2 out of 5 eggsend of the line

Pros: standard usb port, larger screen, better random play algorithm, better locking mechanism and separate volume controls (which are not locked - so no need to unlock to adjust) editable menus are nice but you need to remove things you don't need just to make the menus tolerable.

Cons: the touch pad is a big con. as others have pointed out the wheel mechanism of the old Fuze was excellent (i could adjust the player w/o removing it from my pocket), the touch screen is alternately hypersensitive and unresponsive. The database seems to rebuild on ever startup instead of on changes so the delay is actually greater than the old Fuze device by a minute of more. The battery life is shorter. I have more crashes in the short time I've had it than I ever had with the Fuze. sometimes it makes a harsh buzz and becomes unresponsive. I've had a few occasions where the device failed to power up without a force reset (holding the power button for a long count).

Other Thoughts: I feel like I'm defusing a bomb when I finally managed to get the menu to the playlist I want without touching the pad in the wrong way and sending the device off into some other function before I can get the lock on. Did anyone actually use this device before mass producing it? Sansa has always been great for high capacity devices that are affordable and best for those who just want a music player. This entry tried weakly to imitate an iPod. I've had several of these as has my son. I was reasonably happy until I gave my Fuse to my son to replace his and got the Fuze+ for me (his idea). He got the better end of the deal.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Large storage capacity, expansion slot

Cons: The touch screen was quite insensitive, the screen was delayed, It took about a minute and a half to turn on. After two days it wouldn't turn on anymore. I'm exchanging it, maybe this one's a dud?

Other Thoughts: I had an older fuze and loved it, so I figured that I'd upgrade with another Fuze, but this one sucked.

1 out of 5 eggsFuze+ Big Disappointment

Pros: Great sound, microSD, high volume

Cons: In my opinion, the touchpad interface is so slow, sluggish, and unresponsive, as to make the product close to unusable. I have given this product over a month, thinking "practice" with my swipes would improve the experience - NOT! It is so slow to respond! I have to wait after a swipe to find if it registered or not. Controlling the scroll speed is also infuriating. As others have mentioned, accidental triggering is also a problem.

Other Thoughts: I have two Fuze and two Clip products. User of those for years now. I have been a big Sansa fan. The wheel/button interface on the Fuze was elegant and responsive - loved it.

2 out of 5 eggsFuze+ Disappoints

Pros: Great sound Quality, Price, MicroSD Slot. The volume goes much higher than my previous Fuze.

Cons: I've really liked all of the Sansa products I've purchased. Two Fuze and Two Clips. User interface on Fuze was wonderfully simple to use. The sluggish/unresponsive touch pad is a deal breaker. No end of frustration while I wait to see if my swipe registers or not. Oh, did I mention? No end of frustration while I wait to see if my swipes registers or not!!! It doesn't matter what you are doing. I really feel this was a waste of money. I could have put it toward a Z%$une which I've been dieing to try.

Other Thoughts: I so much miss the the wheel / center button controller on the Fuze. Instantaneous and tactile feedback.
