SanDisk Sansa m230 (512MB)

 

At 3.1 by 1.7 by 1 inches, the SanDisk Sansa m200 isn't the sleekest flash player around, but it's feathery light at 1.3 ounces with a AAA battery installed. Though the buttons are made of cheap-looking plastic, and the body feels flimsy, the overall...

Available in up to 4GB capacity; solid value; includes FM tuner and voice recorder; compatible with WMA DRM 10 (Janus) and Audible files; decent controllers; on-the-go playlists.

Bulky (but lightweight); no line-in recording; poorly backlit display; only one quality option for voice recording.

With its many features as well as its compatibility with audiobooks and subscription-based music, the SanDisk Sansa m200 series is an overall great value.

Came up with a huge error and it's bad anyway.

 

Good if you want to buy a new Mp3 player evry 2 years.

Affordable and easy to use with an O.K. battery life

After a few years it came up with a message saying "Not Enough Space for Music DB. Please free 8mb" Nothing fixed it. It's overall a low quality Mp3 player

A very good SanDisk mp3 Player! NO APPLE YES SANDISK!

 

When I received and iPod Nano on my birthday, I thought Apple equals good quality, but I was wrong. My father traveled to Miami two years ago and bought this SanDisk for me. I'm still thanking him for this, 'cause I have never had a better MP3 Player....

The same Apple's songs searcher, 5-bands Custom Equalizer, which improves its sound a LOT, really clean sound! Favorite songs option, with a limit of 30 songs! Uses Win Media Player to transfer its songs... It beats any iPod Nano's sound

Low Capacity for well-trainned ears, not very good voice recorder, bad LCD constrast

Consumer review by:

Great player for a super low price

 

i really see no problem with the backlite, but i would recommend investing in rechargeable batteries if u listen to it often, it has about a week of 2hrs per day listening. FM radio, easy setup, this thing is all you need for a low price (at the time i...

small & lightweight, durable (unlike Ipods), easy copying, functional features

no way to make playlists without making them on the computer, backlite stops working at half battery

Consumer review by:

Good basic MP3 player

 

I purchased two of these MP3 players. One is for my daughter, and one is for my wife. They're a 1-1/2 years old and they still work. The radio is useful for when you're tired of the MP3s, and it has a handy recorder too. You can use any of the...

No additional software necessary to load music, recorder and FM included

Sound quality not excellent
