This review is from: SanDisk Sansa e200 1.8" Black 2GB MP3 Player Sansa e250
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.
Other Thoughts: i say the pictures one finds of this thing dont do it justice. it loogs really awesome. i especially like the tool-free installation of all the drives, particularly the hard drives. what the descriptions fail to mention is that there is a small metal box for the hard drives which is removable so you dont have fo fumble around in tiny spaces :-) the only complaint i have is that the instructions would be nice to have, the two little diagrams on stickers inside the case are not very helpful. other than that, i have no complaints and shipping was perfectly on timeREAD FULL REVIEW
