The FM tuner has an available 40 station-presets and the memory card slot balloons the amount of content you can store on the Clip+. No matter what your mood or musical preference, the Clip+ is equipped with the tools to keep you listening for hours without hearing the same thing twice. Just pop on your jam, use the integrated clip to free your hands, and go.

    Small MP3 Player Produces Big Sound!

    I purchased the Sansa Clip to replace a SanDisk (Sansa) Fuze which I had destroyed when I stepped on it with a pair of work boots! I choose to go with the smaller "Clip" for just that, its size. I didn't watch videos on my dearly departed "Fuze" so I didn't need the larger viewing screen. I use this device primarily in the evening while falling asleep. I also use the Sansa Clip during my children's outdoor athletic competitions (I find that the music keeps me calm while on the sideline).

    There are many features of the Sansa Clip which I believe make this a great product. First has to be the sound reproduction from such a small device. I use the "Custom" 5-channell equalizer to adjust the sound to my preference. The "Clip" also has preset equalizer selections such as Rock, Pop, Jazz, Classical, etc. I have paired my Sansa Clip with a high-end in-the-ear (placed into the ear canal) set of noise isolating ear buds. I have also used this MP3 player with the standard over-the-ear noise cancelling earphones. Both provide exceptional sound reproduction at any listening volume. I have noticed the best bass reproduction with the in-the-ear ear buds. Both ear phones produce nice mid and high tones. I have not used the ear bud set that came with the Sansa Clip.

    Perhaps one of the nicest and easiest characteristics that make this an item worth owning is the simplicity of adding songs – "drag and drop", done! Although the device supports several music platforms, if you encounter an incompatible platform, the device will ask if you want to convert in order to listen to the song! The internal 4GB memory is modest, but I insert a 2GB micro SD into the memory slot and I now have a 6 GB player for a very low cost! The belt clip has been quite handy and the variable sleep timer is wonderful. The Sansa Clip has many other features such as built in microphone for voice recording, playlist settings and other advanced tools, but I choose not to use those options at this time.

    I am hard pressed to find anything that I would consider not-so-great about the Sansa Clip. People may find the compact size difficult to manipulate. Searching for songs by artist, title or genre can be done, but not as efficiently as some other products on the market. These features were not important to me, so I opted with the Sansa Clip.

    Loved everything ... but the sound. Bought this to replace my old Creative Zen. Sansa clip's size, controls, ease of downloading and especially price were perfect. However, to my ears the Sansa clip's audio performance seemed muted and flat compared to the Zen - even after customizing the Sansa's EQ to the same settings as the Zen. The "solid sound quality" mentioned in Sansa clip reviews now appears to mean "really not that great."

          I guess they haven't made the slot radio cards for a couple of years , although its still previews on the menu. Not happy it took 2 weeks for the shipper to find my house. great music value.

            I use my Sansa to listen to lectures during workouts, so I really appreciate the clip: I just attach it to my tee shirt collar, and it stays put during the whole time. Battery life is very good. For listening to lectures, I also appreciate the fact that, if I turn it off in the middle, it will, when I resume the next day, back up a bit (I think about 30 secs).

                I wanted a no-frills audio player, and this fit the bill. The display is small but provides enough info to navigate. I especially like being able to choose music by folders, as that is the way I organize. Battery provides good playing time between charges. Audio quality is decent. SD Micro card slot is handy, although compatibility may be an issue; a class 6 Transcend 4 GB card didn't play cleanly, but a class 2 no-name 2 GB card worked flawlessly (maybe SanDisk cards would be the safest choice).

It is even much better than the newer version player which I also have. Small, compact, easy to wear!! I have recommended this player to other people which love it. And, I will continue to recommend it to others.

                        I've been using this player for the last 3 years. I walk with it everyday. Excellent sound, size and functionality. Easy to upgrade to 36GB via micro SD card. It gives you the option to create play lists or use forlders, which you can choose for playback. My first one is still functional, but the clip broke, so I bought another one. This one is for a friend who counted on me to pick the best player. I would definitely buy it again.

                              One of the most confusing audio products I have ever purchased. That it needs a 46 page instruction manual tells the whole story. Great sounds. Amazing size. But I totally regret this purchase and have yet to figure out how the thing works and I have worked in technology my whole life. Avoid this product!

                                This is probably the best general-purpose player/FM radio receiver. FiiO X3 is a better player/USB DAC combination with uncompressed/high sample rate/greater bit depth, but it's also larger, lacks a radio receiver, and has limited track management -- not exactly general purpose, and does not fit into the headphones case. This one, at least after installing Rockbox firmware, is very convenient, can use miniSD cards to expand its storage, supports various themes and fonts for its screen, and looks like regular storage device when connected to a computer. I use it with ATH-M50 headphones, and it has no problems driving them with its output. I guess, with high-impedance headphones it may be somewhat different.

                                For some insane reason, USB jack on this player is mini-USB, not micro-USB that everything else uses, so its cable is annoyingly unique among other USB-connected devices that I have.

                                I was looking for a replacement for a zoom and compared the San Disk Sansa to the shuffle.The Sansa has great sound, easy to load, much better price, 4GB to 2GB's on the Apple, plus access for a card. There was really no comparison . The earphones that came with the sansa were more than adequate. Add a B&H 3 year warranty for $[$]and you're still under $[$].

                                            The first one I had I returned as the resume feature would not work. Neither one read my ID tags decently and many files wouldn't ever play no matter what work around I tried, although these same files did on other media players. It also randomly "refreshes media" and with a big card in it this takes way too long to bother using the extra card. Their tech support did try to help me, but this thing simply doesn't work well. For this price point, I suppose we can't expect much. Otherwise, it would have been good. Sounds great.

                                            I tried to retract my previous review but apparently that is not an option. Now that I've have this thing a couple months, it's far from the 5 star review I had previously given it as I've had a litany of problems with this.

                                            I must say, however, their tech support did try and even replaced the original one for me. The main problem with that one was that it wouldn't resume which was very annoying. Thankfully, I never had a problem with this feature on the replacement.

                                            The replacement presented new troubles. It has a difficult time reading ID tags my other players can. I ended up simply rewriting them with the same info, sometimes a couple times, on the same album to make it work. It would also "double genre" music, but my ipod has always had that problem too. But I must say it doesn't do very good at reading ID tags in general because of this.

                                            Then, there are a few albums it simply won't play at all for no apparent reason. These albums play fine on my other players including ipod, phone, and panasonic, but this thing won't touch them.

                                            Worst of all, it has developed this "refreshing media" problem where it will randomly rescan the media after being off, but not just after it's been charged or hooked up to my PC. Just no reason at all. This is very annoying as it takes a very long time to do this, and never knowing when it's going to happen, I can't really plan for it ahead of time. I have emailed tech support about this, and they gave me a few suggestions all of which have not worked.

                                            Most of the positives on my other review are true-ease of use (when it actually works), sounds good, lots of space with the up to 16gb card, it's dirt cheap, but overall, I've just had way too many problems with this unit to recommend it. At best, I'd say proceed with caution.
