Yes

Largest card available now is 16, but I donít forsee a problem when they release a larger card, assuming they up the total number of files the fw handles.

I have the Clip, Clip+, and Fuze. The Clip+ and Fuze are both worth getting. The Fuze is nice for the larger screen, longer battery life, and scroll wheel. The Clip+ is nice for the small size and built in clip. Whichever you get, the Clip+ or Fuze, after getting it you may regret not getting the other, so it might be a good idea to get both if possible. If I could only have one, I would choose the Fuze though. Figure around 12 hours battery life for the Clip+, and around 20 hours for the Fuze. That is without using the equilizer, minimum screen brightness, and short screen time. The proprietary cable and connector on the Fuze are annoying though.

Fuze in Canada - Future Shop - was in Wal-Mart but no longer

Clip+ in Canada - new products from Sansa take months to arrive - it's promised for Christmas, but I wouldn't bet the farm on it - check Future Shop regularly

online shippers to Canada - sansa.com USED to (with reasonable shipping) - last time I checked they were US only - others either won't ship or charge an arm and a leg and your first born (as in more than the price of the player sometimes)

where in Canada are you? if you're close to a US Best Buy, then go for it

I'm in Canada and although it's not always the case I find using Ebay a good source. Price and shipping are reasonable if you can find a US retailer who sells/ships the Clip+ to Canada.

Decent idea, but the product is maybe a little new to find on eBay.

Quick search of ebay.ca (most US sellers that ship to Canada appear here) found NO Clip+. So that idea doesn't work for Paulradio YET.

I found one today. Shipping is a little steep so I guess it depends on how bad you want it..?
