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.
I am now on my second model of this brand of player. It's great to use, but by no means is it durable. My first one lasted roughly a month before the play/pause button broke, and the second one had the same problem a few days ago after a little over six months of use. Shame, because when it's working, this really is a fine player.
The video is fine. AVI works perfectly, MPG video is sometimes a little laggy and don't bother with mp4. The microSD slot (with an 8GB limit) is fantastic.
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.
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.
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.
