Coming from the creative muvo2 fold, I’ve taken well to the sansa e280, just two things I wish it could do to make it “perfect” for me:
enable play by folder. It’s great you can play by artist, genre, album and so on, but sometimes you just want to play directly what is in a specific folder!
have the volume setting stay where you left it each time you turn it on, 50% each time is annoying!
Other than that, it’s great, funky and above all, not an iPod!
