The SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip MP3 Player (4GB) has some pretty good things going for it. For one thing, it's super-small and light. Secondly, as the name suggests, it clips onto your clothing or bag. Once you clip the Clip Zip on your person and turn it on you can forget it's even there, and just chill out to your tunes. The Clip Zip also happens to be light on your wallet.

In addition to playing your music, it also plays the FM radio and audiobooks, does voice and radio recordings, and acts as a stopwatch. The 4GB internal memory can be given a boost using optional microSDHC memory cards as well. And menu navigation and album art are displayed on the 1.1" color screen. The simple control buttons on the unit also make it easy to switch between songs and adjust volume, even when you're doing sports or other activities.

      I use this when I exercise. I bought this one to replace my Sansa Clip. Why - small, clip-on, audiobook formats,price, storage capacity/ expandability & past experience with Sansa Clip. Being able to add memory cards was a great incentive. I don't listen to music on it so I have no review for that. I like that the screen is in color and I can see the book covers, but I don't like that the battery charge color is so light & tiny I can't tell if the battery is charged or needs charging. The old clip used to tell me what book part I was on out of the total number of parts in the book, but the clip zip gives me a time countdown of the current part but doesn't tell me which part of the book I'm on. Controls are easy to use without sight & I like the position of the on/off on top. Earbuds, ouch, just go ahead and get some that are comfortable. When clip zip is on & I pinch it to attach clip to clothes the sound blinks out. Clip zip manual at Sandisk doesn't exist yet, only goes as high as the Clip Plus. If I'd never had the Clip I would love the Clip Zip. Would I go back to the Clip? no, the Clip Zip has too many options I don't want to give up. A few software mods and the Zip would be near perfect.

      I fell in love with this little but very useful device. It contained everything I wished for in a player: portability, content, support. Until one day I charged it and the whole thing overheated and fried. My assessment is that the micro SD card overheats very easily and damages easily. I had the device for 5 months before it became useless.

        Nice this has expandable storage. Interface easy to use, works well when plugged into my portable speaker. Easy to use when plugged into computer, just drag and drop mp3 files from one folder into this drive. Wife likes it, especially since it also has radio.

        The only drawback is the radio reception, which isn't great. Just the strongest local stations usually come in. Probably hard to create enough antenna surface area in such a small unit, but I bought this because it at least has an FM radio option (not AM radio though, I don't think...)

        Comments about SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip MP3 Player (4GB, Black):

        The device is used for the FM Radio, and the fact it can record the same.
        I would have rated it 5 stars, but the operation of it is just not intuitive . I could not operate it without directions, although that may be that I'm over 70, but have always been involved in high tech business.
        Also, I cannot locate the specifications of the charging system; voltage, amps, etc.
        All that said, it works well for what I need it for.

              I've been hunting for a small mp3 player that will work best with my V-Moda Crossfade headphones during my travel and exercises schedules. I already have an iPod Nano, a Sansa Clip and a Philips GoGear Raga 4... and here's my verdict: The Sansa Clip Zip outperforms those others mentioned as far as detailed clarity sound is concerned... sounding like as if you're there with the band playing next to you! I would recommend this to a friend. This is still the best choice for what I need it for... and the one that works best to match V-Moda Crossfade's 5 - 30,000 Hz Frequency Response range.

                        Works with Windows Media Player perfectly. It's the perfect size and weight. Any smaller and you wouldn't have been able to press the buttons. The menus are very similar to old Creative players. They're quick to navigate and you don't need to look at the screen. I was very impressed with the sound quality on this little thing.

                            This is easy to load from my computer music. Very intuitive operating system. Good sound quality. I use it mostly while working out, and the clip function is handy.

                            The pause button stopped working after just two weeks. Very unimpressed by the poor quality.

                              It just works! It's small, lightweight, easy to use, stays where you clip it, good sound, and long battery life.

                              Smaller than What I was imagine of.
                              Beating iPod Shuffle, in all ways.
                              It has all that you can think of for a small device like this,
                              No need to install iTunes, no need for Sync, no need for generating library,
                              Just Copy and Paste into the drive,
                              It has all advance options too, even custome Equilizers
                              Great sound Quality, even for FM..
                              Need more, just insert your songs with already copied microSD.
                              The Most, it has Screen, it's not Blind like iPod Shuffle :) lol
