Summary: The navigation can be a little tricky sometimes but overall it's a really nice player. It's got a decent processor so the menu moves around pretty well. At 4GB out of the box with expandability for microSD, there is plenty of storage space.
Summary: Like many reviews, the challenge is the first charge. Since the battery is completely drained, I had success by plugging the USB cord into a wall adapter rather than through a computer USB port. Bottom line: plug it into the wall rather than a computer for the first charge. Otherwise, the startup is a little slow, but it works just fine. All of my music plays off of a microSD card with no problems.
Summary: I will often buy a "refurbished" product because I know it has been fixed, repaired, or at least confirmed in good working condition. The Sansa Fuze+ arrived, as expected based on other reviews, in a plain box with no manuals, instructions and a dead battery. I fully charged the unit using my cell phone charger, took about 2 hours. Using a USB port on a computer probably would have taken 4-5 hours.
