The Clip+ does everything it needs to, and nothing it doesn't.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 8 GB MP3 Player (Black) (Electronics)
I owned the first generation clip, and the new 8gb clip+ retains everything that was great about the first while adding all around refinements.
- Overall build quality has improved, but especially with the clip mechanism.
- Files on MicroSD integrate seemlessly with the on board memory.
- The volume and power buttons have more ergonomic placement on the device.
- Sound quality remains great.
- Audiobook files can be sped up slightly to save some "reading" time.
- The interface is a little smoother and nicer to move through.
- The square trackpad makes it easier to navigate without looking at the player. (good for runners)
- No cap on the MicroSD slot, so that could potentially get dirty.
If you don't need gimmicks such as touch screens and web browsers, then this player is quite possibly the best on the market for value, size, and quality. The Clip+ is definitely worth the few extra bucks over what the first gen clip is selling for now.
UPDATE: Having used the product for a while the one thing I'm disappointed with is battery life. The meter drains down to 50% at the expected pace, and then goes from 50% to 0 quite fast. I haven't timed it but i'm sure the battery life (using all default settings) is quite less than the advertised 14-15 hours.

Does ANYONE know of a specific web site that explains how to load audiobooks onto the Sansa? It would be GREATLY appreciated, and will earn you a place in the great beyond.

Google wants to be your friend--forums.sandisk.com. Before you ask any more questions, you should try googling for an answer. I googled _how to load audiobooks to Clip+_ without the underscore characters and got a thread discussing this problem.

I've never done that. Good luck!

Does this mp3 player have a on/off switch or do you press down on the wheel to turn it on and off?

You press on the little button on top on the right side.
But, be careful how you store or carry this device, as it's easy to turn it 'on' accidentally in your knapsack, etc. The larger, video versions of Sandisks have a locking feature.

Has anyone had any problems with the earphone plug in. I have an older version on and my disappointment is I have to hold or turn the plug in from the head phones into the darn thing just correctly and then slide it around every time I use it for anything. I can't clip it cause the slightest jar and then I hear nothing. So I have to hold it all them time and can't take advantage of the clip anyway.

April 29,2012-I have a newer version and had a problem with the earplug too..it played on one side unless I kept fiddling with it so Amazon told me to send it back because the problem obviously was not with the head set but with the SanDisk itself...they sent me a new one and it works fine.
