Customer Reviews

The sound is very loud and very good.
Also it is easy to "drag and drop" MP3s to the player like adding files to a Hard drive.
Brian S. Tatman
It will return to the beginning of the track, no matter the length of the track.

Verified Purchase
I reduce my stars to three for most people, but four or five for me since I listen to Audible books 90% of the time with the MP3 player.

I really liked what I heard about this player for audiobooks until I saw the review that said that it does not bookmark. I thought so, too, but I discovered all you have to do is press the Play button and it brings you back to where you left it. (see details below of the steps, but they are
1. Turn off while playing
2. Turn on.
3. Press play. Starts where you left off.

The sound is beautiful. It is the only flash drive player I have found that handles Audible format 4 which is the highest and is comparable to MP3. The next lower is format 3 and is comparable to FM radio. Format 3 is the standard for most. I tried it with NetLibrary audiobooks which is available from a number of public libraries. I had the same problems with the Sansa that I have had with the Creative Muvo (see below) so I think it is the NetLibrary format.

Volume Knob
I did not find the volume knob hard to use when it was out of the case. I have not tried it in the case.

There is a trick to get the player out of the case. It goes into the case top first so the top of the player is at the top of the case. All you have to do is press with a little pressure on the the top of the case - toward the bottom of th case - to ease it out of the bottom of the case.

The elapsed and remaining time digits are WAY, WAY too small.

Additional information on the bookmark. I am beginning to suspect that there are different versions of the firmware on different ones.

Works with Audible Audiobooks
Here is what I am able to do consistently.

The Sansa E140 isn't going to win over anybody who is looking for a fashion accessory that plays music or those who tend to stop the minute they hit a learning curve. It is a nifty little flash based 1GB MP3/WMA player, expandable by 2MB with an SD card, but it has some noteworthy quirks, some of which are fixed by up to date firmware. You are going to have to decide if those quirks are enough to make you look elsewhere.

Physically, the E140 is a little less than credit card sized, and as thick as an AA battery. It's all plastic, with a screen about as big as a standard SD card. There is a centered button on the front, surrounded by four select buttons that are under the plastic face of the Sansa. The right side has an SD card slot, a Menu button and the scroll wheel up on top. The left side has a sliding switch to lock the other controls. A mini jack and five pin mini USB connector sit on top. The back of the Sansa has the AAA battery compartment with a slide on cover at the bottom of the player. The rubber covers for the USB connector and SD slot are not tethered, so you have to be vigilant or you'll lose them.

Other goodies that come with the player include a clear plastic case, armband, battery, sparse printed instructions, short USB cord, ear bud headphones and a mini CD with more detailed instructions and some offers from music/e-book vendors.

Thoughts on the above: The scroll wheel has subtle clicks when you turn it, and some folks have found it stiff to operate. I didn't find that to be true. The wheel is used as the volume control and an option to navigate the menus, if you choose not to use the buttons up front. The buttons are fairly positive.

I've had the player for a few weeks now and I'm really liking it alot. I owned an ipod before (battery problems and not capable of making on-the-fly playlists) ; a creative zen xtra (love it, alot a space, capable of making playlists on the player, intuitive design and functioning, just too heavy and could be little smaller)

Major Pros:
*plug and play
*cool design and interface, blue blacklight
*Expansion slot, reads up to 2GB
*Very small and light weight
*No internal battery, just one AAA battery
The player reads a variety of track properties: artist, album, song, genre, year, etc...what does this mean, all the more categories to filter and sort music and ways to create playlists
*Extensive sound settings

I like the sandisk because it has an expansion slot, so I could get a 2gb sd card and extend my memory to 3 gigs, or even get a couple. It uses AAA batteries that I can simply and conveniently purchase at a local store. I dont have to keep hoping that my player retains enough charge to last me until I can reach home or find an outlet.
The sound quality is good, the fm radio quality works well for me.

Making playlists:
Before I figured it out, this was my major complaint, all else was well. This is how you do it:

1. On your computer organize your songs in labeled folders. These folders will represent your playlists, so for convenient organizing, the name you will give a playlist give the same name to the folder that contain the songs.

2. Open the folder, then "select all"

3. After selecting all, right click and select "properties"
