I just received my Sana Clip Zip; charged it, synced songs to SD Card and Internal…so far so good.
BUT the battery indicator is terrible compared to the Sansa Clip + I had. PLEASE do a firmware
update to make it as bright as it was on the other models (yellow was goo)
…I don’t even see the “green” indicated in the user manual….and it’s not just for little old ladies
with bad eyesight, a young friend of ** mine with 20/20 vision totally agrees with the lack of**
readability of the battery indicator.
Also, could someone tells me how to set the time. I could not find the instructions.
For those of you who plan to buy a better set of earphones. I first tried a better set I was
using with Sansa Clip + but I could see that the plug would not go all the way in, as
it did with my other Sansa, so I did not try to force it in and I am just using the earplugs
I got with the Clip zip. The same thing is true with the USB Cable–the plug which goes
into the device. I had one which I used with no trouble–and it was quite a bit longer–
but once again it did not seem to plug effortlessly into the device, and I did not
"push it," so I am using the rinky-dinky one which comes with the Clip Zip. Overall
the earphones are doing fine, decent sound though it could be better.
I pray this Sansa will last longer that the other two I had–and I took good care of them.
It’s funny about this allegiance to Sensa. As others I really like what it offers, the
music is fine, it’s clippable, etc. and I would not spend the money for an iPod.
But there are issues–the first one would not turn on after a while, the second one
less than a year old stopped “turning on” and has other problems.
I did try to get a new one (didn’t do anything about the first one) but they sent me
a refurbished one and though the power ** switch problem was corrected, but there**
were others I did not have before.
Wish me luck with this one–I am not going to read all the problems others have
had in order to avoid a self-fulfilling prophecy. Just hope it will work well and for
longer than the others since I do like most of the features.
