    The Clip+ does everything it needs to, and nothing it doesn’t., September 18, 2009

    I owned the first generation clip, and the new 8gb clip+ retains everything that was great about the first while adding all around refinements.

    Pros:
    – Overall build quality has improved, but especially with the clip mechanism.
    – Files on MicroSD integrate seemlessly with the on board memory.
    – The volume and power buttons have more ergonomic placement on the device.
    – Sound quality remains great.
    – Audiobook files can be sped up slightly to save some “reading” time.
    – The interface is a little smoother and nicer to move through.
    – The square trackpad makes it easier to navigate without looking at the player. (good for runners)

    Cons:
    – No cap on the MicroSD slot, so that could potentially get dirty.

    If you don’t need gimmicks such as touch screens and web browsers, then this player is quite possibly the best on the market for value, size, and quality. The Clip+ is definitely worth the few extra bucks over what the first gen clip is selling for now.

    UPDATE: Having used the product for a while the one thing I’m disappointed with is battery life. The meter drains down to 50% at the expected pace, and then goes from 50% to 0 quite fast. I haven’t timed it but i’m sure the battery life (using all default settings) is quite less than the advertised 14-15 hours.

    Great upgrade to an already great budget player, September 9, 2009

    If all you are looking for is a great sounding, small, cheap mp3 player with a display and expandability options, then the clip + is your best choice. This is very similar to the old clip with the following major differences:

    – two minor button placement changes (improvement)
    – UI is a bit smoother (menus scroll now)
    – volume normalizing/gain
    – micro-SD slot for up to 16 added gigs (which is huge)
    – a little thicker, probably due to SD support
    – clip is no longer removable (depending on your preference, this is a good or bad thing-guess you could just rip it off and file it down if you wanted to)

    As always, it sounds great and blows away the iPod Shuffle in terms of value. So light and small–great for the gym. If you need your mp3 player to play games, surf the internet or serve double purpose as a grocery list, then this isn’t for you, but if you’re on a budget or just need something that plays music and does so well, this is the one.

    How to create playlists, December 5, 2009

    I have an iPod classic and iPhone, but I needed something for exercising. I was going to add another iPod to my collection b/c they are so small now, but I saw this at a local store and got it. Why? Cheap and great features! This can’t be beat for the price. Plus, some other cool benefits are that it has an FM receiver so I can listen to the TV stations when I’m at the gym on the treadmill. It also has a built-in microphone which works great for me b/c I record notes to myself a lot and the iPhone’s memo apps are a huge pain to the transfer the sound files to my computer (they use email to do it and there are size limits). Clip+ saves my recordings as Wav files and I can copy and paste them to my computer. Sweet.

    If you want to create playlists, you should know that Windows Media Player is very buggy and doesn’t work well with this. I thought I was missing the obvious till I Googled it and see that everyone else feels the same. The cure for this is a free program called MediaMonkey. It’s the easiest program to use for transferring playlists to the Clip+. Just create your playlists in MM and then right-click it’s name and select ‘Synch to Sansa Clip+’. Piece of cake! I spent over an hour screwing with Windows Media Player and I never could get it to work properly.

    Oh yeah – one more thing. When you plug the USB sync cable into the Clip+, push it all the way in till it’s flush. When I push mine in it actually “clicks” half way and it feels like it’s in there. But it’s not. Push it all the way in to connect it.
