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. Just bad
Buy a new one instead, refurbished products tend to be risky business

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...
Summary: I don't see how this is an advancement over the old dependable clip. It's a poor solution to an almost non-existent problem. If someone wants a nice display they are going to be looking for another brand anyway; for me, sansa has always meant simple and clear.
Pros: -Price is still low for what you get. -Stopwatch function may be useful for joggers. - Larger display... but at the cost of several negatives below
Cons: The larger display: - takes up battery life needlessly - Is less simple than old clip style; album art often makes things harder to read - Forced album art on playback slows down skipping songs to a crawl! - Causes a slightly larger unit In addition: - The buttons are too sensitive and pretty muc...
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.
Summary: My old 8GB iPhone is running out of space. I was hoping the Clip Zip with an SD expansion card might make a good portable home for my music collection. Wrong! First the Clip Zip needed charging. After 3 hours I tried it with an SD card that I had loaded with music via Windows Media Player.
Summary: by searching internet the lockups and flower screen brick, are common by the hundred if not thousands. with no real fix by manufacturer. If PC doesn't see it don't tell me to reload firmware, DA! needs a real hard reset.
Pros: good price for a player I could leave in truck or take a walk with. expandable memory made it hold more music then I can listen to in a year. very simple and easy to use.
Cons: locked up from time to time and after loading new file to it, it could sit for an hour or more on a screen saying updating media. Now for final time locked there and never got off the screen. when I tried to reset per the sandisk website it doesn't reset just comes up to flower screen and is a br...
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.
