SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip
-Hey, I'm Donald Bell and today we're taking a first look at the Sansa Clip Zip.
This is a super compact, super affordable MP3 player from SanDisk that's available in 7 different colors and 2 capacities.
It's a 4 gigabyte version that will set you back just $49 and 8 gigabyte model runs $69.
Now, the basic design of the Sansa Clip hasn't changed a whole lot since the Clip+ we saw last year.
You navigate using the direction part at front.
It has a headphone jack and a MicroSD card slot here on the side power button on the top and a volume control and USB port over here.
Of course, the main appeal here is the clip on the back, which makes it perfect for working out.
The construction is all plastic, but so is just everything else in this price range.
As far as features go, you got music playback, FM radio, audio book and podcast support, voice recording and a basic stop watch.
The clip zip is both Mac and PC compatible, works with MP3, AAC, WMA, FLAC,
and even subscription music services like rhapsody.
Battery life is rated about 15 hours.
All in all is an easy MP3 player to recommend.
It's one of the best value you will find under $50 and arguably one of the best under $100.
It's not as tiny as Apple's Nano or shuffle, but it's as like to get lost or run to the laundry either.
So, that's the Sansa Clip Zip, the perfect practically disposable MP3 player for the gym or those times we just don't wanna put your smartphone in harm's way.
