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...

Click wheel problems and other comments

 

I have had the Sansa e280 for about two years, I liked it at first but now it's nothing but a hassle. The mechanical click wheel does NOT hold up--I am having trouble navigating the menus (onscreen) with the wheel. They are super-sensitive now, for...

High capacity, easy to connect (USB), menu button, sound

Mechanical click wheel fails after time (1-2 years), REC (record) button on side of unit is too easy to engage accidentally

It went through my washing machine and still works!

 

I think I paid 49.00 for this player refurbished and couldn't be happier...especially after the washer incident...who would have thought it!

yep, I pulled it out of my gym bag, wrapped in my towel and straight into the washer...later in the day, I found it. Opened it up, doused it with electronic cleaner..and bingo..still kickin! A+ in my book

Random shuffle seems to not be so random but still pretty good. I find that if I add and or delete a song from the player, it 'restarts' the database and I get a whole new randomization

A great little player

 

I got mine two years ago and it still works great and does what I want it to. It is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. The screen is good quality and bright. As long as you just have pictures and music, it has plenty of space. The memory goes...

thin sleek device that does what you want. Well built

could have more memory
