Hope this will help someone out on looking at buying a mp3 player and is on the fence on what to do get. I have had a iPod Nano which is the 4th gen model and I have had the Creative Zen Xfi2 mp3 players and this Sansa unit blows all of them out of the water!! If your a audiophile and you are looking for having crystal clear music, then I recommend this unit. With this unit being able to support pretty much all the major formats, mp3, wma, acc, and the best part is it supports flac and Ogg formats. I went through and converted all my albums back over using exact audio copy and then compressing them to OGG format, and then listening to them on the Sansa unit the sound quality is unbelievable! I was a fan of WMA over Mp3 or any other format but now that I have heard the OGG format I won't use any other format, and with this unit having the ability to use a external micros sd card up to 16gig is a bonus as well. I purchased a 8gig external card for mine and it works great, I will need to purchase the 16bgig card soon because my music collection is to big to fit on the 8gig card but I wanted to see how the card worked with the unit. And the unit works fine under Windows 7 and XP without a problem, the only suggestion I would make is change the USB mode which is set to auto to MSC, I've had zero issues with the unit being set to that mode. So overall, yeah I would highly highly recommend this unit to anyone who wants a great mp3 player that will support any format you desire, has incredible clarity and is a great unit all around! Way to go Sansa! Keep up the great work on these units.

I purchased two of these players. They were just so-so from the start - battery life is very poor and the controls are a bit clunky. Then one of them failed within three weeks! The player stopped turning on and the computer gave me a message saying that the USB device was corrupted when it tried to connect. The SanDisk website FAQ simply said that the player had failed and there was no way to fix it. I won't be buying from SanDisk again.

Excellent value

on 5/7/2010

Good points include the diversity of file formats supported. Bad points include the necessity of using Windows Media Player to create playlists and a USB cable that's only five inches long. All in all, I don't think I could have got more bang for the buck.

This is absolutely one of the BEST music players I've owned. Got the 8GB version, put a 16GB microSD card in it, and it holds months worth of music. I have used a number of others (iPOD, creative labs, sony, sanyo, generic), but none compare if all you need/want is a music player. I wish Sansa would make the 8GB version in different colors. If you're looking for a piece of crap music player, hard to use, hard to load, not intuitive, then don't buy this one!
