Audio Player� line. Two more dirt cheap,...

With the Sansa e200 series SanDisk has created their most compelling MP3 player yet. It lives up to the hype in that it is easy to use, well-designed, and feature-filled, something few players on the market can accurately claim. It's not quite a...
