SanDisk Sansa e280

The SanDisk Sansa e280 offers music-savvy consumers an alternative to buying music or renting it. People can have real access to more music than iTunes users could ever dream of buying. The SanDisk Sansa e280 is compatible with Microsoft’s Playforsure that allows music rental. It is also obviously compatible with plain MP3 or WMA files. With 8GB of integrated (flash) memory plus an SD card expansion slot, most users should have enough room for their music/photos.

The SanDisk Sansa e280 displays a stark contrast with the earlier SanDisk Sansa e280 mp3 players such as the e100 series. While the older e100's feel flimsy and creaky all around, the SanDisk Sansa e280 has a very solid feel and a fashionable esthetic appeal. The scratch resistant metal shell on the back is particularly interesting. It has a nice matte finish and makes the player feel sturdy and durable. SanDisk Sansa e280weight feels about right for its size although a bit on the heavy side. The player also includes a micro SD expansions slot that not only gives you more space for your music, but also turns the e280 into a card reader.

The included Media Converter software can be installed fairly quickly and once the SanDisk Sansa e280 was connected it was immediately recognized and ready to go. The included CD came with an installer for the Rhapsody subscription music service. Talking about music, the sound and quality is very good. Some bonus functions that come with the SanDisk Sansa e280 are the FM radio and voice recording. Video playback is enjoyable as well as the frame rate stayed constant and the sound reproduction was good too. The SanDisk Sansa e280 gives outputs considerably better sound than the bundled unit can reproduce. The SanDisk Sansa e280 on my way to work for about 2 hours a day and the player was able to run without a recharge for about a week and a half, which is very respectable.
