Ok, so here’s some “food for thought” on the new sansa that I hope SanDisk will fix before the new players come out in the future.
Fuze+ is WAAAAAY to sensitive. The songs literally change as I run. I can’t even place it in my pocket, I have to make sure it’s carefully nestled someplace where nothing can touch it. It’s a huge pain.
I know everyone’s jumping on the “touch pad” phase, but when I have 1000+ songs it’s very unpractical for me to scroll by repeatedly flicking my finger down across the player (which I have to do about 100 times to actually get to the BOTTOM of my playlist). It was MUCH more practical when you could just rotate the disk in the middle of the player.
You need to fix the fact that when I’m listening to a song and hit “back” it doesn’t always go back to my song list. Sometimes it just shows me the album artwork (which, really I couldn’t care less about) and then I have to tap THAT twice to get back to the song list.
The menus and interface on this one PALE in comparison to the old fuze in terms of ease of navigation. Took me a LOT longer to get my bearings with this one than the last one (which was so easy a monkey could’ve used it).
This may just be a glitch with my particular sansa, but I’ve noticed that when I sort songs by “artist” I sometimes find songs uner the wrong person… even though when I sort them by “songs” they have the right name underneath. In any case, just thought I’d add that.
If anyone from Sandisk reads this, I will send you my Sansa+ with $50 cash if you will just PLEASE send me one of the OLD sansa fuzes (with the large screen and the rotating button in the middle that I loved SO much). I hate this new touch pad wannabe and would very much like my old sansa back that I’d come to love (before it broke…after 5 years of heavy use).
VERY unsatisfied customer.
