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 have had a Sansa Fuze+ for about a year now. I wanted to buy my wife an mp3 player, so I looked around and found this gem. My wife is not the most technologically literate, so I wanted something that was easy to use. The Fuze+ w/ it's slider touch pad, while an excellent mp3 player, can be a little frustrating at times, so I wanted something simpler. This was the ticket. It has an easy to use, simple toggle pad and a nice, clear, albeit small, color screen. The USB cord they give you is very short, but I was able to use the cord from my Fuze+ w/o any problems. I just plugged it in, Win7 recognized it, I opened Media Player and started loading songs. Worked like a charm. Don't even bother w/ the mini CD unless you really want to join (and pay for) Rhapsody.The ear buds they give you were not as bad as others complained about; you just need to use the custom equalizer to compensate for their lack of bass. However, I have been using a pair of Sennheiser over ear buds and bought another pair for my wife. They are not expensive and have a much better, fuller dynamic range.My only complaint, if you can call it one, is that it was a little smaller than I expected.

      The Idea of a portable audio device with a removable, exchangeable memory ( using a Micro SDHC card), so the you can have up to 40 GB of memory with more than one set of Playlists.
      But the Player dos not perform all that well. I takes a long time to " Refresh the Media " after disconnection from a computer (Several Hours). Songs that were downloaded from CD's to the computer do not play well, if at all and the art work which I got on iTunes does not appear.
      I would not recommend the purchase of this item.

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

        I got the new clip zip because I thought it would be more user friendly than the old clip. Important since I use it in the car. It basically is the same as the old clip. Just a larger display and in color. It's slightly easier than the old clip and worth the few extra bucks but I was disappointed. And why did they get rid of the timer that tells you how many minutes into the song you are?

              The 1.1" color screen is worth the extra $'s if you vision isn't perfect. It excepts more music file formats than others in this price range; even .m4a files that aren't listed. Those files do take up more space than the converted format. Add an 8GB chip[*] at B&H and you set. Of Course you'll want better ear buds than the ones provided.Great menus and easy to operate.

                I bought this player to use while running and working out in the gym, as well as for everyday use. It is definitely a great alternative to the iPod Nano at 1/3 the price. While it does feel cheap (made entirely of plastic), the sound quality is good and it works well. I love the clip, as it allows me to listen to my music even when I don't have any pockets to put a player into. Another feature that trumps the iPod Nano is the inclusion of the microSD slot. This allows for music storage far beyond the 4GB the player itself holds. Finally, no complicated software is required. You just plug it in, drag your music, and let it copy. Overall, it's perfect for what I bought it for, and the value can't be beat!

                  Bought for the Wife to use in the gym and it does a lot for the money. I do agree with the review on ____ that convinced me to buy it, if you don't want to spend a ton of money on something that can get lost/crushed/stolen/rained on (since it's plastic and not water/sweat proof), this is the route to go.

                  The Idea of a portable audio device with a removable, exchangeable memory ( using a Micro SDHC card), so the you can have up to 40 GB of memory with more than one set of Playlists.
                  But the Player dos not perform all that well. I takes a long time to " Refresh the Media " after disconnection from a computer (Several Hours). Songs that were downloaded from CD's to the computer do not play well, if at all and the art work which I got on iTunes does not appear.

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

                    I don't like the fact that I have to go online to get directions on how to use this product. Bring back the directions with the item.

                    I have only had the SanDisk mp3 player for a few days. However, it is much more complicated to use that I had hoped. (I am not very tech savvy). The sound is fine. I am hoping I will get to love this product.
