This little unit does everything I need and more. I use it in my home studio to upload stereo tracks to my multi track recorder, so that I can play along on different instruments and capture the performances. Once that is done, I upload from the player to my PC and mix things down, and then I put the finished tracks back on the MP3 player so I can listen to them over headphones or external speakers. It is easy to charge, easy to load songs into and off of, and easy to play back, rewind, fast forward, etc. Well worth the money.
2018 and STILL only 2000 songs?? Bad Plug Location
Battery, Clip, Ease of use
I have been a Sandisk fan for about as long as they have been making portable media. I trust their memory cards with all my photography. And I have had several of these little MP3 players over the years. My old Sansa Fuze ran forever until the battery finally bloated the whole thing apart after 10 years! But enough nostalgia...
This little Sandisk Clip Jam is good and bad... The bad being really more annoyances than anything, but enough for me to deduct stars.
Bad 1 - 2000 song limit? Seriously?? I have a 16gb Micro-SD card installed, which it has no problems reading. BUT... Why oh WHY in the year of 2018 is there STILL a limitation of how many songs it can randomize? I have over 3000 songs on the card. It peaks out at 2000. Not really sure WHICH 2000 it is randomizing amongst... the first 2000? A different selection of 2000 each time it is started? I dunno... but seriously.... Time for Sandisk to grow up and eliminate this ridiculous song limitation.
Bad 2 - The port locations. USB out one side and AUX out the other? Say what?? Obviously, the Sandisk designers never actually USED this thing or they would have immediately moved the plugs... BOTH ports should be coming out the bottom, or at least the top, so you can easily and conveniently have your cords going the same direction out of this player. But nope. They go out opposite sides effectively making it the size of your hand by the time the cords get redirected to wherever they are going. I spent some extra money and bought 90-degree adapters for both USB and AUX so the cords can exit the player going the same direction.
Other than that, it's good. Screen display is basic, but scrolls titles. It is easy to select random/shuffle play, despite the 2000 song limitation. Battery life seems to be good. Menus are intuitive and simple. Size is just right. It's lightweight. Clip is sturdy enough.
Overall, I like the unit. It plays music as it should. I just wish the backing code was updated from its 10 year old brethren and that song limitation done away with...
I bought this MP3 player to kill time on the road to a place that was 48 hours away. It lasted about 9 or so hours without charging in between. I've also been able to charge it on my desktop, laptop, portable charger, and wall outlet. It's held 500+ of my songs and I've taken up ~5.6 GB of the 8 GB. It's great! It's very small so it takes up no room.
It works really well and it hold lots of songs. I also like the clip and the ability to use memory card. Unfortunately, it was a lot smaller than expected. From the pictures on this site, I assumed it would be bigger than a AA battery at least. It was a gift, but the person didn’t like it because it was way too small.
I was looking mostly for a FM player and found this compact MP3 player with FM! It is very small and lightweight. Surprisingly good sound! Headphones, comes in packages, not a good ones so you better use something good. I use this player with Sennheiser CX 300II. Sounds even better!
This is so incredibly easy to use! I ended up moving my music from my iPod (Google for instructions), and now I add downloaded podcasts to listen to on walks - just download to computer, then drag and drop!
It's so easy to create Go Lists and to delete songs I'm not crazy about and podcasts after I listen, while on the go. SO EASY! But not so easy that you are likely to make mistakes.
It seems to have more than enough memory for my use.
I struggled so much using an iPod (it deleted my Go Lists and songs it didn't recognize!) I am actually grateful that the battery in my ipod died! :) I love this! It's cute, too!
I’ll admit it; I’m a old guy. My work outs were suffering from radio commercials slowing my pace. So I finally got an MP3 player. I downloaded about a thousand songs on it and instead of shuffle, set it to play in alphabetical order. Just got to the M’s. Don’t know why I didn’t get one years ago. 8 Gb is enough storage. It’s so small I don’t even feel it. The earbuds that come with it are pretty tinny, but for the price at least it had a set. It works great with another set I already own.
Overall I really enjoy this thing!
