Excerpt: I am an absolute music fiend which goes to saying I probably wouldn’t live without listening to my favorite tunes. It’s my daily dose of escapism. For a music player , I have an old Sandisk Sansa e260 mp3 player . This mp3 player was cheaper compared to popular brands like Apple’s Ipod and Microsoft’s Zune when I bought it at that time. Now it’s probably much cheaper. For me, this player if not all-out, can potentially rival the ipod nano.
Pros: Long battery life, extremely sturdy, has cases for it, lights up, nice screen size, easy navigation
Cons: Screen kind of easy to damage, after awhile the hold button starts to act up, randomly turns on at will, sometimes playing videos will freeze the entire thing and you have to wait until it dies before using again. Volume resets every time. Heavy.
Pros: Nice and easy to use menu. I think the mechanical click wheel is one up on apple, Its easier to hit what your trying to hit. Pretty sturdy case.
Cons: I know three people who had this thing and after about a year they all die of software malfunctions. One day I turned it on and it had a black screen with green bars. It was dead. Also the screen gets dirt in it. no games.
Summary: The Sansa m250 is a great mp3 player for the price. I use to own an I-pod mini and when the space ran out, I bought the Sansa. At first I was hesitant of the new MP3 player, I really liked my Ipod. However, I found the features offered on the sandisk product gave it the edge over the I-pod. Pros- *The voice recorder and FM radio/ recorder. These features are great, considering I'm a college student.

Summary: Some difficuly downloading videos onto player. Need to install Sansa Media Converter software from Sansa.com. Haven't gotten back to that to figure out yet. The player doesn't come with a DVD/software. Had to configure my computer to recognize the player, minor trouble doing that but did it and I am not too computer savvy. Overall a good product and value. Player doesn't come with a charger.
Summary: Being refurbished it did not come with factory instructions or software which made it a little harder to understand and use this device. The screen is a little small but it gets the job done. The SanDisk Sansa has 2 feature that I like that are not standard on many other MP3 players. Those features are an FM radio and a MicroSD card expansion slot. The price is great compared to many other MP3 players and I highly recommend this product to other people.
