Sansa Fuze 8gb MP3 Player Black
A great little device that in my opinion is a better and cheaper alternative to the ipod Nano. Another advantage is that it doesn't tie you to itunes.
In MSC mode you can drag and drop your files just like a USB memory stick and works under Windows XP / Vista, Linux or MAC OS. That or use WINAMP or similar to sync to it.
It has expandable memory which fully integrates with the main memory if you run out of space.
Its styling and size are very similar to the Nano, but maybe not quite as stylish if that sort of thing bothers you. That said, the build quality feels good in the hand and the rubber mechanical wheel has a much nicer feel to it than a touch sensitive interface.
The screen is nice and clear with an easy to use graphical interface. Again maybe not as stylish or as high resolution as the Nano but devices of this type are primarily for audio and maybe looking at a few photos. I wouldn't fancy watching much more than a short video clip on a screen of this size.
Audio quality is a bit subjective but most reviews out there praise the Fuze for its audio quality. I can't disagree with them!
Just replace the earphones that come with it. Not very comfortable and could be of better quality. I bought a pair of Creative Labs EP-630s which are quite good for the price. I can also recommend the Sennheiser PX100 headphones if you prefer not to have something wedged in your ears!
Since its recent firmware update it's worth mentioning that there is improved file support now including "Ogg Vorbis" and "FLAC".
Details of file support as of last update:-
MP3, OGG, FLAC, WMA, secure WMA, WAV, Audible, MPEG4
