5.0 out of 5 stars Tips on sound 10 Dec 2010
By Kirakat
Colour Name:Blue
The quality is incredible for such a small device.

One tip for the sound is; if you use the European presets you may find that the maximum volume is to low. This apparently is due to EU legislation imposing restrictions on the maximum volume.

If you select the American or Asian presets the restriction on the volume is removed and the the maximum volume of the device will be significantly louder

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing but surprises 12 Dec 2011
By Asday
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I'm not gonna lie. I bought this on recommendation from 4chan forever ago. Recently came into the money to get it, and did so.

First off, it's TINY. I thought it was gonna be about the length of an AA battery, but it's shorter than my thumb, and SO LIGHT. It's called a "Clip" 'cause like 80% of the thing is a massive clip. If it didn't have the clip, I think it'd weigh a negative amount, and NASA would be all: "Dude bro, you best give that to us," which means the clip is a good thing. It's nice and unobtrusive, though, and I assume, for those that enjoy such things, it'd work just fine.

The buttons are just big and distinct enough for me to press through my pocket, but not enough to be pressed accidentally, and even if they were, you can lock it all up, so that's cool.

The thing receives FM radio too! I mean, it says it does, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but it's FM radio, man. I didn't even know that still had stuff on it.

What else is there... Oh yeah, the screen. It's SUPER bright, and has colour. I thought it'd be a Game Boy Green-And-Darker-Green dealy, but no, apparently not. Pleasant surprises all around.

It comes with earphones, but I'm not gonna go near them. I have weird ear hygeine phobias, so I'm just using my normal headset. The Clip is a bit on the quiet side, but one of the major reasons I bought it is because you can Rockbox it, with custom firmware, and the low volume is apparently one of the things it fixes/enhances. -- Just found out the reason it's quiet is because I told it I was in Europe, where there's apparently a really stupid law that means you're not actually allowed to hear your music. When you turn this on for the first time, tell it you're in the "Rest of the world".

5.0 out of 5 stars great little mp3, now my constant companion! 4 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
the Sansa is a great device, suits me almost perfectly. I think its been a little improved of late by firmware updates which have addressed a few of the negative points made by others in their reviews. I've listed a few important notes below.

* a firmware updater program comes on the device and installs from it, or you can download it from sandisk website. It does everything for you, you just have to run it. My firmware is 1.02.18 which I got upgraded to after I purchased the player only a month ago, so anyone buying one should make sure they have upgraded

* the device can run in 2 USB modes - MTP or MSC. The device comes preset to 'auto', which means it will operate in the mode determined by your computer when plugged in. BEWARE !! The mode can easily switch between uses even when used in the same computer, and each operate in a totally different manner. MSC means the device will appear like a USB stick / standard disk storage to your windows computer, whereas MTP presents it as a media device which requires a MTP-enabled application to access the storage (e.g. windows media player). And media uploaded in one mode is invisible to the other! So I suggest you decide how you are going to manage your media on the device, and use the clip+ settings menu to preset the mode. I use MSC. DON'T USE AUTO !

* the 'home' button also acts as a lock for the buttons, just press and hold to lock/unlock. Very useful for when its on in your pocket. I don't think this is documented!

* the screen is perfectly readable in most light conditions and displays a good amount of information about a song or radio channel. Navigation is easy.

* mp3 player has good shuffling options, and/or you can choose to play all or just an artist or just a folder.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great .... after you've reset the volume!!! 25 Aug 2010
Colour Name:Black
After buying one of these for my wife for her birthday, I asked for one but VERY nearly sent it back because of the hopeless lack of volume ... but had a quick look here to see what others had written ... sure enough, a common 'problem' imposed by some European ruling (although I think mine was set rather excessively low) - thanks to A.N.Other, the solution is to go to SETTINGS, then SYSTEM SETTINGS, then RESET FACTORY SETTINGS (accept this), then to LANGUAGE, then ENGLISH and then NORTH AMERICA. Fixed - yiphee and off to order some better headphones!!! (I suppose I will have to put up with some americanised spellings now ... ho hum!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy-Read Screen & Great iPod Alternative 6 July 2011
Colour Name:Blue
As an author and semi-pro musician I need to listen to new songs or audio books in whatever spare time I have-especially at the gym. I'm not big fan of Apple products (what heresy!) and had been using a Sony mp3 player before it died on me. I needed something which would be:

- Easy drag and drop of files (unlike the Sony player with its own tiresome software)
- Small and unobtrusive for the gym or train when travelling
- Plenty of storage for my mp3 and audio collection

Tragically now, I also needed a decent size screen so I could read it without squinting. I had to do a lot of research online to check an mp3 player as small as this would have a good size screen. I'm pleased to report that it does - no problems at all on that front. Or any other for that matter. Loading the Sansa with files is a breeze which takes seconds. It's easy to bring up the numbers you want to listen to and the fact that it clips to your shorts, top or pocket make it perfect for any kind of use as far as I can see. Groovy blue colour as well BTW...

Last couple of points re those "complaints" about volume levels and battery life. No issue for me on the latter at all. AS far as the volume is concerned, as one or two others have reported, just make sure your initial set-up is for "North America" not Europe and you can side-step the EU nannies
