This is a very neat little player - works nicely with Rhapsody To Go (with Channel support), and unlike the E280r I was able to transfer DRM protected WMAs alongside “subscription” tracks via Rhapsody, rather than having to transfer some content in Rhap and some via WMP. Sound quality is excellent, although I find the volume scale lower than the 280R (and like others have mentioned, I can’t notice any difference between the Normal and High volume settings). More than enough volume though for my EX71s. Build quality and overall form factor both seem superior to the earlier Sansa (which was a nice player in its own right).
But have found a bug. Non-Rhapsody users may not be familiar with this, but when listening to Channels (great way to find new music) you can automatically add the playing track to your library by pressing and holding the Select button. Every time I’ve done this with the Fuze, it tells me it’s added the track to my library, continues to play the song for a few more seconds, then crashes. After resetting the Fuze restarts in the same place it previously started (i.e. doesn’t move forward in the Channel past the songs already played.) Loaded the new firmware today but still experienced the same glitch.
Overall very pleased with my silver Fuze, and hoping this is a minor fix. Anybody else getting the same problem?
