SanDisk Sansa Fuze - Music player design
As for the design, the SanDisk Sansa Fuze is not that special; it is in fact rather standard. The design strongly reminds me of the Apple iPod, in particular its scroll wheel and the way the buttons are situated. The MP3 player features a glossy front containing a 1.9 inch screen. The dimensions of the SanDisk Fuze are 7.9 x 4.8 x 7.6 cm and the player weighs 56 grams. The SanDisk Sansa Fuze is available in several bright colors such as pink, red and blue. In addition, the player also comes in two more sophisticated colors, black and silver. Besides the Fuze media player of course, the package contains a USB cable, a headset, the quick user guide, and a CD with the user manual in PDF format.
SanDisk Sansa Fuze video features
The 1.9 inch screen of the SanDisk Sansa Fuze plays videos very clearly. Even though the screen is on the small side, watching a video is still very pleasant on the Sansa Fuze. The SanDisk Sansa Fuze supports the MPEG5 format, although it remains unclear in what compression. If you want to convert a movie to the Sansa format, I'd advise you to use the Sansa Media Converter in order to ensure you are able to play the movie on the Fuze. On top of that, you will obtain the best video quality.
