I wanted the ability to expand, in the event I fill my fuze, I can use the micro sd slot. The micro sd cards are relatively cheap and seem to be expanding is size all the time. I bought the 8 GB fuze and can expand as needed.
FM radio is a great feature. You may have all the music you want, but sometimes it is nice to listen to the news or hear new music. And just in case you hear something you like, it can be recorded and played back on your fuze.
The navigation is straight forward and things load very fast. The battery life is great at about 24 hours when listening to music. I have not watched many movies at this point so I can't give an estimate for viewing time.
Sansa releases updates that are easy to obtain when they make improvements to the firmware. I suspect some of the reviews I read before I bought my fuze regarding slow load time were fixed with firmware updates.
If are looking for a feature packed MP3 player at a great price check out the fuze.
I've owned and loved Sansa MP3 players for years. They have a great interface, are super easy to use, and have excellent sound quality. The Fuze, as opposed to the View, has the same sound processing as the amazing Clip. What does that mean? That means that this MP3 player arguably has the BEST sound quality of any MP3 player right now.
It's thin, light, and bright. It has a great screen (would be handy for movies, although I haven't tried watching any yet) and a very slick interface.
It has a rubberized back which makes me much less paranoid about babying this player. I can toss it around on the table or in my pocket and not have to worry about scratching it up. I use a protective clear skin on the front (from bestskinsever) and it keeps the screen pristine and scratch-free.
The absolute best part about the Fuze is the microSD slot. I have the 8 GB player, and an 8 GB micro SDHC card inserted which gives me a 16 GB mp3 player for 70 dollars!! You canNOT find another mp3 player with that kind of memory for that kind of money. Period.
I use this with my Rhapsody-to-go subscription. It works perfectly with Rhapsody, and even has an option to transfer Rhapsody channels on it (radio type stations with a ton of different music that Rhapsody thinks you would like based on your previous selections). Superb.
You don't need Rhapsody to enjoy this player though. I drag and drop mp3s just using Windows Explorer (you can also use Windows Media Player). It's got amazing compatibility and will play just about any kind of music file.
You won't find a better deal on the market today. Set any brand snobbery aside and just get an amazing mp3 player with amazing sound - you won't regret it!
That said the player does not come with software, which is fine as it will work with Windows Explorer or Windows Media Player as an MTP (media transfer protocol, for protected content such as Rhapsody) or MSC (mass storage compliant). Unfortunately it will not work with Winamp (my preferred media organizer) without rolling back Windows Media Player to version 10 (there is a conflict between Winamp and version 11).
My other gripe is that the expandable external memory (the MicroSD card) is seen as separate from the device's own internal memory. What does this mean? If you have 8gb of internal and 8gb of external for a 16gb combined and want to put 16gb of media on the player you have to do your own calculations or simply try dragging and dropping media on the player or card until it tells you no more will fit. It would have been much nicer to simply bundle the player with a small utility for managing storage space so both the internal and external are seen as a whole if you like.
Finally, while I'm impressed with the build quality, the jog wheel is a bit frustrating. It works fine but is overly sensitive and too easy to turn. A bit of friction would have been nice. If the player is going into a pocket the wheel is going to get turned, activate some other menu item or adjust the volume randomly.
Lastly, a small gripe; the headphone jack in on the bottom. I've owned at least 6-8 players in the last few years, none have had this feature.Read more ›
I see the great reviews and they were why I bought the Fuze in the first place. I understand my experience is probably a rare one, but I really hate it when a company simply ignores a customer's problem. I also should mention that during the two weeks I worked with SanDisk to resolve the problem I lost the ability to return the Fuze to Amazon (30 day limit). If you have a problem with the Fuze my experience says to get it back to Amazon within the thiry days because I haven't had much success with SanDisk.
