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.
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. At the end of life it takes minutes to even startup before it just quits (lasted longer than the Apple I bought).
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. I found a USB cord at home that charged a Bluetooth speaker. I use that now with my Sansa Clip and it works great.
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.
Summary: It is an mp3 and fm radio in one. I bought it for the radio. The reception is not the best, it does not have an external antenna. I use it in an office and for some stations I have to hang the radio high up to get better reception.
Excerpt: This purchase replaced a previous version of the clip player and I'm very pleased with it. I think this is my third one. I use it for exercise and after a year or two it stops working, so I replace it. That's my only complaint. Maybe if you just stuff it in your pocket all of the time it will last longer.
Summary: Hard to beat for 20$. I bought this to replace and old I-POD, as all i ever did was use the MP3 feature. I added a Micro SD card to add space. The thing plays great and works great! It has a lot of great features. Easy to load music and such. What I do not like about it is the user interface as concerning the playback and the added storage. If you add music to the extra card, you have to go find it on the extra card menu.
