SanDisk Sansa e270R Rhapsody (6GB)


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's Sansa e270 gets nude


Loyal Engadget reader turned gadget pornographer Francis noticed how much we cared for Sandisk's new Sansa e200 series MP3 players, so he cracked his open and sent us pictures of the silicon and flash memory goodness that spilled forth from within....

SanDisk Sansa e270 (6GB)


Editors' note: 10/10/06 CNET has adjusted the score of the Sansa e200 series from 8.3 to 8.0 in light of the arrival of the Sansa e200R Rhapsody, which scores slightly higher (8.3) than the e200.

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


There are two types of people when it comes to MP3 player choices, iPod users, and the rest. In the past Apple has dominated the MP3 player market, but there are now a lot of alternatives on the market.

More features than iPod Nano ; Competitively Priced ; Easy to Use ; Expandable (Micro SD slot) ; Great Battery Life

Media Conversion Software has very limited Conversion Options

During this entire review, I tried as hard as possible to not constantly compare this unit to the iPod Nano, however, with the iPod being very popular, it was hard not to. The Sansa e270 is definitely aimed at the same market as the Nano, it's a nice...

SanDisk Sansa e270 MP3 player review


I'm going to start this review with a solemn promise - From this point onwards, I will make no direct reference to the iPod.  We all know that Apple's seminal portable media players are very much the 800 pound gorilla in the market and that, between...

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 to EU taxes on such devices).  More importantly though, it does a pretty good job of all of them...

SanDisk Sansa e270 MP3 player review


There is no denying that there are a lot of MP3 players on the market at the moment. Players range from under ?20 to several hundred pounds and capacities of 128mb to over 100gb. SanDisk is a name that most people will recognise and...

Voice recording quality was fine for voice memos and quick notes but at 32kbps using the WAV format this no DAT machine.

Review: SanDisk Sansa e270


Could this be an end to iPod's rule?

Wide range of features, surprisingly good video abilities, cheap, rugged

Awful scroll wheel, confusing menu navigation, Transflash expansion port seems pointless

SanDisk has really pulled out all the stops with the Sansa e200 series and there are few other players offering so much for such a reasonable outlay. So if you don't want to follow the iPod crowd or just prefer the various iTunes alternatives, then...
