I tried to approach the SanDisk Sansa slotMusic MP3 player with the right set of expectations. I knew that I wasn’t going to get anywhere near what I’d be getting with an Apple iPod touch. I knew that it was meant to represent a transitional...

There is no doubt that the slotMusic player is a good device for the price. The lack of a screen, shuffle, and audio options may turn off sophisticated digital music aficionados, but this may be a good entry to digital music for newbies or those who...

The Sansa line of MP3 players from SanDisk have always been reasonably reliable and competitively priced, but they were never all that sexy or revolutionary in their approach. In trying to compete directly with the iPod, SanDisk was setting itself...

I think we all have that one band which we could listen to all day, every day, and never get tired of it. For me, that would be the Beatles…or maybe Led Zeppelin. Certainly not Abba (though my wife would disagree.) For listeners like us,...

Sound Quality After popping in the earbuds and inserting the slotMusic card with Nelly – Brass Knuckles album that came with the player, I listened to the album a few times to get a good impression of the sound quality. The overall sound quality...

Is there a place in the market for another MP3 player? What if this one doesnt require a computer in order to copy music, buy music, etc? Sansa is willing to gamble that the answer to both of those questions is yes, with their new slotMusic player....

SanDisk Corporation recently announced the slotMusic player. The player itself is designed to play the company’s slotMusic cards, which it’s calling “the future of music”. The slotMusic cards are essentially 1GB microSD cards...

SanDisk’s slotMusic Initiative may be a questionable approach to buying music using the dying physical distribution model, but we can definitely see its appeal for no-nonsense music fans who have been waiting for a convenient successor to the...

As you might have heard, SanDisk is offering players with a feature that’s a little unusual, a microSD card slot. The slot is a requirement to work with the new music format introduced last month called slotMusic. The slotMusic format is basically...

Everyone knows theres a fine line between brave and foolhardy; the trick is to know when youve crossed it. Sometimes the distinction is obvious. Skiing your first double-diamond slope after a winter of lessons? Brave. Dropping into a Class V rapid...

Its a new idea, and one that no one is sure whether it will take off wildly or crash and burn. Sandisk are launching the Sansa slotMusic player, which is designed to play only albums which come pre-loaded on their microSD cards. Its currently only...

SanDisk released its slotMusic Player under the Sansa brand. It’s a $20 MP3 / WMA player that plays slotMusic cards or basically any microSD card loaded with music. With 8GB microSD cards selling for under $20 this could be the best value on the...

When you consider that slotMedia albums will cost approximately $14.99—compared with $9.99 on iTunes—the SanDisk Sansa slotMusic Player only makes sense for consumers who aren’t buying their music online, or who want higher-quality...

The SanDisk Sansa slotMusic Player is a reasonable option for those who still havent made the switch from CD to MP3, and theres no computer required, so even technophobes can use it. See all products in the...

The slotMusic Player is cheap and works as advertised, but its hard to get around the fact that the technology it supports is a big step...

Earlier this year SanDisk introduced a new format to deliver music called slotMusic. This is simply a 1GB microSD card with DRM-free digital files on it. This format is backed by some of the major record labels such as EMI, Sony BMG, Universal, and...

SanDisk’s $20 music player may be tied to the likely ill-fated SlotMusic platform, the latest attempt to sell albums on too-tiny-to-handle MicroSD cards, but that doesn’t mean the player isn’t a well-designed device with plenty to...

Não há dúvida de que o reprodutor slotMusic é um bom aparelho para o preço que custa. A falta de uma tela, de shuffle, de áudio e de opções podem desanimar os apreciadores de música digital mais sofisticados,...
