Yes,i agree with you and for me, one of the best features of the Fuze is the ability to delete songs,video,pictures and podcasts on the fly.I now have a 8gb micro chip which gives me a total of 16gb to play around with.It's rocks!

So does that meant you can't delete from the nano but have to use iTunes? I was trying to help her with anydvdconverter and looking at her itunes and she wanted to delete something and couldn't from the nano, or she didn't know how... because if there isn't that feature, then that's not good at all. I like to delete things I don't want on there, I'll forget later... for example, I'm listening to a podcast and don't care for it, then I can delete it immediately. I really like that feature.

Yes, i believe you are correct.My children have ipod's and i've never seen a delete feature on the players themselves.I think the only way to delete is through the itunes library.

With the iPod, you are esentially locked into the Apple management application.
It's nice to be able to use your device in the way that suits your own needs best, a major advantage of the Sansa. You have the option of direct "drag and drop" control in either USB mode, actually, plus synchronization with the client of your own choosing.
The Fuze's firmware is very stable, right out of the box.
Enjoy the happy sounds of your Sansa!!

one of the things I like in my elecronics is simplicity. I may be 40 years old, but I am definately a child of the computer age, so the more complicated things dont bother me. But in all things, less is often more. I really like being able to drag and drop to my fuze. it's like having another little hard drive. I can do the same thing with pics and the images show up brilliantly without having to resize them manually. I've had my Fuze two weeks today, and I'm happy I got it.

Thanks so much for the excellent article.I'd just like to add that as i've now switched to the 8gb microSD i haven't noticed that my Fuze has had any difficulties with the extra data at all.

"Forget about line-in to your car stereo and all that, and just use it as a portable audio player and all that,...."
I'm confused. Before I came here and read all this stuff, I plugged my fuze into my car stereo through a cassette converter and it worked great. My old stealth used to have a 1/8th in stereo jack, and I'm sure with a sj-sj cable it would work fine with that as well.
What did bdb mean by this statement? Why do you need a line out? Why would I listen to my headphones AND need a line out at the same time?

Not sure what he meant by that either. I guess he's advocating fewer features for the sake of simplicity.
Anyway, the issue with line-out is not that you would use it at the same time as headphones. You would use one or the other depending on the situation. Line-out and headphone out are electrically different (different voltages and impedance). Whenever line-in is available, you will have much better results with a line level source than a headphone source.
Your cassette addapter proably compensates somewhat for the difference. But if you try plugging your Fuze's headphone output into a line-in on your home stereo, you'll notice that the volume will seem very low compared to other line-level sources (like a CD player). With most players, sound quality is also inferior over headphone output (because you have to max out the volume to get a decent level). Luckilly the Fuze's SQ is extremely good even at full volume, so it's not too much of a problem.
