I have wanted an MP3 player to use while exercising. When I saw this one it looked about like what I was looking for and it was made by a company I recognized. I'm pleased that I bought it. It came with a $15 credit to download whatever so I chose some good, fast techo music. I like the clip in the back which allows me to clip it to the pocket of my shorts. I already had Skull Candy earbuds so am using them instead of the earbuds that came with the player. The sound is good and clear, changing from one song to another is very easy, and the volume control works well.One drawback is that it comes with a mini disk to install something. Haven't yet figured out what that is since I have a slot drive and cannot use mini disks. If you have a tray drive you won't have any problem with it. I'm not comfortable using an adapter so I guess I'll never know what that mini disk does. It doesn't really matter, however, as I am happily using it just for a "metronome" as I am walking/running on the treadmill. I'd recommend it.

I needed an MP3 player. And I didn't want one with limited capacity. The 4GB internal memory is plenty, but one of the best features of the Clip+ is the microSD card slot which can play whatever you copy to a memory card, plus Slot Radio cards. The player automatically detects a card, finds the files on it, and prompts you if you want to play what's on internal memory, the SD card, or both. You can select files placed in different folders on the SD card if you like that option.For the techies out there: Eek! I'm using this with Windows 2000 Pro, even though the documentation seems to want to say this should not work. W2k finds the Clip+ right away as a USB mass storage device and all you need to do is copy files into the appropriate folder on the Clip+. The "extra goodies" software may not work, but the player itself is nicely compatible. I even tried it on my sister's Win98SE machine and Win98SE found the Clip+ as a USB storage device.Anyway, about the player. Smaller and smaller isn't always such a great idea and this player is tiny. I'm a guy with average size hands and it takes some getting used to handling the Clip+ and dealing with the tiny controls. (Check the product info for the dimensions. It's really small.) I feel like the player wants to fumble out of my hand when I press a control button. I'll accept it, but I would have preferred something a more reasonable size, like an iPod, just for the sake of it being easier to hold onto and use.The player is packed with features: multiple equalizer presets, sleep timer function, FM radio (switchable to mono in poor reception scenarios), voice recorder, FM radio recording, timeout settings for the display and standby modes... But the navigation isn't all that intuitive. It took me several minutes just to locate the FM radio function. It's not the worst interface either. But expect to find yourself pushing random buttons and wandering around the menus until you figure out the interface.Battery life seems to be on the short side of the rated 6-7 hours, at least with mine. I seem to be getting more like 4-5 hours run time between charges. The good news is the player seems to be pretty flexible about chargers that will work with it, but be careful: the microUSB port on mine is a very tight fit with any cable I've tried besides the one provided with it. It *should* be a standard size. This one seems to be a tiny bit smaller than standard. I'm not thrilled about the fact that the battery is not replaceable.Nice bright 2 color diplay. The sound quality is very good but it doesn't seem to be very loud compared to other players I've used. I'm not suggesting anyone should be blasting their hearing into oblivion. But if you use high end headphones this player might not have enough output for you.Overall, in this price range, you get a lot of features and great sound, but in a package that's almost too small.

I decided to buy this mp3 player mainly because of the expandable memory and the price, and because of the good reviews it got on this site. I'll say now that I couldn't be happier. This is everything I was looking for and then some. Upon another reviewer's recommendation, I got a better set of headphones, and the audio quality is astounding. The equalizer in the firmware packs every punch and delivers every subtlety.Other impressive features:Works with Linux! I can mount this as a scsi device and access it directly just copying my music to the music directory. Pain-free! (Hard to find when you're dealing with a market geared toward compatibility with commercial OS's while trying to hide the filesystem from the end user.)The display has a very intuitive structure, and the refresh rate plays tricks on the eye. Very vibrant and colorful.

Everything about it works great but I only get about 7 or 8 hours of battery life. That's usually enough since you can use a USB charger (catalog # 273-317 ) along with the included USB cable to power the Clip while you listen to it. Shorter than expected battery life is the main reason I didn't give it five stars. I've had a minor problem with voice recording playback but I was still able to get them to play. I was not able to play some FLAC files that I had but I don't intend to use the Clip for that, so no big deal.I would also recommend picking up a better pair of headphones to go along with it.Other cool features:-FM radio works great and you can record live radio.-Compatible with all of the SlotRadio accessories including the pre-loaded music cards.-Can be used a USB storage device.-Has adjustable equalizer.-During playback it seamlessly integrates the music you store on the Clip with the music from your MicroSD memory card. You can also play them separately if you want.-

The Sansa clip is awesome! I use mine for running but because it is so small and easy to take anywhere I have also found myself using it while doing outside chores, traveling, you name it and it's going to be convenient to be with you. Very easy to download songs and very easy to use. Also easy to delete any songs you are tired of hearing by just using a drop down menu on the screen. I haven't tried the newest enhancements made to it, specifically the increased storage capacity with the memory card and the radio tunes chip. I'm quite happy with the basics so don't know if I will ever venture beyond that but it's nice to know they are there if I want them. The clip also has great sound, though I use my own headphones as I hate the ones that come with just about any MP3 or Ipod. This is actually my second Sansa clip as my old faithful died when I was running in a complete downpour. It lasted quite a while despite the rain but I don't think much of anything could withstand the soaking it got.

I listen to a lot of radio on commuter rail. This was much easier than the Samsung YP-U3 I had. Based on all these "problem" reviews, I bought replacement insurance which I never do. Sure enough, after 7 months the volume control failed. Got my $$ back in 10 days and I'll buy it and the replacement plan again.Since I got it on sale, the replacement plan only covers 90%. Still is was a good idea to purchase. Seems like alot of these devices fail.

I really liked it at first,i had it for almost a year but out of no where it stopped working.I returned it at the store for a new one then after a few months go by i was listing to it and it just stopped working again so i would say over all at first its great but at anytime it might just stop working on you its not that reliable.So i would just go with something else

I chose the Clip+ because I wanted a small, simple player for working out and listening while at work. I'm really happy with it - the Clip+ meets my needs for a great price. My only complaint is the short battery life.The Clip+ feels sturdy in your hand without being heavy, and the clip is strong and sturdy, too. The buttons are easy to find and press without looking at it (while exercising), and the screen is very clear. I've been tossing it into my purse for a few weeks without a case, and it doesn't have any visible scratches.The battery life is fairly short. If I have it fully charged in the morning, it barely lasts through an 9-hour work day. I try to make a habit of charging it whenever I'm in a meeting or out to lunch.If I had it to do over again, I would probably get the 8 GB. For me, the 4 GB holds about 730 songs and 20 podcasts, which means I'll go through the entire collection in a work week.

I bought this mp3 player to replace the second one I lost in as many months. The third time's the charm: the sound in this player is much better and it was about half the price of the other two. It's tiny and ideal for the gym (or anywhere else). It works perfectly with my Linux desktop. (Linux users may have to set the USB mode MSC.) Lastly, the menus are intuitive and easy to use.I am very happy with this player.

I use this every day about 7 hrs at work.the radio I need to charge daily music down loads about 3 days be fore I need to fully recharge. The best thing I left in my shirt pocket and it got sent threw the washer.I let it air dry over night and it still works great.the only thing I did was replace the head set the ones that comes with this product where uncomfertable to me.
