Product Description

Product Description

When it first came out, the Sansa Connect 4GB boasted unique WiFi features providing unlimited access to free music downloads anywhere you had Internet connectivity. This groundbreaking music access was supported by Yahoo! Music. Then Yahoo! Music sold out to Rhapsody and stopped supporting the Sansa Connect, effectively disabling this device's WiFi functionality. The Sansa Connect is still an attractive, durable, intuitive MP3 player but now requires you to connect to a computer to add and remove music/video/photos.

Amazon.com

The Sansa Connect MP3 player features 4 GB memory, a MicroSD slot for capacity expansion, a 2.2-inch TFT color screen for viewing your music library and photos, and an internal speaker. Measuring 2.05 x 3.58 x 0.63 inches (WxLxH) and weighing in at 2.7 ounces, the Connect won't weigh you down.

Customer Reviews

Hopefully upcoming firmware and Yahoo updates will fix the issues mentioned.

You HAVE to use Yahoo's Music Jukebox software to put songs onto your Connect unless you have a MiniSD card in which case it's drag and drop.

I take my player to the GYM and it's great to be able to tune in to Internet radio which offers an endless supply of music.

I've had the Connect for about a week now, and have now acquired a library of about 600 songs, about half of which I had never heard of before. I'm totally blown away by its paradigm-shifting technology.

With a WI-FI connection the Sansa Connect plays Internet radio, and if you like a song that is playing, you can download that track or album, as well as make a playlist from other songs that are similar in style. This is my favorite feature--it has introduced me to music that I would never have heard of otherwise, in genres ranging from Ambient House to Uber Indie. Before I go to sleep, I initiate the download process from the genres I like, and in the morning, I have a bunch of new tracks to listen to, which I can then play without having a WI-FI connection.

The sound quality is very good. I believe it encodes the tracks at 192K. Not as hi-fidelity as a vinyl encoded at 320K, but almost as good as a CD.

You can also recommend songs, and that will affect which songs get downloaded, as well as which songs it plays on the Internet Radio.

The user-interface is very intuitive. I can now almost operate the unit with my eyes closed.

My only complaint is that the headphone jack is right next to the USB port, at the bottom of the unit, instead of on the side.

Much of the pleasure from the unit comes the discovery of new music. If you are a "Life is the Journey, not the Destination" kind of person, then this player is definitely for you.

Here are a two features that would be nice to have:
1. download a specific song
2. playlist management: move and copy tracks to other playlists

The firmware will be automatically updated through the WI-FI connection, so hopefully they'll add these features shortly.

About a year ago I got a subscription to Yahoo Music Unlimited To Go for my wife. She loves music and had started using iTunes, but at $0.99/song I could see the bill adding up fast. Yahoo's subscription model made sense financially, as she could copy most of their catalog to a portable device without paying to burn it to a CD (with cassette adapters and cars with built-in aux jacks who needs to do that any more?).

I bought her a Creative Zen Micro and had a little trouble getting it to work with Yahoo Music Unlimited, but eventually I got music transferred on to it. Since then it's been hit or miss. It seems that whenever she needs it most, e.g. traveling, there would be a license error. Same thing with transferring music...we've had to relicense music several times.

The subscription to Yahoo is nearly up so we've been debating whether or not to renew. To get every song in her collection on iTunes would cost well over $1000 so we were reluctant to switch. Still, she was tired of the hassle of getting music to play and I was tired of trying to get things to work together.

Then I happened to stumble across the SanDisk Sansa Connect. I read up on it and thought we'd give it a try before throwing in the towel. I'm glad we did - it works great!

Getting set up was easy. It took less than 5 minutes to get it connected to our wireless network and to connect my wife to her Yahoo account. The only trouble was the configuration of my wireless network. I had SSID broadcast set to off and the Sansa Connect requires it to be on, even after you connect to your network once. A small compromise - hopefully they'll address this in an update.

The interface is easy to use and intuitive.

Verified Purchase
Been using this device for about a month. Here's my summarized pro/con list:

PROS
1. Simple to setup and stream Internet radio
2. Two click download of songs/albums
3. Wireless license synch
4. Can skip songs heard on Internet Radio
5. Sign up with Mastercard on Yahoo and receive 2 years for the price of 1

CONS
1. Cannot create playlists on the device (must download from Yahoo either cabled or wireless)
2. Micro SD cannot hold Yahoo Music - can only hold your personal music
3. Downloads on player synch to desktop - but not vice versa
4. Deleting music on player does not delete on desktop and vice versa
5. Average sound volume

What I like the most about this device is the WIFI. I take my player to the GYM and it's great to be able to tune in to Internet radio which offers an endless supply of music.

I would really like to see a complete synch between the player and the desktop -- so that music I deleted on either device was reflected on both.

Update: 9/9/2007 - I've been using this device for another few months and still enjoy it just as much as when I first bought it. You must subscribe to Yahoo Music to really get all the benefits (use [...]/mastercard for a special 2 for 1 deal). As with all devices that use DRM, the player shows a tendancy to want to renew licenses at the weirdest time (as in when you are far away from a computer connection that would enable you to do so). There definitely needs to be a renewal date added to these devices so that we could synch them before leaving for an extended trip.
