Summary: Its like having a couple of your favorite CDs sitting in your pocket. If you are looking for quality over capacity this is what you are looking for. Musicians or Re-mixers that wants to listen to their work in high quality wav files rather than mp3 or wma on-the-go add at least 2 stars to the...
Pros: Plays WAV files! Records mono Uses AAA Battery not an internal re-chargeable that would eventually die out or need to be replaced. PC detectable as USB Drive so no extra software is needed, just drag and drop your music files.
Cons: Discontinued you have to search to find these now A stereo mic jack and larger capacity would be awesome improvements, but not necessarily weaknesses
Summary: I got this player in August '06, mainly to play audio books from Audible and the local online library (Overdrive Media files). Most of the time I listen in my car via cassette adapter. The 2gb capacity holds quite a few books, so I only have to load/unload books every 2 weeks or so.
Summary: My new m250 player when plugged into the USB port would not show up as a removable storage device under My Computer. I couldn't figure out what was wrong. I owned 2 model m230's that worked just fine, but this model m250 would not be recognized at all.
Summary: This is the second mSansa player I have purchased; the first was the M230, which served me very well until I decided I needed more space and bought the m250. A little about what makes this player so wonderful: - Simplicity. Just plug it in and your computer will recognize it as a storage device.
Summary: My previous MP3 players have all been iRivers, so I'm spoiled. The iRiver iMP-350's (I have two), are CD and CD-RW driven, and have a very extensive feature set that is obviously iterative and well thought out and is the result of several product cycles.
Summary: It is very small and so easy to work and download. I am 63 years old and I am so new to this. But, this player sounds great and do not be afraid of the AAA battery power. I use mine everyday for a couple of hours and the battery lasts 2 months or more.
Summary: Everybody today wants to own a MP3 player over anything else. Although many of us look for a quality one and its popularity, the quality must work just as well. Most of us though consider Apple and the popular Ipod series.
Summary: This is a four star player out of the box. However, with a free Mediamonkey download, you can make this a five star player. First, let me start off by saying that I have owned an Ipod and other popular mp3 players in the past.
