Conclusion: To conclude my review of the Sansa Clip+ I would like to say that I love this little device and would honestly like to recommend it to anyone who has not owned an MP3 player before or to someone who would like something a little different to what they’ve had previously, all in all I think that this device surprised me in almost every way and it was certainly a lot better than I expected it to be, which definitely includes its retail price as it is great value for money.
Conclusion: SanDisk’s Clip+ is truly the people’s MP3 player. While Apple has been busy stuffing the Shuffle into an even smaller profile and building a bizarre control profile that defies logic, SanDisk has been steadfastly improving the essentials: a bright screen, intuitive controls, and a reasonable price point. It won’t win any designs for industrial design, but a comprehensive list of pros more than make up for it.
Pros: Affordable; simple to use; small and lightweight; microSD expansion; long battery life
