Amazing Player for the Price
The bottom line here is this is an amazingly good MP3 player. Is it perfect? No, obviously not. But there are a lot of players on the market with fewer options for a lot more money. I spent several days researching every player on the market and the Clip Zip has the best combination of options at the best price, hands down.
Impressive array of features
Overall, the Sansa Clip Zip is an appealing value alternative to the nano or shuffle. Yes, it's not as cool-looking, and yes, it lacks some of the sexier features on Apple's MP3 players (such as the VoiceOver feature that uses computer-generated speech to tell you what you're listening to), but it delivers a lot of meat-and-potatoes functionality for not too much money.
Good format support
Low cost, good format support and expandable memory team up to make the SanDisk Clip Zip MP3 player a solid choice if you're strapped for cash. It doesn't look or feel expensive, but its rear clip is sturdy enough to grip onto clothing reliably. Looking for a primary MP3 player? We'd recommend considering a slightly more expensive player with longer battery life. But as a second or sporty music source, it's a winner.
The Zip Clip's Settings function provides an assortment of controls and options, including display brightness, the way the navigation keypad works with audiobooks, and even a nifty feature that compensates for differences in volume levels on music tracks (so that you don't get blasted away by a track that was created at exceptionally high levels). Overall, the Sansa Clip Zip is an appealing value alternative to the Nano or Shuffle.
Died within 12 days
I bought this mp3 player locally, on sale, based on the high reviews by others here on Amazon.com. The Trio T2810C is loaded with features, so I was really excited about the purchase. However, the touchscreen never worked very good for me. I was tap, tap, tapping away trying to get the thing to finally respond. So that was disappointing. I tried all the features and they worked more or less as promised.
Do not buy
This product is horrible. You have tap on the screen multiple times in order for it to go through, even though it is touch screen. there's was a shortage in the device within a couple of weeks. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone, do not buy this product because it is a waste of your money.
Cheap but clunky
Nice little mp3 player - what can you expect for $25? The reason I am giving it two out of five stars is its poor design. Adjusting the volume (single most important function) cannot be done with the buttons on top of the player but you have to bring up a menu sweeping the surface. Also there is no 'hold' button, while fumbling around to clip it on your clothes it is all too easy to accidentally scroll to the next track. Designed by someone who does not use it on a daily basis.
Its easy to download music but...
It is ridiculously hard to download video, the screen is unresponsive, and tit wasn't very durable. Very cheap plastic, like a cheap knockoff child's toy. Now I have a Pyrus MP3/MP4/MP5 Player I got for 40$ and i LOVE IT. Search for "Pyrus Electronics 4gb Mp3/mp4/mp5 Player with 2.8 Inch Touch Screen and All Stainless Steel Casing - Black" instead, MUCH better buy.
Very cheaply made. Touch-screen is mostly unresponsive and the product I received was defective (I assume). The battery held maybe 10-15 minutes of power when fully charged. The software CD that came with the player was not "Windows-verified" and caused several errors when used. I order ALOT of items on Amazon.com, and I was compelled to write this review as a warning. For forty+ dollars, you would be better off with something more reliable.
A paper weight is more functional
For Christmas the kids got one of these each from a family friend. It turns on, screen navigates and I can change options. FM radio works, voice recording/playback of it works. I cannot put MP3s on it however. This blasted thing will not recognize any file format I use (mp3 and wav) as music.
First thing I did was link it to the computer via USB. Ok, I see the root directory and no subfolders. I create one titled MP3 and load up music.
