Obviously you shuold read thru the forums and form your opinion. You have done this already right?

User feedback on the Fuze is MUCH better than the View. The Fuze+ is very much personal preferences at the moment. Some seem to love the Fuze+ and others seem to hate it.

BTW, any idea where in Canada you will be buying the View? Because I don't recall seeing a new one in a few months. And supplies of the Fuze are getting low.

IMHO do NOT get the Sansa View. It is old and outdated, and honestly I think you should post in the cowon forums because the J3 is considered the best media player on the market now. If you must get a new player than the Fuze or Fuze+ is the better choice

While it's always good to look through the forum so you can form your own opinion, please take this advice:

Run away from the View as fast as you can!!! The Fuse is so much better in so many ways, including SQ and form factor.

The View sucks, and was abandoned by SanDisk mid-2008 support-wise. I think the only reason they are still available to buy is that they had left-over stock. If that is not the case, and they are still being assembled, then SanDisk should be crucified for still selling them.

For both questions, you'd be much better reading the forums, reviews, etc, instaed of dealing with quick responses in this thread.

The Fuze and the Fuze+ are very different. Touch screen that many do not like on the Fuze+., Read the reviews in the Fuze+ forum. Make sure you read the good and the bad, and try to form your own opinion.

The Fuze is a nice audio player. Most of the complaints about Fuze are with how it handles video, or how it works as voice recorder(imo no mp3 players work well as a voice recorder). I have had a Fuze for over 2 years.

The Fuze+ might eventually be a nice player, but for now there are too many firmware issues. Imo it should be avoided until they get the issues resolved.

The Clip+ is nice if you want a tiny audio only player, and don't mind 12 hours or so of battery life.
