Tiny size. big convenience.

Pros: Cheap, small, portable, will last a long time.

Cons: doesn't sound any better than my phone or an iPod.

My reviews are usually long winded and detailed, but in this review im keeping things short as this is not a high-end product by any means. I have had the Sansa Clip since June of last year, and it has served me well ever since. It is uber-convenient and portable. This thing is small, and i mean really small. I take it with me basically everywhere. It has survived through a lot of sweat and water in the gym or when working out, i also dropped it a couple of times. This little thing has been through a lot of abuse and it can take it. Usually with my cheap, budget-oriented gear, my use is rough and i don't think the Clip has a problem with that.  Build Quality:Almost...

Sound quality in a small package

Posted

Pros: Small, great sound quality, expandable storage, rockbox compatible, durable

Cons: Menu button lost its responsiveness but only after years of usage

This little player can take a beating. I am not careful with this device and I've dropped it many times on all types of surfaces and it keeps going. I have had my player for nearly 3 years now and the menu button now requires a harder press to respond. Headphone jack will be looser with wear and tear, it should be fine if you do not change headphones much or if you don't tug on the headphone cable to pull the clip zip out of your pocket.   This player has a OLED screen, which is immediately apparent when using it at night as black does not emit light.   Sansa clips have measured well historically in the past and this is no different. It has an output impedance of less than 2...

Great player, but be careful with the headphone jack

Posted

Pros: Size, sound, price, not an ipod

Cons: Headphone jack

I love my little clip.  It is so small it fits anywhere (It fits perfectly in the free space of the case of with whatever cans I am bringing with me that day), my only complaint is the headphone jack and some QC issues.  My first one the jack lost a channel in less than a month, luckily it was under best-buy's warranty, and I was able to get it replaced at the store, unfortunatly the second one did not have a working SD card slot, so back to the store where I returned it for #3.  I now keep the little source cable with the right angle connector running to my amp on it all the time do minimize use and stress on the jack, and no problems yet.  While I admit alot of the...

Clip Zip is worth your money

Posted

Pros: Small, cheap, compact, what isn't to like

Cons: Battery life, screen size & res

Best player you could probably buy under $200. Sell your ipod, and buy one of these. Native .flac support and expandable memory. Threw a 32gb micro sd card in straight when I got it, copied some music onto it. Loved the experience.   At $50, what more can you expect. Construction feels pretty solid, especially for plastic. The screen is small, and it's resolution is only 96x96, but for $50, it's ok. I would've much preferred the yellow and blue screen from the clip+ as it seems a bit more fitting. I just don't feel the colour screen belongs on the Zip.    Battery life seems on the low size. Sandisk claims 15hours of battery life, I feels as if it were 10. Clip is...
