They’re still on the young side to be begging for an electronic device, but portable media players of any kind are undoubtedly on many a wishlist. The options have come so far since the days of the good ‘ol Sony Walkman (R.I.P. 2010) and there are many products available, but I found a relatively new entry that’s a winner.
The SanDisk Sansa Fuze+
is certainly a lesser known product than the iPod Nano or Shuffle, the
but the Fuze+ offers many of the same features at a more affordable
It plays audio, video, stores photos, has a
high-resolution touchscreen like its competitors, but one cool feature
in particular is its ability to play “slotRadio” cards which come
pre-loaded with 1,000 songs and playlists from the genre of your liking.
No downloading songs one-by-one, no dealing with creating playlists,
it’s all done for you.
This could be a great gift for anyone who simply wants music on the go and doesn’t want to spend time downloading songs.
I also just noticed that the 8MB player can store up to 24 hours of
video. Hmmm, load that baby up for your kid on a long holiday car trip
to Grandma’s and maybe you’ll make it through its entirety without even a
whisper of an “are we there yet” –Jeana
