Sansa View Released - 32GB Model Coming Soon?comment: 20 | Tuesday, October 23 (2007) 02:29PM | Posted by Michael
I've been waiting a long time for the Sansa View's release. Well, my anticipation was originally for the now defunct PMP prototype shown at CES in January. The new View is more akin to the e200 series. It enters into a crowded market of flash PMP's with high capacities, larger screens, and better video playback. It supports a number of codecs including, AAC, H.264, and AVI. Interested? If so, head on down to your local Best Buy and pick one up. The 16GB model is just $199, and the 8GB $149.
If 16GB (plus the microSDHC expansion) still isn't enough for you, Sandisk may have another model up their sleeves. Their site leaked info for a 32GB model, priced at $330. The price is a little steep, but we're talking about a 30GB player made entirely of flash. One of our members has already picked up the View and has provided his impressions in our forum. So far he seems fairly pleased with the player, but as of now, he has not been able to play tracks back gaplessly (as advertised). Gapless playback would certainly propel this player ahead of its closest competitors (e.g. Insignia Pilot), so we'll keep you posted on whether it's truly gapless or not. Additionally, his player has hanged on a number of ooccasions. it seems like a quick FW upgrade may be in order.

Thanks, Jeff and javamon
Update: It looks like Sandisk has removed the 32GB listing from the View's Spec list. They've also removed pricing information. I was told that other products also listed a 32GB model so this may just be a false alarm. I'm still leaning towards it being true since they also had pricing listed for a 32GB model. We'll keep you posted if we find out more.
