5 out of 5 eggs simple, straightforward, RockBox compatible, versatile 06/29/2013

This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 1.0" Black 8GB MP3 Player

Pros:

Bought this in 2010 to replace my 2GB Creative Zen Nano Plus which finally died (RIP little guy, even though your 128MB Nomad Muvo brother strangely still lives).

It's nice and compact, has great battery life, no proprietary software for file management, and it Just Works. I don't like all the bulky, gaudy MP3 players out there, I like my electronics to be no-nonsense.

You can also add a 32GB MicroSD card and you've got a 40GB MP3 player for dirt cheap. (allegedly, it's possible to get a 64GB card to work with the unit, though there might be a few hoops to jump through to make it happen)

Cons:

This model has a documented bug with playback, but it is practically unnoticeable to almost everyone.

The rate of playback is just shy of 1% faster than it should be... if you're a musician or audiophile, you may notice a slight difference in pitch when playing your music... see Other Thoughts

Other Thoughts:

Thankfully, RockBox is easily installed on the Clip+ without any physical modification/flashing of the device or voiding the warranty. A simple matter of drag & drop and you're good to go, and it's just as easy to uninstall, too.

RockBox for Clip+ is able to compensate for the playback speed bug... not to mention a more comprehensive playlist system, wider filetype compatibility, skinnable/themed interface, better battery life, customizable settings, more flexible EQ, etc etc
