Superb little player. Nice and solidly built. Clean and simple user interface. Cracking sound. Ogg support too, with the latest firmware (if you like that sort of thing).
#3
bumfaces! this was only 42.99 without the card last week, in which case you couldve got a 12gb(4+8) for ~£54

just waiting for thrift club money to come through and now its gone up!

hot deal from current prices though!

lmaolmao,

Is it possible to browse via album art on this as opposed to just showing the album art after you've chosen the artist/album/track?
#5
No option for browsing album art unfortunately. The screen is pretty small for album art anyway. You're talking ipod nano sized and not great resolution. It's all about the sound here though.
#6
I just got one of these, still looks to be the best deal around by far. A close call between this and the clip though.
#7
Do these mp3 players seem alright then?

My mum needs a new one this will be number 3 she is on, her 1st didn't have a screen which wasn't much use 4 her. So it needs to be mum friendly she's not very technical minded.

Get her an ipod, thats about as user friendly as mp3 players come and what I got my mum to get a while ago.

Good point! To clarify I meant the best deal by far on the Fuze version, i've checked quite a few websites and didn't see anything as cheap. I decided this was the version for me as its got the expandable memory and a bigger screen. The Sansa Clip is cheaper however and very highly regarded.
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/286114/sansa-clip-silver-8gb-with-fm-radio/

These are much easier to use than ipods in my opinion because you don't have to do everything through itunes. All pretty straight forwards.
#11
Ok folks

The Fuze is a FANTASTIC little player ive litterally just picked one up for myself (8gb+4gb card) on ebay for 60. so this is a great deal.

Better than ipods for the following reasons:

1) Better audio processor
2) Built in FM radio
3) Expandable Memory via High-Capacity Micro SD (so when 32gb cards become affordably priced you can stick one of them in there.
4) No need for Itunes, just drag and drop like a standard USB memory stick
5) 24 hr battery life.

It also has a real easy to use interface, displace album art and has a simple equaliser that can be used. New firmware was released this week aswell.

Great build quality and great size.

for those who are torn between this and the clip:

The clip has no screen (akin to this, colours images etc) just an OLED screen to navigate text menus
The clip is however much smaller and better for use at the gym
The fuze feels much better in build quality, feels weighty and very nice really

I whole heartedly reccomend the Fuze.

anyone else with questions fire me a PM and i will do my best to answer.

The main thing is that the Zen doesn't incorporate any music on the SD cards it takes with the music thats actually on the player. As such to access music you put on an SD card you have to go via a seperate menu (not the music menu) to get to it.

The Zen is a great player, but if you are looking for value and storage size go for the Sansa.

I actually ordered this deal a couple of weeks ago for my Mum, I loaned her my older Sansa E280 which she liked but the main wheel was lose and kept putting the volume up. I have a Fuze myself and as I think it's an excellent player, she was keen to have one herself.

I'd agree with the points below, the sound chip is excellent (noticeable step up from its predecessor), the batterylife is very good and masas storage support means you can connect it to anything and just drop your music in. It also integrates the SD card far better than some of the other mp3 devices, it builds the music list from both the internal memory and the SD card to give you one continuous list. The interface is very similar to the Ipod's, they've ripped it off entirely so it's just as easy to use.

There are some annoyances though, there's no quick way to flick through the list which means when you get a lot of tracks on there it can take a while to get to the lower half. Unlike the E200 series the battery is non-replaceable plus it still has a proproetary USB cable.

Sansa's kit is generally very good. However, you might be best off going for the 8gb clip for forty quid from Currys/PC World. Or perhaps even the Sansa E260 which is a 4GB player, but which has a battery you can change.

NO.

The E2xx Series were really Shoddy (having owned one and having a partner who owned the same) and besides i dont know what you are on about, the battery in the E2xx series charges the same way as the Fuze does.....

EmArid: Haviing just read your post, i think you would be best off going with the Fuze. it has a large screen (compared to its size) and is super easy to navigate. a toddler could work this player to be honest.
#17
I got a clip 8gb for the same price in Currys
Fantastic little player that plays anything you throw at it without all that extra software agro. The sound is the best I've heard for a dinky little thing like this.
Helpful review if you are trying to decide which to buy...

He said change, not charge ;) The Fuze unfortunately doesn't have a user replaceable battery.

Haha my bad! thats what you get for reading posts late at night when i should be in bed!

#20
Does this happen to have a loop so you can put it on a neckstrap by any chance?

Thanks for your help!
All the best,

The latest firmware has resolved the scrolling issue so now you can fly through the tracks.

This is an excellent player, I have the 8gb Silver model which came to me as a gift from overseas, far better than the Ipod's.
If you are looking for a quality MP3 player then this will not disappoint you.

My 10 yr old daughter asked for a shuffle for Xmas but I told her I didn't think they were worth it as you can't choose which tracks you want to listen to.

I told her I would see what I could find for a similar price.

I couldn't decide between the Creative Zen 4GB and the Fuze. Then I started reading the reviews and started thinking will she ever use the video playback.

At the moment I'm leaning towards the 2GB clip which is only £20 with Amazon.

If you go for the clip, you won't regret it. Brilliant for the price:thumbsup:

Superb, will have a look at the update now - thanks.

Actually bought that 8GB clip today as for 40 quid that's a bargain even though I have the Fuze.

Thanks for all the comments. Thats given me food for thought.

Caved in last night and all things considered we opted for the blue fuze, £47.49 using the RAC code. Thanks for your comments.
#29
Ordered this for my sister (in pink). Hope it comes in time for xmas. Does look like a good little player.

There's quite a good review and little video of the Fuze here: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2008/03/sandisk-sansa-fuze-review.php
