This Sansa Clip 2GB has been great, I have only had it for 3 days now but it is by far superior to my iPod Shuffle. I love having a screen, it is very clear/bright and the user interface is very friendly to use). During my research I ran across 2 Sansa Clip 2GB’s in the black color (both with different model #'s). I got mine for $28 on Newegg, it had an instant $22 off at checkout with my coupon code and free shipping (took 4 days instead of the guaranteed 3, but I don’t blame e=.
I emailed the Sansa customer support the following:
I am looking to purchase either a 2GB or 4GB SanDisk Sansa Clip. I have been comparing them on the internet to some other devices like the iPod Shuffle and the Sony which has a 1.6" screen. The Clip seems to offer a lot of features and quality for my money. While the 1.6" screen on the Sony is nice, that is not a deal breaker for me so long as the interface is user friendly and easy to read. I have come across what appears to be the same product with 2 different model numbers. I read some customer reviews and they say one is the “upgraded version” with a brighter display and a faster responding user interface. I am wanting to know if this is true and if so which one is the newest model.
SDMX11R-002GK-A57 and SDMX11R-2048K-A70 :both models are black and show 2GB of storage.
