Clip broken again, what's a good reliable alternative?

I got a clipv2 say 1-1,5 year ago, which suddenly stopped working, I wasn't able to turn it on anymore and the reset procedures did not work. So I got a clip+, which worked fine for half and year after which the headphone jack solder connection (left channel) failed. I was able to fix this, but this lasted only a couple of months, before it failed again. In the mean time for an unknown reason I got the clipv2 to turn again, weird. Although I do like the clips, considering the poor reliability, I'm hesitant to get me another clip. What are similar small, but more reliable players?

Sometimes the reset procedure doesn't work on the Clip players. In that case if you let the player sit for a couple days it'll reboot automatically when the battery gets below a certain level (usually takes about 2-3 days). Probably why your clip worked again when you picked it up a year later.
