Excerpt: Used as a general MP3 player. It has a good, bright display and the sound quality is very good. Unit is difficult navigate. The touchpad interface is ackward and does not lend itself to easily selecting music. Touchpad operation is also very inconsistant.This makes the unit very frustrating to operate.
Pros: Good Display, Good Sound
Cons: Difficult To Navigate, Inconsistant Touchpad
Summary: I have no idea why people are giving this product such bad reviews. I've had mine for 3 years and I've never had a problem. No white screen of death, no freezing, no problem navigating the system. I had an old sansa and sadly it was stolen but it had all of the problems I mentioned. This newer version fixed a lot of the bugs it had before.
Excerpt: My use is limited to music & radio. (No photos, no video) Given that, the Fuze+ works just fine. The unit comes with 16GB & I added an additional 16GB memory card.(Which I personally needed) Between the memory & the features, I have a lot of flexibility. I've seen reviews stating the touch screen is too sensitive & I can understand that. But even with my fat fingers, I can navigate with no trouble. This is the MP3 player for me.
Summary: I purchased this player because I had read a review that suggested it was good for listening to audiobooks. This is not the case. 1. The player's controls are too sensitive. If an ant sneezes within 500 metres whilst you are listening it will switch chapters. The only way to use the player is to set it whilst remaining very still and then select the 'lock' option. This is also very sensitive and will often turn itself off whilst the player is in your pocket or bag 2.
Summary: I love it. It is the perfect size. It fits snugly into the coin pocket of almost all my jeans, making it very accessible. The only issue is that the headphone jack has lost it's grip, so if you tug on the headphones slightly, they come out. But I can deal with that.
