SanDisk launches new Sansa Fuze+ which starts under $100

With all the hype surrounding Apple's impending launch of new iPods, it's sometimes easy to forget about some of the the key players in the MP3 player market. One of the big names we haven't heard from in a while is SanDisk, and they're debuting the new Sansa Fuze+ today.

The Sansa Fuze+ is the successor to the older Sansa Fuze and features a completely redesigned body. The player incorporates a 2.4" QVGA LCD; a "film strip" GUI which makes allows quick navigation through photos, music, and video with left/right finger swipes; and FM radio support.

Other features include a microSDHC card slot for expanded storage capacity (SanDisk slotRadio is supported) and a microphone for audio recording. The Sansa Fuze+ can operate for 24 hours straight while playing only audio; that figure drops to five hours when playing video.

“The Sansa Fuze+ is the most versatile portable media player available for under $100,” said Tom Bailey, senior director, AV retail, SanDisk. “We developed an entirely new product to provide consumers with a stylish, affordable device that performs exactly as a sophisticated yet easy to use player should.”

The Sansa Fuze+ is available today in capacities of 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB with MSRPs of $79, $89, and $119 respectively (available colors include red, white, black, blue and purple).

Sansa $79?

It really doesn't matter if it is ipod or sansa or many other mp3
They just cost too much for a simple device that they are.
I'd say $20-$40 range is the correct range for most of them...

He's right, Sandisk refurb MP3 players ARE in the $20-40 range, and I gotta agree with the pro-Sandisk sentiment in these comments. Had an e260 for ~3 years and still as good as the day I got it (I'll never find another clear poly case for it though which it could really use)

Agreed. My Clip+ sounds great, durable (already tested that a bit) and small enough to allow me to use it during a workout without having to worry about extra weight or bulk. The UI is pretty straight forward (for the most part) and made navigating through my iPod Touch a bit more work for certain things. I only paid $50 for the 8GB Clip+ and it sounds much better than the $300 iPod Touch (came free with the MacBook after rebate).
