Summary: Rarely works. I have two (didn't learn from the first mistake) They have only been used while walking my dog to the park and home, nothing crazy yet the first one the radio stopped and the mp3s still worked from the memory card, the second the radio went first then the mp3s.
Buy a new one instead, refurbished products tend to be risky business
22 October 2014
Summary: I wouldn't bother with refurbished SanDisk players again, personally. The Sansa line, while great by all means (even more so when you install RockBox on it instead of the default operating system, it adds support to a whole bunch of music formats not supported out of the box, the equalizer is top-notch too), unfortunately had some items that were apparently quite fragile too...
Summary: I loved this little mp3 player, I didn't even mind that I had to down load rhapsodey even though I'm not a fan of them. I went to get on a plane recently, put ear phones on, and the volume button was stuck in and it was on full blast. Not a pleasant surprise after waiting at the airport for 7 hours.
Summary: I really don't know what happen to SanDisk newer products. They just don't seem to have the durable of the older MP3s. I purchase this SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip and with in two months, it never said another word. I never abused it or dropped it. It just froze I tried to reset it but it never worked again. I threw it away and went back to the older model which has been working fine for years.
Summary: I took a chance on a refurbished MP3 player for less than $20. Had owned one of these same brand only mine was 8GB. The refurb'd one lasted one day before it locked up and would not reboot. Back it goes. I ordered a Clip Zip in 8GB now, but also refurb. I hope I get lucky this time.
Summary: Thing died out on me after 40 days of use (won't turn on, but will plug into computer). Tried every fix the internet offered, and it's not easy getting into the internals. While it lasted it had a simple, usable interface, with decent sound and storage. At the price tag it's a bargain, provided your device doesn't break down. It is a significant risk, and my older model sansa clip suffered from soldering issues and needed repair.
Summary: My husband and I bought two one for each and neither one of us liked it, the battery doesn't hold its charge, we recorded songs from the radio and the audio was really bad, I think the only thing we both liked about it was the size!! We returned it.
Summary: The screen could be better (the older OLED version is a lot brighter). Even with the latest firmware, it would not display folder names I had created and named in Windows correctly. It would call them "New Folder". I tend to play music from folders I create on the device. While this is easy to manage in Windows, the Clip buries your folders deep in its menu structure. My dearly departed Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 was truly a good MP3 player for the money.
Pros: For the money, you get a compact, light-weight MP3 player with expandable storage. FM tuner is very good.
Cons: Died within one day. I used it the day I received it, then charged it overnight. The next day, it was completely dead. Unfortunately, this is an exchange-only item. I would rather get a refund. This may be the last time I buy a Sandisk product. I gave the Clip a try a few years ago and it died after a few weeks of light use. Must be my luck :(
Excerpt: This product really deserves a lot to be desired. The battery runs down to zero charge often -- it doesn't last for too long. It doesn't display the minutes left/minutes played in the song. It has a clock which is utterly useless. It shows the album artwork in color when you play it which is also useless. You cannot tell if it is on or off half them time and this is why I think the battery runs down so often. I used to have the clip+ and it was a lot better.
