Whether you want to soak in an audio book, or relax with your music library, the Sansa Express gives you big, bold sound. A digital FM tuner gives you an even wider range of listening options.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little sporty player

Pros: Lightweight, quick charge that holds, very durable (it has been thrown on the ground many times as a result of my sporting activity and still works fine). Easy to use interface, find songs in playlist or chose what order you want them in; the earphone socket is on the correct side if for sports (some have it on the bottom, this does not loop around).

Cons: Have not found a sports case for it, maybe there is one but I can't find one.

2 out of 5 eggsOn my third RMA

Pros: *Display is nice and bright
*good battery life
*great customer service (but needed far too often)
*Don't need to install any special software to use - can open it as a drive in windows/linux

Cons: I've had a Sansa Express for almost 9 months now, and made my purchase based on several glowing reviews of this product in the press.

There are a lot of little things that are annoying about this player, but the main problems are:
*poor build quality - one of the buttons actually fell into the housing when pressed (prompting the first RMA). There’s actually a fair amount of unused space within the housing which really surprised me, and led me to suspect the engineers/designers of this product didn’t put enough thought into the design of the components.
*easily corrupted file structure, bricking the unit both in terms of a computer and on its own as it won’t boot when powered on (2nd RMA + 3rd RMA)

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it - there are plenty of other good options out there for a mp3 player/fm radio.

Other issues I've found were:
*very unintuitive interface - the unit has 8 buttons, of which only three are really useful in navigation (and not the ones you would expect). Once you master the learning curve, it songs.
*Songs aren't arranged by file name, but must be tagged with track numbers in the metadata. Also note that the relatively common standard of including the total number of tracks racks in the tag (e.g. 1/12, ..., 4/12, ...) is not accepted and results in a random playlist.
*Tracks with a relatively long artist and title scroll across the screen only once, and start so far to the left that the first letters word of the title is often missed
*fm radio reception is rather poor and is also very frustrating to navigate between stations (if not in the presets)

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: * Easily connects to any computer
* Easy to adjust volume/power/pause/skip tracks without looking
* Easy to play full albums (which I do a lot)

Cons: * Seemed to object to unmounting on a friend's mac (though technically, this is the OS's fault)

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried using a microSD card yet, or playlists, or recording voice, or much with the FM radio.

2 out of 5 eggsNot the best choice.

Pros: Halfway decent radio reception, equalizer, charges quick and lasts a long time.

Cons: Poor interface, horrible song detection, horrible firmware updates, shoddy build quality.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to roll back to my initial firmware as it performed a lot better than the new stuff but there appears to be no way to. My volume up button broke after two months, so I opened it up to pop it back in. All the buttons are attached by easily breakable micro solder joints. This is not how you build a small flash memory product, and SanDisk should know that.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Works well as a flash drive once you change the drive to USB Storage Device and an MP3 player. Portable Apps work well. If you have all your MP3s with correct ID3 tags this player works great. FM reception is as good as any. Haven't used it to record FM or Voice notes yet. Also haven't used the MicroSD yet but from online sources it works great and acts as one device when a card is used. Sound quality is as good or better as my old Zen Xtra, even with lower bitrate MP3s. Newegg service is good as always. Drive transfer speed is fairly fast, faster then my 2GB flash drive I have.

Cons: A lot of reviews say it dies after a couple months, let's hope mine isn't the case, this is also why I bought from Newegg. Playlist implementation is a little difficult. Headphones aren't great quality, go out and get some Shure headphones for better quality. I missed the sale on the 1GB version so I decided to go with the 2GB version.

Other Thoughts: You can easily change the driver that is used from MTP to MSC. Search at for instructions. After this is done portable apps can be run off the drive just like a flash drive. Happyfish can be used to sync podcasts easily.

1 out of 5 eggsFolder structure bites

Pros: base features, recording, mp3, FM tuner

Cons: I have to agree, the inability to browse by file structure makes this product junk. If you don't have the ID3 tags on ALL your mp3s set correcty by ALBUM and TITLE and ARTIST, trying to find the song you want to play will be a freakin chore.

Other Thoughts: Did they actually test this player with regular people? Apparently not.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small, light, nice screen

Cons: These are BIG cons, as I am an audio book maniac:
1. does not have the ability to play in a folder structure
2. does not play the numbered files you upload in order....I will give you an example; e.g., imagine listening to Dark Side of the Moon, starting at the last track......This player's firmware is not right. I HAVE REGRET.

Other Thoughts: COWON.
I had to bite the $$ on this one. I am very regretful.
good luck.
