I’ve just replaced my old Sansa e200 series mp3 player with its successor the Sansa Fuze. Here are the killer new features that I really like in the player. None were present in the e200, (nor in an iPod for that matter):
- File deletion is enabled in the player. This is a killer feature for me. It greatly helps me manage my podcast inventories, and also to delete songs I really don’t like and don’t want to hear again.
- Auto bookmarking in all files – wow! what an assistance for long podcasts, videos and audio books. When you return to play the file, it asks you if you want to pick up where you left off, or if you want to start over.
- Progressive speed fast forward and rewind. If you do lose your place, or want to find something in a long file, this really helps speed through it.
Other improvements: larger screen, better build quality, longer battery life, improved video format handling, quicker bootup, and a micro SD card slot. I like it. Took it on my first long run this morning, and I was able to navigate the player and delete files while moving. Without my glasses.
