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.
For what it's worth
For what its worth, I like the unit, the battery last long enough for me to make my 18 hours in flights. This unit has but one down fall, You can not create a play list with it. You have to create the play list on your computer and then load it in. I find this very inconvenient. I like to play music I am in the mood for, not plan on what mood I will be in. If this unit had that I would have rated it higher.
Decent bundled earphones
Not quite cheap, but definitely cheerful, the NWZ-E463 combines a natty design with a good-looking interface and a wealth of music-related features. There are some significant bits missing, such as lossless format support, expandable memory and a standard USB connection, but this won't bother everyone. The key to this player is that, thanks to its thumb-friendly physical controls, pleasant interface and decent earphones, it's a device that's enjoyable to use.
Battery life, Easy to navigate menu system, Sound Quality
For a fairly low budget price tag, the NWZ-E463 model offers a snazzy design with a great range of music-related features. There are some minor niggles such as too small sized buttons and menu issues, but overall, a pleasing interface along with a solid pair of sound isolating earphones. All of these features make this music player an attractive little device all round.
Great improvement on the first generation
I own the previous iteration of this device which is now available for $50. I was so happy with the previous generation that I bought one for my brother and his wife for Christmas. The 1stGen product is great. For anyone who works out and hates headphone cables, it provides hours of music with reasonably thought-out controls.
When I saw that Sony had come out with a new and improved version, I had to have it. So far I have been impressed.
Built-in rechargeable battery
Sony NWZ-W262 2GB Walkman MP3 Player comes with the USB connectivity and the playback supported files are MP3, WMA (Non-DRM), WMA (DRM), AAC-LC, linear PCM. Sony provides a range of accessories which comes along the purchase of this model and they are quick start guide, built-in rechargeable battery, USB cable accessories attachment.
A lovely sounding, capable player
The Cowon iAudio 9 is not a media player for everyone. While its user interface is intuitive for the most part, the sheer number of options means you'll be navigating a lot and at some point you may will end up lost in a sea of sub menus. Comprehensive audio format support makes up for this to a degree, but the lacklustre output when left un-tweaked might irk the casual listener. Once configured though, it's a lovely sounding, capable player.
Native Xvid support
I still find the UI a bit awkward and it will take most first time Cowon users a bit to get used to, but the UI is taking some baby steps on improvements. I guess one of my major complains though is the proprietary connection and odd video cable that accompanies it. I would really like to see the micro-USB phone manufactures have agreed upon as a standard and video out built into the 3.5mm audio jack.
Well designed .
The Cowon iAudio9 is available in three capacities â?? 4GB, 8GB and 16GB which come with price tags of Rs. 6750, Rs. 7750 and Rs. 10,000 respectively. Incidentally the 16GB model comes with a
free leather case that's worth about Rs. 1000. Thereâ?? s nothing wrong I could find with the player from the price to the features. It supports commonly used video and audio codecs for copy paste playback and the unique UI will take no more than a couple of tries to get the hang of.
vibrant OLED screen Cons
After making appeals to moms and tech neophytes everywhere with its ultra-simplistic SlotMusic and SlotRadio players, SanDisk returns to the land of real, full-featured MP3 players with the Sansa Clip+. Like its popular predecessor, the Sansa Clip, the Clip+ runs against the iPod Shuffles of the world with a compact and clippable (duh) profile, but makes an extra play toward practicality with the addition of a microSD slot that allows for expansion by up to 16GB.
Best low-end mp3 player
It's the best low-end mp3 player on the market, without question. And did I mention it costs $50 for 4GB? That's $20 less than the iPod shuffle and the Clip+ has the shuffle handily beat on features and sound quality. I recommend the 4GB version - it's worth the $10 upgrade from 2GB, and 8GB is really more music than the little guy is built to handle. The UI's a little dated, but it's totally serviceable, and the player's strengths more than make up for its drawbacks.
