Edi, please stop posting such good deals. :giggle:
The fact that you can add a 2GB microSD card which cost about £15 to give you an 8GB player for £82 is tempting. I wonder if microSD is limited to 2GB in the way that ‘standard’ SD cards are!
I’m going to research the size and weight to see how it compares to a Nano. One thing is for sure; it will make my Zen Xtra 60GB look like a brick. :w00t:
Here’s a review at CNet: 8.0 from reviewer and 7.2 from 90 users.

got the 2 gig version, and its brilliant, and that cost me a ton last year :(
#4
Is this a very, very good deal?
Had a quick look and it seems to be around £100 everywhere else?

Am I missing something?
#5
Does anyone actually have this? I've seen a few reviews say it isn't loud enough. Is that true? I have a creative 4gig muvo and when I got that the euro firmware had a volume limiter on it, thankfully changing to the US firmware sorted that. But I'd hate to be stuck with a player that's too low. But I'm really tempted by this, especially since you can expand the memory.
#6
The European version has the FM radio disabled to reduce the import duty costs. I wonder if you can install a US firmware to enable it.
#7
reports I have read say that you can get US firmware, which will ease any sound problems, but there is nothing you can do to re-enable the fm radio:(
#8
Does this work on a Mac? I am interested in this, as its a good name and looks the part!

Does the centre button move at all like the iPod?
Does the software convert the files or can you drag and drop?
Whats the battery life like?

The good: The SanDisk Sansa e200 series combines copious features such as subscription compatibility, an FM tuner/recorder, voice recording, and photo and video playback into a compact and durable device. We like the tactile navigation wheel, as well as the well-designed software interface. The user-removable battery and the Micro SD slot are nice touches, and the device has decent sound quality, processor performance, and battery life. Finally, the Sansa e200 series has a maximum base capacity of 8GB, and it offers a competitive price in the high-stakes world of high-capacity flash players.

The bad: No AC adapter in package; the buttons surrounding the SanDisk Sansa e200's scrollwheel can be difficult to press; the mechanical scrollwheel can tire out some thumbs; photos and video must go through conversion with bundled software; the expansion slot can be used with music only, not photos or other media or data; and recordings are made only in WAV. The scrollwheel is not as easy to use as the iPod Click Wheel. Low levels of system noise can heard through headphones at low or zero volume.

The bottom line: The SanDisk Sansa e200 series offers a boatload of features for a reasonable price, in a package that is much nicer than that of past SanDisk models. For those looking for a high-capacity, compact, skip-free MP3/WMA player, start with the e200 series.

It says XP only on the Sandisk website:

B****x!!!
But again, im sure, no mac support :x
#12
I think these are great, but I'm probably gonna go for a Meizu M6.
#13
Just read that its picked up on a Mac as a storage device... just drag and drop the music across, and its done. Says that its just for music... Pictures and Vids need converting (with the software), but im sure there is a way around it ;)

Ordered one! Thanks and rep added
#14
Will no doubt be fine on a Mac, you can use the freeware iSquint to convert files.

Where can you find one?
#16
Thanks for this edi :)
#17
Should work fine on a Mac - you simply need to configure the player to work in mass storage device mode (Rather than media player device or something which is the default).

Bought the 8GB one, agree with most of the downsides listed above although another issue at least with this particular one is some dust seems to have managed to get into the display. Don't regret it at all though, love just being to drag and drop my music from any PC.

Ive got this and it is great, battery lasts for ever, the sound is quiet when you first purchase but once you flash it with the latest firmware you get much louder sound. Ive not tried to get the radio back on as i dont need it. the buttons and scroll wheel are easy to use.

This should work on any OS as it is just drag and drop, but i think that the video converter is only on Windows. But to be honest with a player this small it is pointless watching videos on it. I prefer this alot more than my iPod 20gig.
#19
Showing up as £72.14 delivered and from market place :-(
#20
you sure you're clicking the right one? It defaults to a marketplace seller, but Amazon is still in there among them. Its one is "more expensive", but you don't have to pay marketplace shipping (if you do supersaver) so it's still cheaper.

4-6 weeks delivery now.

Cheers,voted hot.
Ordered one for the daughter who had her Sony Walkman nicked from school and broke her ipod nano...hopefully this one will last abit longer..

This is only a problem with the original firmware. Bypass this problem and many others by installing Rockbox on your Sansa ([url]www.rockbox.org[/url])

Eh...? I thought you couldn't use video features or the additional mini sd with Rockbox at all.

wolfman - that status page is out of date. not sure if its been committed yet but theres a working patch here for microSD access:

video plays fine - ive got some will & grace eps on mine in mpeg format that play flawlessly
#28
How long (typically) is battery life with Rockbox on the Sansa? Does it improve, or worsen (or stay the same)?
1 Like #29
Its very good. Not noticably worse. There is a thread about it in the Rockbox forums (cant seem to find it now) where everyone seems to have only good things to say about battery life on the Sansa port. I assume it will only get better when the Rockbox team find out how to totally power down the PortalPlayer chip. But for now I dont find it an issue.

Personally I've now stopped using the original firmware all together, because for me, the Sansa port of Rockbox now surpasses the original firmware in all aspects. To my ears, sound is now better than the original firmware. That is of course with crossfeed, crossfade, replaygain and dithered output enabled - advanced audio features that the original firmware is never probably likely to ever get.

In my eyes, the only big remaining gripe with the excellent Sansa port of Rockbox is the fact that it cant yet connect via USB (at time of writing) - you still have to use the original firmware (OF) for transferring files. Rockbox is continually developing so I'm happy to wait for the developers to find a way to implement this feature. The latest Rockbox bootloader does automatically boot into the OF if you have the USB cable connected at boot time though - a handy work-around. Charging does seem to work via USB in Rockbox though.

Also worth mentioning... I've read on the Rockbox forums (thread I linked to above) that it may be possible for Rockbox to support HC MicroSD cards.. turn that 8gb player into a 16gb player basically.
[mod]#30
Many thanks for all that detailed extra info Rowan, great report and great news.
#31
I bought the 8Gb version from Amazon recently after having decided to buy it over the rivals such as the iPod Nano and the Zen V.

You won't be disappointed, it's a great player.

For those of you who mentioned the volume, the latest firmware update (you don't need the US version, the European one has it) has an option in the Settings to have the volume set Normal or High. When set to Normal it can indeed be a little low but when set to High it is fine.
#32
Some goodies available here.
american site but might give a clue to what is available.

Took the plunge and ordered one to replace my Zen Vision M. Thanks to the OP for the details. Nice Find.

Has anyone tried using a micro sd card larger than 2gb? You can get 8gb ones now and I'm sure they'll soon go up to 16gb. I'm just wondering if it will support this?

MicroSD is currently limited to 2GB I believe.
Standard SD cards are available larger than 2GB but they are SDHC format and not all SD devices support those.
I imagine SDHC microSD cards will be available if they aren't already, but the same problem with compatibility will very likely exist here as well.
#36
Got mine today. Nice bit of kit. Paired it with a pair of Sennheiser CX300's and it kicks arse :D
#37
Anyone know of a decent mains charger for this? Saw one that claimed to be compatible on Amazon but the review said it f'd up the sansa, obviously not a risk I wanna take.
#38
Hi, I have received my sansa excellent deal by the way and have received the cx300's which sound amazing. However if I move the phono connection then I notice that the volume from one of the headphones drops for example is this normal or do I have faulty headphones or worse yet a faulty sansa???

For the adaptor question just go to ebay and type UNIVERSAL BLACK USB MAINS CHARGER FOR IPOD + MANY MORE I bought this one and is perfect.

I had the exact same problem with the original CX300's I bought. I returned them and got a new pair which are fine.
