Whats a good cheap MP3 player just to be used at the gym? I plan to listen to audio books not music. I tried using my kindle but its not safe for it there.
If you are wanting an mp3 player for audiobooks - watch out for 2 very important features: bookmarks and the FF/RW function.Tip10 said:Watch Woot (www.woot.com)
Quite often they have any number of different Sansa models (and others) show up as refurbs real cheap. I've had good luck with the ones I've gotten from there. Some have been used personally, some as give aways to friends/family, still others as toss-in for packages going overseas to the troops.
I think http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/reviews/ has good reviews of these mp3 playersDawnOfChaos said:I highly recommend the SanDisk Sansa Clip or Fuze (I have both). If you're a Costco member this months (6/15/09 - 7/5/09) coupon book has a 2gb Fuze for $20 off. It has its own section for Audiobooks, plays overdrive and also you can send videos to it if you wish. Its also MicroSD expandable and has a fm radio.
Wow! If I had ANY interest in an MP3 player I think I'd go for it.Tip10 said:Woot has refurbed Sandisk Clips (2GB) for $14.99 + S&H today
Don't know how they'd work for books but if you are looking for a cheap workout MP3 player might be a possibility.
My son got a Creative Zen for that reason.drenee said:I like that my Sansa lets me get FM radio. That's something my Ipod doesn't offer.
You can get most any of the Sansa manuals in pdf form from the sansa site -- for some of the older stuff you have to hunt a bit but they are there.tessa said:Thanks everyone My DH got me a SanDisk sansa fuze with a SD card. (He said he didn't want to hear me ask questions to every young kid we meet, so he bought it with the sd card because my Kindle 1 has one)
It took me 6 hours to get the thing loaded it didn't come with a manual (I hope I remember how I did it).
