The new Sandisk Sansa Clip has the advantages of the iPod shuffle with some of the compatibility, feature, and price benefits of other MP3 players. Unlike the Sansa Express, which you can plug in directly into your USB port, the clip uses a standard USB B cable.
The Clip is definitely a little bigger than the iPod shuffle, but not by much. It has a great feel and a nicer clip. It is also priced VERY well for the holidays. It fills the market for a starter MP3, workout unit, or gift.
The rechargable battery seems better than the Creative Zen Stone Plus and gives you a respectable 15 hours. The sound is nice. The earbuds are passable for beginners but most people will replace them. As for durability, only time will tell; so far it's holding up nicely.
The Zen Clip also has a larger 2GB option. For those needing more space, you will have to explore the Creative Zen, Sandisk Sansa View or new iPod Nano. All of those units have higher price tags.Read more ›
This player has a few things greatly improved over their older ones (like the Sansa e260 I own). It has about the best sound quality out of any MP3 player I have seen. It also has a nice seemless quick fade from one song to the next. I use my MP3 players for listeming to audio books in MP3 format. Some of these are 20+ hours long. My old player took forever to fastforward through, about a 20:1 fast forward, so yes, fast forwarding 10 hours would take about 30 minutes. Now this one has a progressively accelerated fast forward that can run through hours of MP3s in 10 seconds. Also when you turn off the MP3 player it will start back at the exact spot you left off and if it was playing when you turned it off then it will start playing automatically when you turn it back on. It also start up in only a few seconds.
The only issues I see is lack of colors on the 1GB version and maybe a few more colors overall would be nice. The only bug I found is that it does not change the hours on the time elapsed counter and leaves it at 0, but the progression bar is still right.
I was so impressed with the 2GB pink one that I got for my girlfriend that I got a 2GB black one for myself... yes to replace my more expensive 4GB Sansa e260. If I could give it 6 stars I would.
Pros: It's small- the size of a matchbox- and easily and firmly clips to shirt or pants. The controls are very easy to use and the screen is easy to see. The sound quality is very good when used with better headphones than those that came with it. You can play and record from FM radio. And, most importantly for me, it works with Audible downloads.
It also looks good. I have the red one and many people have asked about it and where to buy one.
Cons: The sound quality of the voice recorder could use improvement. And, as someone mentioned, there's a glitch in the counter that impacts files that are over an hour in length other than Audible files. Supposedly Sandisk is working on this and there will be a firmware adjustment at some point.
For anyone who wants a player with storage of 2gb or less, the Clip is the best available.
Because of the conversion process, it does take MUCH LONGER to transfer an audiobook to an iPod so in my opinion, the Sansa Clip a still the superior product for this usage.
Update: Battery on my Clip gave up charging just before the one year warranty period was over. I use it almost daily. I contacted Sansa and was able to obtain a replacement Clip at no charge. They did need to know when I purchased it (Amazon makes this easy with a shipping invoice available in your purchasing history.) Sansa did want to know if I had the original box but when I did not, it was not an issue. Sansa provided a postage paid label to return the dead Clip. My replacement is working great. This was very good customer service experience for me.
I got this mp3 player in order to listen to Overdrive audiobooks that I download from the public library. I have an IPod that I happily use with my Audible books but Ipods were not compatible with Overdrive at the time I purchased this. This is no longer the case. See above.
The Overdrive audio software works perfectly with the device and books transfer very easily.
Update: It is a good idea to go ahead and install the SanDisk Firmware Updater on your computer at [...]
It automatically checks for firmware updates whenever when I plug in my Clip.Read more ›

As much as I love the size, sound, price of Sandisks, they keep malfunctioning or breaking on me. For no apparent reason, they start to skip, or just go dead. Read morePublished 9 months ago by GAM
