2 out of 5 eggs91 days and died

Pros: good price for a player I could leave in truck or take a walk with. expandable memory made it hold more music then I can listen to in a year. very simple and easy to use.

Cons: locked up from time to time and after loading new file to it, it could sit for an hour or more on a screen saying updating media. Now for final time locked there and never got off the screen. when I tried to reset per the sandisk website it doesn't reset just comes up to flower screen and is a brick. none of my PC's see it or the 32gb micro SD card smoked that too it seems. purchased 10/13/2013 so just over the 90 but not a year. now start the how to I get warranty lol and that won't get my micro SD replaced. good price but you get what you pay for, had to buy another brand local as i use it on long drives.

Other Thoughts: by searching internet the lockups and flower screen brick, are common by the hundred if not thousands. with no real fix by manufacturer. If PC doesn't see it don't tell me to reload firmware, DA! needs a real hard reset.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsDo You Feel Lucky?

Pros: For me, the best attribute of both the Sansa Clip+ and Zip is freedom from the restrictions imposed on music by the corporate giant from Cupertino. The second best attribute is splendid performance for the price. Especially for runners and others who value small size and do not need video, the Sansa units are arguably the best on the market. With decent earbuds the sound is fantastic.

Cons: The downside? Clearly it is their abysmal reliability. In the past three years, I have owned one Clip and four Zips. One of units now is barely functioning and the others have died. Time to failure was 18 months for the Clip + and 2-3 months for the Zips. Their patterns of demise were all different. Unfortunately, many competing brands are reported to be even less reliable.

Other Thoughts: Examination of over 6,000 buyer ratings on another site indicates that 70.2% of the + devices and 64.9% of the Zips were given 4 or 5 stars. This provides an estimate of the odds of purchasing a fully functional device. The difference favoring the Plus is not large but it is statistically significant. I felt lucky and ordered another Clip + before good sense kicked in. As wonderful as the Zip may be, I have not had much luck with that product. Besides, it has numerous features that I do not need. The belt clip on the Clip + will probably break (just as the previous one did), but it is easy to add a more durable clip with a hot-glue gun and an alligator clip or a miniature bag clip.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Awesome player, it plays anything and you can't beat if for the price. Syncs no problem with Mediamonkey.

Cons: Wish there was more EQ customization.

Other Thoughts: Best player I've had vs. iPod, Zune legacy, Mosaic, Zune HD, and all others in recent memory.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap, versatile, expandable, loveable. THE PERFECT FLAC PLAYER

Pros: - FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, AAC and MP3 (a couple others as well) makes it the best mobile audiophile choice for a backup or primary music player.

- Light, half on oz? I hardly know I have it.

- MTC and MSC support making it compatible with every operating system unless you drank the kool-aid and own a mac. I use winamp and its just as easy to fill as my good ol' sandisk 2GB from 2006.

- Micro SD slot, still gets me excited I have a 32GB card + 8GB internal.

- Cheap for what you get.

- Fast boot time after media has been loaded. If you have problems flash the firmware. After you add music or remove the card it has to scan it so it takes a minute to check the library, a feature I appreciate.

Cons: - Flimsy Plastic but its light enough that a drop won't break it, but the clip will break, I can tell.

- The battery isn't replaceable as far as I can tell. But I might just buy another one for schnitzel anyway.

- The Device doesn't allow the SD card and the internal storage to be combined into one volume but this provides some pluses for those who want to use the SD card separate.

Other Thoughts: All in all, I value this more than I do my IPhone. If you are worried about other reviews keep in mind most of these people wouldn't know how to manually flash a torch ^^

There is quite a bit of info found on random Sandisk forums for those nubs that are having trouble.

I THREW OUT THE HEAD PHONES. Didn't even try them, if there was a package that had the option to leave them out I would pick it.

If you're looking for a FLAC player, get this. I will update my review as time goes on, but I would give it 4.5 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsVery small but can be enlarged 2 mega size

Pros: I can say it sound great though my profession grade ear phones. Easy intuitive interface. Nice little screen to see what up. Plays anything, well worth the investment, pricing is universal. The battery life is very good, not great but look at the size of it. Voice recorder work It is not a great voice recorder but it is just fine for recording yourself not the lecture. Good enough for most things.

Cons: It works though Windows media player, no real software of its own,may be normal I don't know. Watching a avi file on this thing is a joke, video is just a selling feature that's a fake duplicitous selling feature.

Other Thoughts: So far it works, its so tiny I am sure I will lose it in a month or so. I wish the window was a solar cell to recharge the player or just add one, it would add 25 cents to the device. It uses the normal HP phone charger
