Default Clip Quick Take

I got a Clip in the main a few days ago and I am currently putting it though the paces and will have a review shortly. But for now here is my quick take.

The Sansa Clip it is the same GUI and screen as the express, but the buttons are easier to press and the sound quality is much much better and as lame as it sounds, the psychical clip on the player is really great to have, its just nice to quickly snap it onto you clothing.

It still feels "cheap" or toy-like as most of the Sansa product line, but it sill is durable like the Express. For $40 and $60 you wont be disappointed, especially if you have some good IEMs. SanDisk has touted this player as the best sounding player on the market. That is a very bold statement filled with hype. I cannot say that it is the best on the market, but it does sound damn good.

Thanks for the info, EnzoTen. I'm looking forward to reading your review.

Just curious how the sound quality stacks up with the other "tiny" players on the market, like the Shuffle, Stone plus, or IRiver S10 (although it's debatable if the latter is really on the market...), or the slightly larger Nano or Zen V +.

Do you have the actual dimensions of this baby? Sandisk hasn't released this information, and the only thing we have to go on are estimates compared to golf balls or quarters...

This player stops all over the "tiny" players and runs along side of any of Cowon's players.

I will do some comparison shots with the stone and such... and i will try to get some accurate measurements.

Default How's the FM?

I am a ZVM30 user and have been looking for a 2nd DAP that is a bit smaller, for working out or jogging. It appears this may fit the bill.

However, I tried a buddy's Sansa e260 for a day, thinking that would fit the bill, but the FM reception was not good at all. FM is an option I need.

I was considering the Zen Stone Plus, but if the FM on the Clip is better, I may go with this (yeah, I like the idea of clipping it onto your clothes).

How's the FM on the Clip?

I have the regular Stone not the Plus, so I can't comment on its FM reception. However I have broken two clips for the Stone in very light usage. Both broke in exactly the same place.

Like you, I am thinking about the Sansa Clip because of the clothing clip. I just hope it is less breakable than the one that comes with the Stone's skin.
