SanDisk Sansa Fuze+ MP3 (white, 8GB)

CNET
21 September 2010
  • Excerpt: iPods aren't for everybody. The ones with all the cool features will set you back at least $150, and the ones you can afford don't do much. If you want to spend less than $100 for a portable media player that can handle music, photos, videos, FM radio, podcasts, and voice memos, your best bet is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze+.
  • Pros: The Sansa Fuze+ comes in a variety of colors and capacities, at superaffordable prices. Features such as video playback, AAC compatibility, FM radio, photos, podcasts, Rhapsody support, voice recording, and Mac compatibility make it an easy iPod alternative to recommend.
  • Cons: The new touch-pad navigation is sluggish; screen resolution isn't great; audio quality is just average; and the all-plastic design feels cheap.

  • Conclusion: The Sansa Fuze isn't particularly innovative—it's just another simple, yet solid portable media player from SanDisk. We just wish it had more robust file support.
  • Pros: Reasonably priced. Cute, compact design. A microSD slot for memory expansion. FM radio. Voice and radio recording.
  • Cons: File support is limited. All video and photo files require conversion.

  • Excerpt: SanDisk's Sansa Fuze is a neat-looking PMP that manages to combine good looks and plenty of multimedia features into a single device. Then again, most PMPs – even the more economical ones – have similar, if not identical, features. What makes a player worth buying is the functionality of those features, and easy navigation. Here are my findings after checking out the Sansa Fuze. Form Factor iPod Nano lookalike or not, the Fuze looks good.

SanDisk Sansa Fuze Review

LAPTOP Magazine
28 April 2008
  • Summary: All in all, the SanDisk Sansa Fuze is a terrific value. As SanDisk manufactures its own flash memory, it passes along the savings to customers in the form of a player that's $49 and $69 cheaper than comparable 4GB and 8GB iPod nanos, respectively. If you can live without the iTunes integration, you'll find the SanDisk Sansa Fuze an excellent digital audio player.

Sandisk Sansa Fuze review

PriceRunner
13 February 2009
  • Excerpt: A Nano competitor at a Shuffle price – you can find this discounted all over the web – the Fuze is a great little MP3 player . It looks smart, is very compact, accepts microSD cards in addition to its onboard memory and plays video. The screen is a mammoth 1.5 inches across – just imagine how good The Dark Knight or Lawrence of Arabia must look on it!! We do apologise; sarcasm is a very low form of wit.
  • Pros: You can drag and drop music on to this, or use WMA to sync, make playlists and what have you. Sound quality is easily the best we’ve heard at this price, as long as you don’t mind, as usual, hurling the supplied buds into a bin and providing your own. The menu system is straightforward and intelligently laid out, even though the clickwheel feels a little less than rock-solid. Also along for the ride are a (not very good) radio and a (pretty nifty) voice recorder, too.
  • Cons: Although audio is excellent, you can’t push the volume very high. We know it’s for the good of our hearing, but it’s still irksome. Video has to be converted to a proprietary format, using a buggy and annoying bit of software that has to be located in the hidden recesses of Sansa’s website and downloaded. Video’s probably not worth bothering with on a device this titchy, anyway.
