    Good solid MP3 Player

    This is my 3rd Sansa. I buy them because the value compared to the high- priced I-pods makes it irresistible. My first 2 were Views. Lost 1 & dropped the other in the toilet. It actually worked when I fished it out except no audio output. I bought the clip because I don't need the big screen & it has a convenient clip(be gentle with the clip-it can break) . I've found a few tricks with these things. When it freezes up turn it off. Hold down the start button for 20-30 seconds. Wait a few seconds & turn it on again-it should work now. Also do not fill up the memory more than 80-90%. This is when it starts having problems. Buy a bigger micro SD card. This is what their customer service told me & my own experiences verified. It also has a problem charging. When it is off & charging it will not charge all the way. It will even discharge when past 90%. Turn it on & put it on hold & charge it this way. Will charge up fully & faster. Makes no sense but this is what my Clip does.

    Solid Performance and a Great Value

    If you are looking for a compact MP3 player, look no further. I researched every MP3 player under $50, and none will come close to the performance and quality in this SanDisk unit. I acquired mine on sale at Best Buy for $40, and you can easily find this on the net for that price (or less). I have not yet added a MicroSD card to mine, but with the 4 gig built in, I have over 400 songs at full quality stored on mine. Reduce the audio quality of your files, and you could probably double that number. Obviously this unit does not play video, which I did not need or want. If you want video, you will need to step up to the SanDisk Fuze, for about $30 or $40 more. If I could add one feature, it would be the ability to have more than one playlist. This unit only has a favorites option, which is basic at best. Otherwise, I am very happy with the quality, function and battery life. I have managed roughly 15 hours of use on 1 full charge. Lastly, adding music is very easy - you can do it with Windows Media Player drag and drop if you wish.

    Love the clip +'s!

    I love the Sansa Clips. I have 2 Clip +8's, and now this Clip +4 has been added to my collection. The sound is great (although I do us ether Bose or Klipsche headphones with my Mp3 players) and it does exactly what I'm looking for in a player - PLAYS MUSIC! That's all I want. I'm not interested in watching videos, hopping on line, or playing around with a bunch of aps. I just want my tunes. I love that is is one of the few players out there that still operates by button rather than touch screen. I like being able to adjust settings and search music by touch - without having to stop and look at anything. The clip is handy - I tend to attach it to my shirt and go about my business. Nothing to hold, no pockets or bands necessary. If I had one Clip+ wish - it would be that they start making them in 16+ and 32+ gigs. (okay, technically, that may be two wishes). Other than that, I really hope they don't change a thing!

    BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!

    I THOUGHT THIS PRODUCT WOULD BE GREAT. BECAUSE OF IT'S SIZE AND IT'S EASY CLIP ON, IT WAS PERFECT FOR MY WORKOUTS, BUT THE CLIP IS SO FRAGILE IT BROKE OFF, BUT BECAUSE OF IT'S SIZE, I COULD STICK IT IN MY POCKET. THEN AFTER A FEW WEEKS, IT JUST DIED ON ME! I FIRST THOUGHT WELL MAYBE IT NEEDS TO BE RECHARGED, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS FULLY CHARGED BEFORE I TURNED IT ON, BUT EVEN WHILE IT WAS PLUGGED IN, IT STILL WOULD NOT POWER ON...SO FRUSTRATED I THREW IT AWAY ONLY TO LATER THINK WHY GIVE UP ON THIS PRODUCT, MAYBE I JUST GOT A BAD DEVICE, I MEAN THERES ALWAY ONE, SO I BOUGHT ANOTHER,THE CLIP BROKE AFTER 2ND USE, AND EVEN WHILE THIS ONE LASTED JUST A LITTLE LONGER....5 WEEKS LATER ...SAME THING HAPPENS, IT JUST DIES ON ME, I TRIED EVERYTHING, IT JUST WOULD NOT POWER ON! LATER I READ SOME REVIEWS AND FOUND OTHER CUSTOMERS HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEMS...WISH I READ THE REVIEWS FIRST...DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! -(ALSO IT DID NOT WORK WITH MY MAC LAPTOP EVEN THOUGH IT SAYS IT'S COMPATIBLE, MY MAC DID NOT EVEN RECOGNIZE THE PRODUCT SO I HAD TO USE MY DESKTOP)

    MP3 Player - most features for best value

    The Sansa Clip+ is a full-featured MP3 player that is the best value in it's class. My purchase decision was based on: 1) memory card slot for expandable storage, 2) built-in FM tuner, 3) very small size, 4) bright, easy to read display. 5) Rhapsody - compatability, 6) reputable SanDisk brand name. I bought one for my wife and enjoyed "borrowing" it so much I got one for myself. We've been using them for over 2 months; all day, every day and love them dearly. The built-in battery lasts all day and fully recharges in only 2 hours. The Sansa Clip+ is very easy to use, with simple controls and intuitive menu screens. They're pretty rugged, too; still working after being dropped on the floor a few times (oops!). You won't regret getting a Sansa Clip+ MP3 player for yourself or giving one as a gift.

    Great little MP3 Player, but dies frequently

    I ordered my first Sansa clip through woot, and was quite pleased with the features and ease of use. However, shortly before a cross-country trip I managed to kill it. After doing some research I found that freezes and crashes are fairly common with this product. I didn't have much time before my trip and HAD to have an MP3 player, so I got another Sansa clip from my local Best Buy. When making the purchase I was offered a 2-year warranty for $9.99 and decided that was absolutely worth it. Let me tell you, I've gotten my money's worth. Two years later I am now on my FIFTH Sansa clip. Reliable this product is not. I wouldn't suggest you get one unless you are really, really in love with the design and are going to purchase the extended warranty (which is now only one year for $9.99.)

    I've had this player for about 3.5 years. The battery life is great. I received it as a gift. It's my second SanDisk mp3 but my first of this model. The first one lasted for quite awhile and then the battery life got very short; but I still use that one also. I listen to audio books on this one every night which I download from my library - cannot sleep without it! I use mini-speakers, or if traveling use ear-buds. Last night it just went totally dormant. I followed another user's suggestion and held down the power button for 30 seconds, then powered it up again and voila - it lives!

    Great MP3 Player For Anyone

    This is the best MP3 player I have purchased. I think it's easy to use, very convenient and has a couple of features that other MP3 players do not have. I listen to my MP3 player for at least 4 hours a day, mostly listening to podcasts. I like the clip and liked that I didn't have to buy any additional accessories to attach it to my clothing. Additionally, many MP3 players do not resume to where you last stopped if you switch to another podcast/song. Lastly, you can delete directly from the device which is another feature that other MP3's often don't have. Also, it retains it's charge very well. My husband loved mine so much, he stole it. That's why I had to purchase this one!

    The mp3's primary function for me was to use it while I jog and I really like it! I was able to use itunes and just easily drag and drop into the mp3! In other words, very easy to download. After I played around with it for a while (about 5 mins) i already understood it's functions and stuff. It also has a shuffle button, which I really love! Rhapsody turns out to be useless because I'm using the mp3 without even opening the case of the CD. It is also VERY small! I think it's just adorable! and the clip-on is very sturdy, though it seems kind of flimsy, but it really holds out. The price could have been a bit lower, but it's worth it. I highly recommend it to everyone that is interested in buying it.

    Great MP3 Player for my daughter

    I decided to buy my 8yr old her 1st MP3 player for Christmas. She was excited from day 1. After opening I charged it and easily uploaded music for her. I did not need to use the disk that came with it since my computer searched for the driver. Once music was on it she was off. Without reading the book or really looking at the package she knew how to find music, change songs, volume, use FM Tuner, etc. It seems to hold a charge very well. The charger cable could be longer but that is so minor of a detail. I am SO glad I got this for her and the price was great. I would recommend this to anyone who is buying a new MP3 player for themselves or their children.

    great 1st official mp3 player

    rkpack

    The only other one I had was on my phone, so this was a great starter one. I love how I can pack tons of music, get radio, and even record on this little thing. I love how I can use while I workout and run around with it getting in the way. The playback is great too on the songs. I play a decent amount of training material so I do like a equalizer for speech, and I wish there was some way I could edit the information of my mp3s, create folders, moving my music from one place to another from the player itself, which I don't know if that's possible on other players. I also wish for bluetooth (that that probably would mean more money). However, I definitely love it. I use it as often as I can,

    I bought this last Easter for my daughter. A year later it is still going strong and she still loves it! The storage space on this small (size not storage) MP3 player is amazing! My daughter has loaded so many of her cds to it and there is still extra room. Adding and removing songs is really easy to do. The battery is awesome! I have only had to charge this for her a couple times in the past year. The best part is it charges while you have it hooked up to a computer to load songs.

    It's a great mp3 player for the price. I needed an mp3 player to hook up to my car stereo but I couldn't afford anything expensive. Plus I needed an mp3 player with tons of space. I just popped in my 16 GB micro SDHC card and instantly I had 20 GB of space. I love that it has a voice recorder and FM radio. And dare I say it, it makes proper use of my Skullcandy headphones, much better than an expensive Ipod. The sound is phenomenal. Much better than I expected an mp3 player for this price to be. A great buy.

    Really good MP3

    zudgolf

    I've been through 3 of these MP3's, the first because it went in the pool (oops), the 2nd one, the volume button on the side stuck and it wouldn't turn the volume up any (down works, but the up didn't), and I'm on my third right now. I use this a lot for golf practice and working out, it sometimes freezes up, but I just turn it off and back on again and I'm back in action. I always drop it and its only once broken (the 2nd one). i love this MP3!!! :D

    Great! - FM radio is weak

    Posted
    AlaskaAK

    I have never owned a MP3 player before and was up and listening to music in no time, no manual needed. This is a durable unit, it can withstand animals, children, and being set on. The only bad part to this is that the FM built in radio is weak, only about 4 station settings come in understandably, I get almost all the stations when I am in town. Hopefuly they can come out with a radio signal booster for this. Overall great product, easy to use.

    If your looking for something that easy to use and would like to see the screen this is a great option if your in the market for a iPod Nano. I have that two but for the money you get expandable memory and radio which this has replaced the Nano for my workout MP3 player

    It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of many MP3 players on the market. But -- if you're just looking for something that holds ALOT of music, is small/compact, and is good quality -- you CANNOT go wrong with this player. PLUS, it has the added feature of being able to play SanDisk's slotRadio cards (pre-loaded memory cards with 1,000 songs on them - usually sell for around $39.95 each). Try to catch this MP3 player when it's on sale. It's often sold for around $39.95 to $49.95.

    Loved it, while it worked. 2 months after purchase it's dead and could not be revived. SanDisk customer service agrees it's dead and provided the means to replace it. First I have to mail it back to them (postage paid by SanDisk). Then when they receive it they will send a replacement. They received the broken one 3 weeks ago and I still don't have a replacement. Like I'll trust it to work for more than a couple months. Save yourself the headache and just by an iPod nano like I had to do to have my music. LOVE MY NANO!!!!!!

    This is probably the 4th or 5th one I've bought and they all end up breaking and I am very careful with my things -- I've never broken a cell phone, a camera, a stereo component -- I don't break things. But the clip on the back always cracks or breaks off and it drops songs off the playlists (that may be a Rhapsody issue though). And eventually it quits uploading and syncing to Rhapsody. I keep buying them because they are so cheap and if you buy the insurance and return it its fine so don't lose the receipt.

    I bought two of these players for Christmas presents. I gave my boyfriend one and I kept one. He is an avid music fan and absolutely loves this new player. I installed the trial version of Rhapsody on my computer and every day I am downloading music to both players. This is the easiest app I have ever used to get music. We love the compact size and the navigation of the functions is so easy my 6 year old grandson could walk his way through setting this up. Great little product for such a modest price!
