4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the older models, but still a bargain., 12 April 2014
This review is from: SanDisk SDMX24-008G-G46K Clip Sport MP3 Player - 8 GB, Black (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've a SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 8GB MP3 Player with Radio and Expandable MicroSD/SDHC Slot - Black which is excellent, simple to use, light and strong and I love it, so it's hugely disappointing to get this new version and find that it's just not as good. The screen is poor quality, there's no 'lock' button so it's annoying to use on the move and it just doesn't have the same quality feel as the old one. It also insists on putting your music on in alphabetical order. The colour screen is not good enough to show cover art and the screen isn't high quality enough to really make it comfortable to read. The old one has a simple, bright two-colour display that is far better.

I find myself using my old Sansa rather than this one. It might not have a colour screen but apart from that, it's better in every way. Go for the older model.

All that aside - it's still a bargain for what you get. Sound quality is great, easy to use, no DRM rubbish or itunes nonsense (just drag and drop files like a memory stick) and cheap enough that you won't be too upset if you leave it on the train. Depsite me sounding down on it, it would still be second choice if I was buying again - my first being the older model.

Is there a lock button on the Zip+? I don't remember one.
