‡ These slotRadio cards contain songs pre-programmed in music playlists for unlimited playback with slotRadio card compatible devices only. Visit slotRadio.com for slotRadio compatible devices. Much like radio, these songs are played in sequence and cannot be rewound or re-arranged, yet individual songs can be skipped as often as you want. Song and playlist files cannot be copied or viewed (for example on a PC).
Top customer reviews
- 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.
- two minor button placement changes (improvement)
- UI is a bit smoother (menus scroll now)
- volume normalizing/gain
- micro-SD slot for up to 16 added gigs (which is huge)
- a little thicker, probably due to SD support
- clip is no longer removable (depending on your preference, this is a good or bad thing-guess you could just rip it off and file it down if you wanted to)
As always, it sounds great and blows away the iPod Shuffle in terms of value. So light and small--great for the gym. If you need your mp3 player to play games, surf the internet or serve double purpose as a grocery list, then this isn't for you, but if you're on a budget or just need something that plays music and does so well, this is the one.
It's an excellent product despite some issues:
This player sometimes does experience "sudden death" (not turning on/responding) when absolutely nothing appears to revive it.
Previously, I bought a clip+ from BB. In less than a week, it just stopped playing and turned itself off in the middle of a song. There was nothing that I could do to turn it back on. After reading many similar experiences on the web and thinking it was defective, I returned it back to BB.
I knew the battery was fully charged, and the wma file had been played successfully on the clip+ several times before. So it's not a corrupted song file that caused the player to "crash." Even so, it should "reboot" when the device was reset.
All signs pointed to the battery that might have been internally dislodged although it's new and has never been dropped or abused.
However after seeing some clip+ disassembled pictures on the Internet, it seems that a new clip+ that hasn't been abused, the chance of "real" hardware failure is probably remote. The abundance of refurbished clip+ for sale on the web supports this thought. The death of clip+ was thus mostly likely due to quirky firmware issues.
Try the following steps if the clip+ does not response, the first two from Sandisk clip+ manual/forums:
1. Press and hold the on/off button for 20 sec to reset,
2. Press and hold the Select (center) button while connecting the device to the PC forcing it into MSC mode. Leave it connected for approximately 2 to 3 hours to "charge,"
3. If neither step 1 or 2 works, disconnect clip+ from charging device and let it "discharge" for 2 to 3 days or more to simulate a "true" on/off or "cold" reset/reboot.
To minimize the firmware related problems, steps below may help:
1. Put clip+ in MSC mode (Settings | System Settings | USB Mode | MSC).
2. Use built-in memory only for original Sandisk stock files (a 2G clip will suffice), and store music files only on the external card. A 4G or 8G Class 4 microSDHC is quite inexpensive (faster card is not needed).
That's internal storage used only for "boot" and the external only for "data." Although the Sansa firmware supposedly runs entirely from flash memory and unlike Rockbox that resides on your drive.
During troubleshoot, the external card can be removed so the firmware can be up in a simpler environment (as in Windows/browser "safe" mode). However, the microSDHC card may be "locked" and cannot be removed if clip+ is not power on (a sophisticated design feature).
3. If the device will not be used for a long time, the battery should be fully charged. Otherwise charge (<35%) the device as needed. During charging, the computer cannot be suddenly put in sleep mode. Lithium polymer battery charges 70% in 1/3 of total charge time.
Power indicator icon sometimes can be deceiving, perhaps due to arithmetic rounding. Use (Settings | System Settings | Info | Power).
4. Proper tagging is both useful and file integrity. mp3tag is excellent.
5. Press Home button "twice" returns back to the display where the Music was playing/left off (as in Power Saver timed out).
Hope that helps with clip+ not turning on/responding problem.
It sounds AMAZING. It obviously comes with a set of earphones too, but I use my Phillips one with this and It works like a charm.
This sansa looks very stylish and it is so tiny and light i barely feel it on me! It weights NOTHING. The clip is great, I added a 16gb card and i'm currently LOVING my little baby!
It's a great gift for people who love listening to music without having to use a bulky, annoying buggy and laggy smartphone for that. Come on.
It is just a pleasure to have this little thing! I am looking forward to installing rockbox on it, thought i can't complain of the original firmware program. It does more than enough and I am incredibly satisfied with this wonderful product!
