Help needed(Once again) Fuze or View?

hey guys,

Okay guys I had a SanDisk Sansa Fuze.It broke,because I was careless with it.It was my fault actually!The player worked very awesome and it served my purpose well(The Fuze).I am planning on buying another SanDisk product and I am wondering whether I should go with the View or the Fuze.Can someone tell me whether there are any faults or glitches I should be aware about on the View?And what does the View have that the Fuze doesn't?Please reply me back ASAP when you can Smiley Happy 

 

Thanks,

SR.

The View has a larger screen and supports "digital copy" movies transferred from select DVDs. It also has problems that may never be fixed (the last View firmware update was almost two years ago, I believe). If you simply MUST have your "digital copies" and you want a Sansa, get the View. Otherwise, get a Fuze.

The View sucks, plain and simple.....and it has been years since SanDisk issued a firmware update for  it. What does it have that the Fuze doesn't? A bigger screen, and the ability to play back its video on a TV with a certain cable. Of course, the sound quality of the View sucks compared to the Fuze.

 

Unless you are really attached to watching videos, I would even go so far as to suggest the Clip+....it'sthe newest model, sounds great, has gapless playback, and is most likely to continue to receive updates, since it is the newest. If you must have the ability to watch a video, then get a Fuze....but avoid the View at all costs.

I think that since they figured out gapless for the Clip+, it should be possible for the Fuze. As far as a new Sansa around the corner, who knows? Remember last year, when we all were clamoring for the long overdue update to the original Clip and suddenly , the Clip+ appeared? I wouldn't be surprised if we end up surprised again, the same way. It's time they came out with a Fuze that has mre than 8GB internal.....16GB internal memory with a card slot would make the Fuze much more competitivein the marketplace.....I know I'd sure consider getting one.

 

It is to Sansa's credit that they did do an update recently to the original Clip though, adding support for ReplayGain (which is awesome!)

Okay Get your point Marvin.I think I'll be hanging out for a little more time hoping SanDisk would come out with anther marvel cause then I'D BUY THAT!Gapless is not much of an issue for me.I'd still live with or without it so if everything fails.It's another SanDisk Sansa Fuze!!!

 

Thanks Marvin.You really helped me clear ma mind

Re: Help needed(Once again) Fuze or View?

I was looking at other brands of players, and couldn't find any models that I felt were a better value than the Fuze or Clip+. The other brands seem to lack a separate podcast area, and autoresume for more than one file.

This is an issue for those who use a player for music and podcasts, and would like to be able to resume their podcast, even if they listen to some music before turning off the player.

 

I would like to see some Sandisk models with a full sized SDXC card slot that have an option to disable tag browsing, thus eliminating database update time after a card is switched, or files are added or deleted. I would also like to see these players have a hot swappable card slot, with the player being able to function properly if the card swapped without turning it off.
