Summary: Figured it was about time to give it a review. Had mixed feelings when I first bought mine, there was a black one in the display case, when I inquired, the clerk said that he had only one left in box, and it was Pink.
Summary: My previous Sansa mp3 player which was a c250 - now the SanDisk Sansa Express 2 GB MP3 Player (Black) (it's still going after 6 years!) - didn't have as much memory as I needed and start up was pretty slow... so I upgraded to a Sansa Fuze. I love my Sansa Fuze!
Summary: I was looking for better player..but this one is really the best (for me). You don't need ANY special software - not even a media player (like for most of the other - better - players) - just plug in into your computer and you can drag and drop your files like with a regular USB stick!
Summary: I got this as a Christmas gift at least 5 years ago now and I've used it fairly consistently ever since (only for music, though; never video, so I can't speak for that part of it). My gift came with an armband that I used with it as well, so it was always outside with me (in rain, cold, heat, etc.).
