What customers say about "Key Specs"
SanDisk Clip Sport (SDMX22-008G-A57K) MP3 Player
  • What a great little device, did everything you could need, had a great display and was tiny.
  • Display is really sharp easy to read even in lowest brightness setting
  • The big improvement in the newer model over the older is that the internal native storage is bumped up to 8 GB, and it has a slot for a MicroSD card
  • Display is grainy, doesn't look great (personally, the display isn't too important, I just need to be able to read the song name)
  • The display is smaller, shows less info at a given time, and is harder to read.
  • This is cheaper, but it looks and feels cheaper, very poor display quality.
SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip 4GB Purple (Digital Media Players)
  • I have a 16 Gb card that is pretty full, as is the internal 4 Gb of memory. My wife has her own 4 Gb card with her favorite songs, that can be easily switched back and forth.
  • And 4 gigs of memory seems huge after living with 2 gigs for so long.
  • Is just the beginning - the memory expansion card will give me 16 gig more, should I ever need it.
  • When listening to radio, it will display the name of the station, and the name of the artist and song that is being played; and you can even record it.
  • The one issue I have is its hard to see the display in the afternoon when the sun is strong.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
SanDisk Clip Sport (SDMX22-008G-A57K) MP3 Player
  • The size of the device is good (very light) and the promised battery life is very good.
  • I really like the size
  • Small size makes for a discrete object that won't bulk up your bag or pocket.
  • I do like the small size and clip, but its very difficult to see the screen when you are outside.
  • Too small. Cheap quality. Weak little clip.
SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip 4GB Purple (Digital Media Players)
  • I enjoy the small size of the Sansa, vs larger MP3 players that are too weighty.
  • Sound is much better than you would expect for the price, and the light weight, small size, long battery life, and physical buttons all make this perfect for long sessions on the treadmill.
  • Other than the earbud connection issue I love the size for travel.
  • I love the small size. I just clip it on to my belt and off I go!
  • His only complaint is the size. He doesn't like the size-he says it's too small.

What customers say about "Features"
SanDisk Clip Sport (SDMX22-008G-A57K) MP3 Player
  • Plays a variety of formats, including Ogg Vorbis and mp3
  • Plays both WMP and MP3 file formats which are pretty much the standards.
  • It has a very wide variety of compatible media formats, but I tend to use just a couple of them.
  • Sandisk has just earned themselves a lifelong customer. I do actually love these players: they are light, clip on, have FM radio and support multiple audio formats
  • No bookmarks...less file formats...NO FAST FORWARD (ok its just useless but there...)
  • The interface is terrible, not remembering where you were when turned off and back on, not continuing to next disk in list without setting up complicated playlist, limited audiobook formats, having to push multiple buttons for simple navigation, such as moving back one screen.
SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip 4GB Purple (Digital Media Players)
  • What drew me in to this player is that it can play a lot of different formats, including flac.
  • I searched several different types of players, but settled on the Clip Zip because of the fact that it played multiple formats including FLAC, had a slot for up to 32GB of extra memory, and was reasonably priced.
  • It is a great mp3 player just convert songs before loading onto player.
  • Very compact, great sound, plays every format known to man, love it. It is just the thing for listening to music on long bicycle rides.
  • It is very easy to use. And it even comes with a voice recorder, which, as a musician, I find useful.

What customers say about "Power"
SanDisk Clip Sport (SDMX22-008G-A57K) MP3 Player
  • Internal battery holds a good charge.
  • On a full charge the battery lasts a long time. I often do a 3 hour show, twice a day and then go work out with it at the gym on a single charge.
  • Battery life is fine so far and the buttons can be locked so they don't get accidentally pushed during workouts. It also has a clip.
  • Soft power button is easily triggered in my pocket or bag, completely draining the non-changeable battery leaving me to find my device dead when I want to use it.
  • The battery drains very quickly.
SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip 4GB Purple (Digital Media Players)
  • The battery life is great, and the interface works, and there was such a low bar from the earlier version that this one is fantastic in comparison.
  • The battery life is very impressive. BUY it, you won't regret it.
  • What I really dont like is the short battery life.
  • Not only that, the battery meter is extremely inacuratte. It goes from 44 or 33% to completely dead in maybe 30 min or less.
  • I'm really disappointed in the battery life of this little player
