I finally have my new Clip+ and I can attest, it is a sweet one. I had to settle for the 4GB instead of the desired 8GB version. But a 16GB card will provide adequate storage when I can obtain one. Right now I am using FLAC on an 8GB card I pulled from my Fuze and OGG@350 Kb/s files on the internal memory in order to get all of my music on it.
I opted for the black one. I have a black 1st gen Clip and that shade has grown on me. Functionally this new Clip+ seems swifter and more refined in the interface. It still uses the press-once UI I love too. I like the square pad more than the round one also.
