5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice technical improvements, but didn't need to "fix" the outside of it., September 19, 2009
This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 4 GB MP3 Player (Blue) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
So recently, because I love my Sansa Clip so much for exercising, and I thought I could use one more, I picked one of these up at Bestbuy. I have used it for about a week so I can't say anything about the longetivity of the new Clip Plus, but I can tell you about everything else. First I will give you the cons since there is only one and that is also only about preference. I personally LOVED the sleek look of the original sansa clip, but that has been replaced with a sort of glittery finish on the front. That is about it and to add to this, everything else from the outside such as the plastic used has been revamped to feel better in your hands and is just overall better quality. Now on to the most important part, the features. The main thing that sets this apart from the original clip is the addition of a microSD card slot. This can take up to a 32gb microSD card, so if you were to pair one with this, you could potentially get a 36(!)gb memory for this puny little item. That is the next thing I will get into, the size. If you haven't ever heard about the original sansa clip, basically, Sandisk designed this line of Sansa for portability and mainly for exercise. It feels really good in the hand and the non removable clip on the back can clip on to virtually anything. Next is the display. The menu remains much of the same, but Sansa also added slotRadio compatibility and a nicer flow to menu if you're into that. Finally we'll go to the placement of the buttons. On the old sansa clip, there was a button the side for power and hold, but a lot of clip owners including me found that uncomfortable. To cope with this, Sandisk put the power button on the top and put the hold funtion to holding the home button for about 3 seconds. So overall, this is a fantastic MP3 player in any category, but if you are in the market for one for the gym, pass up the Ipod Shuffle for 79$ with no screen and counter-intuitiveness(in my opinion) and get this really nice compact MP3 player for only 50$ for the 4gb, 40$ for the 2gb and 70$ for the 8gb. Thank you and I hope this review helps.

To make your review easier to read I would suggest you press the "enter" key on your keyboard with each change of an idea train of thought. This will start a new paragraph and provide an easier read. Thank you...

Can't believe you are complaining about <enter>. If you don't like the text, don't read this person's review.

Loved the review, but I understand the comment about the format. It was hard for some to read (me) but I assume that my ADD is acting up.
One question, the battary only goes for 8- 10 hrs, as compared to my Phillips gogear, which goes 20+ hrs.
The Philips has OTHER problems.
Any comments ?

Its a tradeoff between the clip's size and weight. It is intended to able to be clipped to things without weighing them down much or falling off... a larger battery would be negative in this sense. Although a longer battery life is always better, I don't have complaints about the clip.

Hi, the question is - do you know for a fact that it can be expanded with a 32 GB card? THis is the most important factor for me, but this is not mentioned in the description. If you are sure the 4GB can be expanded with another 32 GB, I will buy it. If not- I won't. Can you please let me know where you got this information and is that a guarantee...

"The Sansa Clip+ player plays slotMusic cards, slotRadio cards, or your own content on a microSD/microSDHC card (up to 32GB)."

I read a couple reviews, and I like the sound of this, because I can't read menus to well on a small screen, and its advertised as very easy to navigate without a lot of extra clutter. Is this so?
Also, two reviews I read mention the IPod shuffle. This thing keeps your albums and songs in order, right? Thanks
By the way, well-written review!
