SanDisk Sansa View

Monster-Hardware
29 July 2012
  • Summary: The refurbished 16GB SanDisk Sansa View seems like a real keeper, while I do have a few minor gripes with the Sansa View (so-so battery life, Media Converter annoying ad screens) the only major gripe I have with the MP3 player itself is the Music EQ doesn't work with the FM radio. If you don't listen to the radio much this isn't a problem, but I do, and for me it is. I am not sure yet what to make of the video and picture functions.
  • Pros: XL 16GB internal memory, 2.4" TFT color screen, MicroSD/SDHC card slot, UI very intuitive
  • Cons: EQ doesn't work with FM tuner, Mediocre battery life

A Different Viewpoint: The SanDisk Sansa View

Digital Home Thoughts
31 August 2009
  • Summary: In the minds of many people, the name iPod is synonymous with MP3 player. But savvy consumers know that there are many excellent alternatives. One such alternative is the Sansa View by Sandisk. This flash player is designed to provide a good measure of the features of the hard drive-based iPod Classic at prices that compete with the iPod Nano. Can lots of features at an affordable price make up for the lack of the iconic iPod name?
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality;, Large, bright and crisp screen;, Expandable memory;, Works with subscription music services like Rhapsody;, Great value.
  • Cons: Not the smallest player out there;, Videos have a slight green cast;, Supports only .jpg photo format.

CNET

  • Summary: If you value features and price over a flashy interface and excellent sound quality, the SanDisk Sansa View digital media player is definitely worth a look. It's easy to use and offers a relatively large screen and a memory expansion option.
  • Pros: The Sansa View digital media player is an incredible value considering its features, which include photo and video support, a microSD card slot, an FM radio, and a voice recorder. The screen is relatively large, and there's a separate podcast menu for easy sorting of such content. It works with Mac and Windows and supports WMA subscription services and Audible.
  • Cons: The Sansa View is large for a flash player, and the onscreen interface is somewhat uninspiring. The small center select button may present a problem for some users.

  • Conclusion: The Sansa View looks a bit boring when compared with the Samsung P2 or the iPod touch—but it offers standard features and plenty of storage at the best price.
  • Pros: Affordable. Expandable. Sharp display. Fast menu navigation. FM and voice recording.
  • Cons: Large for a flash device. Graphics seem dated. So-so voice recorder.

SanDisk Sansa View

  • Excerpt: The View is SanDisk’s attempt at a video oriented PMP and features a slightly larger screen than their mainstream E200 series. It’s also a slightly longer device, and gives up the metal back for a matt finished black rear that adds a touch of class to an already up-market looking device. The ribbed click wheel also goes in favour of a smooth finish with a smooth moving click wheel.

  • Conclusion: I like the Sansa. The price and storage capacity suit me down to the ground, but being SanDisk you’ll know the quality will be there too. While there are better and bigger brands available, very few can match the price vs storage vs quality benchmarks set by SanDisk

SanDisk Sansa View Review

Anything but iPod
30 January 2008
  • Conclusion: The entire SanDisk Sansa line of MP3 players is undoubtedly the leader in the best “bang for your buck category” and this is no different for the View considering its many features and large capacities. Over time you will see the View getting big discounts like seen with the e200; making this player even more attractive. There are a few trade-offs in firmware stability, screen, and build quality, so it may not be a winner for the more demanding consumer.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Expandable microSD Slot, Good radio, Great looking video out
  • Cons: Buggy Firmware, Mediocre Screen, Unorganized UI, OK Build Quality

SanDisk Sansa View media player

Techworld
19 December 2007
  • Summary: Overall, the SanDisk Sansa View is a full-featured device with only a few shortcomings, such as its size and navigation software that could use a bit more depth. However, for many, those shortcomings will be more than offset by its sheer value. It is cheaper than the comparable Creative Zen and it is the same price, and has twice the native storage capacity, as the iPod nano, plus it has a handful of features the nano doesn't have.
