Anyone test the 32gb microsd?

I'm curious about how long it takes to load music (refresh database).

I found a topram class 4 32gb microsd for $120 and a sandisk class 2, I'm planning on buying soon.

Why would you, when you could get four 16GB cards for that amount of money? Smiley Wink

Having a 60GB hard drive player, it's nice having all the memory in one location.  Although that price ($120) is dear.

 

This brings to mind, though, why flash super-high capacity players aren't coming out.  String 8 16GB cards together, and you have a nifty 128GB player, for the memory retail cost of $240.

Or at least put the cheap 16gb chip onboard the Clip+ for less than $10 more then retail price of the 8gb Clip+ (2gb Clip+ for $33 plus a 16gb microsd for $29 -- both retail prices). There's no reason why we shouldn't be able to have a 32gb Clip+ (16gb+16gb) for around $100. Quite simply, with the 2gb version at about $33, with memory prices as they are it's a Sansa ripoff to sell the 8gb version for $55+. Evidently, there's a huge sucker-driven demand however, because the 8gb Clip+ has actually risen in price over the past couple of months... </rant>

 

I finally gave up waiting for a 16gb Clip+ and got a 2gb unit just for the form factor. I refused to pay an additional ~$25 for a measly 6gb more onboard -- I can spend that on a 16gb microsd and have 18gb total.

 

...Adding, the irony is that if Sansa had actually come out with a 16gb Clip+ priced at around $80-$90, I'd have bit and they would've extracted an extra $50 from me, most of that pure profit -- indeed, more in added pure profit than they got from me in total for the 2gb unit. Instead, all they got was the equivalent of a large pizza and pitcher of beer. They're marketing geniuses I tell ya...

That's a good point....I never thought of that. Makes me glad that the one 8GB model I have was free, and the other 8GB model that's coming in the mail for me was free, too.Smiley Tongue

How can I get in of your free gravytrain? Or is free the new Sansa profit maximization plan...?

I had one friend that was sick of the databse refresh time, beofre rockbox was being worked on, and another that wasn't happy with the battery life. And I guess I'm just a nice guy!Smiley Very Happy

I have the sandisk class 2 32gb card but can't comment on refresh times as I'm using rockbox. I'm not one for swapping cards, and to me it was worth the money.

I have no refresh database issue anymore with my V1 Fuze Smiley Very Happy , but it still sucks with the Clip+ Smiley Sad.Of course, I only have 16GB cards....I shudder to imagine what the refresh would be with a 32GB.

I thought you were switching to rockbox on the clip+ ?  Or on one of them, at least.

 

I am the only person that soft resets to avoid the db refresh after using the OF for USB?  Because I'm starting to feel like I might be, from the last few posts that I read about it (admittedly I don't read that many posts atm).
