fuze vs fuze+ vs clip or clip+

If you had it to do over again, which would you buy?  I have the Fuze and the Fuze plus and am frustrated with the Fuze plus.  My Fuze seems to be near its last legs so i want to be ready with a replacement which is why I bought the plus.  So I guess I'm buying another Fuze.  Just wondering which everyone preferred (even tho it's too late to change my order).

 

Thanks

For me, Clip+ is the best, followed by the Fuze. Even though the Clips are old, I'd still prefer one of them to a Fuze+, because I'm not fond of those touch controls on the Fuze+ (not to mention, no Rockbox) :smileywink:

Re: fuze vs fuze+ vs clip or clip+

I will probably give my fuze+ to my kid.  I am curious what other people think.  Should have done this before I bought the plus.

 

Thanks!

Re: fuze vs fuze+ vs clip or clip+

I was disappointed in the Clip+, which has less amp power than the Fuze and, even though I am apparently in the minority, an inferior sound--boosted midrange (pushing vocals way upfront) and less bass or treble, making the music sound more cramped.

 

Get another Fuze. I have a refurb that's just fine If you do get a  refurb, check out your seller first, and test it as soon as you get it to find any problems.

Re: fuze vs fuze+ vs clip or clip+

I've had 3 Fuzes, 2 Clips and 2 Clip+'s; and now a Fuze+.  BY FAR, the best of the lot is the Fuze+.  Now that I have the Fuze+, most of the time my other Sansa players go unused.  The controls work flawlessly, it sounds great and fits great in my hands.  And it does all that out of the box.  Clips (and +'s) and Fuzes can be made to be OK players with the addition of Rockbox, but even then, they are less than my favorite players.

They have the same amount of power, and they sound the same. I've got both.

The problem I'm having with the Fuze+ IS the controls.  I can't get to what I want when I want .  The regular Fuze is so much easier to use.

Have you updated the firmware? The controls may have been improved since the Fuze+ was released.

Re: fuze vs fuze+ vs clip or clip+

As far as Clip vs. Clip+, the Clip+ is much better.  I have both and three things that stand out on the Clip+, 1) the clip itself is quite robust (on the old one, you thought it would break anytime you touch it, which I did eventually), 2) the build quality is much better, and 3) having the micro SD slot is great on the +.  I also prefer the UI on the +, it seems to be more intuitive.

 

I also have the Fuse and am perfectly happy with it.  I wished it had the same UI as the Clip+, but it's not bad at all.  The other thing I dont like about it is the proprietary connector to charge it (I think this was fixed on the Fuse+).. 

 

No experience with the Fuse+ but from the reviews and comments so far, I think I'll stick to my Fuse for the time being.

4) Folder access on the Clip+, not on the Clip. 
I'm still dubious that the Clip+ has less failures, so your #2 would be mostly about the clip itself and perceived build quality, and wouldn't be accounting for failure rates.
