I needed an MP3 player for my mother who doesn't have a computer nor is she very tech savy. She's taking treatments and I thought this would be a great way for her to enjoy her music and help her relax while she sits for 5 hours at a time during her treatments. However, I needed a player that didn't require a computer to recharge the battery. The Sandisk Sansa m260 4GB Expandable MP3 Player was exactly what I needed. She gave me most of her CD's to put on to the player and I was able to put close to 1,000 of her songs on it. I bought her some extra AAA batteries and she's happy as a lark. The player was easy to use and has a great sound quality. Thanks for offering a great product at a great price!!
I am very happy with the Sandisk MP3. The two things that pleased me most was that it was very easy to load songs and has lots of memory. I have 500 songs on mine already and it is not even half full. I put my favorite albums on it twice because there is so much memory. Two AAA batteries last for nearly 10 hours. The headphones that came with it were surprisingly comfortable. I needed to purchase two MP3s: his and hers. With a very reasonable price it is hard to beat. The down side is the audio quality is acceptable but not great. The audio quality issue I believe is common with this type of digital media. Also the screen can be hard to read when it is worn on your arm.
I was shy to purchase a factory reconditioned product, but I wanted an MP3 that ran on inexpensive AAA batteries. This one exceeded my expectations. Although the product came without a user manual, it was not hard to figure out how it worked. I subscribe to a books on tape sevice and am amazed at how many hours of books this device holds. Downloads are a breeze. The audio quality is good and bonus - the radio reception is amazing.
I realy liked that it has an FM radio, but didn't like the that it didn't come with an owner's manual. There doesn't seem to be an "off" button. When the battery was removed (the only way I could figure out to turn it off,) then it lost all memory of the songs I selected and I had to hook it up to my computer and download my song list once again. This would not be a product that I could go on vacation with. Once the battery died I would have no way to re-load my songs.
