  • SanDisk rolls out new Clip players, say hello to the Sansa Clip+

    SanDisk has revved its line of tiny Sansa Clip players — now called the Sansa Clip+ for those of you keeping score at home — and, thankfully, hasn’t changed too much from the already-great device (see our Sansa Clip review here). Read More

  • Sansa Sits Satisfied At Second

    It’s officially official: the iPod is the number one media player in the known universe. The number two media player is the entire Sansa line from flash maker SanDisk. Eli Harari, CEO of SanDisk, admits that he’s content to sit at the number two spot. And why shouldn’t he? Read More

    Here’s a little demo of the SanDisk Sansa slotRadio player that we reported earlier. The basic gist is a $99 player loaded up with 1000 songs spanning various genres. You can also buy genre-specific microSD cards for $39.99 that come with 1000 songs too Read More

  • Review: SanDisk Sansa Clip

    Quick Version: Starting at under $40, the Sansa Clip from SanDisk makes an excellent wearable MP3 player if you’re looking for something small that still has plenty of features. Read More

  • Review: Sansa View 16GB

    I like Sansa media players.  I always have.  They’re not quite as sexy as Apple iPods, and they’re not that much cheaper, really.  The reason I like the Sansa players is because they don’t require any special software on my computer — heck, the review model I received contained only the player itself and the USB cable: no software CD at all!  As a GNU/Linux user… Read More

  • Opinion: The SanDisk SlotMusic player is a good idea

    My good friend Peter Ha isn’t sold on the Sandisk SlotMusic hoopla (see his post here). I think it’ll work, though. You have to approach it from the mindset of the casual consumer for it to make sense. Think of the player like a Walkman or a Discman and MicroSD cards as blank tapes or CDs. Then remember that entire albums used to be sold on tapes and CDs and that for many… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: SanDisk Sansa Shaker (1GB) for $14.99

Buy.com has the SanDisk Sansa Shaker for the low, low price of $14.99, which includes free shipping. Being that it’s a SanDisk product, there’s an SD slot that you can use to expand upon the 1GB of storage that comes standard. The Shaker has a built-in speaker… Read More

  • SanDisk pushes removable media for all music devices

    Yes, indeed, SanDisk has a vested interest in people buying removable storage cards, seeing as how the company makes its money by selling memory. However, SanDisk’s Jan Hauer – director of product marketing – made an interesting prediction in London earlier today. Hauer predicted that, eventually, MP3 players won’t be outfitted with memory at all. They’ll all… Read More

  • SanDisk to offer music on microSD cards, movies too?

    Those of you who like the feeling of a tangible object that holds your music purchases might be interested in what SanDisk is planning with its microSD cards. It’s giving away a free microSD card loaded up with 55 music tracks with the purchase of a new 8GB Sansa Fuze player. The company’s expected to announce more content offerings in the future. It could work, too, since… Read More

  • SanDisk Sansa Fuze is real, coming soon

    We first caught wind of the Fuze last week and now it’s official. The 4GB Fuze will come in red for now, we assume more colors will be available, and will retail for $100. The little PMP features a 1.9-inch screen, digital FM radio, voice recording and a microSD/SDHC slot. Battery life, according to Amazon, puts the Fuze at 24-hours for audio and 5-hours of video playback. $100 sounds like… Read More

  • SanDisk working on new Sansa Fuze?

    [photopress:sansa_fuze.jpg,full,left]While it’s not official, SanDisk is getting ready to launch a new mid-market PMP called the Fuze. Aimed at the 3rd generation iPod Nano, the Fuze will be an SSD-based tiny-screen having PMP that appears to have almost all the same features as the iPod Nano, plus an FM radio, but with more storage, possibly up to 16GB. So far, SanDisks PMPs have… Read More

  • Sansa spokeswoman will shave her head if Zune overtakes her company in holiday sales

    Remember last year’s WrestleMania 23, when Vince McMahon lost a hair vs. hair match against Donald Trump? (There’s the clip to refresh your memory.) OK, so it was Bobby Lashley vs. Umaga, but you know what I mean. Take that scenario—a hair vs. hair match, very popular in Mexican lucha libre—and apply it to the sales of the Microsoft Zune 2 and the Sansa series of PMPs. Read More

  • SanDisk Sansa Shaker Review: You Know, For Kids


    Don’t want your music-loving 8- to 11-year-old running around with an iPod? SanDisk targets “tweens” with its new Sansa Shake — a kid-friendly player that stores music on Secure Digital memory cards and runs on one triple-A battery. Best of all, it’s pretty darn cheap, at just $39.99, including a 512MB SD card. Older kids may not be impressed by the… Read More

  • The AudioFile: The Expandable Revolution


    My favorite trend in MP3 players and music-phones is the inclusion of a slot for a ridiculously tiny microSD card. There’s just something really cool about taking a 2GB memory card out of my LG Chocolate phone and putting it into my SanDisk Sansa e280. But high-capacity memory cards also have the potential to resolve thorny issues related to digital music sharing — especially… Read More

  • Pandora Shows Off Streaming Prototype, Someone Better Tell Sansa!

    Looks like Sansa’s Connect is essentially an OEM product out of Taiwan because Pandora is showing off a rebadged device to showcase its wireless streaming products. No real information on this thing, but TechCrunch got some screenshots and pictures. I wouldn’t expect Pandora to actually launch this device — it’s a proof of concept, kind of like the Music Gremlin… Read More

  • The Futurist: The Future of Pandora is Mobile


    Thanks to the Copyright Royalty Board, beginning in mid-July, all Internet radio stations will see substantially higher royalty fees. Fees so high, that it isn’t difficult to imagine vast swaths of the musical Internet becoming dead air overnight. Most frightening of all is the prospect of losing Pandora — one of the truly great things to come from the entire Interweb. I had… Read More

  • Reminder: Sansa Connect Reader Response Contest


    Just a reminder: We’re also giving away two little devices that many of you are eager to get your greasy paws on: the Sansa Connect from SanDisk. Make the jump for full details: Read More

  • The AudioFile: Apple and the Long (Mc)Fly Ball

    People have been clamoring for WiFi-enabled music players for a long time now. But current offerings from Archos, Microsoft, and SanDisk make it seem like they’re all just taking weak jabs at Apple, like when George McFly goes to deck Biff in Back To the Future and just lands a wimpy blow on his shoulder. The big blunder is simple: keeping social WiFi (sharing music) and productivity… Read More
