4 out of 5 eggsClip+ is better

Pros: -Cheap
-Color screen, for whatever that's worth

Cons: -Clip+ has better battery life, and stable Rockbox port (awesome x10)

Other Thoughts: This player is fine, but is in no way superior to the Clip+. The color screen is too small to really be an advantage.

1 out of 5 eggsNice while it lasted.

Pros: Holds a decent amount of music. Compact and usually easy to use.

Cons: I've owned this unit for 6 months and 5 days. I use it once a week for a 3-4 hour period, then a 1-2 hour break, then another 3-4 hour period. Today it decided to cease all functioning in mid-stride. I did not touch it or bump it. I've never dropped the unit. It just died. I'm really not happy at all about now having to replace this & go through all the effort I made to put the entertainment I wanted to take with me onto a new unit. I'll have to search, convert, tag, & upload it all again. Yes I know I could have saved a back up, but since I already have the original files, and this unit is still new in my opinion, I did not feel the need to do this since space is important on my hard drives.
This doesn't have a locking control that slides & stays locked like previous models. The power button is on the top, turning the unit on/off by holding the button down. To lock the player so unintended pressing doesn't change the playback mode, you press the power button briefly. The problem with this is if you accidentally touch that button, the unit unlocks & the controls are active again & the next touch of any control will cease your playback. The original design of a sliding control for locking the unit doesn't allow for that mistake.
This unit cannot be charged & used at the same time, nor was I ever able to enable playback of media on the unit through my computer.
There is no way to change a dead battery on this unit. Instead you get to discard the unit and buy a new one. This is of course the way everything is made these days but still I would have like to have seen that when I was researching this before I bought it. I really resent this form of marketing.
I was never able to get this unit to play other file types had to convert everything I put on it to MP3's. This is possibly a fault of mine though as maybe I didn't know something I needed to know.
A color led screen is nice, but hardly necessary in my opinion, considering this is designed for "active" users who not sitting there looking at the unit. I'd prefer that one of the other issues I have with the design be addressed & gladly give up the color feature. It's actually harder for me to read the information on the colored screen than it is on the older Sans Disc model I have.
Considering this is designed for people on the go, I have to say the controls are not optimal. It's common for me to think I'm pressing the correct area of the control pad but to get a different response than I intended. Very careful attention will decrease the number of times I do this, but that's my point. I'm not paying attention to the unit, I'm active & occupied, & that means I don't have the time to take it off & look at it & figure it out. This isn't me complaining, I'm simply describing the experience that comes with using this unit as it was intended to be used.
The card is a separate source, so music saved to the unit cannot be played with music on the card when in shuffle mode.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this when getting an external hard drive, meaning this wasn't what I was paying attention to during the purchase process. I'll not be distracted during my next purchase & will certainly purchase a warranty for the next MP3 player. My fault for not getting the warranty for this, but my first Sans Disc player has lasted for years, & really, with modern technology where it is today, there really is no excuse for something to suddenly stop working. Why do you think they design these so that when the rechargeable battery dies it can't be replaced!? Maybe I'll try one more time.

Also, we recommend you to please update your Sansa Player with latest firmware. Please refer to the link below for the instructions on how to update the firmware of your Sansa Player:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Player

Pros: * Excellent sound quality (with new earbuds)
* Durable
* Good radio reception
* Very light weight
* Handy clip
* Decent battery life
* Great price
* Accepts SDHD cards

Cons: * Screen unreadable in bright sunlight

Other Thoughts: I have owned this handy little player for about two years after losing an earlier Sansa player. It does everything I need in a take-it-with you player. It is perfect for taking to a workout, pool or tuning out screaming kids on the plane.

One tip is to buy a cheap silicone slip case for it and it will last forever (or until battery dies).

The second tip is to visit the Rock Box site and you can transform this into a completely customized media box, but I have other devices to do that.

And know the reset procedure of holding down the power button for +20 seconds. I owned this one for a couple years before I had to reset it, almost threw it out.

1 out of 5 eggsUtter Device failure

Pros: Low cost MP3 player that is on Audible.com's very short list of MP3's that can play their heavily DRM'ed software.

Cons: I was just loading some new audiobooks onto my SanDisk (29/05/13) when the Audible software told me it lost connection to the device. My OS gave me the same warning and I glanced over to the device to see the screen giving a display remnant of a TV losing reception, then go blank. I had just charged it, but went through all of the normal trouble shooting antics. It had been bought in Feb 2013 and has already died. I am completely unable to get Windows or Mac OS 10 to register the device, and am considering it dead.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Unreliable

Other Thoughts: The first one I received was dead on arrival. After the flower logo appeared, it would pause indefinitely on a "Refreshing your media" screen. I RMA'd it and sent it back.

Now I have had the second one for 3 days and it won't boot. It just sits indefinitely on the flower logo.

Hidden under the clip is "Made in China." You get what you pay for. Caveat emptor.

4 out of 5 eggsIgnore most 1-star reviews

Pros: small, lightweight. The unit is so lightweight, you could probably drop this 20 feet onto pavement with only cosmetic damage. Clip keeps player snug on pocket while at the gym. Headphones arent too bad, just make sure you adjust equalizer settings to the music you listen too, it will instantly make the sound more clear. There are lots of things you can tweak in the settings. Picture is large enough and good enough quality to see what album you are listening to. User interface is self explanatory, no need to read directions. This is the best value mp3 player I know of. Sure, there may be better players, but at more than double the cost.

Cons: Battery life is more like 10 hours, but this is an estimate, I havent actually timed it. The clip is not removeable, but that isnt a big deal.

Other Thoughts: Most of the "one star" reviews claim that it stopped working, or it wouldnt turn on, etc. after they charged it the first time or soon after purchasing it. This is because those people arent able to google things like "my clip zip wont turn on". This problem happened to me. I googled the problem. Answer: Simply press power button in for 30 seconds, release power button, and then press power button again in the normal power on fashion. That should fix the problem. This happened because I turned my computer off while I was charging the mp3 player. I wont do that again. SO, IGNORE A LOT OF THOSE 1-STAR REVIEWS!

3 out of 5 eggsDropped support

Pros: Small, works, sounds OK

Cons: Just like Creative, Sandisk drops support quickly. As new versions of OS's come out they don't update their driver software. The software always reports the battery is critically low in Windows 7. If you look up the problem it is blamed on Microsoft for not updating support for the device in Windows 7. Why is MS responsible for updating the drivers for Sandisk's devices??? Vista is the latest software written for it at Sandisk. I guess this is the way they sell new models. It will last but hang on to your old computers so you can still use it.

5 out of 5 eggsjust like always

Pros: small, compact, so easy to add and remove files

Cons: not water proof, and will not survive falling from your cycle onto the hwy at high amounts of speed

Other Thoughts: i bought a sansdisk clip a few years ago not expecting much. man was a wrong. i still have my first one before you could add extra storage. i strap them to my motorcycle and plug them into my speakers and crank it up. i have since bought ones for my 2 nephews 3 nieces a few for the wife ( she keeps losing them ). i will never buy an eyepad why spend 4 to 5 times as much for the same if not better product
