Fuze 4gb -or- Fuze 2gb plus 4gb sdhc

Ready to pull the trigger on a Fuze for my wife.  For you experienced Fuze users, would you buy a:

 

1. Fuze 4GB ($55.50)

 

2. Fuze 2GB ($42.95) plus a Transcend 4GB class 6 microSD card with adapter ($10.99) = $53.94

 

Choice-2 ends up with 6GB and costs less than a 4GB Fuze.

 

Knowing what you've experienced with your Fuze, which would you buy?

 

Thanks,

Sky

You can find a SanDisk 8GB card for about $14 on Amazon.com. It's class 2, but you'd never know the difference. I had a 4GB Fuze with one of these 8GB cards for almost a year, and it worked perfectly. So for under $60 you could get her a 10GB Fuze. Smiley Wink

Refurbished 4GB Fuse + charger NewEgg $39.99. All my refurbs have been great...

I put all of my rotating music onto the MicroSD card, which I can also put into my BlackBerry or other device. So yes, put the $$ on the memory card and get the 2GB Fuze.

Marvin, Bucko and Black-Rectangle,

 

Thanks for your responses.  I need to buy a brand new Fuze since it is a gift for my wife so a refubished one with possible scratches won't

work.  I'll go with a 2GB Fuze and a 4GB or 8GB microSD card.  If she wants video playback, the 4GB class-6.  If just music and photos,

then the 8GB class-2.

 

Thanks,

Sky

What class is your external card?

I'm pretty sure that all classes play back just fine....the different class speed only comes into play when you're adding content to the card. The same amount of data would load a little faster with a class 6, as opposed to a class 2. I'm not 100% sure, so hopefully someone else will chime in.

I think the class is irrelevant for playback. With a camera, you are cramming images onto the poor little card at many MB per second. The faster it can process them, the better.

 

It might take you infinitesimally longer to load a video onto a class 2 card, but once it's there, playback is easy.

 

However, I have seen reports that for some reason Kingston cards and video are not beloved by Sansa players, so you might be better off with a different brand.

From your response, I assume you are using a card with a class higher than 2.

 

Thanks for taking the time,
