What's better than a 4GB Sansa Clip MP3 player for $34.99? Shipped! That's the deal o' the day from Buy.com.? How about a
It's a refurb, as you might expect, and the warranty probably expires after 90 days (though Buy.com's product page doesn't say for sure), but as I've noted before, there's not much that can go wrong with an MP3 player. I have absolutely no qualms about the abbreviated warranty.
In fact, I'm entirely qualm-free about this player. (Qualm-less? Sans qualms?) The Sansa Clip beats the pants off the refurbished iPod Shuffle (currently $39 for a 1GB model), offering an OLED color screen, an FM tuner, a voice recorder, and support for Audible.com audiobooks. Oh, and four times the storage.
The Clip weighs less than an ounce and measures just 2.2 inches tall by 1.3 inches wide by 0.6 inch thick. True to its name, it clips, making it an ideal companion for the gym, the track, or wherever. For more specs and impressions, check out CNET's mostly favorable review.
It's too late to pick up one of these for Mother's Day, but it might be an ideal gift for the dad and/or grad in your life. Or, you know, for yourself. You've been good, right? Splurge a little! Do it for the economy.
