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. I had to remove the card and connect the device to a PC before it powered up again.
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: 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. Both the original Creative Zen and the MuVoo v 100 worked better for audiobooks, but didn't hold up well.
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: My purpose for purchasing this MP3 player was to play it in my car. My car has the hook up for MP3 players, ipod, etc. to play through the cars speakers. To my disappointment when I plugged it in to my car's usb port it would not work through the speakers. I plan to get an FM transmitter to use so I can listen to it in my car. Other than it not being compatible with my cars system, it has great sound to it.
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: I like the Sansa Clip Zip and find this price a very nice surprise and the delivery excellent. I have only two quibbles and that is due to the software that my local libraries use to transfer audiobooks to the Sansa. I have not been able to easily get the transfer to name the folders for author then book in the audiobook folder and have had to use the default setting of the Music folder instead.
