SanDisk Sansa e270 (6GB) MP3 player review

I'm going to start this review with a solemn promise - From this point onwards, I will make no direct reference to the iPod.  We all know that Apple's seminal portable media players are very much the 800 pound gorilla in the market and that, between their smart user interface, iTunes and the like, coupled with the 'cool' factor that has associated itself with being an owner of such players, beating them in any significant way in the market at present is nigh-on an impossibility.

However, these factors don't mean that there is any shortage of either money or competition in the MP3 player market, with plenty of niches to fill from both pricing and functionality points of view.  Up until recently, Apple's biggest competition has come courtesy of Creative Labs, but now there's a new kid on the block, and they're hungry for success.

Enter SanDisk - Giant of the flash storage card market.  This claim to fame has left the company ideally placed to join the world of the flash-based MP3 player, and they have done so to astounding effect, jumping into the number two spot for MP3 player sales behind Apple in no time at all.  The flagship of SanDisk's success is their new range of Sansa players, and it is just such a player we will be looking at today - Enter the 6GB Sansa e270.  Can it do the business?  Read on as we put it through its paces to find out.
