SanDisk Sansa Fuze


$130.00 Released April, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Built-in micro SD slot for expansion. Nice design. Excellent sound quality.

The Cons:Required proprietary dock connection. Video playback is weak. Slow responsiveness when skipping tracks.

The Sansa Fuze is a flash-based mp3 player that can also play video and has an FM tuner for radio. The player fits in the Sansa line between the simpler Sansa Clip and more sophisticated Sansa View. One of its most impressive features is its 24 hour battery life, although you will only get the 5 hours on video playback.

WillTouchFire: #sandisk_sansa_fuze I think they all look like the winamp players that preceded them on PCs. I've waited a long time for the price of these players to come down, since I'm very hard on my equipment. I've trashed the sony sportmans player, and if you ever had one of those, you know how hard that is. I bought a refurbished e130 for $25 & love it. It lacks bells & whistles, but provides basic playback & uses 2 gig cards( doesn't seem to be compatible w/ SDHC. I also have the 1st gen chocolate phone which I purchased a few years ago when they 1st came out. It's ok, but has it's drawbacks( the interface sucks, the adapter is crap, whoever designed the touch sensitive buttons should severely beaten). Aug 29, 08

Omar: #sandisk_sansa_fuze It's the standard. Just like how most video game controllers look the same, or televisions look the same, etc. If one design is SUPER successful over all others, then that's what people will just copy. Why reinvent the wheel and such? Apr 15, 08
