SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip

 

The SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip is a solid budget MP3 player, small enough to clip to a shirt and sturdy enough to survive your workouts. And it offers much more than the same-price iPod shuffle.

Inexpensive, especially for 8GB of storage. 1.1-inch screen makes navigation easy and displays album art. Easy to set up and use. Storage is expandable. FM radio and Rhapsody integration.

Slow to boot up. Bundled earbuds are poor quality and uncomfortable.

SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip

The ; is an audio Swiss Army Knife that plays most audio formats, works with audiobook and subscription music services, can be used as a voice recorder, and tunes in to FM radio--all for under $50.

You get what you pay for in terms of construction quality.

SanDisk's tongue-twister of an MP3 player is a stupefying value and its practical clip-on design is perfect for the gym.

SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip (teal, 4GB)

 

SanDisk's Sansa Clip players have long topped CNET's lists of affordable and gym-worthy MP3 players. The latest spin on the Clip formula is called the Clip Zip. Like 2009's Sansa Clip+ , the Clip Zip has a starting price of $49 for 4GB or $69 for an...

SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip MP3 Player | A Low-Cost Music Player Review

 

Somehow, I can't help comparing it to the iPod nano, its de facto main competitor in the MP3 player field.

Adequate MP3 player ; Has a lot of high-end features ; Has an FM tuner and a stopwatch feature ; 15-hour battery life

Takes some time to boot up ; Doesn’t auto-scan FM stations ; Has a crappy pair of earphones included ; Menu takes more key presses than necessary

It’s an adequate, eminently portable MP3 player, and comes with some extras like a color screen, an FM tuner and a stopwatch. For its price, you could say the SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip is the poor man’s iPod nano, with most of the features that are...

SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip & Fuze+ Audio Players Review

 

The smartphone might have taken over the bulk of our digital lives, but there's still room for the dedicated audio player, be it for working out or just wanting a convenient option. SanDisk has long offered some of the better, easier-to-use players...

In the intro I mentioned that both Apple and SanDisk had different approaches to their respective players, and as far as personal taste goes, I much prefer SanDisk's. While an iPod or similar device requires iTunes, which is neither lightweight or...

SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip (4GB)

 

The ubiquity of Apple's iPod and the rise of the smartphone have done much to temper what was once a crowded dedicated portable music player market. These days, the draw of devices that can do almost anything there's an app for makes a new device that...

MicroSD card slot ; Excellent sound ; Twice the storage space of comparable iPod Shuffle ; Unprotected AAC iTunes support

Low-res color screen doesn't do justice to cover art

While we question the usefulness of the added color screen, the Sansa Clip Zip is a smart iPod Shuffle alternative, with gym-friendly features and support for unprotected iTunes files.

SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip

 

A small, low-cost music player with an iPod nano-style clip.

Good format support ; Great value ; Expandable memory

Excessive volume limiting in EU mode ; Low-res screen ; Slightly cheap-feeling ; Some bugs ; Poor EQ ; Mediocre battery life

Further research suggested this was a problem with the Clip Zip's approach to ID3 tags, which store information such as artist and genre. Like the so-so build and basic screen, it's a reminder that this is a budget player that requires a little more...

Sandisk Sansa Clip Zip 4GB

 

Small, well-specified, FM radio is useful on a product such as this, easy to use

The sound is merely average, feels cheap, doesn’t go very loud

The Clip Zip looks good on paper but fails to deliver fully in practice

Sandisk Sansa Clip Zip 8GB review

 

This latest incarnation of Sandisk's Sansa Clip adds a full colour screen to our favourite budget MP3 player. Below it are six buttons for navigation and selection. There are volume buttons on the side and a power and locking key at the top. The whole...

Despite its mediocre battery life, this tiny MP3 player is a great budget option
