I've broken a ton, and not using these anymore -- It is better to have loved and lost rather than to have never loved at all

Summary: I use a combination of a Sansa Clip and Rhapsody to listen to Rhapsody while running. I've finally given up using the Sansa Clip (which I have used for years, and so desperately want to love) because they fail so quickly. Now, please realize that I clip them to my waistband and then run 5+ miles, so they're exposed to a pretty tough environment...but they're also sold as a portable MP3 player for exercising. In other words, your experience may vary.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for my mom who isn't that technologically advanced. Uploading music was easy but playing music became a problem. In the few months of owning this product I have reformatted it 5 times due this products constant problem with crashing and freezing. The plastic casing is also very cheap.
Summary: This player has a very large "REFURB" printed across the bottom front of the item. I purchased this as a gift, considering even new I would need to open the package and load it with music. I can not gift something with REFURB written across it.
Summary: This model of MP3 player is fine, we have others and they're good. This particular refurbished one however died while in use, four days after it was given as a birthday gift. Would not power up again, even when hooked up to the USB cable. Had to return it and will buy another, but a new one this time.
Pros: Size, simple button interface, Price (at the time of purchase 1/13)
Cons: Died without warning after 9 months of daily use. The unit was not dropped, abused, or otherwise tampered with. This model has a history of abrupt failure so buyer beware ! I'm going back to an iPod shuffle since the price is now comparable.
Wrong purchase, not disclosed you needed a laptop for the software. Money lost, unable to return.

Summary: It is okay but not for me. I read all the reviews before making the purchase, I must of missed something somewhere. I do not have a laptop computer, I have a desk top. The software is not compatible with a desk top. Cannot return the item due to the fact I had opened it with great anticipation. Money thrown down the drain, bad mistake on my part. Next time I will go into a store to make a purchase of this type.
I'll stay away from refurbished electronics in the future

Summary: I had bought this item new two years ago, and it worked wonderfully. After it was stolen during a home robbery I wanted to replace it and thought a refurbished model would work as well as my new one had. Wrong!! The radio reception is just not good, and since I use it for listening to the radio as much as for listening to music, this is definitely a problem.
Summary: PRO: Unit sounded great, very small and lightweight was good. Screen was very readable even for my poor eyesight. CON: Died in less than a month, would not take a charge. No battery access means you are stuck if this happens. USB interface to computer does not allow new folder creation via the explorer, you can only cut/copy/paste. Makes it a pain to add or remove songs.
