A circular and tactile jog wheel that's different from the one available on the 5GBis located under the monochrome display. Additionally, the players have a reasonable 16 hours of rated battery life and include on-the-go playlist capabilities. The players lack features such as a photo-friendly color screen, FM radio, or recording options; they are basic players with basic prices. By contrast, the feature-packed 6GB SanDisk Sansa e270 costs $280. However, both 6GB models will ship with an external FM transmitter.
First take: If you need an affordable medium-capacity subscription-ready player with no extra features, then the H1xx series looks like a great bet. We'll have a review and video of the H116 by the end of the week.
