Summary: This works and is a good product. The biggest problem for me is that it does not have a bookmarking feature, which is essential for books on tape. FOr that reason, I'd go with a "Zen" type, or a more expensive Sansa model.
Summary: Overall it does what it is supposed to do: play music. The sound quality is neither bad or exceptional and a few issues with the device may crop up. I received this product during the holidays of `06 and I've already had to replace the earphones twice--which already, regardless were taken care of and treated carefully.
Summary: I ordered this player and it was great for about a week and then it froze when I turned it on. The company that sells it, TIGERDIRECT, has not responded to my emails so I went directly to SanDisk. SanDisk gave me a promt response and sent me a label to return the product with free shiping. Another bad thing about this player is that it organizes your music in it's own way and has trouble figuring out artists even if you have the artists name on the song.
Summary: "Sleek and ultra-thin" in the description here is a huge stretch. This mp3 player is anything but ultra-thin. Yes, it's compact, but it is far from thin. They also advertise that it will show album art while songs are playing - what they don't tell you is that this feature only works with the pre-loaded songs that come already on the player, and that sandisk gives you absolutely no instructions in the included literature, or in the user's manual (which is not included -...
Summary: I primarily purchased the product for recording lectures and it did not work well. The Mp3 recorder records the lecture, afterwards, recording is really bad. Sometimes it doesn't record at all or it erases the file or there is an error. In addition, the volume/sound quality is bad. Not loud enough. In the end, you need the software to transfer files, takes forever to figure out what to do.
Summary: I bought one of these from OfficeDepot (Sorry Amazon, but wanted it today). Price was way better here at Amazon, btw. Anyway, I have MP3 players from iRiver (the 5 gig hard drive model), Samsung (the venerable YP-MT6 they are no longer making but was fabulous), and my wife has Ipod mini. This device from SanDisk easily sounds the worst of any of these, and has the lowest quality build (at least by feeling of flimseyness.
Summary: For some reason, instead of listing the songs in order of the track number (as I have mine set up) it goes by by the alphabetical order of the actual name of the song, very annoying. It`s one of those players that relies way too much on ID3 tags instead of letting me organize the music based on how I setup the folders in Explorer (meaning any song file that doesnt have an ID3 tag gets shuffled into a generic "unknown category") This thing also does photos but....
Excerpt: Here we have another one that you can't say with the mouth full, and maybe not even in one breath. Try it ... SanDisk Sansa C150 2 GB Black mp3 player. It's a small, black mp3 player that also acts as a voice recorder. This seems to be true of a lot of the new-generation players flooding the market. The key now for the manufacturers, in this case Sandisk, is to develop a great-looking one with a good battery and great sound quality.
Pros: Good battery life and a relatively easy menu
Cons: The sound may not be the best around, and some prefer chrome to black
