The Sansa e250, e260 and e270 (with 2GB, 4GB and 6GB of storage, respectively) comprise the Sansa e200 Series, the newest members of the SanDisk Sansa family of flash-based digital audio players. The Sansa e200 Series players are an update to the now-dated e100 Series, which topped out at 1GB of internal storage and featured backlit, monochrome displays.
The e200 players feature high-resolution color screens, audio and video playback, still image viewing, an integrated FM tuner, a removable, replaceable battery and live recording of both voice and FM radio. These features are packed into a player measuring 3.5" (H) x 1.73" (W) x 0.49" (D) and weighing only 2.6-ounces.
Unlike many players on the market today, the new Sansa offers storage above and beyond that provided by internal memory; the Sansa e200 Series players feature an onboard microSD card reader for additional storage. At the time of this writing, microSD, or TransFlash, cards are available in capacities up to 1GB as of this writing.
Included with the Sansa e200 Series players is a USB 2.0 transfer cable, branded SanDisk earbuds, a protective slip-case, a lanyard, a printed Quick Start guide, and a software CD-ROM with a full User’s Manual in PDF format, a media converter utility and Rhapsody Jukebox Software.
