I want to raise awareness to the fact that Sansas are among a small, small league of DAPs that have a press-once interface. There is only one other DAP…that I’m aware of…that uses the press once interface, Sony Walkmans. I love being able to press any button one time to pause, FF, reverse whether in screen-on or screen-off mode. Most DAPs make you press twice when in screen-off mode, once to bring the player to a screen-on state and second to initiate the desired command.
I don’t believe this type of interface gets much credit so I am doing my part to let SanDisk know their efforts are greatly appreciated. The View is the only Sansa that I know of that uses a partial press-once interface. The FF and reverse are initiated with PO in screen-off mode while the pause is initiated with two button presses in screen-off mode.There may be other Sansas that don’t use the PO interface but the ones I’m aware of that do use it are the Fuze, Clip and E200 series.
