Hello, I just got my brand new Sansa Fuze 8gb, updated the firmware to the latest and I need to say I’m really happy with its stunning quality. My mighty kudos to the SanDisk guys!
Of course, there’s still room for improvement. One very common request would be gapless playback, but this is already talked about enough in the forum so I won’t add anything else.
One other small issue I found is that the player won’t recognise .oga files as valid OGG tracks. If I change the extension then everything works just fine, but afaik now .oga (OGG audio) is the new official extension for the audio-only files (.ogv is for video files). This should be pretty trivial to fix as there’s no other apparent change except for the extension name. At least in linux land (I use Fedora 11) cd rippers now default to .oga extensions.
One other thing (and a small disappointment also) would be support for .m4a files. MPEG-4 audio is a pretty common format nowadays, and many other players support it already. But I understand there might be licencing issues here.
However, my overall impression stays greatly positive, the Sansa Fuze is the best player I ever owned til now!
