Last week, SanDisk announced a price drop on the Sansa Connect, the company's WiFi-compatible MP3 player. SanDisk has knocked an impressive $100 off the original MSRP, bringing the 4GB device down to a reasonable $149.99. The price drop is strategic, coinciding with the impending start of the school year. Regardless, it's a wise move for SanDisk, as many potential users were no doubt turned off by the initially high price point. The new tag makes the wireless player a great value.
