Sandisk Sansa c150
- Colour screen, 2GB storage
- Non-standard USB connection, screen too small, lack of customization options
Although this is a small and cheap player, SanDisk has sacrificed advanced customization options to compete at this price.
Price$ 239.00 (AUD)
The SanDisk Sansa c150 is a small music player aimed at the budget market. With 2GB of storage, a colour screen and support for viewing photos, it offers reasonable value for money.
Compact with a black and silver finish, the c150 is slightly larger than a USB flash drive, and this is because of the AAA battery compartment at the back. Weighing a tiny 46 grams with battery, the c150 sports a colour screen and easy to use control set, but the player itself doesn't feel solidly constructed.
The 1.21" CSTN colour screen does make a difference to this unit, especially when compared with the Sansa m260,, but with the c150, Sandisk has made this easier still. On the front of the unit next to the screen are a five way keypad and a power button, which also serves as the menu button. These two buttons are all you need to operate the c150, while a volume button and hold button round out the control set. Pressing the menu button any time displays a rather intuitive menu system, with large colour icons for Music, FM Radio, Voice Recording, Photos and Settings.
The Music options on this player allow you to adjust the basic equalizer, determine tracks to play by Album, Genre or Artist and set playlist options such as Shuffle or Repeat. Like the Sansa m260, used a standard mini-USB connector, the c150 uses a different kind of connection, although it is still USB2.0.
Like the Sansa m260, offered a reasonable 19 hours of battery life, the c150 provides only 15 hours, meaning you will buying new batteries at regular intervals.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
