you won't find them cheaper than this...and free shipping.

Can't recommend these little mp3 players enough. At this price, this is a steal.

They really are great. I have purchased them for my son, daughter, and my mom. They're small and they play music...good sound (radio, too). They hold a charge really well...great for trips. Throw a cheap 8gb microsd card in there and it holds my entire music library. If they break, we buy more...but I haven't had one break yet (2 years).

vote-for9vote-against

Yeah, me too. Ditto.
i have a a couple of Sensa products, and a few sets of others.
Including a pair of the broke by default Polaroids.
The Sensa works. Get one for walking around. I have one just for my car- just to plug into the radio.
Because in LA there just ain't no good radio.
The SD slot is extra icing. LAX to PHX, and I don't run out.
For this price, you know there's going to be a few b'days, xmas, whatever coming up. Get you some.

I'll spend my money on sansa rather than apple any day.

I have 2 Fuze players and a Clip, and these things work and work well.
All are refurbs and none have failed.
I agree, I can't recommend these enough!

I have a 1GB Sansa I got years ago on Woot, and it still works great. Has held up better than many a device twice it's size. If you don't grab this little guy, you are missing out on one of the best MP3's out there.

vote-for5vote-against

I have the older Clip that I got off Woot. I would highly recommend one if you want a simple easy to use MP3 player that has very good sound quality and solid battery life. It also requires no software to load up with files, just get the drivers for the device which are automatically detected. It will show up as a flash drive and you can drag and drop files. The newer ones have a microSD slot which mine did not have, so it's expandable which is great. If you install the Rockbox firmware it becomes even better with additional functionality.

Love this lil mp3 player. I had a 4gb and it got stolen so i upgraded to an 8gb. Great size, great battery life and for 19.99 its a steal!! Do it!

vote-for1vote-against

how is the SQ on these compared to the fuze? my original clip was very good, but not as good as the fuze at the time.

vote-for1vote-against

Not worth it. I had a refurb one just like this. It lasted about 3 months before the screen went blank.

vote-for2vote-against

Pretty annoyed because I just bought one three weeks ago for about 15$ more at the same location.

Pro: Great battery life at first, small, light, intuitive.

Cons: Batteries tend to crap out after a year or two and stop holding a good charge. The ones I've owned have a tendency to wear out around the audio outlet. It'll end up losing left or right audio, and then everything gets fuzzy (at first it's helped by putting pressure on just the right place of the player).

Still cheap for the use.

I have gotten at least 4 different Sansas. I have had both the older and this clip. They have all performed marvelously. One finally quit allowing me to adjust the volume and another won't do anything, but this is after using them over and over and over again! I use mine to record and playback and lovebeing ab;le to record things and recommend them highly. The batteries have lasted and lasted also for me. I plan to get several more of these.

vote-for5vote-against

I've become addicted to these. I keep buying them because I'm afraid they will stop making them. Just awesome mp3 players. At this price....BUY!

The Sansa Clip is my favorite MP3 player by a mile. The iPod Touch is great for apps, but when it comes to just playing music, The Clip is fantastic. Audio quality is great, especially if you use premium ear buds. at $20 delivered, this is a no brainer. Want to make someone happy? Load a "Clip" up with their favorite artists and give it as a gift.

Terrible for working out. Clip will not hold to a shirt and if you clip to your shorts.... well, read about the broken clips.

Other than that, these are terrific! Love mine!

Got my wife one of these (and I opted for the Sansa Fuze) a year or two ago and no complaints. Terrific amount of bang for the buck and the microSD slot is great!

vote-for3vote-against

I love Sansa music products. I prefer them to my iPod. In for one (I already have two).

@justagigilo85: I got one of these a month or so ago and have been using it 3x/week during workouts. It's been good so far, and I don't have to worry about wrecking my phone. OTOH, my phone is a Galaxy Note, so I'd probably be getting a better workout if I was using it instead. :)

Cut it out, people! Don't talk these things up! These little beauties need to be kept secret. They're not making any more of them, you know? What the heck is wrong with you? :)

vote-for1vote-against

The previous one of these I bought lasted a whole 4 days. Not that it malfunctioned, I just lost the dang thing b/c it's so small I didn't even notice it had fallen out of my pocket. It is pretty neat, and the price is right, but I just can't hold on to something that small to save my life.

Sansas #1& 2, meet Sansa #3.

These things are great. Only complaints about them are:

* Battery life is pretty bad.
* They use a mini-usb plug, which are a lot less common these days than micro-usb. So you'll either need to carry a separate charger cable, or find a mini to micro adapter.

@gambrinus2: My family has a total of 6 sansas and none of them have poor battery life, most especially the simpler models like this one. All of ours were refurbished and while we haven't beat the snot out of them, we haven't treated them all that nicely either. The batteries still kick ass in our opinion. My husband listens to his sansa clip at work and generally gets 2 whole 10hr. shifts out of his sansa (minus lunch/break times, of course), so you can safely guess that he gets at least 18hours of music time, without any worry that he'll lose the tunage.

side note: i've read that the clips have a potential problem that the microSD card may be able to come out by itself over time. to safeguard against losing a 32GB card, we spent a very few dollars on this (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BFLS4U/ - was about $1 less when we purchased). a pretty cheap insurance policy, if you ask me.

we LOVE our sansas and recommend them to anyone who will listen :)

What was the other ROM that people use on these? And how easy a process is that?

vote-for2vote-against

@takenforgranite: That would be RockBox (www.rockbox.org). I installed it just to see what it offers, and while I honestly don't need it (the Clip is great all by itself), it adds some pretty cool functionality. You can even play Doom on it. Or, well, try to. The graphics aren't really that usable.

Oh, and as far as the simplicity of the transfer, it's pretty much the easiest thing to do in the world.

Do note, however, that RockBox breaks the USB connectivity with your PC, and you'll have to boot into the regular firmware to reconnect to PC. It crashes pretty bad if you plug it in while RockBox is running.

But on the bright side, you CAN boot into the regular firmware anytime you want.

@kawatecchan: So every time I'd want to reconnect my Sansa to my PC I'd have to reboot into non-Rockbox mode? That's kinda annoying since I currently update my podcasts daily onto my Sansa in the morning. =(

vote-for1vote-against

Best bang for the buck - just hope they don't ever stop making these guys!!!

vote-for1vote-against

For all of you FLOSS people, this is one of the few players out there (and the only one that is cheap) that can play .ogg files. Just make sure you have the most up to date firmware.

With time running out I bought one. This will be my second sansa.
This summer my ipod classis's HD went bad, and so I started a fund to replace it. In the meantime I bought a clip + It does what I want it to do which is play mostly podcasts. I can buy 10 refurb sansa clip + for the price of an ipod classic, and the sansa handles just about any audio files I throw at it. I cut a piece of 3m protective film to put over the sansa's screen so it doesn't get scratched.
I don't have to baby the Sansa like I would an ipod classic or a cell phone. Which means I use it more. I'll put rockbox on this new one I bought.
I use mine 3-4 hours a day and haven't had any trouble with it, and I bought it refurbed.
I don't know why they didn't put AM on it too.
