How much music files are there on your 128 GB card? I think there's a file-number limit, maybe somewhere around 8000 IIRC. Probably just a limitation in view of the database, not accessability. I haven't reached that high a file number, though, and just use a 64 GB card.
I agree with the above poster. I never really liked portable setups until I purchased the Clip+ (cost a little less than 40 euro on eBay UK). It fits perfectly in my HiFiMAN RE400 carrying case so my setup is always with me. Running Rockbox of course.
Probably, but not by much. Your phone's battery will thank you though & it's much easier to carry a Clip+ than a phone for the times when you might not need a phone. That was my rationale anyway. My Samsung Note 3 sounds noticeably worse than the Clip+ but some phones are better, it depends.
Perhaps not so much anymore, as the 4GB Clip Zip is now $75 on Amazon,and the 8GB one is $100. On Ebay refurb 4GB ones are only $30 though. Normally I don't like buying refurbs, however at less than half the price of a new one, it is worth the risk to buy a refurb(or two of them in case one doesn't last long.
I bought a sansa clip used for only 17 dollars, been using it for almost a year. My first sansa clip lasted about 2 years. Built quality is crap, but they're cheap.
Thanks for the reply, figured that was the case. Kicking myself over not getting another one when they were available :(
Build quality of the Clip+ is actually quite good, except for the clip. My Clip+ that is over 6 years years old still works fine, except that the clip broke off around two years ago. Due to its light weight and low density, the Clip+ does have a cheap feel to it though. I liked how the Fuze felt. It had much greater density than the Clip+. The problem with the Fuze though was that the wheel would occasionally stick. If they would have made the Fuze with buttons like on the Clip+ instead of the scroll wheel, and with a standard mini usb connector, it would have been great.
We've had two Clips+ with broken earphone jacks. One died but back to life a couple of times before dying permanently. Currently have one Clip+ with one earphone working and on zip.
Our Sony players have lasted much longer. One had the battery changed. That said they had an easier life.
