Bought the 8GB version for my mother in law, and this thing is surprisingly tiny. Just an FYI. Not much bigger than a couple half dollar coins stacked on top of one another, and no weight at all. As to it's performance, I couldn't tell ya. It has yet to play a song I've tried on it (MP3s mostly, which you would think would work...).

@wootificator: If yours will not play MP3s...it is defective. This definitely plays them. You need to return it.

I have bought 3 extra of these over the last year since Sansa started charging so much more? Out of the three I have had on refurb that is bad, the female connector for the headphones fell in. Damn. Still better than a Apple anything. I have 16GB of extra expanded memory. Listen to Audio books on MPS from Library. Rechargeable battery what else do you need!

Pro tip wife is singer. She needed scratch cut of her voice on new song. I told her I had mic on Sansa Clip. It worked great and sounded very good.She was shocked. She sings the songs I load them onto the computer in under 5 minutes her collaborator starts on the music! Who would have guessed?

The write-up on the ebay description says the supported audio formats are AAC and FLAC. Unless this has some strange firmware in it, I can't imagine it won't play MP3. I have some Sansa Clips and they all play MP3 just fine.

If you look in the "Features" section of the description, it says:

Compatible with a Variety of Formats: The Sansa Clip Zip MP3 Player is compatible with a wide range of audio formats, including MP3, WMA, secure WMA, AAC (for playing back DRM-free iTunes music), Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, and Audible.

I haven't found a format that it won't play. I have two of these and bought a few as gifts. At this price, get more than one!

I prefer the Sansa Clip+ over the zip because the Clip+ lets you add microSD cards to expand the capacity.

I have an 8 GB Clip (2nd gen I guess?) and it's still going strong. I've had it for around 5 years I think. I still use it. Why anyone would buy an iPod Shuffle over this is beyond me. The Clip has more storage, a screen so you can play specific music, an FM radio, a voice recorder, and other features that the Shuffle does not. It's small, it sounds good, and the clip is handy. I'd definitely recommend this if you're in the market for a small-capacity MP3 player.

@markmc27: Here's an even more obscure pro tip for Sansa. I was traveling in Australia and my roommate not only snored but talked in her sleep. I have very acute hearing and after about half an hour I can hear past the earplugs just fine. I could sleep through the snoring but the talking woke me up every time. I tried using the Sansa with a song on repeat but when the song changed over it would wake me. So I went and stood right beside a vigorous waterfall and collected maybe 15mins(?) worth of steady white noise. Played that on repeat fairly loudly with a pillow over my head and actually was able to sleep through the night.
