inexpensive digital player - simple to use - good sound - long battery life
5 May 2012
Summary: I like the simplicity of the Sansa M2xx series. I can use "my computer" to manage files on the player. I drive 25 miles round trip for work and a battery lasts better than 3 weeks. If the battery dies while driving, I can change it at a stoplight and continue on. You don't need a charger for the car and another at the house. It remembers where you stopped listening even if you change the battery.
Summary: Does what it is supposed to. Easy to use and easy to transfer music from your computer. Sound quality is very good also. Has a built-in FM radio and is a voice recorder. (Both work very good also) My only con is the shape. Has a round underside to accomodate the AAA battery, therefore does not lay flat.
Summary: I bought this for my 8yr old because she is not patient enough to wait for other devices to charge when the battery drains. This little MP is excellent for her! The design is simple enough for her to operate and she feels in control of her music. The screen is more than a little small, but face it this is NOT a touch screen iplayer. If you want something simple and inexpensive to introduce your younger (or inexperienced) digital users to, this is the prouct for you.
Summary: The first one of these I had I used for a few years but it then just died. Still, it was the least expensive mp3 player that was compatible with audible.com software so I got another. They work fine other than two problems I experienced with both units. First, the information that comes with them doesn't bother to mention that the player must occasionally be reformatted. Suddenly it's stuck and it just won't work.
Summary: I had one of these and it broke and the usb cable went out of state. You know how children visit and things go missing. I bought this item because it was easy to use and completely relible. This item cam with nothing. I cant use it at all. And tried to buy replaced usb cable was impossible. Alwyas make sure that everything is included (ie usb cable, head phones, cd disk, Insructions).
Summary: Fast service, excellent condition, very happy! This was the first item we received in the mail for our last minute Christmas shopping, i was very happy at how fast in came in the mail. The price for this was very good and to see it in such great condition was very satisfying.
Summary: I have also had an M240 about a year, so I'm familiar with the product, which is identical but for twice the RAM. This one took about six hours to transfer my song list, probably five times longer than the M240 for about 300 Megs. Once loaded, it doesn't offer any selections under "Album" or "Artist" even after I emptied it and reloaded it, so I must play the music as it comes, with no choice of what is next.
Summary: This was a gift for my 6 year old son for Christmas and he loves it! I can't seem to work my small ipod so my teenage daughter downloaded the songs for my son the first time but I was even able to do it after that! So simple. The only thing that has me stumped is he is constantly deleting his downloads and I can't figure out how! I do like this and would suggest every person try this before buying a pricey ipod.
