Re: Clip Zip, to buy or to wait for the announcement?

Thanks for the advice guys! I've just ordered my Zip Clip and it's due for deliver 7 days from now xD

After 2 years of heavy usage, the battery on a Clip+ is probably worn out. If not, then perhaps other components have worn out. I guess these things are designed with around 2,000-4,000 hours of usable life in mind. If you get 2,000 hours of use from a $40 player that is just 2 cents per hour of use. At 4,000 hours it is only one cent per hour. Not bad at all. What is bad though is a $200 mp3 player that only lasts 1,000 hours. That cost 20 cents an hour to run.

As others have already posted, I prefer the Plus. I am in fact going to order a new one from the Sansa Store.

The clip thingy does break down after a year or so, but it's still my favorte.
