Firstly the positives:
> The Fuze+ sounds better than the original Fuze. The Fuze+ has *astonishingly good* sound quality: The precision of the treble is amazing, the low bass response is just unbelievable (much better than ipods) and the stereo image is vastly improved. In fact I now get totally convincing sounds originating round the room, so much so I keep on looking for where they are coming from! This is a major improvement over the original Fuze. (I use Ogg Vorbis at approx 224 kbps, your mileage with mp3s may vary.)
> I like the new stroke pad interface because it is totally silent. The original Fuze had quite loud clicks on the buttons which made it a bit irritating in quiet environments.
> The new firmware has player lock function on the top button which is good.
> The display is bigger and better resolution and is perfect for me.
> The battery life is very good.
Then the negatives:
> The stroke pad is just not responsive enough. Sometimes there is a real lag on this which is annoying.
> Slow start up. I have a 4GB player + 16GB card (about 3000 tracks total) and the start up time is about 1 minute. This is too long.
> There are several functions from the original Fuze which are missing: the main one for me is the ability to look at all the filename and tag details (I embed rating and other information in this). There are also several minor things like folder view which are missing.Read more ›
First, a bit of history: I've owned iPods since late 2003 when I bought a spanking new 15 GB third generation iPod. Back then, smart phones had yet to come of age and if you wanted a high-capacity MP3 player, Apple were just about the only game in town. It helped matters immensely that my iPod was so well constructed since I used it day in, day out for five years until it finally died and I replaced it with a fourth generation iPod Nano. That Nano sure *seemed* solid enough (what with its sleek, anodized aluminum body and all) but a mere year-and-a-half later it fell apart faster than Joan Crawford in a wire hanger factory (see "Mommie Dearest  [DVD]" for an explanation of that analogy). With hopes held high for an amazing sixth generation Nano, I balked at its rather stripped-down feature set and the tiny, nigh-unusable touch screen.
So, off a-shopping I did go.
Since Sony didn't appear to make a Mac-friendly Walkman, I opted to punt, snapping up the newly released Sansa Fuze+ (black, 8BG capacity). I'd known about -- and respected -- Sansa players for years as affordable and worthy iPod competitors, so this seemed the best available option.Read more ›
Oh and did I mention the sound....no?..... Awesome!!! Best player I've had and if you can get to grips with touch phones etc, don't listen to criticism about the touch pad as it so much easier to use (even with my sausage fingers!). Also to get the most out of it I would recommend reading the full manual, which is easily downloadable from their site; it will allow you to configure your player to your preference.
Go on give it a try. You will save so much over fruity products!
