Excellently small, infinitely expandable,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 8 GB MP3 Player (Black) (Electronics)
I've been very pleased with this small wonder, it is about 1/2 the size of your average portable mp3/video player with an LCD screen, but the OLED screen on the Clip+ is still very readable and easily navigable. I've paired my player with a 16GB MicroSDHC card, giving me enough room for my entire mp3 collection in a player the size of a matchbook.
The player itself is very lightweight, but feels very firm gripped in your hand, and the buttons have a very solid feel when pressed. The clip is non-removable, but probably not a breakage concern like the previous Clip.
Some technical observations:
The Clip+ plays back OGG Vorbis tracks completely gapless. It does not play back mp3 files encoded with LAME gapless (but the gap is extremely small).
The off-pitch playback issues of the original Clip (songs used to play at the wrong speed) are fixed in the Clip+.
Battery life is around the advertised 15 hours. It's not amazing (it trades battery life to have the screen and the slot), but it does last a week of casual listening.
Sound quality is outstanding, better than I ever expected from such an inexpensive player.
FLICKER WARNING: the OLED screen is crisp, but due to how the technology works, the screen must be refreshed like a CRT. Thus, if the refresh rate is too slow, flicker is visible (to those who are sensitive). The refresh rate of the Clip+ screen is very low, and people sensitive to it (including myself) can see flicker.

I have had trouble charging the device. When I place it in the computer the device does not become fully charged. If I use a wall plug the same thing happens. Is it possible that the computer does not recognize the device?
