After posting on here and asking questions about the Sansa Jam and having no response I took the plunge and bought a Jam and to be honest it is a real letdown. Yes it plays MP3 files but it is so very limited regards functionality compared to the Clip+.
Where is the play genre function gone? Now my friend who is used to using my Clip+ is stuck only playing a single artist, album or song, gone is the much better genre function, I have spent many, many hours tagging my music files, playing by genre was really, really useful, if you selected Metal then shuffle you had many artists and albums, if you wanted easy listening because you were in a mellow mood select that genre.
Why on earth Sansa decided to discontinue the Clip+ is a mystery to me, the Jam is a real backwards step and I am now looking elsewhere for another music player for myself, would not have been so bad had the Jam followed the functions of the Clip but as it is even Rockbox don’t seem to want to touch it.
My advice is if you have never seen a Clip+ buy the Jam, if you have then forget it, the Jam is next to useless.
