This review is from: SanDisk 1.8" Black 4GB MP3 Player Sansa e260
Pros: I won't duplicate the pretty comprehensive comparisons that others have made with other players that are dominating the market, but it's pretty evident that the e200 series is feature laden and well built.
Mine has survived drops onto hard surfaces without any damage.
The e200 series is compatible with the open source Rockbox firmware, which adds a great deal of capability to the hardware while allowing you to retain the original firmware.
You aren't locked into a walled garden of media - you can just drag media to it like a flash drive if you wish.
Unbeatable value, even at retail price.
Cons: Other people may judge on looks alone.
There is some sort of dust between my screen and the plastic cover that is only visible when the player is off.
Yet another proprietary sync cable - and only charges via USB.
Pros: The drive survived the trip from New Jersey in about 1 day - very quick indeed - the packaging was sparse as for all OEM drives but a thorough scan for errors revealed nothing at all.
The drive itself is fast (easily on par with the latest 320gb Western Digital and Seagate drives) and quiet (compared to my 160 GB Maxtor Diamondmax 10).
Cons: None so far - hopefully this thing will outlive the rest of my computer.
Other Thoughts: I managed to get this at a very good price indeed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PQI i221 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model BK02-2033R0131
Pros: It's cheap, it looks pretty slick. The integrated jack itself doesn't seem particularly more likely to break than most metal ones.
Cons: The cap is probably going to go missing sometime. Unnecessarily large considering the board itself takes up ~half the interior space.
The wrist strap they include is essentially useless.
Other Thoughts: I didn't bother benchmarking it.READ FULL REVIEW
