T he American company SanDisk is famous for its design and production of the flash memory cards. For the past few years the company has also been making MPEG-1 layer III products, better known as MP3 players. Just like with all electronic consumer products, big developments have been made in the MP3 player market in the past decade. Large memory capacities, lower prices and smaller dimensions are some of the features which result in these developments. Additionally, there is a current trend of putting as many features as possible into one device. The difference between MP3 players, USB sticks, digital cameras and mobile phones become smaller every day.

SanDisk sent us the Sansa C250 MP3 player in a colorful, medium-sized box. We tested the 2GB version, which according to the specifications, can hold approximately 500 MP3 songs / 1000 WMA songs. In the box we found the SanDisk Sansa C250, together with earphones, a handy neck cord, a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery, a USB cable, software and a Quick Start Guide. It was not surprising that it did not need a large box, as the dimensions of the SanDisk player are only 81.0 x 15.4 mm.

SanDisk opted for a simple, sleek design. Despite the dimensions the Sansa C250 has a 3.6 cm colour screen. The Sansa MP3 player does not have a lot of buttons. To the right of the screen there is a blue-lit square navigator which actually directs all of the functions. A separate key on top of the MP3 player regulates the volume. On the bottom there is a ‘record’ button and a ‘hold’ button. As long as your fingers are not too big, the SanDisk Sansa player’s buttons are easy to operate.
