The sleek, thin SanDisk Sansa e250 is designed to offer a complete mobile media solution with support for playing back music, photos and video on its large 1.8-inch TFT color screen. The interface is simple to navigate, giving you fast access to your files so a good time is just a click away.

The e250's 2GB of storage lets you carry with you up to 500 songs on stable flash memory. An integrated microSD (Transflash) slot allows you to add even more storage capacity and change the music on your player in a flash. No moving parts means no matter what activity your doing, your media will never skip. Plus, its strong alloy metal casing provides excellent durability and scratch resistance. Powered by a user replaceable and rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, you can listen to MP3, WMA or secure WMA files or the built-in FM tuner for up to 20 hours. Want to check out new music? The player is compatible with Microsoft PlaysForSure services like Rhapsody and Napster. Included software also lets you convert video clips and images for playback on the device so you’re not just limited to music.

Other features include an integrated microphone for voice recordings (great for never forgetting to do something or recording an oral presentation) and the ability to record FM radio, so you can listen to your favorite songs without waiting for it to play on a station.

4 out of 5 eggsgood, but---

Pros: great price! good sound, nice screen color,
sd slot, fm, ----etc

Cons: most of the videos i convert with the sansa software ends up with the voice out of sync with the video?
turning the thing sideways to watch a video is lame! (can't put it on a base station when it sideways!

Other Thoughts: Its a great lil player (other then the sync n sideways thing!
but, the Sansa fuze is a far better choice!

3 out of 5 eggsDecent music player

Pros: Nice sound. The spinning ring is kinda cute and lets you zoom through a list. Customizable equalizer. There is a feature that allows you to use the ring to scrub through music, which is kinda handy if you want that kinda control. Menu system is pretty slick. Click and drag songs between computer and player. Expansion slot is simple to use; works with 2GB micro SD cards. The sliders for volume, screen brightness, etc. allow you to take things near extreme levels, which I consider to be good, compared to my Zune that lets me set screen brightness to medium, a hair below medium, or a hair above medium.

Cons: Record button on the side is the most annoying convenience ever. I now have several recordings of me saying "What the heck happened to the music?!" because I reached for the player and accidentally hit the record button, which immediately stops the music and starts recording. Handy if you like that, but it's too easy to accidentally hit and you can't even resume your music where you left off; you have to navigate back to the song you were at and the scrub to where you left off. Also, Sandisk has jumped on the bandwagon and decided not to use a standard cable to connect the player to a computer. Gone are the days when you could afford to lose the data cable the player came with and just buy a standard mini USB adapter for a couple bucks or jsut buy a couple to have at home, school, work, etc. now, you have some proprietary, non-standard thing that will most likely cost $25 to replace.

Other Thoughts: If you have a micro SD card in the player and then plug the player into the computer, the computer cannot see the micro SD card. You have to add/remove content from the micro SD card separately. Also, you cannot play music while the player is recharging. Also, hitting the buttons around the spinning ring is not too easy unless you have small fingers becasue the ring sticks out kinda far and the buttons are flush with the surface of the player. This is definitely not as good as the Meizu mini player. However, I guess it was worth the $30 I paid for it (from a woot). On last thing: you cannot search throughy your songs using the directory structure in which the songs exist. This feature seems to have been dispanded in the last few years when everyone started sorting by album, artist, year, etc. What is so bad about letting me sort by folder, Microsoft/Sandisk/Apple?

5 out of 5 eggsSlick

Pros: Battery charge really does last about 20 hours. I use it daily for 2-4 hours and charge it once a week.

1GB uSD cards are cheap enough that you can buy a few of them and load them with song libraries that fit your mood.

Cons: Doesn't play while charging. Play/pause button hard to access because it's too close to thumb wheel.

Other Thoughts: The hardware and graphics are pretty and provide a high-quality impression. The old fashioned m250 model (AAA battery) has better ergonomics, except for e250's thumbwheel is great.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: some of the music that comes with it is quite good. the user interface is pretty intuitive. good sound quality and the earbuds it comes with are rather nice. The micro SD slot is a major plus now that those cards have decent capacity.

Cons: the firmware is a little unstable. I have had 2 of these now and after a year they start messing up. Sometimes they will keep playing (often in 1/2 second loops) but become unresponsive to any input including the power button. Also the firmware keeps separating albums for some reason. it especially has a problem with Rammstein's "Herzeleid", it splits the album into "Herzeleid" and "Rammstein". Along with that any albums loaded on to the micro SD card will have all the tracks automatically alphabetized. These also don't play well with WMP either, DO NOT WRITE ANYTHING ON THIS PLAYER USING WMP! This just creates headaches when it comes time to manage files on the player. Also, when it is being charged there is no playback available at all.

Other Thoughts: Nice if you use the included Rhapsody software to load songs, and the media converter works very well.

After having 2 though, I am ready for something different since the second is messing up just like the first.

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: It's cheap and that's about it.

Cons: Poor construction, Plastic face is off center and uneven.
Jog dial hard to use and has limited functionality.
Confusing menus and had to select items, navaigation is awful
Software is windoz only
Not compatible with itunes

Other Thoughts: Item is not refundable and I can see why. Newegg would be giving refunds right and left for this dismal excuse of a music player. There is a reason why ipods are the best selling music player and this is a perfect example of why. It's not worth it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I listen to e-audio books on the road. Not having to fool around with cd's while driving is great. Also loaded some old Genisis...Good sound, teriffic price.

Cons: Had a fast forward problem with Overdrive audio content. Problem fixed with a firmware update. Other than than no problems.

Other Thoughts: As always Newegg price and shipping almost impossible to beat.

4 out of 5 eggskilled my fist unit

Pros: Inexpensive, microSD slot, sturdy looking, great sound

Cons: for some reason, my winXP machine can't detect it but my VISTA machines can. upgraded my first unit with the new firmware and it killed it. kudos to NewEgg for their superb RMA service. earphones are a little wimp.

Other Thoughts: did not attempt to upgrade my replacement unit with the firmware to the new one for fear that it may kill it again. im not really into videos and everything, i just needed something to listen to while i ride my motorcycle and this fits me perfectly. added an extra 2 GB microSD for some extra storage.

Cons: doesn't play xvid videos, can't make me a sandwitch. is plastic and not titanium.

Other Thoughts: put a 2 or 4 gb microsd in it

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent little MP3 player

Pros: Bought 2 of these during a ShellShocker sale and could not be happier. Much nicer than I expected. The sound is superb and everything works as it should. Who needs an iPod when these are actually more veratile. The FM radio is great.

Cons: Had to give one to my wife. I had to update the firmware to be able to set the USB port, but no big deal.

Other Thoughts: Bought an A-Data 8g microSDHC card to bring it up to 10gb. The ones I received were the updated V2 units.

5 out of 5 eggslovin it

Pros: easy to use for a newbie (new to mp3 players) like me! I was able to expand the memory to 2 + 8gb microsd card without too much fuss. (I was expecting to run into major problems getting the player to recognize the microsd card but instead it worked!)

Cons: not much documentation comes with it, but the website is helpful.. but understanding what they are talking about is something else

Other Thoughts: No idea if videos will play (but i just want to listen to my songs really)
