Not being a computer geek but needing a simple compact music only player I went for the Sansa clip+ on “Whathifi” recommendation.
For what its worth to anyone starting with a Sansa. The manual is all about W. XP so I run W7 Home. Step by step for idiots is not the same. Beyond me to get it working with windows media player. When it comes the LCD? display it has a black! protect cover. The instructions don’t say anything whatever about it & it took a while to figure I wasn’t wrecking the equipment in getting it off (very hard) Not a good start.
I went to the website to update the firmware. It told me it needed doing, and I accepted the download. It couldn’t (wouldn’t) update the firmware from Sandisk website. It made the computer run very slow (maybe the AVG?) Finally the earphone jack on some better quality phones won’t plug in all the way, don’t even try!!. Its very vulerable and VERY filmsy especially sticking out of the side of a mobile player size of a matchbox. Its the junkest bit of an otherwise decent player. Its now loose, keeps losing contact & crackling. I put a ferule over the jack to stop it going in too far but it needs a bit of tape to keep the contact (on a brand new player!!). Certainly an area to be improved. Enjoy the music.
