I recently purchased the Sandisk Sansa MP3 player because I needed something small to take on an airplane. Right off the bat the Sandisk Sansa was easy to connect to my computer with the supplied usb2.0 cable. The Sandisk connected to Windows Media player really smoothly and I began downloading MP3 files onto it. The sound quality is one of the best features because of the supplied headphones, I also tried a set of bose headphones and it sounded awesome.
The Sandisk Sansa doesn't put the songs in artist order instead it puts them in alphabetical order. The menu screen is alright, it is colored blue and I like the color screens better. The Sansa only weighs 2.0oz so it's very tiny. The battery life is as good as the AAA batteries you put in it, mine lasted me about 4 hours.
Overall I think if your dying to get you hands on a MP3 Player then you should pickup the small sansa toay.
