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.

SanDisk Sansa Clip+ ( 8GB, black)


Flash memory and device manufacturer SanDisk clearly has a thorough understanding of the saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." We sure are pleased about that, because when the company decided to update its extremely popular Sansa Clip, it could...

The SanDisk Sansa Clip+ is very inexpensive; it has a solid, pocket-friendly design with dedicated volume controls and a built-in belt-clip; it's easy to use; and it offers a plethora of handy features, including a MicroSD card slot, Rhapsody DNA, a...

The SanDisk Sansa Clip+ could stand to have better battery life and support for AAC; the monochrome display is small and may be hard for some to read.

The SanDisk Sansa Clip+ is an excellent successor to the line, offering a fitness-friendly design with a built-in belt-clip, a simple interface, solid sound quality, and plenty of handy features--all for an ultralow price. It's an unbeatable value.

Review: SanDisk Sansa Clip


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,...

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 review


Editors' note: The rating of this product has increased to reflect significant enhancements offered by a firmware update. Find out more information here .

The SanDisk Sansa Clip offers impressive sound quality; an ultracompact, gym-friendly design with a removable belt clip; and useful features such as an FM radio and Rhapsody DNA integration. The player also includes support for a wide variety of audio...

FM radio reception isn't great and connection of the Clip with Rhapsody was problematic.

The SanDisk Sansa Clip is an incredible value that's set to edge out the competition with a user-friendly interface, gym-worthy design, and great sound quality.

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

A couple of months with SanDisk's Sansa Clip+ MP3 player


My disdain for the latest iPod shuffle is no secret. The Shuffle is a perfect example of Apple's obsession with form over function: a conscious decision to sacrifice useful and what some might classify as essential features in the name of producing...
