Summary: this is my third sansa clip and my first clip+ i tend to break everything that i own so if a small electronic device lasts me a year that is a great accomplishment. my main use for this thing riding my bicycle, my skateboard or my snowboard so it gets exposed to moisture varying tempratures and often finds itself sliding across pavement with me on top of it. when compared to the ipod shuffle i owned previously the sandisk is a no brainer.
Summary: Sound is great. Quick Start Guide show you how easy it is to re-charge the Sansa by connecting it to the PC; did not work here. I used my GPS charger to load the battery. Now let's talk about the installation CD SanDisk sansa clip+ with Rhapsody Software; when you install the Rhapsody Software you get a message saying "SORRY NO SERVICE FOR CANADA".

Pros: Easy To Setup, Lots of Storage, Reliable Performance, Sleek/Compact

You can play music in your preferred order/mode, in addition to shuffle, and you can see what is being played. The microSD slot effectively removes any limit on how much music/data you (not Steve Jobs) decide to carry around.
Pros: Easy To Setup, Great Sound, Inexpensive, LCD disply, Lots of Storage, MicroSD slot, Reliable Performance, Sleek/Compact
