Beware need to also buy a plug,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SanDisk SDMX18-008G-E46K Sansa Clip+ MP3 Player - 8 GB, Black (Electronics)
As a cheap mp3 player, this works well. It was a present for my kids and they like it. It is remarkably small but is broadly functional.
The reason I only gave it 3 stars is because we couldn't persuade it to take power by usb from any computer, and when its power had expired, it wasn't visible to the pc either, as well as obviously not working at all.
The device instructions request that you contact Sansa rather than returning faulty items to the retailer. I tried contacting them, and they kept sending me advice that required the device to have power to do what they said, which ignored the nub of the problem I had.
By that time, I had bought a separate 3pin plug which allowed the device to become charged enough to operate. When I asked Sansa to at least reimburse me for the cheap plug, they refused saying it was against policy to provide any reimbursement for any problem, and eventually said I should return the device instead to Amazon. The plug has worked well and I think means that my device is functional enough not to return.
Therefore I advise all prospective purchasers to also buy the accompanying Konnect - 3 Pin USB Power Wall Plug For SanDisk Sansa Fuze 2GB, 4GB,8GB,Sansa View,E200,E250,E260,E270,E280 & New Sansa Clip MP3 Playerplug and not assume that the device will work as supplied. The plug I bought which works well is the Konnect - 3 Pin USB Power Wall Plug For SanDisk Sansa Fuze 2GB, 4GB,8GB,Sansa View,E200,E250,E260,E270,E280 & New Sansa Clip MP3 Player.
