I have to say that recently I have seen many interesting similarities to the downfall of iRiver being relicated by Sansa.
EXTREMELY poor reponse from Tech Support, poor documentation, battery life, inconsistent functionality between units, “enhancements” that are actually regressive.
Sansa is actually much worse in many of these areas, particulary support and documentation.
iRiver used to have a forum like this and it is now gone.
While, on balance, I’m happy with my e280 and Fuze, I can’t help but think that Sansa is doomed to be the next iRiver.
You shouldn’t have to be a tech geek to perform basic functions with a player.
I still have an iRiver T30 that I use occasionally and find myself thinking that yet another DAP company will fail
because they simply refuse to listen to the requests of their paying customers in the worlds largest consumer market.
The reported possible aquisition of Sandisk by Samsung doesn’t give me much hope.
