Product Description

Amazon.com

The Sansa Express MP3 Player is the world's first cable-less, flash-based MP3 player with a microSD expansion slot. It includes an FM tuner, a built-in microphone, voice and radio recording, a bright four-line OLED screen, and intuitive controls for quick navigation.

Everything you need to enjoy digital music.
No cables necessary.
Compact design to go anywhere you go.

Fits Any Lifestyle
The Sansa Express connects directly to your computer's USB port. That means no extra cables to add to your already-cluttered desktop (if you do require a cable, an extension USB cable is included). Weighing less than an ounce and about the size of a pack of chewing gum, the Express can easily go anywhere you go.

Full-Featured MP3 Player
The Sansa Express supports MP3, WMA, protected WMA, WAV, and Audible file formats. It includes 2 GB of flash memory, along with a microSD slot to expand your capacity and provide music portability. It also supports most subscription music stores.

Enjoy FM Radio--Now or Later
The Sansa Express features a digital FM radio tuner and the ability to record radio broadcasts. Keep that interview or song for later reference. Program up to 20 of your favorite stations as presets.

Voice Recording
Have a thought you need to get down before it evades you? Use the built-in microphone to record voice memos.

Sweet Simplicity
Once connected to your computer, the Express is detected by your operating system and appears as additional drive. Simply drag and drop your music files to the Express and you're ready to go. The lithium polymer battery is also recharged while the device is connected, giving you up to 15 hours of use at full capacity. The device is compatible with Windows XP and Vista, and requires Windows Media Player 10 or later.

What's in the Box
Sansa Express Player, Headphones, Lanyard, USB Extension Cable, and Quick Start Guide.

Very good sound quality.
M. Zhu
It does some very annoying things - like for example, it often doesn't remember settings, so every time you turn it on, you have to adjust the volume to your liking.

This is the slickest, easiest to use, and most intuitive electronic device I've ever purchased. The sound is fantastic, it easily charges from the computer's USB 2.0 port, the flash drive holds over 500 songs, and the tiny screen is easily read with these 65 year old eyes. I can't believe all the function built into this tiny device. If you're considering a non-video MP3 player you would be hard pressed to find a better choice for $80. I know I couldn't.

PS: It works great with the free MS Windows Media Player 11.0!

Very affordable and great quality music in a tiny package. I use the device to play music in my car, for jogging, and just anywhere else. I believe this is the best product out there for its particular category.

I recommend buying the 2 gb version because a 1 gb expansion card costs just about the same compared to the difference between the 1 gb and 2 gb versions of this product.

Only a few notes:
The shuffle option does not seem to spread out music from their initial alphabetical-order well.

A few minor problems of not turning on or freezing, but this occurs after unplugging the device from a computer or initially turning it on. The problems do not occur during playback. A "hard reset" fixes everything. When I bought this product, I noticed bad reviews, but I also noticed reviews that explained how to circumvent problems noted in the bad reviews. A "hard reset" was the answer in their reviews and the answer from my own experience as well.

I've been very pleased w/ this little unit after a month of use now. The ability to plug it into any system and drag-drop is a huge plus for me. I don't like having to install software just to manage a MP3 player. I've not measured the battery life but it's impressive. I listen to audio books frequently on it and it starts up mid-track, right where I left off, very nice. The mirror finish front picks up prints etc but they wipe off w/ a finger swipe and it hasn't scratched yet, seems durable.

The concept and application of the direct USB conncection (cordless) seemed like a dream (with 4 kids and 3 or 4 devices per kid, USB cords and chargers are taking over our lives!), as did the elongated rectangular shape (I could tuck it anywhere for transportation) and sleek design; indeed, these factors WERE a dream, for a week. Spontaneously, the device failed to power up, even though fully charged, and failed, as well, to be recognized by my computer. Before purchase, I read at least one review whose writer had the precise problem, but I did not pay much attention; now I wish I would have taken it to heart. The disappointment didn't stop there: the most frustrating part of the deal was SanDisk customer/technical support. After spending literally hours on the phone with non-English speaking tech representatives who spilled out worthless memorized solutions, applying all their suggested updates and other fixes with no success, and losing every bit of data on the device, their final offer was this: try to get a reimbursement from Amazon. SanDisk, even after admitting its product was faulty, will reimburse and/or replace the product ONLY after the retailer (in this case, Amazon) refuses to replace. Even though I anticipate no trouble acquiring an Amazon solution, I will not be purchasing another SanDisk product--WOULD YOU?!??! Resist the "too good to be true" qualities of this Sansa Express; go for one of the tried and true brands, like Apple--if that one fails, at least you'll have customer service to back you.

Without mentioning the poor / total lack of compatibility with other devices (it just crashes when I connect it to my in-car mp3 stereo using the usb connector); The main problem with this player is that it can't read mp3 ID3 tags. As its entire library system is based on tags, it only works properly in shuffle mode.
You always end with a lot of music sorted as unknown artist / unknown album.
As it can't find the track number on e-books, the chapters come in the wrong order. I got so sick of it that I went back to Creative...

You probably won't find a better MP3 player for the price. While it has its flaws and occasionally buggy performance, the combination of size and features more than compensates for its shortcomings imo.

Pros:
1. Small size
2. Direct USB connection - no need to carry a USC cable around with you (although it comes with a small USB extension cable for use if you need it)
3. Doubles as a USB drive - I have had no problems storing all kinds of files on it
4. Syncs well with Windows Media Player or simply by drag and drop
5. FM player and recorder
6. Charges fairly quickly from computer
7. Decent battery life
8. Good sound quality
9. Micro SD expandable memory slot

Cons:
1. Prone to occasional glitches such as screen freezes (I found that connecting it to a live USB port will fix these problems)
2. Sound quality of FM recording is average at best
3. FM radio appears to mainly use headphones as antenna - may need to find the right pair of headphones for best FM signals
4. User interface could be slightly better

The headphones that come with the device provide decent sound and FM radio signal but are not comfortable (to me). I purchased another pair immediately. I would update the device's software as soon as you get it to improve reliability. Use the device lock and remember to turn it off when you're done using it to avoid the battery from running out - it is easy to turn on accidentally.
