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 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...

SanDisk Sansa e270 6GB MP3 Player


Apple-Free MP3

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...

SanDisk - Sansa e270


I made myself a promise before starting to write this review not to mention the best known, flash-based, multi-gigabyte portable music player in the world. You know the one I mean. The Sansa e200 series comes ...

This is a very nice player indeed. Importantly it ticks the right boxes in having an intuitive control system, good menu structure and long battery life. The only thing missing is an FM radio, and irritatingly this is present in the US versions of the...

Using the device can be confusing at first.
