    Sansa clip bigger is better?

    I have purchased 5 Sansa MP3 players for family members starting with a 2GB version, then moving to 4GB and most recently an 8GB Clip+ for myself after my daughter somehow broke her volume control and inherited my old Sansa. I doubt that I will ever use the extra memory slot but it's there in case that changes. I listen to downloaded audio books from the library, use it to play music in the car though a mini plug adapter in the tape player and have used FM radio converters as well. It's fatter now which I consider a minus and square keypad but smaller than a nano or touch which I consider a plus (I only want music and audio books and radio). During the warmer months this spends Saturday mornings with me in the garage and plugs into a Roland keyboard amp, very nice combination, as I work on restoring my 53 chevy truck so you can guess my age based on truck year. Color was important. Mine is black and everyone else's is red, pink etc so we do not mix them up. I leave the USB adapter in various computers at work and home so it's always ready to charge and that's never been a problem (auto shut off when you press pause after x number of seconds and returns where you left off on turn-on). The clip is handy on airplanes magazine pockets but pocket is where I usually have it. I use different earplugs, ones that came with it are uncomfortable for me and do not stay in when walking, etc. I leave equalizer setting on rock. It also works as a memo recorder. Haven't got used to the new software, panels work and move back and forth etc. and prefered the old version right hand side volume control I use with my thumb (new is on left) but again I just need to retrain myself. Dropped it once on hard floor and still works :-) No real complaints other than even 8GB wasn't enough space for my tunes and books. BTW, lots of MP3 players did not work with library audio books protected audio but this one does (all models). Priced right.

    This is the third Sandisk MP3 player I've owned. The previous two were excellent and lasted about 4 years each (nothing lasts forever). This one, however, is rubbish. It went on the fritz after about a week -- cutting off for no apparent reason. Also, a battery charge doesn't last as long as the previous model and, frankly, the thing is too small. Small is nice but a larger, better screen and a longer battery charge should have been more important than size. Try another brand.

        Comments about SanDisk 8GB Sansa Clip+ MP3 Player (Sleek Black):

        The Sansa Clip + Mp3 player is my first choice for active listening while on the go. It reproduces a beautiful acoustic image for both music and spoken word. It also has a recording function for note taking, a FM radio function to tune you into local radio and a mini SD slot for additional playback options.Over all I'd say this player really is the little player - it's surprisingly compact- that could and does deliver on its promises.On the down side-- the internal navigation which requires a modest learning curve to negotiate the deep (8 GB) filing sytem it uses.This is a small drawback for a player that offers multi function, sleek form and great audio fidelity for both music and spoken word.

          I bought this for our 5 yr old who loves music. She puts her headset on, clips this on and dances away. This tiny device holds a ton of music and is incredibly durable. Just be careful it doesn't get lost! ; ) Overall this is a great value.

          I bought this for my Boyfriend for Christmas. I would have given it 5 stars, but there's a problem with downloading the CD that comes with it, it won't download completely and you can't visit the website either. You click on the visit sansa website and it takes you to Century 21 real estate homes. But I attached the MP3 player to my computer and downloaded a bunch of songs, using Windows Media Player, the product is awesome, it's clear, loud, easy to find the songs and I am now jealous and want one too. I would recommend buying this if you want an MP3 player.

            After receiving the subject MP3 player and charging via a USB adapter, the display showed the Music option but no action could change that display. The battery icon showed about half charge. I tried resetting the unit several times, all failed. Nothing would change the Music icon (earphones).

            My computer, Vista Home Premium, recognized the unit and I was able to copy MP3 files into the Music folder. However, I was unable to play any trough the player. The properties display on the computer showed a firmware version of v01.02.17A compared to the latest of v01.02.18 according to your web site.

            The SansaUpdaterInstall failed to install on my computer, even when I ran as administrator. After I gave permission to continue installation, nothing installed. No icon in the system tray. Nothing in the All Programs Menu. Nothing in the Install/Uninstall list. When I downloaded the firmware files and tiied to drag and drop the clppa.bin file, the action was not allowed. I attempted to drag to both the Sansa icon and the internal memory icon without success.

            About two months ago I purchased from another company the same model but a refurbished unit. I showed a very similar condition. I returned it.

            Comments about SanDisk 8GB Sansa Clip+ MP3 Player (Sleek Black):

            This was such a good deal and I had been going to try it for a while.
            I bought it for the clip feature 1st and FM features were a must.
            The FM is mediocre but the clip is awesome. I had a Sony Walkman and fought it constantly at the gym keeping it out of the way.
            The sound quality on the Sansa is not nearly as nice as the Walkman. There is a real difference.
            But it is good enough and the clip stays anywhere, pocket, sleeve, strap ...so I am delighted.
            It doesn't let me get FM 93.0 which is what one of the TV's at the gym is set on.
            It will do either 92.9 or 93.1. I have NO IDEA why it does not do 93.0. This is irksome but there are several TV's so not a deal breaker.
            It picks up radio FM okay and I live in a low reception area.

                            This is a very simple MP3 Player and that is why it is so perfect for listening on the move. Its in no way as fancy looking as some, but so well designed for any outdoor pusuits or just plugging in and forgetting about it. Love it and use it everyday.

                              I gave it 4 stars instead of five because it's a bit annoying when I pause the mp3 and then try to rewind.. It doesn't rewind. It skips the track and goes to the next ones. Then I lose my place... Other than that, it's a nice player.

                                  This is like the older audio-only Ipods, but without the need for Itunes or any other gimmicky software. The documentation speaks of Windows Media Player. A disk for installing Rhapsody. is provided.Nonsense! All you need is a good file manager and a text editor (you already have Notepad). Just copy the music files you want (usually MP3), and use text editor to create an M3U playlist.Simple and works great!

                                    It is amazing to have such a huge library of music in the palm of my hand.The micro SD card is an excellent feature. The only problem I've had is that the volume controls are a little difficult to operate.

                                    I was surprised how good the Sansa Clip 8G sounds for its tiny size. Delivers great stereo sound even in old recordings. The FM Radio tuner is a nice little feature, great sensitivity and it has lots of pre-sets! Easy to fill with music and/or files and decent battery life. Takes a bit too long to charge (in my opinion) but it lasts a long while. Does not drive over-the-ear headphones very good but I recommend the Sansa Clip+ MP3 Player to anyone.
