SanDisk Sansa Fuze+


Smaller and cheaper than any smartphone, but still capable of playing pint-sized video, the Fuze+ media player competes for the same one-size-fits-all sweet spot held by the firmly entrenched iPod Nano. While it neglects Apple's last-generation upgrade...

Sleek, lightweight design ; Colorful, modern interface ; Much cheaper than a comparable iPod Nano ; 2.4-inch LCD screen ; Expandable with microSD cards

Clumsy touch controls ; Screen difficult to watch for long periods

Sansa’s Fuze+ introduces a large 2.4-inch screen, touch controls, and capacity up to 16GB, all while costing less than the iPod Nano.

SanDisk Sansa Fuze+ review


SanDisk's original Sansa Fuze may have had a solid run -- it's been a particular favorite among those looking for a good, inexpensive player that doesn't

Inexpensive ; Impressive range of features ; microSD card slot

Sluggish interface ; Touch panel causes problems ; Feels a little cheap

The Sansa Fuze+ is inexpensive and feature-packed, but hampered by slow performance and a finicky touchscreen that will have you wishing for some actual buttons.

SanDisk Sansa Fuze+ MP3 review: SanDisk Sansa Fuze+ MP3


iPods aren't for everybody. The ones with all the cool features will set you back at least $150, and the ones you can afford don't do much. If you want to spend less than $100 for a portable media player that can handle music, photos, videos, FM radio,...

The Sansa Fuze+ comes in a variety of colors and capacities, at superaffordable prices. Features such as video playback, AAC compatibility, FM radio, photos, podcasts, Rhapsody support, voice recording, and Mac compatibility make it an easy iPod...

The new touch-pad navigation is sluggish; screen resolution isn't great; audio quality is just average; and the all-plastic design feels cheap.

You can find smaller or cheaper MP3 players, but you won't find a better value than the Sansa Fuze+ in terms of dollars per features.

SanDisk Sansa Fuze+


Apple has enjoyed an undeniable stranglehold over the $100+ portable media player market for years now—it's pretty much been iPods and also-rans. The budget realm, however, has never been Apple's strong suit, and SanDisk and other manufacturers make...

Very reasonable price for capacity, performance. User interface features good-looking animated graphics. FM radio recording and voice recording. MicroSD slot for swappable content

Slow reaction time from touch pad. Occasionally, controls don't respond to touch. Navigation can be tedious

If you live outside the iTunes ecosystem, the Sansa Fuze+ offers better features than either the Apple iPod nano or the iPod shuffle and is priced to compete with both players.

Sandisk Sansa Fuze+ Review


When it was time for SanDisk to update the Fuze, they dubbed it the Fuze+ rather than make it a completely new player- just as they did with the Sansa Clip+. While the Clip+ truly was a minor (but awesome) update though, you can stare at the Fuze and...

The Fuze+ is not an easy player to judge objectively. On one hand, the design is good, possible storage capacity is excellent, menus are very nice looking and there are plenty of features for such a player. On the other hand. the controls are so beyond...

SanDisk Sansa Fuze+ MP3 Player Review


An affordable MP3 player that comes bundled with loads of features.

Loads of features, capacitative touch controls, great battery life, affordable price tag

Bundled earphones, Sensitive touch pad can leave you pressing keys unintentionally

The device also comes bundled with a bunch of Tiesto songs and videos. Personally, I’m not a fan of Tiesto but if you like his music, you’ve got an added incentive to buy this MP3 player.

Sansa Fuze+


This MP4 player is ideal for exercising or traveling because of its portable, lightweight design. Although the SanDisk Sansa Fuze+ is a smaller player, we are still confident you will be satisfied with its excellent audio and video capabilities.

It is light and easy to carry with you wherever you go

The touchscreen is sometimes difficult to use

If you want a light player to exercise with, but still want video capability, choose the Sansa Fuse+.
