SanDisk Sansa SlotRadio Review

 

After attempting to sway tech simpletons away from CDs and on to microSD cards with the SlotMusic player, SanDisk is back to conquer the hearts of radio listeners in 2009 with the Sansa SlotRadio. Using a microSD card loaded with 1,000 songs across...

Solid build quality; generous accessory bundle

Very little control over tracks; clumsy radio controls; no equalizer; no hold button; possible to accidentally skip tracks

Even casual music fans who enjoy Billboard hits should save their cash and stick to FM radio.

Sansa SlotRadio

 

Rather than offering fancy wireless technology and the capability to tailor music to your liking, the SlotRadio provides an utterly simple and low-cost way to enjoy digital music; the $99 player includes a microSD card preloaded with 1,000 songs...

The SanDisk Sansa SlotRadio is exceptionally easy to use, and no computer is required. Songs are extremely cheap, and the player includes an FM tuner and an integrated belt-clip.

The SanDisk Sansa SlotRadio suffers from so-so sound quality, and the music it comes with is locked to the cards. Listeners are subject to the whims of the Billboard music editors.

The SanDisk Sansa SlotRadio player is far from your standard MP3 player--and people with persnickety music preferences won't be impressed--but the device is a perfect solution for those who prefer a hands-off approach when it comes to digital music.

Sandisk Sansa slotRadio player

 

Since the iPod has won the battle for supremacy among MP3 players, SanDisk is trying a different strategy. Building on its idea of distributing music on microSD cards, as with its slotMusic player, the tiny Sansa slotRadio player ($99.99 direct), comes...

Compact design. Easy to use. No PC needed. Comes with a microSD card with 1,000 songs from Billboard charts. Plays WMA and MP3s from microSD cards. FM radio with 40 presets

Monochrome display. Can't skip backward. No auto-off when no earphones are plugged in

If modern radio hits are your thing, the tiny Sansa slotRadio player is a great value1,000 songs (plus the device) for $100. Just be prepared for a no-frills listening experience.

SanDisk Sansa slotRadio

 

This MP3 player offers preloaded music cards to keep your media needs simple and manageable. But is less really more?

Want a new MP3 player? Good luck. These days the market is so saturated with look-alikes, seem-alikes and feature-creeps that finding a good, simple media box can be a real chore. The developers at SanDisk want to change that, and with the new SanDisk...

SanDisk Sansa SlotRadio

 

I gave this to my dad a few weeks back, and he's been raving about it non-stop. Best gift I ever bought him (other than the Clapper…). No PCs to sync with, no downloads, no credit cards or subscriptions… I am surprised that you try to judge this player...

SanDisk Sansa SlotRadio

 

My review is for the micro sd cards filled with 1000 songs. I have gotten the “Oldies” one, and today I got the “80s/90s” one . Both for $40. That's 4 cents a song, which is ridiculous cheap. I had an 8 GB Fuze already, and it works like a charm. Had...
