Conclusion: With features like FM turner, Voice Recording, Video Playback, Replaceable Battery, and many others, this is really a great device. After using it for several weeks I really don’t have many complaints. My main issue is the lack of support for other video formats besides Quicktime. Another minor issue would be no gain control for the voice recorder. Those are not all that important for an MP3 player this size.
Conclusion: There are a few things I find annoying about the e200. The resume fuction is buggy, the tracks do not play in the correct album order, and there is no custom EQ. All of these are possible to fix in the firmware, so hopefully SanDisk will fix them in the near future. The tactile scroll wheel works but it doesn’t feel right, the controls could have been better with a different type of interface. Despite those issues, the Sansa e200 series is a very nice player.

Excerpt: Der SanDisk e250 sieht auf den ersten Blick aus wie der kleine Ipod Nano. Beim genaueren Betrachten wird allerdings deutlich, dass der hübsche MP3-Player zwar in etwa die gleiche Höhe und Breite hat, jedoch mit 77 Gramm auch deutlich schwerer und nicht so flach wie der Nano ist.
Der e250 ist exzellent verarbeitet und überzeugt durch ein brillantes Farbdisplay sowie durch seine sehr einfache Bedienbarkeit.
