Sandisk Sansa Connect Portable Music Player Page 3
Sansa Connect doesn't do video, but it does do slide shows. You can view Flickr photos, either your own or those from anyone who has chosen to go public, even as you play music. And, unlike a big-screen TV, the Sansa Connect can be turned sideways for landscape mode without giving you a hernia, though as on many portables the screen can be difficult to see in direct sunlight. Pull the earphones out of their jack, and the mono speaker on the back of the Sansa kicks in. It makes a tinny sound, but at least you're finally listening wire-free.
BOTTOM LINE There's really only one reason to choose the Sansa Connect over a conventional iPod: WiFi connectivity. Streaming Internet radio straight to your head without a computer is cutting-edge stuff for sure. Sorry to say, then, that the dearth of reliable Wi-Fi hot spots outside your own home may make the Sansa Connect's most compelling feature more of a curiosity than a practical alternative to loading your player with a computer and USB cable.
