Conclusion: The e260 has an excellent combination of features, style, ease of use, and price, but the overall user experience still isn't quite as smooth as that of the iPod nano.
Pros: Removable battery. Sturdy shell. Very good audio quality. Easy to use. Expandable storage. Extensive feature set. Strong FM tuner.
Cons: Playlisting features aren't great. Buttons are slightly difficult to press. No lossless support. Loading music in USB mode causes erratic behavior. Requires separate apps for loading music and visual media.
Excerpt: The SanDisk Sansa e200 series MP3 players offers everything you need for music, photos, and video clip playback. The Sansa e260 player, with its 4GB memory, plays back over 64 hours of MP3 music and over 128 hours of WMA.
Excerpt: SanDisk is more popular in our side of the world for memory cards that most of the budget conscious buyers avoid in favor of cheaper (and often fake) brands, but in the other parts of the world, their Sansa series of MP3 players have been getting a lot of attention and are more widely appreciated...
Summary: Sandisk isn’t a name you’re likely to immediately associate with MP3 players. You’re more likely to think, ‘mmm, solid-state storage’ and other such dirty thoughts. But the memory king has been chipping away at the MP3 block for a little while, and has fashioned something rather good: the e260.
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.
