    Good solid MP3 Player

    This is my 3rd Sansa. I buy them because the value compared to the high- priced I-pods makes it irresistible. My first 2 were Views. Lost 1 & dropped the other in the toilet. It actually worked when I fished it out except no audio output. I bought the clip because I don't need the big screen & it has a convenient clip(be gentle with the clip-it can break) . I've found a few tricks with these things. When it freezes up turn it off. Hold down the start button for 20-30 seconds. Wait a few seconds & turn it on again-it should work now. Also do not fill up the memory more than 80-90%. This is when it starts having problems. Buy a bigger micro SD card. This is what their customer service told me & my own experiences verified. It also has a problem charging. When it is off & charging it will not charge all the way. It will even discharge when past 90%. Turn it on & put it on hold & charge it this way. Will charge up fully & faster. Makes no sense but this is what my Clip does.

    great 1st official mp3 player

    The only other one I had was on my phone, so this was a great starter one. I love how I can pack tons of music, get radio, and even record on this little thing. I love how I can use while I workout and run around with it getting in the way. The playback is great too on the songs. I play a decent amount of training material so I do like a equalizer for speech, and I wish there was some way I could edit the information of my mp3s, create folders, moving my music from one place to another from the player itself, which I don't know if that's possible on other players. I also wish for bluetooth (that that probably would mean more money). However, I definitely love it. I use it as often as I can,

    Really good MP3

    I've been through 3 of these MP3's, the first because it went in the pool (oops), the 2nd one, the volume button on the side stuck and it wouldn't turn the volume up any (down works, but the up didn't), and I'm on my third right now. I use this a lot for golf practice and working out, it sometimes freezes up, but I just turn it off and back on again and I'm back in action. I always drop it and its only once broken (the 2nd one). i love this MP3!!! :D

    If your looking for something that easy to use and would like to see the screen this is a great option if your in the market for a iPod Nano. I have that two but for the money you get expandable memory and radio which this has replaced the Nano for my workout MP3 player

    Good quality for the money!

    It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of many MP3 players on the market. But -- if you're just looking for something that holds ALOT of music, is small/compact, and is good quality -- you CANNOT go wrong with this player. PLUS, it has the added feature of being able to play SanDisk's slotRadio cards (pre-loaded memory cards with 1,000 songs on them - usually sell for around $39.95 each). Try to catch this MP3 player when it's on sale. It's often sold for around $39.95 to $49.95.

    Bought it for the Wife's birthday. I had read web data on how to transfer (rip) CD music to MP3. It looked like a complex task. Actually, it was super easy using Windows Media Player. She loves it. The only problem I have is it's so darned small that I can't see when she's using it and my conversation goes unanswered. Now, I gotta have one too. BTW: We're both "seniors".

    Like the radio feature but...

    I chose the Sansa over an iPod because I like to listen to my favorite morning radio show during my bus ride to work. The radio does not work very well and is often full of static. I can sometimes alleviate the problem by adjusting the tuner but it's a pain to have to continue doing that. The music feature works great and I love it!! The clip is great because I can either clip it to my coat or bag.

    Top reason for wanting is to download audiobooks. Works great for that. Controls are a little small and sometimes finicky; have to push the button just right. Bought some different earplugs; the ones that come with the player hurt my ears. Like the clip; comes in handy.

    My 6 Year Old Loves it!

    GidgetNJ

    My 6 year old loves her new MP3 player. Although she does need some assistance identifying the buttons. It was easy to download music, perfect size for her little hands and seems to be very durable. Since christmas we've only had to charge it once. The other bonus...it was on sale and we paid 40% less for it. Great item for a great price!

    Previously, I reviewed that this product worked great and then died after 3-6months. I have since learned that you can reset this product with a pin through a small hole in the back. The product has worked great since. Kudos to all the internet blogs that had helped.

    Very small and compact. Screen is readable. Sound is good. My wife isn't very tech saavy, but she can operate it. Bought it on sale around Christmas, so that made it an even better value. Did upgrade to a better set of ear buds. Nothing fancy, but would buy it again.

    This was my first mp3 player. I really enjoy it. Great value, quite easy to load music. Sound is very good, maybe invest in better ear buds. Buttons are a little tricky to navigate at times.

    Pretty easy to use - as this was our first MP3 player we were totally unfamiliar with how to use .....needed to read the directions.
