SanDisk Sansa Connect 4GB USB 2.0 MP4/MP3 w/2.2" LCD

  • Conclusion: The Sansa Connect is nice little inexpensive MP3 player that can be further enhanced with just a firmware upgrade. This version does not come with Wi-Fi enabled but just updating the firmware fixes that, and makes it much more usable and enables more features.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Firmware upgradeable, Built-in speaker, Seems well made, Small and portable, Decent sound, Storage is expandable with microsSD card, Can easily enable wireless functionality
  • Cons: Small storage, Problem transferring files while using Vista

10 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Microsoft’s idea of letting people share their favorite songs using a wireless connection was as botched in execution as it was brilliant in conception. SanDisk’s Sansa Connect makes much more sense, although it requires users who want to share to cough up the $12- to $15-per-month subscription fee...
  • Pros: Wireless networking, Internet radio, great user interface.
  • Cons: Limited codec support, no support for lossless formats

SanDisk Sansa Connect Review

Anything but iPod
5 May 2007
  • Conclusion: Keep in mind that when considering this device for your next purchase that it is not a standard MP3 player, and it may not be for everyone. It is a DAP that offers new features that are not common to what we are all used to.

  • Cons: No custom EQ, No on-the-go playlists, Cannot browse entire Yahoo! Music library directly from the device, Weak battery life, Not all albums can be downloaded, Clean/Edited versions of songs, Cannot be signed in to your Yahoo! ID on your computer while signed into the Connect, Many features don’t ...

  • Summary: Is the wireless worth it? At $150 for a 4GB player, the Sansa Connect isn't cheap. But with a MicroSD slot included for expansion, and the ability to pull down songs from any location that has an open access point, the device's lack of storage isn't a big deal.
  • Pros: Downloads songs over Wi-Fi, nice colour screen
  • Cons: Slightly sluggish interface, expensive

  • Conclusion: La SanDisk ha voluto puntare tutto sulla connettività wireless, che offre la possibilità di scaricare le canzoni senza passare per il computer. Per il resto, però, la memoria interna non è molto ampia, anche se espandibile, non ha la radio e le dimensioni non sono poi tanto ridotte, a parte lo...
  • Pros: Espandibile con schede microSD; Display di buona qualità; Collegamento wireless
  • Cons: Prezzo; 4 gb sono pochi

  • Conclusion: Mis à jour le 5 juin 2007. Ce baladeur Wi-Fi se connecte par liaison sans fil au service de musique illimitée Yahoo afin d'y télécharger des chansons. Un appareil à part.
