Summary: I own many MP3 players and still use this one. This is a no frills MP3 player. It's perfect for working out. I don't recommend the arm band it's just uncomfortable. It's shaped so it fits in the palm of your hand perfectly. I love the fact that this MP3 player uses one AAA battery and I always leave an extra one in my car or in my bike bag (nothing is more annoying than having your player die during a workout).
Summary: We purchased the SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 to use as a source of music while riding our motorcycle. We are typically in areas where radio reception is "spotty" to "nonexistent". We have another MP3, but it is difficult to access the menu options, has less than desirable music quality and uses a USB to recharge - something not always available in the middle of a motorcycle trip or in remote places.
Summary: Sandisk makes really good product lines, and the Sansa m200 series is one of the best. Pros: Uses replaceable AAA Battery that lasts up to 8 hours of continuous playback time. FM Radio Stopwatch (!) Voice Recorder And many choices to play your songs back such as by Album, by Artist, or just play all alphabetically And with the m250, you get 2GB of space, which can hold up to ~20 hours of playback time. VERY GOOD SOUND QUALITY! Cons: B&W display, no color!
Summary: My wife and I have owned two SanDisk Sansa m240 Players for years and have loved them. Recently I wanted a Sansa that had more memory so I could load it up with old time radio mystery shows to listen to. We're retired and we walk long distances every day for health. These old radio shows are 30 and 60 minutes in length so I wanted an mp3 player with more memory that could hold a lot of shows, this model holds over 300 shows which is a lot considering how long each show...
Summary: Back when MP3 players were taking off I helped sell a lot of these to customers. The main thing that made these easy to sell was the easy way to place songs on the device, drag and drop, iPods were and are still terrible at this, since you can still never see your songs listed by the filename. Back when practically none of your ripped CD's had TAGs with the artist, album, etc.
Summary: This is a great little product! Its my second one, the first lasted 5 years and is still working but I gave it to my Granddaughter and got this one. Downloads are easy, nothing fancy, and its light weight for running which I mostly use it for. I have lots of music, talking books, language tapes and it holds all I need on it. I reccomend it to anyone who wants a simple but useful player without all the fuss!
Summary: If you're looking for an MP3 for a senior citizen, a child, or maybe for yourself to use in your car - this is the one! Super simple to manipulate, my 87 year old dad loves it (and he is blind). My 4 year old granddaughter loves hers. And I use one in the car because I don't have to look at it the way I do my ipod.
Summary: This little player is indestructable! I purchased mine about 4 years ago. I have dropped it several times on hard floors, still worked great. Then my latest klutz episode was to drop it in the toilet while listening to it! It let out a PFFFT noise and quit. I changed out the battery, but still could only get it to light up but LCD display was blank.
Summary: Great MP3 player. It's not an iPod, but who needs it. It holds all the music I want to hear. Best thing is that it runs a very long time on a single AAA battery. No need to recharge the thing every other day. Just carry a spare battery. A plus when out running, backpacking, or camping away from power sources. It's a little thicker than some other popular players, but still very compact.
