SanDisk Sansa Express unboxing video

Over the past few years we’ve looked at and reviewed almost all of the media players in the Sansa range from SanDisk from the original e260 onwards. However I noticed one model missing from our review list; the Sansa Express.

I’ve been extremely impressed with all of the models in the Sansa range and still use the original e260 to this day. They are all simple to use with an intuitive user interface but the one thing that has always made these media players stand out is the phenomenal battery life. I can use my e260 for 2 hours per pay and I dont have to charge it for WEEKS!

The Sansa Express is at the lower end of the model range. It’s pretty small, not much bigger than a regular USB memory key and in fact that’s exactly what it looks like. Because of its diminutive size you wont be able to watch video on this model but there is a decent OLED display on the front so that you can look through your music list and see what’s currently playing etc. There’s even a built in FM radio.

The Express comes in several different capacities, we are reviewing the 1GB model. However the nice thing about the Express is that it had a MicroSD card slot so that you can increase the storage space available and it will support up to 8GB SDHC memory cards.

I’ll be spending the next few weeks using the SanDisk Sansa Express on my commute and will be back with a review soon. Have a look at my brief unboxing video for mode details:
