Excerpt: The Sandisk Sansa e280 was the second MP3 I’ve owned after my 2nd Generation Apple iPod Nano. I bought it because I wanted to give something else a try instead of spending all of my money on Apple products, and I’m glad I did. It also had more …
Excerpt: I received Sandisk’s Sansa e280 portable mp3 player a couple of years ago, and aside from expected wear and tear and a couple of strange blips that rectified themselves, I’ve been pretty pleased with this portable’s performance over the past few years. It holds 8 gigabytes worth of music, …
Excerpt: This SanDisk Sansa e280 MP3 Player is the first MP3 player I have ever had. For a first time machine I don’t think I could have done too much better. There are a few minor problems with the machine but overall I am happy. It comes in different sizes …
Summary: Ok, I just will like to say that I bought this little guy on Feb. 22nd with free shipping and received it Feb 24th. SUPER DUPER fast shipping!!! WOW!!! VERY, VERY IMPRESSED with the shipping. Ok now to the players. I own the e250 v1 with a 2GB MicroSD card which I have had for about 2 years now.
Summary: First off, if you're only interested in playing music, have 8GB of it, use Windows Media Player to manage your music and don't mind DRM crippleware, this is a five-star piece of hardware for a five-star price. My review and rating are intended for people like me who want (and expected) more.
Summary: After probably too much research, I got the Sansa for about $100 less than the comparable Nano with an FM tuner and voice recorder. The size is tiny yet the controls are accessible (I can control it well in my pocket without looking). It has worked fine in the subzero temps of winter this month.
Summary: It's all about the controls, and the ones on this player stink compared to the iPod's click wheel. To scroll through a long list of songs takes forever--unlike the iPod, the speed of scrolling does not speed up if you speed your finger spinning up--takes forever to get halfway through the alphabet.
Summary: I finally decided to replace my ancient (I got it in 04) MP3 player. Back then I payed 70 dollars for a 256 meg MP3 player. A month ago, when I got this, I paid 120 for an 8 gig MP3 player. Moore, eat your heart out. Positives: The capacity. 8 gigs is a lot of music.
Summary: Just so you know in advance, I've never owned an iPod and won't be comparing the Sansa to one. I purchased the e280 as a Christmas present for myself. I plan to use it for mp3 songs and occasionally listen to the radio. 8 Gigs is plenty of space for me. It's equivalent to over 11 CDRs of data.
Summary: I've bought two sansas. One went dead after 4 months of use... a problem known as 'Blue Ring'. All of the sudden it went dead... I was disconnecting Sansa from Rhapsody and pooff... the blue ring goes on but nothing else happens.
