can you save songs from the FM tuner onto the MP3 player?

I have had many sansas in the past two years (usually the e250). And from what I can tell, they are pretty solid. They usually have FM tuners, they cheap, so you don't feel like you have to be overprotective with them, and they have good sound quality.

I might add, they they are all (the ones I have used/owned) compatible with mac, but not in the same way as, say, an iPod. You must put it into usb disk mode, plug it in, copy mp3's to the mounted disk, and eject. It really isn't as seamless as iTunes sync. But it still is relatively simple.

I have never tried their windows software, so I have nothing to say in regards to that.

Buying a Sansa, in any form, is practically an unwritten bylaw of woot. Go in for three and you will be part of the club. (Yes, there is a secret handshake, but you have to buy the Sansa first.)

I already have too many mp3 players. But this is the Fuze, for less than what most sites charge for the clip. Woot, why must you tempt me so?

What's the lifespan of a refurbed Sansa? I'm thinking of actually buying this one, but I don't want to if it's gonna die in a year.

quality posts: 15 Private Messages Thumbo

I have two of these. They are my favorite little MP3 players, and my companion on many a flight and drive.

Unlike many players they actually do audio books more or less right, starting from the point they were last stopped.

The battery life has not been quite as good as the 24 hours claimed, but still better than most players I have had.

Tempted to stock up with another, against the day when mine die...

Got one of these (2GB, version 1) on a previous woot, and I am totally in love. I roll with Rockbox, which I totally recommend.

Also, accessories for the Fuze, such as hard cases, rubber cases, car chargers, screen protectors, etc., are all dirt cheap around the interwebs.

Some people complain about the smallish screen. I just caught up on Castle, Fringe and Lie to Me on mine with no eye strain! If it's too small just hold it closer to your head.

If you like to listen to music/radio the Fuze will not disappoint.

The one thing I don't like is that videos have to be converted to some sort of secret sansa format. Other than that, I've been pleased with it. I traded up from the Sansa Clip.

That's the Sansa Clip. It's a nice little player, but with a tiny LCD screen.

Luck of the draw, I believe. I got two 2GB refurb Clips here at least a year back, and they are still going strong. And I believe two refurb E200's a year before that via buy.com, again with no issues with 1+ years of use (I eventually sold the E200's).

Does anyone have any clue whether these would be V1 or V2? I don't want one if I can't put Rockbox on it...

I have two of these players, and this price is WELL worth it. You can add a microSD to the player, and double the memory. Outstanding deal.

um... none. Pretty sure the Fuze does not output video. Also, it only handles one video format. You must convert videos using the (free and crappy) Sansa Media Converter or (if using Rockbox) the free WinFF. My point is, the supported formats are really low resolution. Unless you like watching videos where each pixel is a centimeter across, outputting to a LCDTV is a bad idea.

In every other respect, the Fuze is great.

Ahh, thanks Woot I've been waiting for this. I ordered two back in August and they're great. One for me (24) and one for my mother (54) and it fits both out needs. Easy menus and easy controls for large fingered individuals such as myself.

I tried three cheap MP3 players before this attempting to find something my mother could figure out. She loves it so much this is a backup in case hers breaks.

If this is from the same batch as before they might be V1, which means you can install Rockbox firmware on it if you want. (http://www.rockbox.org/)

Anyway, here's the discussion from August... There might be something useful somewhere in it:

The video converting is an absolute NIGHTMARE. I think I finally got it to work for my brother's, but it took forever. So unless someone on here would like to post a link to a good tutorial about how to get videos into the right format, I wouldn't recommend buying this if what you really want to do is watch videos.

EDIT: Apparently someone has finally found a way to make the video converting not quite as much of a nightmare. Keep reading down through the other posts, or go to the quality post links at the top of the page.

I'm not sure how to explain it simply. Recording from FM is easy with both the default firmware and the much more awesome Rockbox firmware. Both also let you record from voice.

Will these play Ogg without Rockbox(since it's not obvious if this is the V1 or V2)?

Bought my wife the 8gb version of this from Costco for Christmas, new for $54.99. She loves it, Listens to audio books. Battery life excellent, and she can resume her book from where she left off, Her last Sansa would not do that. Very happy with it, great product.

wow. there's definitely some woot space monkey business going on here.

look at the supplementary photos: the black LEFT side is exactly like the blue RIGHT side (except the color), and vice versa.

maybe one of them went through some kind of space warp thingy, huh?

i'm left handed... (and i have a mac)
- which one do i want?

now i'm all confused.

the ha is silent - i'm laughing on the inside

I've bought three refurbed Sansas from Woot, one of the e200's and two of the clips (one is packed away in case the first one dies). All have been great and still get used regularly. My girlfriend loves the clip.

In fact, I borrowed it just this week for a business trip and really liked it as well, which has me thinking of getting one of these since it seems to be the best of both the larger model (bigger screen and photo/video support) and smaller model (size).

Without a doubt, go for it. I grabbed the refurb 8GB Clip a month ago for $38 shipped, and couldn't be happier.

Also, while I really like the sansas, I prefer red LEDs. Has anyone ever tried to mod one with red LEDs instead of blue? If so, how difficult is it?

What about a custom OS/firmware with better format support like with the e200?

edit: I see Rockbox has already been mentioned.

I need something to tide me over for a few months until I can upgrade my phone to an Android phone and this looks like it can fit the bill.

In for 3!

Can't beat these for sound quality (after getting better headphones).

Easy to use, lightweight, and expandable via SD card.

What a great gift!

My family bought two of these a year and a half ago. One of them only lasted a couple months with heavy use, but it was being used by my brother, who I think tends to be a bit rough on his electronics. The other one is still going, but it isn't used very often. But the thing about them being offered for $35 is that even if it does die after a year, you've still gotten a pretty good deal.
