SanDisk Sansa...got one?

Postby IrisBrandybuck » Thu Oct 11, 2007 10:09 am

Ok, I recieved enough money for my birthday to seriously consider buying a high end music player. I know I don't want an iPod...and I was looking at the Zune, but they don't support Wal-Mart downloads.

So, now I'm looking at the SanDisk Sansa.

Anyone have one? What do you think? Any other suggestions?

Hiya Iris!

I have a SanDisk Sansa that I bought earlier this year. I need a voice recorder and something I could easily load interviews onto a computer and playback via headphones as well. I do use it for music as well but stupidly as I have ITunes it doesn't play all my music. It has worked well for me, held up well through all the hauling around, banging about and humid countries it has been, and records interviews very nicely.

I don't know how "high-end" it is though.. it seems a bit rough around the edges, and difficult sometimes to manuvre through (but that could be me). What had been recommended to me was a brand called .. and rats I've forgotten exactly what it was called.. something River.. I think IRiver, and it was suppose to be quite good. It just had a bit of a price tag associated with it so it will be a later purchase for me.. as in it will be bought when I have a job and am no longer a freakin grad student.. ;)

Good luck with the search!:)

Thanks, tuile, that's really helpful. I have a digital recorder I purchased at Staples, so I probably wouldn't need it for that, but if it holds up well, that's important to me...I tend to drop things on a regular basis. :)

I have one, but it inexplicably busted about two months after getting it and the company was not cooperative about finding what was wrong with it or getting it fixed, so be careful and make sure you've got a good warranty wherever you get it from

Well if you drop that sansa, Creative, the people who make PC sound cards, have some nice Mp3 players over a wide range of features (and cost).

and they're known for their good sound, which is the single most important thing for a music player to have, of course.
