SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip


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.

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.

Sansa Clip Zip: A Value iPod Alternative


When it comes to small MP3 players, the iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano are tough acts to follow. The SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip is neither as petite nor as stylish, but it has features in spades: an FM radio, a voice recorder, a workout timer, and a microSD...

Small, lightweight ; Cute LCD screen ; Includes lots of useful extras ; Compatible with DRM-free iTunes files ; Inexpensive ; Good Rhapsody integration

Multiple-source media transfers lack simplicity

SanDisk's latest competitor to the smallest iPods may not be as tiny or stylish, but it delivers a lot of features at very reasonable prices.

SanDisk Sansa Clip+


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...

Affordable; simple to use; small and lightweight; microSD expansion; long battery life

Exposed miniUSB port; lackluster styling

SanDisk's Clip is truly the people's MP3 player

SanDisk Sansa Clip+


When you have a winner, it's always better to simply tweak the formula rather than retool it completely. That's the approach SanDisk has taken with the latest addition to its budget portable media player line, the Sansa Clip+. Available in three...

Very affordable. MicroSD card slot. Robust file support. FM radio and recording. Voice recorder

SlotRadio cards are not included. Bundled USB cable is very short

A microSD slot has been added, but not a lot else has changed since the last Sansa Clip iteration. Even so, this budget MP3 player still does a lot more than the iPod shuffle—and for less.

Tiny Player Packs Features and Dead-Simple Menus


This Zippo-sized MP3 player packs as much into its small frame as possible. Four gigs of media storage, an FM tuner, voice and radio recording, a bright OLED

Plenty of features for a tiny player. Supports music-subscription services like Rhapsody. Brain-free drag-and-drop syncing — no need to learn a new, lousy software package. Bright screen. 14-hour playback time

MP3 snobs will spot your cheapo earphones from 50 paces. Plastic clip feels slightly flimsy and has a light grip

Sandisk Sansa Clip


While Apple remains the portable digital music behemoth, the competition, particularly in the budget flash player space, continues to thrive. iPod prices leave room for competitors to sweep in on the low end with less-expensive products that attempt to...

Rock-bottom price. Cute, lightweight design. Sharp OLED screen. Charges via USB

Horrible included earbuds. Cheap, plastic construction. Bundled Best Buy Music Store software is buggy

Need a dirt-cheap compact digital music player for the gym? SanDisk's bargain-basement Sansa Clip delivers quality sound and features.

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+


The Sansa Clip+ retails for $36.99 for a 4gb Black version, which is very attractive compared to other offerings on the market. This reviewer could find little to dislike about the Clip+ besides wishes for a slightly larger screen. Even despite this,...

Budget MP3 player


Reviewers love the SanDisk Sansa Clip+, a tiny MP3 player that provides big sound in a lightweight and affordable package. The Sansa Clip+ is only 2 inches tall, and it includes a wearable clip for running or the gym. Unlike the iPod shuffle, the Sansa...

Great value, small and lightweight, microSD memory card slot, fM radio

1-inch screen is hard to read, radio reception is finicky in some areas
