I bought my Sansa View 16GB two weeks ago and I am mostly satisfied. After downloading the latest firmware (.06A) I found most of the initial quirks have been addressed. First, you will notice the construction which is very solid and, despite those who think the Sansa View is ugly, I find it elegant. The size is very appropriate, fitting easily in the palm, without feeling huge and not so small you will fumble and drop it (i.e. Zen V!) Other reviewers have complained about the menu icons......This is really foolish since I did not purchase the View for it's "flashy" icons. Look it...the icons are obvious and glide smoothly along the screen in conjunction with the rotation of the data wheel. The video functionality is very good. I use a Neuros MPEG Recorder II and it works flawlessly. I have had a bit of trouble with syncing videos with WMP 10, but I would sooner blame Microsoft not the Sansa View. The downloaded Sansa Media Converter utility is not the best software, taking a long time to transcode files and lacking a lot of file support but I have many applications for this so it's not a problem. Music files transfer easily with WMP with fast transfer speeds. (USB 2) It's important, however, to make sure that "one off" downloaded songs and such are properly tagged, otherwise they will end up difficult to find. The sound quality of the Sansa View is exceptional with no clicking, pops, or distortion. Volume levels are easily able to get above noisy environments, even without isolation type ear buds. The equalizer functions very well and your settings are held in memory. Building playlists can be done with WMP or simply on the View. Browse your tunes and just press and hold the center function button and the song gets added to the playlist.Read more ›
I've read some pretty negative reviews about this thing, but now that I own one, I don't know why these people are knockin it. I don't think it is cheaply made, it feels pretty sturdy and it is indeed gorgeous. I didn't really have to read the manual to get this thing to work. I just plugged it into the USB port on my laptop and dragged and dropped my music folders and movies into the device. You don't have to install any drivers to get this thing to work either. I love how it displays the album art. The earbuds it comes with are pretty crappy. I replaced the stock earbuds with a pair of gunmetal black V-MODA Vibe ear canal headphones ($75.00 from Amazon) and this MP3 players sounds pretty damn amazing. People have knocked this thing for poor audio quality. You can't buy a 200 dollar mp3 player and use a pair of cheapo headphones. Buy a decent set and I guarantee you will be impressed with the sound. I am also impressed with the FM Tuner, I'm in Kuwait and it picks up the U.S. military AFN radio network with awesome clarity, my alarm clock radio hardly picks up the signal but my View picks it up perfectly and it sounds great. The voice recorder works and I have fun recording myself saying absolutely ridiculous things. Video looks great as well! I have watched Bruce Almighty on this thing. While the screen size is small, the picture is damn fine! I can't comment on using a music service because I don't use one at all. Inside the package comes with a mini CD that has some Best Buy Music Service on the disk. This is the only thing on the disk, no drivers or anything, junk IMPO.Read more ›
If you're looking for a media player (music, video, or other) and don't want to pay out the wazoo for some iThing, then this is you're BEST bet! Not only does it do everything that the Apple Pods do, but it also has FM radio and voice recorder. Also, ya get more GB for your buck. Compared to 8 GB in the Nano, you get double that for the same space, PLUS there's an SD Micro card slot to take that even further! The audio sounds EXCELENT, and you can change the EQ to your preference, not just presets. The video is crystal clear and fluid on a screen larger than the Nano. No squinting on this screen. I don't think I could've asked for anything better that this little player right here. So, if you're wanting to get a Nano or other media player, you need to give this a serious thought.
Let me preface this review by saying that all the necessary legwork needed in order to maximize the use of the Sansa View or any other player that I would have decided to purchase - Windows XP updated, WMP 11 updated, all music properly archived, named, categorized, and tagged with album art, and ditto for photos - had already been done.
That said, the View gets five stars from me on work ethic alone. All I did was plug it into one of my front USB ports with WMP open and running, and before I even realized what it was doing and stopped it, it had already found ALL my music & pictures without me giving it any direction whatsoever and had synched over 6 gig (more than the entire capacity of my previous player) worth of data...in less than two minutes!
Now, I stopped it because like most people I'm sure, I didn't want to sync everything, nor do I believe everything would have fit on it anyway. But since it was such an eager beaver, I decided to toy around for an evening with what it had already loaded onto the player, and I'm basing much of this review on a comparison to my previous player (Philips GoGear HDD1630, which I still own and still works well...battery power is only half of it's original life though).
The View is the same width as the GoGear, but almost an inch longer and about 1/4" thinner. The screen is more than twice the size of the GoGear, and takes up half of the front of the entire unit. It shows pictures and album art with as much resolution and clarity as any high-end digital camera on the market. Sound quality is superb for both audio files and the FM radio - much more volume than the GoGear but without losing any clarity - but I actually like the GoGear's earbuds a little better than the ones included with the View.Read more ›
