True, but it remains a fine player, even 2 and a half years later.

But that's without the alleged 25-hour battery and improved screen.
Fixed that for 'ya . . . and the screen is claimed to be larger, but not any bettter.
Time will tell.

Yep. But could be and ahould be better and improved and modernized at this point, if only SanDisk would pay attention to it.

Long time sandisk user. I am on my 3rd Fuze V1 and have had several of the Clips. The earphone jack and clip on my wife's clip broke so like some others, we went to Best Buy to get a new one. She didn't want an Ipod and we saw the Sport and bought two of the 8gb versions. I have to say, that I am quite dissapointed in it after a week of use. I rockboxed one of my old Fuzes so I could use it instead of the brand new Sport. The biggest disappointment is the fact that the internal memory and the card slot are separate in the database. It has frustrated my wife greatly. I am thinking of putting it away till they come up with a firmware fix or a rockbox solution. Seems to me, that if somebody can get the bin file for the sport, that rockbox would be a simple fix as they already have working ports on the clip+ and Zip, which this sport is based on.

This was by design in this model. Do you like the increased battery play time (25 hrs.)? It's a trade-off. I believe this is (at least partially) how SanDisk was able to squeeze extra play time out of it, by not being able to switch automatically between internal and external memory locations. This is especially relevant when you when you consider it has the same size battery but also has a larger LCD screen.
You want complete integration bewtween the 2 memory locations? Buy a Clip+ or Zip.

Separting the internal and external memory has no impact on battery life. The difference in battery life is them updating to a newer processor that is a little bit more power efficient than the somewhat older AMS chip in the Zip.

At the anythingbutipod.com forum, a new Clip Sport user reported that after playing an audiobook for 24 hours, the Sport showed that its battery was still 1/3rd charged.
Time has told.
