A great addition to your Samsung phone
I like to listen to music and podcasts while I'm working out or working in the house and garden. The Samsung Muse is great for these things as it's small, easy to load with programming and has great battery life. I've used several different MP3 players in the past. Each has had drawbacks and nice features. I'm very pleased with my Samsung Muse as it has enough capacity to hold what I need, and yet is small and unobtrusive.
Setting up the Muse was easy.
Affordable price, 2x storage of iPod Shuffle
People who are into iPod shuffle-type MP3 players should dig the $50 Samsung Muse. You get a small, light, clip-able device that delivers decent audio, which is all you need. The fact that it can sync music from a smartphone as well as a PC is a nice bonus, though choosing individual tracks can be a challenge. It's the same price as an iPod shuffle yet offers twice as much storage space (4GB vs 2GB), which is also a nice bonus, though 4GB still doesn't get you far.
Ear buds are surprisingly good
I'm digging the pebble. It's designed to be the sort of lightweight MP3 player you might wear to the gym, and as that it performs wonderfully. As a more full-time player, you're obviously missing a display and proper scrubbing. But you knew that going into this. It's a "shuffle"-type device, made even more evident by the fact that I haven't quite figured out how it decides what order to play the songs.
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.
Pretty good, for about 3 months
This mp4 is pretty good for about the first 3 months. had no problems at all with it.
then about one week ago i decided to try putting an episode of a show onto it after converting of course.
after it transferred i tried to view it and the device froze completely. i LITERALLY had to wait for the battery to die and i happened to be fully charged at the time. so that was 4 hours waiting for it to die then waiting for it to recharge.
Can't operate it
I recently bought the MP823 to replace my Sansa that I had had for a few years. All I was looking for is something that would pay a few songs while I exercise, and also had a radio. The radio works great. And the unit will play any ONE MP3. The problem is it that the instruction manual and the controls are both poor. I can't figure out how to play a playlist or all the songs by a single artist. I can select any song to play but the following song will be random.
Okay for music, avoid for podcasts
I've been using this for about 4 weeks. I wanted a cheap non-Apple, MP3 player for listening to podcasts and went with the GPX ML551B.
The negatives outweigh the positives. The only real positive is that I can easily drag/drop files to it, and it's ready to go (I hate iTunes).
If you are only going to play music on it, it's fine. If you are going to be listening to longer audio files - like podcasts - you should be aware of the following.
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.
Weak touchscreen, feels really cheap... but then again it was.
Music plays fine, havnt had any lag or quality problems. Built in speaker works well, nothing special but about standard built-in speaker quality. Camera is better than I thought it would be. Overall its a decent product, works well for music and video, navigation does not flow as well as i would like but is still pretty intuitive. Good price for a touchscreen with a camera, but only get it if you dont mind the lack of quality.
