Re: Players with more than one card slot?

[ Edited ]

Many player makers are so obsessed with having thin anorexic players that skimp on battery life just to be a bit thinner. They may also be thinking about skimping on card slots just to be a bit thinner. Imo function is so much more important than form. It is worth having a bit more thickness to have much greater battery life and more than one card slot, as long as the player will still fit in a standard shirt pocket.

Re: Players with more than one card slot?

The only real advantage with multiple slots, that I can see, is to take advantage of the lower relative cost of lesser capacity microSD cards. However, prices really have come down on cards, with 64GB cards being readily achievable nowadays. And so I'm not quite convinced of the need for multi-slot players. However, perhaps this would be a way of getting an SSD jukebox player when the manfs. have refused to bring one out (it also prevents the obsolescence of the memory in a player, by instead relying on the removable cards which then can be used with other devices and with future releases). But, ah, is any manf. out there even listening . . . . Smiley Sad

More slots means a greater maximum capacity.

Yep, why I wrote, "perhaps this would be a way of getting an SSD jukebox player when the manfs. have refused to bring one out . . . ."

Which does SanDisk no good  since their developers haven't figured out how to manage larger database numbers....lol.

 

For example, with Rockbox you could load up a 64GB card with 64kbps mp3's  and still have database functionality in addition to folder browsing. No 8,000 song limitation there!

It is odd, isn't it?  Presumably, the SanDisk engineers could update the Clip database management system to current norms/standards easily enough (or so, one would think--but I'm no engineer).  One can't help but feel that, it simply needs some attention.

Sure we can afford the little extras in life: look at all the money we've saved by buying SanDisk Clips over i and e players . . . . Smiley Wink
