Summary: I bought this MP3 player several months ago. The screen display broke almost immediately, and now it won't even turn on. I also bought the platinum protection plan, which I have just been informed by customer service is unable to cover the MP3 player. I read similar reviews before buying this product, but hoped my experience would be different. It wasn't.
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: The sound on this unit is great. The unit came without instructions so I didn't know what to do. It wasn't until I downloaded the instructions from the company's web site tha t I was able to operate the unit. Even with the instructions I am still having difficulties downloading music into it. Other than that, the radio feature works nice and so does the recording feature.
Summary: The directions were so small that these old eyes could not read them...difficult to transfer music because of some other system needed. A student helped me with that..ear buds are large and painful. Once it was all done, the quality of the music is ok but not great...but small and easy to put in the pocket while working out or working.
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: My primary objective in getting another good MP3 player (my RIO bit the dust out of warranty and out of business) was to download Audible books. Second, I wanted an MP3 player with enough capacity for the books plus a few hours of music. The Sansa M250 met these objectives for much less than I would have had to pay for an iPod. The big frustration I have with it is that it jumps forward at least 2 minutes every time I stop playing an audio book.
