http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/G/02/x-locale/common/customer-reviews/stars-5-0.gifA gem of a budget player, 8 Oct 2006

This is an excellent player for the money. I traded down from an iPod Video, and sound quality is comparable. My initial impressions were that the headphones lacked midrange, but I think this was a fault of the MP3s rather than the device itself, as I've since filled it with WMAs from a subscription music store and it sounds fantastic, and with some Shure E2Cs it sounds even better.

For a couple of pounds less, you could buy a generic player of similar capacity, but this has a couple of features I haven't found on any other player near this price:

1. You can browse your music collection by artist, or album.
2. It supports DRM protected WMAs, so supports subscription music stores.
3. It has a stopwatch, so if you go out running with it, it has all you need to time yourself...
4. ... Speaking of which, it comes supplied with a plastic case and armband.

I like the fact that it takes a AAA battery (one is supplied), as if you're not near a computer (on holiday, for instance), you're not far away from some power. And with supermarkets selling own-name batteries for as little as 12.5p per battery, it costs next to nothing to run, and battery life is excellent at upto 19 hours.

No device is perfect, though, so downsides..

1. It is a little chunky. It's very light though.

And if I'm being really picky...

2. I wish it had a clock.

All in all though, a very well deserved 5 stars.

Again no stock:x

Gets good reviews Worth waiting a couple of weeks for maybe...

Thanks edi!

I can highly recommend this player.

It is simple to use for downloads. Plug in and drag your songs in WMP.

But most of all, the sound quality, on a decent pair of headphones, is on a par with anything in the market over £100 more.

Never had a reliability problem, either, in over a year.

Perfect as a mp3 Player, if you didn't need one for everyday use or as a Christmas present for someone.

Would be interested to see if this does come with an FM Tuner, as most Sandisk products have this removed for the EU (due to higher Duty rates on devices capable of receiving radio). Even Sandisk's site suggest it would not:

FM tuner (20 preset stations)(FM Tuner not included in European Model.)

Rufus (still looking for a decent MP3 player with FM tuner)

Mine definitely DOES NOT have an FM Tuner

Also available here but backorder !!! I think quidco offers 6% with shop.com!!
