I bought a 4GB Clip and a 2GB Clip from Sears, for unbelievably good prices. I have only just opened the 4GB Clip.
First problem - (which might not be a big problem) – it has version 1 hardware.
Second problem - (which I have not yet confirmed) – it doesn’t seem to be holding a charge. Maybe
(since it is an older, version 1 unit) the battery’s shelf-life has expired? I am continuing to check my unit.
Third problem - (which I am still investigating) - It seems to have come with some music on it. Unless this is some sort of a “sample”, it seems to me to indicate that the player was previously used.
I have tried to get some answers from SanDisk but haven’t heard from them yet. I sent one question about model numbers to them several days back, via their web form – no answer. And I emailed N. Amer. Tech Support a couple of days ago, with more questions about model numbers and firmware – haven’t heard back, but it is the wkend.
Now that I’ve discovered that the Clip isn’t holding a charge and seems to have come with music on it, I have even more questions, so I may try to email again, but so far that hasn’t gotten me any responses.
Just wanted to give potential buyers a heads up…
