A question before I make a purchase of one of these. I have fried 3 Clip Zips by sweating in the past. I typically attach it to my tank top strap since it's the most convenient, but get a little bit of sweat in it and it dies. They last about 3-4 months before putting it in a bag full of rice no longer brings it back to life. Overall, very disappointed in these things, but it's one of the only ones that can run Rockbox.
Am I going to experience the same thing with the Clip Sport, or are they actually sweat resistant this time? I would assume something made for sports would be sweat resistant, but I made this mistake when purchasing the Clip Zip.

No. It took me a couple of MP3 players to figure it out. Sweat (not rain) craps it out. When my SanDisk Sport Clip (oh, what a moronic oxymoron) goes through the slow death with various things (freezes, needs reset, etc.), I purchase a new one and return it with the old one in the box. Voila! Warranty! At this point, I am going to purchase an Agpteck that has a silicon, sweatproof case for $25 and hope it works. I'm tired of the SanDisk. The old ones were great when they were metal.
