Summary: I bought one of these years ago for $30 and I can't believe they are now $70. Right away the hold button stopped working on mine. Now the power button doesn't work and I have to plug it in to turn it on.
Summary: I have come to appreciate the Sandisk line of mp3 players. I don't know what was so important that they couldn't leave this in the shop until this one was perfect! The lock does not prevent the player from turning off.
Summary: I have owned multiple Sandisk players [Clip, Clip+]. This is the worst. The interface is terrible, not remembering where you were when turned off and back on, not continuing to next disk in list without setting up complicated playlist, limited audiobook formats, having to push multiple buttons for...

Summary: I like and have used SanDisk MP3 players for about 10 years. Have always been able to copy my playlists from Windows Media Player straight to the mp3 player until I purchased this one. To copy playlists is a long and convoluted process, will never buy one of these again.
Summary: I love the increased speed for startup and refreshing media. The improvement in battery life is welcome too. But software changes compared with other Sansa players have ruined the device’s use for podcast playback, which is my chief use for an MP3 player.
Summary: Doesn't work well at all. The charging port is intermittently working. The unit will not pause intermittently requiring me to power it down in order to get the pause function back. Some times it won't turn on at all for as much as an hour.
Up until today it worked pretty well. Now - not so much

Summary: Purchased this on October 2014. Up until today it worked pretty well. Now - not so much. After charging the unit, I disconnected the charging cord and the player is "stuck" with the picture of the USB charger. I can't get it to clear, turn off or play music.
Summary: EDIT: OK, I've got my own hate now. The thing quit working today while I was running. Sport? No way. It behaves as if the volume button is stuck in the lower/down position. Restart doesn't help. Turn it on, and it goes silent immediately.
Summary: I bought this on a Black Friday special since my beloved Clip + battery is wearing out. I can confirm the 25 hour battery, but it was unusable out of the box until I downloaded the update from the sansa website. This now means there is a "lock" function.
