Clip Zip or Fuze+
 
I'm currently looking for a new mp3 player, and i've decided to buy a Sandisk mainly because of the good reviews.
But i don't know if i should buy the Fuze+ og wait for the Clip Zip to come out in Europe. I cant find that many good Fuze+ reviews, so I hope someone here on the abi can help me choose. between the two players.

The size doesn't really matter, but the most important thing is the sound. I mainly use FLAC and high quality mp3's on my players, and i listen to all kinds of music, but mostly Hard Rock. Another important thing for me, is to know that they player stil is supported by the developers and the user-base. I'm probably gonna install Rockbox on my player. I know a Rockbox port for the Clip Zip hasn't come out yet, but do you think it will have the same apps and games in color as the Fuze+?
Of course the player build quality is also another important thing.

So what do you guys think i should choose, and what are the biggest difference between the two players?

Fuze+ is way too buggy for everyday usage, go with the clipzip. I own both, and I vote clipzip for the WIN!

Also, if I'm correct, the clipzip is being worked on by RB, the fuze+ I'm not sure about.

Now, apps & games for the fuze+? There are no apps or games for my fuze+,... When RB gets ported to the clipzip it'll play DOOM tho,... ;)

There is a Rockbox port for the original Fuze, not the Fuze+. Same for the Clip and Clip Zip. There's work being done on a port for both the Clip Zip and Fuze+ but no one can predict how well that will work out or when it will happen.

I would buy the player that fits your current needs. As much as I think Rockbox is a great replacement firmware I wouldn't buy anything based on a port that doesn't yet exist. Stuff happens.

I concur, sound advice that said, I'd go with the clip zip just for the size but that's just my opinion. You need to do what's best for you.

Thanks for the replies. I think I will go with the Clip Zip.
