Simple quality...can't go wrong !
9 September 2014
Summary: Love this MP3 ! Easy to use, great sound quality, easy to read screen, durable. The two main things I like about it is that it is simple to use and uses a AAA battery...if the battery runs down while I am running..I just pop another one in and go ! I carry a spare battery with me. I already had this exact MP3 when I bought this one. I liked it so much I wanted a back-up in case something happend to the first one.
Summary: I bought the SanDisk 256 MB MP3 player for my husband for Christmas. I realized he was a bit more technically savvy than me, so I ended up keeping it for myself and getting him another with more memory. I've never used an MP3 player, but the SanDisk 256 is so easy to use, I mastered it within minutes. The help disk included with the player also provided a download for MusicMatch Jukebox, which is similar to I-tunes or Napster.
Summary: Bought this for my two nephews and then one for myself. It's great that it includes everything you need (although I did buy different earphones). I easily loaded songs and use it on the treadmill. It's so lightweight!
Summary: We bought this player for my husband to use while jogging and while he is working in the yard. We didn't want to spen a fortune on constantly upgrading technology and at 256mb we figured he would have plenty of music for the reasons we bought the player. We loaded 4.5 CDs onto the player, 2 of which had 14 songs and some of those songs were as long as 6-8 minutes. It is awesome.
Summary: This player is generally about $70 in price, and it has even made its way into certain Kmart stores and other such retail stores. For certain people who need a flash MP3 player without spending half of your budget, this player is for you. Its audio quality is not bad at all, though audiophiles will notice a few slight defects. Don't waste an incredible amount on high-quality good sounding earphones. What you should do is invest in some far more comfortable earbuds.
Summary: As you may have read in other people's reviews, this mp3 player has one really bad problem...it occasionally freezes on the welcome screen and you can't do anything except take out the battery. This really pissed me off, and I was about to return it, however, I checked the Sandisk website and they had a firmware update that fixed the problem completely.
Summary: IMPORTANT UPDATE ! I just tried to update the firmware as described in their webpage and the player went totally DEAD ! Don`t do it ! I am waiting for a response from customer service. Old review: This player will not play audible files and doesn`t have a bookmark function, making it pretty much useless as an audiobook player. The resume function is only useful if you don`t change the file.
Summary: I didn't want anything too lavish or expensive as my first MP3 player, all I needed was something to play music with an FM radio so I could listen to the televisions during my workouts. Overall, I'm happy with this product. The joystick, as mentioned in other reviews, IS pretty difficult to use. The menu setup still has me confused. However, it holds more music than I will need for quite some time, and it does exactly what I bought it for.
