This player is very small...and if you are wondering whether to go for the iPOD Nano, or the Sandisk....there is absolutely no competition. This guy wins hands down.

This player has 20 hrs battery life as opposed to the iPODs 14, it plays videos (mp4), where the iPOD doesnt. It looks really cool with the scroll wheels photon blue glow..The screen is massively bigger than the Nano, and the player is the same dimensions as the Nano (apart from depth) and the sound quality is pretty damn good.

The screen is fantastic quality, and i have hardly any issues with this player at all. The interface to add music is literally drag and drop into a removable drive, and it charges via USB.

The only qualms you may have with this item that i oculd think of are 1) You cannot make a customEQ (set your own levels of bass/treble etc) and 2)It is a bit complicated to make a "Go" or "Now Playing" list while already listening to a song. But once you figured that out its easy :)

All in all.......what more can you ask for?

I bought this e 260 a few weeks ago for my daughter and both of us think its great. She wanted an I pod, but as I cant afford the price of all the downloads she wants, this MP3 player is a better option, Sound quality is superb, standard head phones are not bad, but when played through some decent full sized phones I didn't believe MP3 could sound this good. Volume is not a problem with this version of the software, It comes set to a reduced level so as not to damage young ears but can be increased via one of the menus for deaf old ..... like me. Drag and drop, is a doddle, and using the supplied software is also great . You will need to use this to load photos and videos though, but you will be able to use the player with almost any pc, as XP recognises it as soon as you plug in as an external Drive. Controls are good and easy to use. Scroll wheel less fussy than my Ipod. Battery life is very good, although it a pity you cant listen while its charging.. The construction is high quality and although it looks a little like the last gen nano, its a much stronger better made bit of kit.
Also has the ability to store an extra 2 gb on the micro sd card which can also slip into my phone. all in all a great buy for those on a bit of a budget.

Ordered this from amazon, very impressed with it. On first use it seemed quiet (I like my music loud) but a simple download of firmware sorted that and all is good now. Had to format the player to get rid of the preloaded content. Thankfully it is very quick and easy to transfer music using Windows Media Player. It only took about 3 minutes to transfer 2GB worth of music.

Screen is great, shame you cant change the colour scheme though. Player seems tough and durable, and looks v smart especially when lit up.

Battery life seems fine though have not had the chance to test that out fully yet. All in all a fine MP3 player, v easy to use and plus's in the form of expandable memory and replaceable batteries

Only gripe is the company selling the player on Amazon's behalf just sent it in normal 1st class post .. which as I have found out is not very reliable and has potential for things to go missing.

the e260 is really good value for money, you can fit a lot of tunes on it and the quality of the video clips is suprisingly clear, i like the fact that you can sort all your music through the windows player and so adding tracks and organising it couldnt be easier, controls and navigation around the menu is also really easy - My main problem with the player and my one and only complaint is that there appears to be a fault with the headphone jack in all the players. I have had a similar problem with the Creative Zen, literally i just put my player down and the next minute it was only playing through one headphone, i returned the player and had it replaced only for the same problem to occur 3 weeks later - i think this is a common problem as i am now getting a refund. Good value, great player but dodgy headphone jack! Youve been warned!

This player beats the iPod in pretty much every aspect i can think of, Price for one is a biggie, it's a fraction of the cost of an iPod nano and apple have only just included video support on the new Nanos. Memory is another great feature, the Nanos feature set flash memory in whatever capacity you buy it in, the Sansa E260 (and all of the E2xx range) can be expanded with a MicroSD card, that could anything from an extra 512mb to another 4GB or so memory! My last favourite feature has got to be the weighted aluminium on the back though, if you hold the player in your hand and it drops out of your fingers, from the standard viewing angle at least, the player will fall on it's aluminium back so it doesn't damage the screen. And apparently the aluminium is practically indestructable, whereas the iPod touch or iPhone will have a shattered screen if dropped from higher than 33 cm.

DON'T BOTHER WITH IPODS, LOOK NO FURTHER AND ORDER THIS NOW!

I was surprised by this Mp3 player. It was very easy to use the scroll wheel is cool and just sturdy enough to not be too slight. The video playing and photo are of good quality and the sound is vey clear, Although i would recommend a better set of headphones as the ones supplied are of the usual cheap type. This little gem is all it says it is, Its only slightly thicker than a Ipod Nano and I think better quality. To load music on is quick, and you dont need any software to do it, The Sandisk can be treated as an external hard drive and drag and drop files to it, or you can set it as a device to sync with a Music program like J River media Centre etc. There is softaware supplied with this Mp3 player that will convert things like video from AVI files etc to make them playable on the unit itself. I will say that you do need to have the unit plugged in to a computer to charge it as it uses an USB lead to charge, I have found an Mp3 USB Mains charger on the net sold seperatly for £5.00 which works perfectly meaning it can be charged without the need for a computer.It also has a slot for a memory card meaning you can add more music to various memory cards and not have to buy new Mp3 player when your hard drive runs low.

If you buy one of these you will not be dissapointed.
