Today I received the Sansa Clip+ MP3 player for review. The Sansa Clip+ is perfect any music lover who wants an on-the-go option packed with amazing features. I received the 4GB MP3 player, but it’s also available in 2GB and 8 GB.
The 4GB unit holds up to 1,000 songs, which is more than plenty for me.. so it’s really cool for those who love to carry their music around with them. If you happen to run out of room, the Sansa Clip+ does have a microSD card slot so you can add even more memory to the player. The new microSD card slot also enables people to play slotMusic and slotRadio cards, which is an effortless option for those who want the ease of listening to variety of music with no downloading – just insert the pre-loaded card and start rockin’ out instantly.
It’s a little smaller than I had expected but that doesn’t affect it or it’s features in any way! It’s small enough it can fit in your pocket, purse or diaper bag without any trouble! There is a clip for hands-free portability so this MP3 player is easy to take with you anywhere. The battery life is great. I left the player running for several hours and the battery never went dead.. battery life is around 15 hours, according to SanDisk, so whether you’re traveling or running around all day, you’ll be able to listen to your favorite tunes!
With the Sansa Clip+ MP3 player you can download your own songs or purchase preloaded music cards, it also has a digital FM tuner and voice recording.
Getting the music from your computer to your new player is extremely easy. The Sansa Clip+ is compatible with Windows and Mac computers and doesn’t require any software to set up or to load music on it. All you do is plug the included USB cable to your computer and the Sansa Clip+ will show up like a regular flash drive. Once your computer has recognized the new device, you can start adding your music by dragging and dropping the audio files to the appropriate folders. You can also copy music to a microSD card and plug it into the Sansa Clip+.
Now the only turnoff I had was that if you have a lot of songs downloaded to your Sansa Clip+, trying to find one particular song can be time consuming because you have to scroll down to the song. With the screen being so small it may take a while to find.
