Summary: I bought this as a gift for my son for Christmas and he was excited about it but was not very happy with the size of the screen...it's kinda hard to read stuff on it. The headphones it came with were extremely cheap and broke almost immediately so he hasn't even really used it. You definitely get what you pay for!
Summary: I have bought several Sansa mp3 players for my kids. The players themselves are great--they are easy to use, hold a lot, and put out great sound. If it were not for problems with the port where the headphones plug in we probably would still be using the first ones we bought years ago. After going through two in just a few years, my very careful child switched to an ipod 2 years ago and has not had a problem with audio out connections since.
Summary: Good Product. Regardless of product's origination, a simple "How To Get Started" info. sheet should always be included.... Amazon / customer service, or distributor would only gain with this type of public relations approach. WFH.
Summary: I reviewed the 2 gen older version of this mp3 player several years ago. The Sansa Clip+. Let me just direct you to that product since it is still the best mp3 player in this category/price range. It's successor, the Clip Zip, introduced a (crappy) color screen, slightly crappier build and a few less really useful features. It was annoying, but still a lot of capabilities in such a small form factor and under 50 bucks.
Summary: I really want to like these a lot. We bought two as gifts for our kids and each player has it's own quirks, and we nearly sent one back since it apparently died but came alive just before shipping away. They are so light and diminutive that they hardly weigh anything, and they don't have enough weight to cause concern for breaking. It's as if they could be clipped on and forgotten. The interface is straightforward and the little back button was smart.
