i meant to say that i’ve been offered a new unused ‘older’ version (non plus)
4 gb for $35…not the new plus version
Personally, I prefer the styling of the original Clip–I like the circular wheel and lighting effects.
Having said that, the Clip+ has: a sturdier build, including clip; the microSD slot, for expansion; and improved firmware (a faster screen scroll, more track info., and folder navigation!).
But some other important points: the Clip+ presumably will get future firmware support from SanDisk; the original Clip, limited if any more. Furthermore, the 4 gb Clip+ can be purchased at Best Buy right now for around $40. If you had a choice of that or an original Clip for only $5 less, the Clip+ looks very attractive.
