    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

    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.

    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.

    Almost 5 Stars but...

    SanDisk seems to have taken 3 steps backward with this model. The best MP3 player ever was the Clip+, which I had for 7 years; however, since this is the closet one I have been able to find I figured I'd give it a try. The display is adequate in doors but just terrible outside on a sunny day. 8gb of memory holds plenty of songs, podcasts audio books. I also loaded up a 32gb micro SD card with tons of music. One thing I noticed is 2000 songs is the max the system will recognize in the Music folder - I put 3000 but only 2000 are identified when playing by artist in shuffle mode. The reason for 4 Stars is because you CANNOT just hit Shuffle and play every song from both the internal and external storage. They are separate and you need to pick from which you want to play. I bought the Blue model and am using the silicone skin from my Clip+ as the cover even though the buttons are not quite in the same place. It works for my purpose. Overall, I am happy with the purchase and just hope it lasts as long as the previous MP3 from SanDisk.

    So I was in the market for a new MP3 player and didn't feel the need to spend $300 on an iPod. All I want to do is listen to music and didn't need all the extra bells and whistles. I was using my phone for a while but it has limited space and no way micro SD slot. I did some research and thought about getting the more expensive SanDisk MP3 player, the one with Bluetooth, but that one only held a max of 16GB w/no micro SD slot. This one hold 8GB out of the box and has a micro SD slot. It also has a built in FM tuner so I can listen to the radio if I want. The battery life on the device is phenomenal, 18 hours on a single charge makes sure that long days at work are filled with plenty of tunes. The only down side to the device is that it feel like it could break easily if you bumped into something or sat on it. But with its clip-on design and small footprint you can place it anywhere you like to ensure that you keep it safe.

    I bought the Clip Jam to use in the car I drive for work. I deliver auto parts on a part time basis. The company put new cars in service a few months ago and, at first, I was able to listen to SiriusXM. But, after the trial period expired, I was stuck with commercial radio. The Clip Jam enables me to listen to my choice of music without all the commercials and DJ chatter. So far, I loaded about 10 CDs on the Clip Jam and have only used a small part of the storage capacity. The only problem is that I have to turn the Clip Jam volume all the way up and turn up volume on the car radio to get a good overall volume level. I did find that, if I set the Clip Jam equalizer to the Pop setting, the volume is boosted. Overall, it does a good job and I am enjoying listening to my own music.
