The Sansa Fuze+ MP3 Player is a 8GB alternative to the traditional MP3 player. How you ask? Well, aside from providing 8GB of internal memory, the Sansa Fuze+ also features an expansion slot that plays SanDisk's slotRadio Cards. These optional cards can come with music mixes of up to 1,000 songs or feature a particular artist. Once you've picked your style of music, insert the card and start listening! There's no need to download music or buy individual songs. The slotRadio cards are easy on your budget as well, making them both user-friendly and affordable. In addition to using slotRadio cards with the Fuze+, any microSD/SDHC card will work with the player - allowing you to expand your listening options without the hassle of uploading files.

More than an MP3 player though, the Fuze+ also plays FM radio. Find your favorite spot on the dial and rock out or relax. Should you want to relive the moment later, the Fuze+ features an FM recorder. You can also utilize the player's voice recorder for capturing sounds of the world around you. Additional features of the Fuze+ include the option to view videos or photos and listen to podcasts or audio books. The Fuze+ also features a simple, modern design and easy-to-use touch controls for a player that not only sounds good, but looks good too!

      I bought this to replace my older Fuze. The wheel on the older one wore out. With the touch pad on this one no chance of it. The touch pad is pretty sensitive, but after playing with it for a while i got the hang of it. The size of the screen over the old one is great. The price was cheaper than anywhere else i could find online. So much easier to use than Ipod and you dont have to use Itunes to put music on it. Just drag and drop. And with the media converteryou can get online, adding movies to it is simple. I would recomend this to anyone.

      I had an old MP3 without the touch screen. It worked much better than this one. The screen is to sensitive. It the MP3 is in my pocket and the seat belt touchs the MP3, the song jumped, or stopped. VERY annoying! It lasted less tahn 2 months and then the entire machine locked.

      I am very nervous about replacing it with another touch screen.

      And the Menus are different than the earlier version.

      Comments about SanDisk 8GB Sansa Fuze + MP3 Player Black:

      I bought this because I've owned a Sansa mp3 player before and liked it because it was a good value with decent sound and easy to use. The Fuze has good sound but I've found it nearly impossible to navigate. Extremely frustrating!! My recommendation is don't buy it!!

        I was very happy to get it, beautiful size, and looks very good, However I wanted to take out the video, and it can't be done on the Sansa fuze. I returned it, and bought a Sansa clip. I should of checked before if it can be taken out, I just thought that all vidoes can be taken out.

              I have a number of trouble with this player in just one year or so. I cannot change radio channels in the past few months, so I have only one FM radio line. And a couple of days ago it stuck again, and the power turned off with 85% of the battery bar green, meaning full. Since then I have not been able to turn it on. This is a waste of money for me. About the touch? I would rather prefer a non-touch one. My first Sansa MP3 player, my forever goodbye to the brand!

                  First of all, this unit is hard to control. It takes forever to power on and off. The battery life STINKS. I shouldn't have to spend more time charging it than listening to it. I've only had mine for a couple of months, an I hate it. I purchased this for the extra space it offered, and it definitely isn't worth it. The cons outweigh the pros. Don't waste your money on it.

                  Not easy to use , always groups the music then shuffles within.
                  It died on me after couple of months of use and before that the screen showed sign of distortion,building bubbles.

                    First of all, for those complaining about a lock, it has one! Just hold the power button down briefly. I manage both my music and my audio books, easy to load (use the Windows drag & drop interface just like a hard drive). Touch screen interface easy to use with a little practice. Sounds good, light and easy to slip in a pocked while exercising. Battery lasts for several days.

                    The only thing I wish it had was a bookmark, so I could store a stop in an audio book, go back and listen to another chapter and then return where I left.

                      I had this MP3 player for 1 year. It was very hard to control. After getting use to all the operating quirks, I had somewhat good quality sound. But after a year, the unit quit working. I purchased a no-fault guarantee plan through [@]. But that extra cost is half the price of the product. Seems this MP3 player should last longer than one year. I still have an AM radio from 1963 that still works. Where's the quality in today's electronics products? My guess, it went out the window when we farmed out building electronics to non-US countries, because we had to pay union workers too much money. Bottom line: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! If there was a rating in the minus category, this product should rate -5.

Also, you can not fwd. through songs. for those reasons, i have wasted my money.

                              I bought this to replace my older Fuze. The wheel on the older one wore out. With the touch pad on this one no chance of it. The touch pad is pretty sensitive, but after playing with it for a while i got the hang of it. The size of the screen over the old one is great. The price was cheaper than anywhere else i could find online. So much easier to use than Ipod and you dont have to use Itunes to put music on it. Just drag and drop. And with the media converteryou can get online, adding movies to it is simple. I would recomend this to anyone.

                              I am a novice and use the product for music only. Downloading is quick and easy. The screen is a good size and very clear. Music quality seems good when used with good speakers. My new mini van has an auxilary port but does not sound that good and maybe it is my speakers and not the unit. Keeps a good charge and only issue is the navigation touch pad does not seem to work without hitting it in the exxact area.
