SET UP: The Sansa Clip is about as simple as it gets in this area. It requires no additional software installation. My home system runs XP SP2 with Windows Media Player 11. When I plugged the player in to charge, it was detected and recognized automatically. I told windows to "Take No Action" as the default behavior when the device connects. This allows me to maintain complete control over the syncing process. My unit charged in about an hour.
MUSIC TRANSFER: You have the option of using simple drag and drop of MP3 files to the device as you would a USB flash drive. However, using Windows Media Player allows you the more advanced feature of playlists. Since I primarily use my MP3 player at the gym, I created multiple playlists for warm up, workout, and cool down. The workout lists are about 90 minutes while the others about 20 minutes. I really liked that I was able to create multiples of each for variety. Right now I have three of each with about 1.5 Gb still remaining to use as I please. Using Windows Media Player, you can sync albums, songs, or playlists as you would with any other device. The Sansa Clip fully supports all of these options so it is a nice low effort, highly functional set up.Read more ›

- larger body than the 2nd and 3rd generation iPod shuffles
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.
I definitely recommend the larger 2GB option. For those needing more space, you will have to explore the Creative Zen, Sandisk Sansa, Sansa View or new iPod Nano.Read more ›
First, moving music to the player was remarkably easy. I just plugged it in, and the player showed up in Windows Explorer. I copied MP3s from my computer, with no specific directory/file structure to follow, and they showed up, sorted correctly by artist/album/song, etc. No extra software to use! No iTunes or WMP or Rhapsody or LockYourMusicIntoOurStore stuff!
Second, this is a fine interface. Yes, it is text-only. But that is how I always listened on my phone anyway, I scrolled through the album titles and when I found the one I wanted, I hit "play". Naturally, if you REALLY NEED to see cover art, get a different player. But if you are buying music, and not cover art (and also not little plastic disks and boxes), then get this player.
Now I have already purchased eight albums from Amazon in MP3 format, with no problems putting them onto the player. Great playback quality, easy to use. I won't go back... I can't go back...
FUNCTION: iPod Shuffle (similar price at time of review) vs. Sansa Clip MP3 player
a. Sansa Clip has 2GB capacity, the iPod Shuffle has only 1GB
b. Sansa Clip has FM radio iPod Shuffle does NOT
c. Clip has voice recording (great for documenting flashes of genius and things to remember when you can't write it down), the Shuffle does NOT
d. Both will play your music, books on tape, etc.
e. Both have good sound quality
f. iPod is "cooler" but you get much less for your dollar just to be cool
EASE OF USE: iPod Shuffle vs. Sansa Clip MP3 player
a. Clip has a view screen to find and play your selection - iPod Shuffle does NOT, making finding what you want to listen to a real pain
b. The Clip makes it easy to sync (transfer) music with drag & drop, the Shuffle does NOT have a drag and drop function
I use it when I take walks, go to the gym, and do stuff around the house. It's tiny so I got a red one to make it easier to find. As far as I'm concerned it is very "cool" for the price, function and ease of use!
