I have had my Sansa Clip+ for about a month now and I use it every day. It makes waiting in store lines bearable :) I've added a 4Gig microSD card. This MP3 player works with my Rhapsody Premium account so that I can download up to 2300 songs and keep listening to them as long as I keep paying the $10/month subscription fee. Given the very wide selection of music available on Rhapsody, I think that this is reasonable. I have nothing bad to say about this device. I have used the FM radio and the voice recording feature. They work well. There are many more features available that I have yet to use. I don't think that you will find a better MP3 player at this price point.

Great Little MP3 Player
BIG SOUND IN TINY PACKAGE
This lil Sansa really sounds great. Shipped fast to my home, vibrant color screen and I can upgrade the memory with micro sd card( not included). jet black and classy looking great price!
plays M3U playlists!
I couldn't be happier with this player. It is very tiny (about the size of a matchbox) yet has very good sound, and the battery charge lasts a long time. The ability to add storage with low-cost microSD or microSDHC cards is awesome! Another great feature is its ability to play M3U playlists, which can be easily created using Windows Media Player. It took me a while to figure out how to do this. Here is how: To create an m3u playlist using files already on the player or its SD card, do the following: Before connecting the player to the computer, change the USB mode on the player to MSC. (Settings -> System Settings -> USB Mode -> MSC) Then connect the player to the computer using the USB cable, and browse the player or SD card to find the songs you want to include in the playlist. Drag and drop these into the “Now Playing list” in Windows Media Player. On the Windows Media Player file menu, select “Save Now Playing list as…” and save it as an .m3u file in the root directory of either the Sandisk player's internal memory or the SD card, depending on which location the songs are from. (I haven't yet figured out how to create a playlist using songs from both the internal memory and the SD card.)
Everyone should have one!
This is the best of my nine mp3 players. I did not get along with the ipod and started buying other brands...This Sandisk Sansa Clip is my third Clip style from Sandisk. This one includes a micro card slot and I downloaded the bible being read on my micro card via a regular SD card adapter and reader. It is wonderful. I always enjoyed the ease and style of the Sandisk Clips, but this one tops them all. The window is clear and gives the options clearly. The buttons are set to allow simple operation. The on and off button is easy to find; the volume control which is usually on the side of the device (and I loved that) is still very very easy to operate when listening. I truly enjoy and love this product and I am 71 years old just getting used to all the new tech stuff. I took this with me traveling to New York and listened to radio shows and music and the bible while on the plane and later on a two hour train ride to visit my son. The time flew and the clip allowed me to just clip it onto my shirt, put the ear buds in and enjoy.
I wanted an mp3 player to use while running, but didn't want to spend the $$ on an iPod. This Sansa is a great bang for the buck. It does everything I needed it to do and more. I didn't expect or need an FM tuner or Voice recorder, but they're on this unit too. It's tiny, but the buttons are quite manageable. First I used Windows Explorer to drag and drop files and folders onto it, and that worked fine. Then I decided to try using Windows Media Player to handle the syncing to my PC, and that's worked really well too. I was also pleased with the ear buds. I expected them to be disposable, but they actually sound quite good. Tip for audiobooks: use a mp3 tag editor to make sure the "genre" field on each files is set to "Audiobook". When the files are moved onto the Sansa, they will end up in the Audiobook category which enables bookmarking on more than one audiobook simultaneously. Another tip: go into the EQ settings, choose "Custom" and shape the sound to your liking. The presets are ok, but I got it to sound even better by customizing it myself.
Don't hesitate, buy it.
I use this product in conjunction with my motorcycle stereo system. The battery does't have to be recharged for two days and the controls are easy to use. Downloading music to the player from a computer is effortless. The only drawback is that this unit doesn't pick up many FM stations but as long as you have the music you love on it, it really doesn't matter. You will not be dissapointed with this player. Several of my riding buddies have purchased this very same player and they have nothing but good things to say.
Great little music player
I was looking for something for my 10 year old son that wasn't expensive or complicated. This MP3 met all my expectations. He was able to download all his favorite tunes with ease and the battery life last a long time. My son loves how he can shuffle the music and record his own voice if he has the desire. The clip makes it easy to clip it on your shirt and go. Lightweight, comfortable, easy to read. A good buy!
My daughter has used her player for over a year now for almost exclusively downloadable audiobooks. We have never had a problem with it. For the money we have found it to be an excellent value and a great first mp3 purchase.
nice little mp3 player
It works fine as advertised and it's quite small about the size of a car alarm remote on your keychain. I could use more bass in my earphones so i'm going to have to shop around for one.
very good for the price, but fragile
This is the second Sanza I've owned. I'm a little rough on my electronics cause I bike and job with it, so I've totaled both of them over time and am now online to get another. For the price you get 3 to 4 times the quality as others in its price range. I think the only disadvantage is the sensitivity. I especially love the slot radio option, where you can buy a pre-loaded micro-sim card, which comes with 1000 songs for only $22-$40 ...the only disadvantage of slot radio cards is that you cant make play lists and you cant use the back button to go back to recent songs until you've gone through them all. At least you can skip through the ones you dont like. I suppose this is a condition the record companies came up with to get you to buy the songs. But for about 3 cents a song, you cant beat it. Aside from that, everything else is user friendly and i also love the small size and heavy duty clip on the back that allows me to clip it to things.
