- Fuze. That’s functionally a big Clip+. Problem solved, no?
- Let’s say you don’t like the Fuze as a Clip+ “correction.” You just want a bigger Clip+. So despite others loving the Clip+ exactly for its small size, you want us to have no such choice, and that market to be crushed?
As far as I am concerned, the only thing the Fuze has over the Clip+ is battery life and the color screen (for the album art lovers) . But I vastly prefer the buttons of the Clip+ over the Fuze’s scrollwheel. I was hoping the Fuze+ would end up being a bigger Clip+, at least control-wise. However, I have two of each, Fuze and Clip+, and with Rockbox to unleash their capabilities a little more, I have uses for all four players. Will that change when I get a Touch? Perhaps…that might be the time to sell one of the Fuzes.
I am not a “Fuze-basher” per se…the Fuze was my first ever MP3 player, and a great way to get into the hobby…(manual? I don’t need no steenking manual with this thing). :stuck_out_tongue: When the Clip+ hit the scene,though, I was definitely over the scrollwheel, at least for on-the-go use. Now, I use my V1 Fuze as a source hooked to powered computer speakers at work…set it to shuffle all and it’s good to go…and the V2 Fuze for bedtime listening with my Grados. Everywhere else, I use the Clip+'s.
