The Sansa® Fuze™+ MP3 player delivers a rich portable multi-media experience with superior audio and video capabilities, stylish industrial design, a best-in-class unique graphical user interface, and flexible storage expansion via a microSD™ card slot.
I was fortunate to receive a black Sansa Fuze+ MP3 Player. I immediately noticed how compact and light it was, and I couldn't wait to start using it!
It comes pre-loaded with a few songs, and to add more songs, you simply need to drag and drop!
The audio was clear with the included headphones, and even connected to our cars audio system it sounded great!
To add video and photos to the Sansa Fuze+ MP3 Player, I had to download the Sansa Media Converter.
Once I launched the Sansa Media Converter, for some reason it took a while to update the player--it couldn't recognize it, and after numerous attempts at turning it off and on, I was finally able to get all the files I needed so I could use the program.
And using it was simple too. I just had to find whatever media files I wanted to upload (video, photo, etc.), and in just a few moments the files were converted for playback on the player.
DH and I love listening to the songs, and the boys love watching the home videos and viewing the photos we uploaded.
The Sansa Fuze+ MP3 Player also has the ability to play, pause, and record FM radio, record your voice, and play podcasts! It also has a slot for microSD cards, and SanDisk offers a variety of slotRadio cards which offers lots more music.
I was also fortunate to receive the VH1 Classic slotRadio card. Each slotRadio card contains 1000 songs, and I really enjoyed the VH1 Classic songs. I especially enjoyed the 80s songs--so many great songs I haven't heard in a long time by Bon Jovi, Tears for Fears, and more!
I do have to admit that I'm still not used to the controls, simply because I'm so used to touch screens. The Sansa Fuze+ MP3 Player has a control panel that you swipe to change screens, select options, etc., and I often found myself trying to swipe the screen instead!
Despite the initial difficulty in converting media and getting used to the Sansa Fuze+ MP3 Player's controls, it's lightweight, has a nice, big screen, and so far we've all been enjoying this versatile player!
Shop: You can purchase the Sansa Fuze+ MP3 Player (ARV $79.99) and slotRadio cards (ARV $29.99-$39.99) at various retailers online and nationwide.
