Conclusion: The SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip is a solid budget MP3 player, small enough to clip to a shirt and sturdy enough to survive your workouts. And it offers much more than the same-price iPod shuffle.
Pros: Inexpensive, especially for 8GB of storage. 1.1-inch screen makes navigation easy and displays album art. Easy to set up and use. Storage is expandable. FM radio and Rhapsody integration.
Cons: Slow to boot up. Bundled earbuds are poor quality and uncomfortable.
