Sandisk 8GB Sansa Clip MP3 Player with Radio - Black
After replacing my Creative Zen V+ with a cheap supermarket branded mp3 player on a temp basis, I was looking for something a bit better on a more permanent basis. I found the Creative Zen absolutely amazing and didn't really want to part with it, but I needed something with a little more memory at a decent price. After reading various reviews I ended up going for the Sansa Clip 8GB because it seemed simple to use with a decent amount of memory for what I needed.
After receiving it I immediately unpackaged it and plugged it in to charge but found that there was no response from either the computer or the player. I tried it on 4 different computers to no avail and even followed the steps on the help section of Sansa's website. Embarassingly enough it turned out that the USB connector was a little stiff and although it first appears to be connected, it does benefit from a firm wiggle to get it completely in place. Problem solved!
I almost ended up sending it back in frustration but I'm glad I didn't because this had been an amazing little mp3 player. Goes up to a half-decent volume and the battery lasts a lot longer than I thought. Definitely read this before attempting to send it back if you have connection issues because it might be something so simple as the connection!
