Bought one of these a couple of months ago for about £70. Very good player, but it does scratch quite easily, I find. Very good for the price - nice alternative to the Nano (it's thicker, but is more robust)
#2
Excellent price amibees :)

HOT ++

Scratch resistance?
Well thats what it says in the description.
Thats one of the big advantages of this site the people who actually buy and use these products can give a more accurate description than the company that is trying to sell it.
Thanks.
#4

I had one of these, the bottom is scratch resistant but sadly the top is very prone to scratches. Mine had 3 minor scratches within a couple of hours, and that was only from me removing the player from the supplied case a couple of times.

It doesn't take too long from what I remember. I used it to watch House episodes on the go and one of those might have taken maybe 10 minutes max to convert. Sorry I can't be any more specific!
I agree on the scratching - it's nothing serious but I thought I had been careful and I got some minor scratches on it anyway. Those of you who live in London - check out HMV Oxford Circus (second floor). I got a case there for my e270 two days ago for 1 pound, marked down from 6! :thumbsup:

I'd recommend the player overall, though. It can be a bit harder to press some of the buttons because of the way the wheel is made but it's still a great deal at the price (and at the 60-something I got it for a few months ago off HUKD :) ).

cheap and desirable, but bad reviews on Amazon put me off.

Will wait for another offer from Creative.

thank tho

The new Ipod Nano (4GB) priced at around £99 is a better buy than this Sandisk for the following reasons ( (unless you really really cant afford the extra £40):
1. Apple is better in quality (design, sound, supplied earphones quality).
2. New Nano is considerably thinner, shorter with wider screen than other players of the same size/capacity with excellent screen quality for videos
3. Doesn't hurt to flaunt a fashion brand (Apple).
Not voting cold on the above as it does seem like a good deal on a 6GB utility MP3 player (if utility is the priority).

Your new Nano has just been blown out of the water by the Sandisk Sansa View. Smacked hands down on price, features, capacity.

I put in the Ipod Nano for comparison with the original deal (Sansa e270), if you say Sansa View is good, that automatically supports the fact that this posted deal for e270 is not that great.
I have just bought the new Nano (and have owned a Zen too in the past). If you don't mind not having the FM (I travel on the tube and can't get FM anyway), the Nano is so small and sleek that it is all set to become a fashion icon yet again.
Not only is the Sansa View TWICE as long and 35% thicker (which is significant), it also weighs twice as much as the Nano. Sansa View - 82 gm and thick is like carrying another mobile phone, New Nano - 42 gm and thin fits into your wallet!
Also, the screen of the Nano is wider and bigger (a BIG consideration for any sort of video viewing). Also, I haven't seen the video quality on Sansa view, but the videos on Nano are fabulous. Add to it the variety of colours available and the fact that you would happily want to flaunt it as an Ipod does it for me.
Don't want to start an Ipod v/s others war here, but the Ipod comparison was just to show how £56 for the e270 isn't all that great, unless price really is a constraint.

But this review isn't of the Hot deal here tho is it?

edit: no clearly not!

Where can we get this new one then that blows things out of the water?!
#13
I didn't think it was even out, and there were rumours it was never going to be released (the View that is).

It's all good and well talking about something else blowing the Nano out of the water, but if you can't buy it then it can't be compared.

I got one of these last time Amazon had them on sale It's a nice looking player, but I wish I'd have stayed with creative.

You have to flash it to the US firmware if you actually want any volume (although I realise that's probably personal preference). It can be buggy at times and sometimes arranges music however it feels, despite how it's tagged. It is drag and drop but then it sorts everything as album/artist so if you have a folder with a collection of songs from various artists you have to use software to create a play list. I have gotten around that by tagging all the mp3's in such folders by genera and not artist name, makes it easier to navigate through the player.

I realise this is all easy gotten around, but before I got this I was used to dragging a folder onto my creative and selecting the folder I wanted to play. After that this seems a bit of an effort.

All that said once you actually get your music loaded and sorted how you want, it's simple to use and sounds good. And since I paid £70 for it not two months ago, I vote hot.

As for scratches, I've had mine a few months and don't have any at all.

Sansa View

The Sansa View was SanDisk's attempt at a portable media player, and had a 4-inch screen, built-in speaker and an expansion slot for SD cards. On June 1, 2007, SanDisk announced that the Sansa View has been shelved.

On September 9, 2007, SanDisk revived the Sansa View, but in name only. The new player is an update to the Sansa e200.


Different product, same name :)

Anyway, the e270 is less than half the price of the new nano's (It cant really be compared with the 4GB model, especially the memory on the sansa is expandable) so im this deal is hot IMO :)
