I’ve got a V1 Sansa Fuze, 2GB, black, came in a blister box, BE0807AXWK-2GB written on the back of it, made in China.
The select button on it has a lot of sideways freedom so it actually rattles while I’m using the thumbwheel. I can even hear it rattle when I shake it, but that doesn’t bother me as much. The thumbwheel itself is not the snuggest fit either.
All said and done, it doesn’t feel all that smooth and pleasant to use, as I’ve been reading prior to the purchase. Looking at some pictures on the net the select button on mine does seem to be raised just a hair more then the ones I’ve seen, but it could just be the light playing tricks on me.
Is this common and to be expected? If not did someone hear of such a defect, and might know how SanDisk handles it? I’m planning to take a trip to the store to check out some models on display, but I’d like to go prepared in case it’s a batch thing.
Thank you for any info!
