"The Sansa Fuze+ comes in a variety of colors and capacities, at superaffordable prices. Features such as video playback, AAC compatibility, FM radio, photos, podcasts, Rhapsody support, voice recording, and Mac compatibility make it an easy iPod alternative to recommend."
The new touch-pad navigation is sluggish; screen resolution isn't great; audio quality is just average; and the all-plastic design feels cheap.
"You can find smaller or cheaper MP3 players, but you won't find a better value than the Sansa Fuze+ in terms of dollars per features."

I lost the older Sanda Fuse and missed it so much that I purchased the new model despite the negative reviews. Well the touch keypad is not so bad if you download the latest firmware. The organization of music, and especially audio books is absolutely horrid. Even if you load a playlist, you never know what selection or chapter of a book is going to come up next. Using the Fuze+ is not at all intuitive. You must download and read the manual several times to understand the operation. Very frustrating to use. As one reviewer commented: "what happened to the old design team?". It would appear that the new team consists of the ones that graduated last in their class.
I've bought several Sansa Fuze primarily to listen to audiobooks. The buggy native audio software is best worked around by using MSC mode. They're useless for video as the Sansa Media Converter required to convert video files to Sansa Fuze compatibility does not, in fact, work. The Sansa Fuze Plus I just bought is vitually unusable as its touch screen technology constantly (accidentally) re-starts the audiobook from page 1. Re-finding your place is next to impossible. Gave up and bought a cheap Coby MPS player and it works great at half the price. Sansa Fuze has never EVER gotten its software to function. If it had it would dominate the market. Too bad.
I couldn't believe all the bad reviews for this product so I just had to try it out to see what it was all about. I have had three different Sansa MP3 players and they all far exceeded my expectations. Quality of music, battery life, easy of use and logical layout, all areas were beyond excellent. Admittedly,I bought this used ( and I'm glad I did because had I paid full retail for this turkey I would be REALLY,REALLY angry)but I can't see as how that would affect the software performance,failure to accept the latest updates from the Sansa website or the horrid touch pad performance. Sometimes if you barely touch it will jump through several menus and other times no matter how hard you rap on it,it just laughs at you and does nothing. Getting my music onto it in a way that I can find the artist or album I want to listen to is so frustrating I have given up on it entirely. Expensive and not very attractive or functional paperweight. Stay with your old edition Fuze. One positive about this player is that it would make a terrific suprise gift for your most hated enemy!! I hope Sansa pays attention to all the negative reviews and complaints to their customer service dept. and recall's this POS and sends everyone a new,original Fuze to make up for the waste of time and money.
I have owned and used Sansa Fuze players for several years, and bought this one for the greater memory capacity. While it does have some improvements from previous models, they also made it worse in some other ways. Here is the good and the bad of it.
GOOD. Bigger video screen and higher resolution capability make video viewing much better. The greater memory capacity is always welcome. I also think the sound quality is slightly improved.
BAD: The old wheel navigation was way better than this new swipe system. And what happened to the hold button? Finding a particular item is nowhere near as easy as it was on the older model as the menus are not nearly as comprehensive or intuitive.
I am disappointed when I find a manufacturer lessens the value of a product, and Sansa has done that in some ways with this new Fuze. Nonetheless, it remains a solid value and well worth the money.
I absolutely love my Sansa Fuze +! I bought this item for the expandable memory, the compact size and all the options that it comes with! The only drawback is that the touch screen is very sensitive and can easily be bumped into a different category if you are not careful. I think that a screen protector may be a good way to both protect and dull the sensitivity of the screen, so overall, I would give this item a ten out of ten!!!
