Advantages: Great price, easy to use. Perfect for non-apple lovers.
Disadvantages: Plastic exterior makes it feel cheap.
I originally decided to go for this product over an ipod because i wanted something that was cheaper and easy to use. It was also important that, for the price, i still wanted an mp3 player that would be of a good quality and build so that it wouldnt break straight away!
When first opening the box, i thought it looked quite nice in design, with a large wheel for easy pressing and a large screen despite only being a small mp3 player. One dissapointment is that it is plastic and so feels a bit cheap to hold. However, because it is black, you cant see any scratches that may arise (which isnt a lot compared to on the back of ipods).
When turining it on, i like how the buttons appear with a blue backlight so you know that you have turned it on and is a nice added feature. The screen is of an ok quality and is clearer on ipods but still good. The menu is relatively easy to navigate around with the option to view music, videos, voice recordings, photos and obviously settings menus. This was easy to get used to and so i didnt find myself constantly looking through the instruction manual to find out what to do!
This was a pretty straightforward process as it involves Windows media player which is easy to use, just dragging and dropping your chosen pieces on media into the sandisk folder. They will then appear onto your device. It's as easy as that! This is what i really liked as it meant i didnt have to sit for hours trying to get songs onto my mp3 player.
The sound quality is as you would expect off of any mp3 player. You can hear the music clearly and makes for good listening. Earphones come with the sandisk which are of a reasonable quality but you can always use different ones to make for better sound as the jack is 3.5mm which is standard for all ear and heaphones.
Battery life is very good, better than an ipod so you dont have to worry about when the battery is going to run our, making for an enjoyable music time! If it does eventually drain then you simply plug the mp3 into your computer to charge up again.
Overall, i would suggest this device to anyone not wanting to join the apple band wagon but probably not as good quality wise.
Summary: Great all round media device for music, videos, photos and voice recordings.
