These Are Obsolete. Pick A Different Model. Bottom Line.
25 August 2011
Summary: Sound quality is sub-par although it does give you the classic radio sound sensation from the 80's. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM is the player No Longer Supports easy USB file transfers with MTP format. If you want a great MP3 look for a Sony. If you are set on Sansa go for the clip or express. I DO NOT WANT YOU putting any old garbage into your ears.
Summary: I bought 2 of this for Christmas one worked for 33days the other one never did. Got refund on one, the other can't because warranty expires in 30 day, and player got dead on the 33rd day. Bottom lines, crappy player, don't buy it!!
Summary: their customer service was horrible, bad connection from india? The first one only lasted 5 months and the second one only lasted 6 months, drive on both of them just went haywire, then nothing. I used it about 10 hours a week when I am excercising. always had issues when I was trying to load songs on it, sometimes i would have to clear the player and reload all the playlists just to add five or six new songs, so it was a hassle then it broke then customer service blew...
Summary: San Disk C150. Stopped working in about 10 days(locks up after boot up screen), returned and received new one. Replacement stopped working in about 5 days. I am now going to replace it. And yes,I went through the SAn Disk support first,but they told me to return it. On a good note I was pretty impressed with the promptness of the phone surport.
Summary: I purschased this item and it seemed to work well, after a month it refuses to start up, just shows the SanDisk screen and does not move further. I tried replacing the AAA battery, but still did not work. Also the Sandisk site does not have any firmware upgrade for C150 model. Anyways before we can upgrade the firmware we have to set the player in the USB->MSC mode or something like that. When I cannot start the player how can I put it any of the modes via the Menu ?
Summary: My SanDisk MP3 player worked great -- for about three days. Then, after the original battery ran out, it was never the same again. When a brand new battery of the correct type was placed in the device, it was rarely able to detect the new battery. Even when it did, it still did not play a single MP3 file. It also can't be detected by my computer anymore. If only I could go back in time and prevent myself from purchasing this dreadful product.
Summary: I like the styling and the sound of this device, but the implementation is seriously flawed. Battery life is abysmal - I took it on a flight to Seoul (12 hours) and chewed through 3 Duracells. One problem may be that the backlight turns on (seemingly at random) at the beginning of some songs, and there doesn't appear to be a way to turn this off. I'm on my second unit and it appears to be no better. Audible functionality is also limited.
