      I love it! I'm a Clip Jam fan for sure

      I did a lot of research prior to me buying the Clip Jam and there is really nothing on the market that met my requirements of lightweight, small, that I could transfer my iTunes music to and had an FM Radio, except the Clip Jam. I was concerned about how hard it could be to transfer my iTunes music over to the Sandisk Clip Jam, but it was extremely EASY to do. And from a quality of sound, I find no difference in quality from the Apple Shuffle to the Clip Jam. And my main goal of having something with an FM Radio was achieved. The Clip Jam did great getting all my favorite local stations. The plus is that you can set stations for easy changing while on your Run. It is true the Clip Jam does not have the metal casing as the Apple Shuffle has. It's made out of a plastic type material,.. but it doesn't feel cheap or that it would break easily,.. it just feels light, which is what I wanted for my Runs. It also has the ability to use a microSDHC card to expand the 8GB it already has. Which will make it easy to download a lot of music for longer Runs where you may want more diversity. It also has a screen to search and put your music into folders which makes it easy to organize on the go,.. and to top it off it not expensive. Comparing it to the Shuffle, I was able to get the Clip Jam for $5 cheaper. A very small price to pay to keep one focused on Running to Music which is a life saver. I love it! I'm a Clip Jam fan for sure... it will now be my new go-to music product for Running.

      An excellent, compact MP3 player.

      I must say, I love this MP3 player! It is a huge upgrade over another I had, which had a much smaller data capacity, and no access to the radio as this one has, and definitely a shorter battery life. It also stays clipped on nice and tight! I always use this at work, and it lasts throughout my 8+ hour shifts, and I've never had any problems with it (until recently, more on that later). The previous one I had wouldn't even last the whole shift, so I had to be careful when I used it, and it seemed to use up battery power when skipping songs! The Clip Jam here sure doesn't do that though, so that's a plus! This has an auto power down mode if you have your music paused for too long, which is also nice, as it saves battery power. Not that I was ever close to reaching the 18 hour limit. You can turn off this feature in the settings if it is not to your liking. I DID have one problem with the player recently. One day when going out, I kept the MP3 player in my jean pocket. I didn't use it that day, but when I got home, I saw the screen was frozen on the "Music" icon. I could power the player down, but it wouldn't fix the problem. The only thing I could seem to do was listen to the radio, which was still good! After looking up some information online, I found a link in the player's manual that sends you to a page where you can download a firmware update for the player. This fixed my problem, and it was a simple drag and drop installation and disconnecting the player afterwards to allow it to update. I definitely recommend this and the price is great to boot!

      Not so easy to operate

      I bought this product to listen to my audio books. I wanted a different one than the one I use for my music. I read the reviews before I bought it, and one review said that a man bought this for his 7 year old grandson, who had no problem figuring out how to use it. Well, I guess thats the difference between a 7 year old and a 65 year old, because I was baffled. THe "instructions" that it came with were basically useless for specific things. For example, if im listening to the device and i missed something and wanted to just go back for 30 second, I cant figure out how to do that. Also, one of the big problems I had is that there is a delay, once you push the button to do something. For example, If i put it on pause, and then press the button to unpause it. it takes a full 15 seconds to start to replay. That caused me grief because I thought i was pressing the wrong button. Also when you first turn it on, it takes about 30 seconds to start playing. I bought Sandisk, because it and RCA were recommended for being compatiblel for downloading audio books. Im thinking about returning it, but I am very reluctant to get another Sandisk for fear of running into the same problems. Maybe I should do a little more research and not buy the cheapest model next time.l

      Great - simple and portable

      Was looking for a replacement for my SanDisk clip that I purchased probably about 10+ yrs ago (still works fine, just doesn't have the capacity I want anymore - only 1GB, and the clip is broken). I briefly considered an iPod but I decided to get this SanDisk clip jam instead because it is very simple to use and extremely light and portable. I use it when I run or walk and it works perfect for what I want - no fuss with setup, just transfer the songs on and you're ready to go. I can do a little more on this player than I could on my old one which is nice - just haven't gotten to check out everything yet since I've only had it a few days. Still has the FM radio, can create playlists, and it's pretty easy to transfer songs from my macbook. Now I know from experience from my other SanDisk clip that the clip breaks fairly easily so I'll have to be careful this time! I expect the longevity will be similar to that of my old SanDisk clip (still has good battery life after 10yrs!). So if you are anti-SMART anything... which I am... and still want to listen to your tunes on something portable (besides a walkman, haha), this is definitely a nice little device and I would recommend it.

      Nice little mp3 player

      I bought this for audiobooks. I didn't want to shell out a bunch of money to get an iPod touch just for audiobooks and my phone doesn't have a lot of space on my phone for all the audiobooks I have. So I wanted something that I could carry around with me that wasn't to big so I could listen to my audiobooks. I saw this on the best buy website and did some searching to see if audiobooks would work on it because I didn't want to buy it find out audiobooks didn't work on it and have to return it and find something else. Well I found out that audiobooks work fine on it. I was debating between this and the Bluetooth version. I went with this one because it was able to expandable storage whereas the Bluetooth version didn't have that capability. I would've liked to be able to use Bluetooth headphones but I prefer having the ability to swap out sd cards with multiple books so that I don't use up the entire amount of storage on the device. I don't know how it works with music or radio since I haven't used it for that purpose but definitely recommend for audiobooks.

      Average mp3 player

      I bought this sandisk clip jam to replace a sandisk sansa player. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the price had not increased. However, they are several inconvenient features on this replacement. The screen is much smaller on the clip jam. I have several cds that have a similar . With the sansa I could easily distinguish between them. With the clip jam the screen is so small as to make the distinction between similar cds impossible. The on/off button the sans was conveniently located on the top of the player. On the clip jam the off/on button is inconveniently located in the center of the player. I have to fumble around to find it when riding my bike and listening to the mp3 player. Initially I used the ear buds from my sansa player which were working well . They worked intermittently with the clip jam. This problem went away when I switched to the ear buds that came with the clip jam. I don't know if this problem will return if I ever have to replace the ear buds. Lastly, the clipjam doesn't seem to have as much volume as the sansa. I don't have any experience with other mp3 players so I don't know if there is a competitive model which I might recommend.

      Pretty Unsatisfactory

      Will return it tomorrow, had it for one day, but this is my third Sandisk mp3 player, and I am not at all happy with it. The architecture is poor; the sd microdisk is not incorporated in the root directory. To access it, I have to find the "folder" list, tell it I want the external drive, then flip through the directories in there to the one I want, navigate down to the listing I am interested in and, finally, play it. Major PITA (pain in the ...). Sound quality is not as good as earlier models. I used these mainly for listening to books from Overdrive, but this one has trouble identifying and loading these books into the root directory and making them uniquely identifiable and readable. I have not tried music playlists yet (I usually use my phone for those), but i have my doubts about those too. Overall, not a happy camper here.

      solid player, great value

      I bought this to bring music on my walks and hikes, replacing an ipod nano that died. this has some advantages and some complicating factors. 1) battery life - very good. more than you'll ever need for a run or day-long hike. 2) menus are reasonably intuitive to use. a little bit of trial and error, then it's easy. 3) extremely lightweight, and the clip is convenient. 4) the screen is small but usable 5) it looks and feels cheap, all plastic 6) expandable memory is great - I plugged in a 32gb microsd card. 7) the device treats a microsd card as a separate hard drive, so you have to specifically choose music on the external drive to listen to it - an inelegant and wonky solution. 8) moving music over is easy, doing a couple of playlists was easy. haven't tried to figure out the 'go list' playlists. 9) for a player with 40gb of storage and no bloated operating system, the player plus microSD cost about fifty bucks - exceptional value.

      SanDisk Clip Jam review
      MP3 players have slowly been replaced by smartphones, but if you find yourself in the rare situation of needing one, luckily for you their near-extinct status means lower prices. The simple SanDisk Clip Jam is compellingly cheap enough to justifyFull Review
