Sandisk Sansa View 8GB MP3/Video Player with FM Tuner £40.00 at Asda

Found 23rd Oct 2008Made hot 24th Oct 2008
I found this instore at my local ASDA today. I have one myself and it is in my view an excellent player and they had quite a few on sale.

The Sansa View is a video MP3 player with a vast array of features and generous capacity, the sleek-looking Sansa View marries the finest MP3 player attributes with full-motion video support (typically found in larger portable media players (PMPs)), a larger screen, long battery life and generous capacityall in a thin, easy-to-carry package.

An MP3 player at its core, the Sansa View comes well equipped . The smooth, backlit scroll wheel and vibrant 2.4 widescreen display make it easy to navigate to: a music library; video collection; digital photos; digital FM radio with 20 pre-sets; an integrated microphone and voice recording, and Audible audiobooks.

don't know why people are voting cold - this seems like a very good price for a very good player if you ask me.

I have the 16gb version which I picked up for somewhere between 50 - 60 quid - I can't quite remember but it was only that price cuz it was ex-display.


Still showing £99 at argos

I just thought people were voting me cold because it was my first Post !! The player is a bargain at £40

Voted hot
Good deal , personally I would get an ipod nano, but thats just me

I voted hot.

the apple fanboys are voting cold! Deal is hot

Hot for me.

I say hot.

There you go justice is being restored

£99 at argos is a bit much though - you can get the 16gb version for £110 at currys.

could anyone who owns this post a pic of the menu? please


could anyone who owns this post a pic of the menu? please

I don't have one, but a quick search on Google found this :

These also have a MicroSD slot so you can expand the memory. Does the Nano have this?.....

Where is your local Asda?

I'm inthe CIty (london) - is there one near me.....?

Thats the menu once your in the music section, the main menu is graphical - which my GF prefers to my ipod classic - I'm not fussed either way, I got the sandisk for my dad and he finds the graphical menu much easier as does my girlfriend, if I had to choose I think I prefer the non-graphical ipod way but only just.

There are some video reviews of this online I'll post them if I can find them again.

The Micro SD slot is possible one of it's best features and unlike the creative players the intergration is very good so you can see all of your music at once and make playlists ect like it's one big memory instead of having to swap between the two.

edit - here is a link to a video showing the graphical bit of the menu the pics above are after you have selected music.



Before anyone commits to this player, goto:…iew

There are a lot of very angry Sansa View owners here. I personally have only had minor problems with my 8gb View, but Sandisk has basically abandoned this product.

Also, before someone suggests going to Rockbox for the View, it is still in early alpha development and has been forever.

£40 for this? I hope my local ASDA has this, I wouldn't mind to get this as a Christmas present for one of my siblings


No stock in Milton Keynes Asda :x

no stock in my local asda either. they did have the 4gb for £69 ish though

So no one but the OP got this? Shame as it was looking like a hot deal.

The search for a xmas pressie continues :whistling:

Managed to get my wife to pick one up at ASDA's Lakeside, Essex. Wicked deal, can't wait to get home to have a play......

Don't understand why this post has been changed to Expired???

I think people expired it cuz there was no stock near them - it tends to happen.
