Summary: I love the Clip+, but the Clip Zip didn't even survive 6 months in my care. Since the unit was a manufacturer refurb, it wasn't covered under warranty. This is okay because the price was good, sound quality is great, the design easy to use and I paid less than $40..
Summary: Its simple and easy to work and not much trouble getting FM stations. One thing I'm a little disappointed with is the shortness of battery, It only seems to last about 3 and half hours when used continually.
Summary: Works as described. Plays good music with clear production. I once used it for a party and connected it to huge speakers and it was fantastic. Only down side is that I couldn't get it to work well with extra memory. It shut down on me when I put in an SD card with songs.
Nice simple product but more durability would be nice

Summary: I really like the Sansa Clip Zip. It is easy to use, sounds great and does everything I want (MP3s, radio, convient clip for excercize) and a lot more. Down sides are a poor indication of battery life and they do not last. The processor seems to last me 6 months to 1 year of hard use.
Summary: I purchased player to use in my new car. It did not work. Long story short, the USB cord that came with the player didn't fit the MP3 properly. I could load music and charge the player, but I could not play music in my car. It was obvious the cord did not fit the player as it should.
Summary: I was looking for a player to replace my Creative Muvoo v 100s (I bought 7 of them, but made the mistake of giving many of them away.) I wish I had bought all of them they had in stock at the time. They are no longer made.
Summary: This is a simple and intuitive player. My 11 year old son was able to work it from the start without directions. The available soft cover accessory is a good idea if you plan to buy this for a kid.
