SanDisk Sansa View

T he SanDisk Sansa View appeals to me personally, thanks to its appearance. This MP3 player would even look good in an office or business environment. The device feels solid with a sense of sturdiness and reliability; it won't break easily. Especially the video player convinced me of the excellence of this multimedia player with a fine price/quality ratio. The music quality of the View is excellent, although the SanDisk Clip produces an even better sound. Perhaps SanDisk will combine the superb features of each series to a perfect future media player. For example; the monitor of the View, the sound of the Clip and the additional functions of the Shaker. In general, I did not encounter any nuisance about the Sansa View, everything does what it has to do and it works fast too. The only minor is playing fast forward or back in videos or music. This is carried out annoyingly slow and gets on your nerves after a while. The menu is similar and almost equal to the Apple iPod, so I wonder why SanDisk did not implement the search function within a song; the possibility of scrolling through a song. The SanDisk Sansa View 8 GB model is available from 120 Euros and for this price; I'd go and get it.
