Summary: This is a great little MP3 player especially if you want to be moving while using it. Unfortunaley, there is a known problem with the player that Sandisk has not been able to fix with new firmware. At random times the sound will emit a crackle and skip (remember what a scratch did to your LP playback?). Sandisk customer support tried to help, but finally advised me to return the player if I was not satisfied. I used it for Audible books.
Summary: I've only had this for a month and it is already messed up. It will not turn on immediatly, it will not no longer remember where it was playing the last time I cut it off. I don't know what's wrong with this thing. I plan to return mine and get a real player!
Summary: For the first month I was very excited about my Sandisk. It was easy to load and the sound was great. Since then the music skips constantly, the static is annoying and that is only if there is any sound. It is no longer worth using. This was refurbished merchandis that really did not pass the test.............
Summary: Ok so I was so excited to get this for my fiancee because he had just started a new job and doesnt get good radio reception while at work because he has to drive so far everyday depending on where they send him. So he would not buy himself an iPod or an MP3 Player so it was a suprise so when I got it needless to say I could not wait to open it!
A screaming deal that will probably also give you a headache

Summary: Sandisk is discontinuing this model, thus the 80% price break. While that's not necessarily a mark against the unit, the software glitches I've experienced from Day 1 certainly are. A quick check of the Sandisk discussion boards reveals that a number of people (including myself) have experienced freezing of the unit right after a file transfer.
Summary: Think twice, and if you can go a step up for a better model, do so. The buttons will drive you crazy! The sound isn't bad, and the price for the amount of storage is great. Unfortunately the buttons are tempermental, and whatever you do, don't use the cover. The cover make the the buttons inoperable.
Summary: I purchased a SanDisk for my son last Xmas, and returned it to the manufact to get fixed. Three months later the thing is broke again. The quality is poor spend a little extra money and get a good MP3 player that will last and not break on you. Customer service that I dealt with was kind and courteous they were easy to deal with, it is just the fact that I had to deal with them and had to have the thing fixed after such a shor time of having it and then to get it back...
Summary: If you're going to buy any one of the Sansa m200 series MP3 players for use with a subscription music service such as Napster-to-go or Rhapsody, I would recommend staying away from the m260 for the simple fact that it doesn't work with those services yet. For the other models (m230, m240, m250) there is currently a firmware upgrade that will allow you to use them with the service, but there is no firmware upgrade available for the m260.
