Ideal Music Player for Exercising and Commuting
The Sansa Clip Zip was designed with active music listeners in mind. It features a unique clip design: the back panel of the device closes on a hinge, and can firmly fasten to a backpack or article of clothing. This makes it an ideal accessory for joggers, athletes, and anyone else who wants to enjoy music while on the move.
The player is light and compact, measuring only 2-1/4 inches tall and weighing less than 16 grams, so you won't feel encumbered while exercising. And with the player's rechargeable battery that lasts up to 15 hours, you'll rarely have to worry about charging the battery.†
Integrated Stopwatch, FM Radio, and More
In addition to playing music, the Sansa Clip Zip can play audiobooks and podcasts and offers several other convenient features. The player is equipped with an FM radio receiver, so you can enjoy your favorite stations while you're on the go. A voice recorder is also included, allowing you to leave spoken reminders for yourself. It even has an integrated stopwatch, which you can use to time your workouts.
Compatible with a Variety of Audio Formats and Services
This versatile player supports a broad range of digital audio formats, including MP3, WMA, secure WMA, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC. It is also compatible with AAC, allowing the player to interface with non-DRM files in your iTunes library. You'll be able to enjoy audio from nearly any source--all while avoiding the nuisance of file compression and conversion.
The Sansa Clip Zip has also been optimized for use with a variety of music services. Music downloaded from Rhapsody, eMusic, or Napster matches particularly well with the player.
Full-Color Screen with Graphical User Interface
The Sansa Clip Zip boasts a backlit, full-color 1.1-inch screen. The screen renders your album art in vibrant detail and also displays the time and battery life. The player uses a graphical user interface that makes browsing your music collection effortless. Song playback is also easy to control, thanks to an intuitive set of front-panel buttons.
Expandable Memory for a Large Music Library
The Sansa Clip Zip comes with 4 GB or 8 GB of onboard memory, offering enough space for hundreds of songs, podcasts, and audiobooks.* If you need additional space, you can use the player's microSD/microSDHC card slot to expand your player's capacity.**

Top Customer Reviews
I have many MP3 capable products and reasons why I am very fond of this little one for my new found effort. I have the following list of products and have tried my:
Nexus S (too big and heavy for running, no physical buttons)
iPod touch 4th Gen (Big, expensive at the storage size i wanted and no buttons for music controls)
iPod Nano 4thGen (little, has a clip, but why the hell can't they include buttons?)
iPod shuffle (not enough storage and I don't want to mix in my metal songs from lifting weights into my up beat running songs...)
The clip Zip sounds great, is very small, has a clip and has physical buttons.
It fits every need i want. The bonus is the MicroSD slot, I can not stress this enough. Skip the 8GB version and get the 4GB and pair it with a 16 or 32GB card. Bam 20-36GB of storage, insanely small and still clocks in under $100.
Low rez color screen does what it needs to. Won't knock people over but tells you whats playing with album art.
As for the other areas, the stop watch works like a stop watch...It keeps time and does splits. Not a huge thing and if you are using a polar watch or at a gym, the machine you are on will do just as well and be more convenient. In a pinch it works.
The FM radio works fine. I live in a rural area, so my station choices are limited. From my experience, it works just fine if you are in an area with good recption.
*UPDATE* MM works on updated firmware...still broken on stock firmware. Drag and drop also works, so you have that going for you.
General gripe: The included headphones are perfect for giving to people you hate. You can use them, i guess, if you want to torture yourself, but like any MP3 player, Apple or otherwise, get some better phones...your ears and your music will appreciate it.
Considering you would need to pay twice as much for an iPod with fewer features, no physical buttons and no storage expansion, just to run in a hampster wheel, save your scratch and get this guy. You will be glad you did, as it looks good, sounds good and does a it in a small package that just screams to be used in your fitness routine.
Update of an update: A new firmware patch was released, make sure to update your new Clip Zip or you will experience the "Static Blast" between some of your songs...not fun, but it has been addressed, so make sure to update right away.
When I manually load audiobook mp3 files on the Clip Zip, it classifies them as songs on different albums by one artist. If I select "artist" it plays all the 'track #1s' in sequence and then all the 'track #2s', etc. If I choose "album" it plays that set of files but then I have to search around for the next cryptically-named "album" in the book. That works, sort of, but who wants to stop exercising to fiddle around with an mp3 player for 10 minutes searching for the next section of a book?
When I use Windows Media Player to make a playlist of an audiobook's tracks and then sync them with the Sansa, the process fails -- no playlist is on the Sansa and the book is organized exactly as it was using drag-and-drop.
Same thing happens with iTunes, except iTunes itself crashes half the time too.
Audible.com books? Sorry, the audible format is not supported.
If you want to listen to music on a cheap mp3 player, buy the Clip Zip. If you want to play an audiobook, forget about it -- it's useless.
Several people have offered comments and work-arounds that have been very helpful. First of all, the problem with Audible compatibility apparently belongs to Audible.com, not SanDisk. Second, Windows Media Player does work with the Clip Zip. Third, even without built-in Audible support, you can manually add Audible books to the Clip Zip.
I've added one star to my rating. It's OK as it is now and when Audible.com (an Amazon subsidiary, BTW) changes the Audible Manager it should move up to "pretty good" rating -- actually a "good for the price" rating.
Second addendum (December 15, 2011):
1) I'm told that Audible.com now supports this device.
2) There's a workaround for the problem I had with playing mp3 audiobooks. Both Andy Sexton and John R. Ridley came up with the workaround and posted it in the comments to this review. Quoting Mr. Ridley: "If you put audiobooks into the audiobook folder, or set the genre in the MP3 tags as "AUDIOBOOK" the Clip Zip will handle them properly, with proper resume points and no need to make playlists or anything." Thank you Andy and John!
Third addendum (April 26, 2013)
Apparently here are workarounds for the mp3 file order problem that I experienced.
Fred Langa with WindowsSecrets.com says: "There are other tricks and workarounds, too, that enthusiasts have developed for copying and playing audiobook chapters, MP3s, or other media files in a specific order. For example, see the AnandTech forum thread, 'Tell Windows the order in which to copy files?' ([...] or the MurrayMoffatt.com article, 'Sort MP3 files on MP3 player' ([...]"
