Sansa View


Though I've previously pledged my allegiance to iPod, I'm always on the lookout for hot products, and I had high hopes for SanDisk's Sansa View.

Easy-to-use raised click wheel Very clear sound and vibrant screen

Unintuitive menu navigation Can only be charged via USB

Despite my qualms regarding its internal menus, the Sansa View is a well-rounded portable player with an attractive design, good color quality, and clear sound

Sandisk Sansa View


SanDisk is run by smart people. The Sansa View was announced back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show, but when it still hadn't hit stores by midyear, many came to the conclusion that SanDisk had scrapped plans for the device. What actually...

Affordable. Expandable. Sharp display. Fast menu navigation. FM and voice recording

Large for a flash device. Graphics seem dated. So-so voice recorder

The Sansa View looks a bit boring when compared with the Samsung P2 or the iPod touchbut it offers standard features and plenty of storage at the best price.

SanDisk Sansa View review


You may recognize the name Sansa View, but that's about all SanDisk's new video MP3 player has in common with the original View announced at CES . SanDisk essentially went back to the drawing board, which is why it's taken so long for the official View...

The Sansa View digital media player is an incredible value considering its features, which include photo and video support, a microSD card slot, an FM radio, and a voice recorder. The screen is relatively large, and there's a separate podcast menu for...

The Sansa View is large for a flash player, and the onscreen interface is somewhat uninspiring. The small center select button may present a problem for some users.

If you value features and price over a flashy interface and excellent sound quality, the SanDisk Sansa View digital media player is definitely worth a look. It's easy to use and offers a relatively large screen and a memory expansion option.

16GB SanDisk Sansa View


Portable MP3 Players

XL 16GB internal memory ; 2.4" TFT color screen ; MicroSD/SDHC card slot ; UI very intuitive

EQ doesn't work with FM tuner ; Mediocre battery life

The refurbished 16GB SanDisk Sansa View seems like a real keeper, while I do have a few minor gripes with the Sansa View (so-so battery life, Media Converter annoying ad screens) the only major gripe I have with the MP3 player itself is the Music EQ...

A Different Viewpoint: The SanDisk Sansa View

SanDisk Sansa View MP3 Player Review


Way back in January of 2007, SanDisk unveiled the new Sansa View to the world at CES. For some reason, SanDisk felt that this original design wouldn't be popular in the consumer market, so they went back to the drawing board to totally revamp the...

The SanDisk Sansa View is the successor to the popular Sansa e200 line of MP3 players from SanDisk. Like the Sansa e200 players, the View features an almost "Zune-like" appearance with a good-sized display and a navigational wheel on the front. This is...

SanDisk Sansa View Review


The Sansa View is SanDisk's flagship flash MP3 player with the ability to playback video on its 240x320 64k color screen. What makes the Sansa View interesting is its high capacity flash memory along with memory expansion putting it in close rivalry to...

The entire SanDisk Sansa line of MP3 players is undoubtedly the leader in the best "bang for your buck category" and this is no different for the View considering its many features and large capacities. Over time you will see the View getting big...

Review: Sandisk Sansa View — Could This Be Perfection In A Box?


I do not think I have anticipate writing any review as much as I have anticipated the Sandisk Sansa View. I first encountered the View last year when I discovered it on Sansa's website. At that time, it looked significantly different than the entire...
