The Good The SanDisk Sansa Express features a handy plug-and-play design; it's inexpensive; it offers several desirable extras such as an FM tuner, support for protected WMAs, and a MicroSD expansion slot.

The Bad The screen of the Sansa Express is tiny and it's only capable of displaying two colors, so there's no album art or photo support.

The Bottom Line The SanDisk Sansa Express is a solid choice for those who need an ultraconvenient MP3 player with a decent smattering of features.

SanDisk Sansa Express

Ever since Apple abandoned the design feature with the release of the second-generation iPod Shuffle, MP3 players with built-in USB have seemed to go out of fashion. It's a bit of a shame, as this type of device is quite handy for some users. So it's nice to see SanDisk reintroducing the feature with the Sansa Express (1GB), a compact flash player with an array of desirable features and a palatable price tag of $59.99.
