The Connect looks like a chunkier version of a standard music player, with a protruding aerial at the top. It’s particularly chunky for a 4 GB player with a 2.2" screen but with a MicroSD slot and the WiFi connection, you get a much larger choice of music than with a much smaller 4 GB iPod nano. There’s even a built-in speaker that you can set to turn on automatically when you unplug the headphones - much better than offering a friend one earbud.

The Connect has the familiar blue-lit scroll wheel of most Sansa players, with separate volume controls on the side and two soft buttons for the extra options that come with wireless. Press the Home button at the top of the scroll wheel for colorful icons illustrating the different functions, most of which use wireless one way or another.
