IPOD KILLER is now even cheaper

Price has been yo-yo-ing for over a week

Was 39.99 then 54.99 then 40.42 then under 40 and now at the lowest I have seen it at £36.31

Delivery says it may take and additional 2 days but my player came at the usual super saver speed.

I got mine for £20. Although rear clip was slightly broken.

Not sure I'd go as far as saying it's an "ipod killer" but it's a very natty piece of kit for the money. Hotted...

Maybe it is just me but that seems a fairly strange comment, you mention something which isn't going to happen to other people and don't give an opinion on the product or this price.
It seems like a bragging comment eg,
I got it cheaper because of a problem on it which might be considered a big deal to many people.

"Not sure I'd go as far as saying it's an "ipod killer" but it's a very natty piece of kit for the money. Hotted..."
Why not, compared to the ipods most similar to it has more features for less money.

Don't be so hard on him, all he wants is a pat on the back.

can this take a 32gb micro sd?
does it have an eq or preset eq?
#7
Another question...anyone know if this is better / worse / same as the SanDisk Fuze?

Cheers

I have both and the UI on the ipods is (in my opinion) far better.

It should take a 32Gb card. Not sure about the EQ, not really tried. Probably though. Great little player - paid £48 6 months ago and well-chuffed with it!

Sansa Fuze is a video player, whereas this is dedicated to music/audio. The bonus is that this one will fit into a matchbox (I think!)

My left ear lobe is an Ipod killer.


These players are fantastic, i use one at work. 8 solid hour of playback and the battery doesn't even go down a bar

Not as good as the Fuze IMO as it is smaller and cannot pick up as many FM stations....these knock spots of the ipod.
#12
And if you update the firmware on these, make sure you select "Rest of World" for the region, selecting "Europe" will enforce the new EU volume regulations and make the thing unusable on external speakers and low on headphones.

If you select "Europe" by accident, you can just reflash it with the same Firmware and change the selection.

can this take a 32gb micro sd?

No. I think the current firmware only supports up to 16GB. Then again 32GB cards have only just been launched so perhaps they will be supported in the future. Maybe Rockbox will support them when it is finished for the Clip+.

does it have an eq or preset eq?

Yes. Just preset I think - 3 options.

I’m hoping that one day Apple focus on functionality rather than just making a UI that idiots can master. My iPod Classic has such limited functionality compared to my old Zen Xtra but the extra 100GB is a bonus.

it has some presets but you can also customise it...

Really enjoying mine, picked it up the other week when it was a couple of quid more.

Do you mean it's not as sensitive as the Fuze or it doesn't have as many preset memories? As the headphone lead acts as the FM aerial, I wouldn't have thought the size of the unit would make any difference.

I have a Fuze by the way. I wrote a program to put as much music as possible (complete albums) in the internal memory before starting on the card.

The MAXIMUM micro SD card it can take is 16GB (stated in user manual)

It has about 6 preset EQ settings (Pop, Jazz, Dance, Bass, Treble, etc) and a custom setting.

It also has replay gain if your files are tagged.

Here's the link to the User Manual and Firmware update

http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4303/session/L3NpZC9ac0Vrc1Zaag%3D%3D/sno/0

The firmware update tool you can download makes flashing it painless

Loving mine. Especially in my campervan :-D

Only "unusable" if your external speakers have low gain. And the advantage is you won't need to learn sign language. There is a reason for the regulations - the same perceived volume in headphones as on speakers can actually be 15dB higher, which is thirty times as much.

Sansa Fuze is £49.99


I can only advise you to read the reviews as I'd say not many people will have both to compare

thanks for the info - H&R

seen this vid on youtube and at 3mins the review states that it supports 32GB?

It's very likey these will take 32GB MicroSD cards since on a technical level they are no different to 4\8\16GB ones. The main crux of supporting high capacity MicroSD (and normal SD for that matter) is their ability to support the SDHC varient. All MicroSD\normal size SD card 4GB or larger are SDHC. If your player supports SDHC you shouldn't have a problem...

This obviously does support SDHC.

It's in the quick start manual that comes with the player on page 8

The Sansa Clip+ player plays Slotmusic cards, Slotradio cards, or your own content on a Sandisk microSD or microSDHC card (up to 16GB)


Maybe it was written before 32GB cards became as prevalent? It needs someone to test it. C'mon people :-)
#24
^^^^^^ wasn't trying to call you out, was just wondering if infact this could take a 32gb (tested by others - even if the manual says otherwise) and if yes I would order
#25
I'm not saying you are ;-)

Read the review HERE (his 2nd review) where the user claims the player has a problem with a 16gb card

He seems the only reviewer to have a problem but I cannot say if he's right as I only have an 8gb card in mine :thumbsup:

EDIT: On reading the review myself he seems to only have problems because he's loaded over 20,000 small ogg vorbis files (the smart ****)

This player's nearest iPod competitor is the shuffle, which doesn't even have a screen.

If you were to compare the UI of the Sansa Fuze to the iPod Nano then fair enough but that isn't what we're talking about here...
#27
Heat added. Anyone know where is the cheapest place for microSD cards?
suspended#28
This is an ipod killer, in audio quality/price/features... maybe UI it can lose but thats personal preference.

The audio quality is the same as the Fuze, it uses the exact same sound chip its just that the fuze has a better means of video playback and i love the mechanicle wheel :D.

It can take 32gb, im 99% sure the reason 16gb is listed as max is because that was the maxium available at the time of printing. This played clearly copes with a 32gb SD card used in conjection with a sd to micro sd adaptor so the design is pretty similar and shouldnt have a problem.


I also had the original 4gb sansa clip, great piece of kit but there were still a few minor things i wanted changing... the Sansa clip+ brings those changes for me, expansion port so cheap music storage/player and also they removed the cheap sounding click wheel!. Shame about the removable clip as i liked it very very small, however even with it included it fits perfectly so no real complaint.

Any questions regarding the Fuze/Clip/Clip+ please ask i have owned all of these :).

Votede hot.
#29
^^^^^^^ how many bands has the custom eq have? (guessing that you can adjust the individual value of bass, middle, treble, etc)
#30
don't say "ipod killer", you're just giving that even more publicity. just say "the best small mp3 player ever made", which it is :)
and the main reason for that is, if you lose/run it over, you can afford to buy another one -
unless you are actually rich and you care more about the gadget than the music, in which case keep throwing your money to apple.. (yeah, flamebait, whatever, it just annoys me to see families who can't afford it giving their kids ipods (which they then lose/have nicked) when there are better alternatives like this).
as far as ui goes.. if it lets you get to your music quickly, what more do you need. the only problem is if someone is far sighted they might find this too small, but then the best solution to that is a bigger player like a fuze with rockbox custom ui).
rant over, good deal.. still waiting for £30 :p

Ditto m8.......I've snagged one for a spot of jogging etc....so need to load my collection onto it...8gb is fine for now, but when hols approach (ash cloud :x) I'm gonna need a bigger capacity.
Also probably a stupid question but this does has shuffle option doesn't it?

Cheers :thumbsup:

It has 11 presets including a "Custom". On mine, they are:

* Normal
* Rock
* Pop
* Jazz
* Classical
* Funk
* Hip Hop
* Dance
* Full bass
* Full Treble
* Custom

Perfect for the gym with the built in clip. Used a 2gb clip for last couple of years but upgraded to this model last week from currys, £29.97.
I do remember reading a review a while back that proved the actual output quality was slighty better than an ipod nano. I brought it originally on the size and weight (you don't even notice it clipped on) and I also don't really see the need to look at album art of a song I'm listening too. :p

BTW: ditch the standard earphones and get a set of sennheisers.

Wouldn't a 8GB card have been a lot less? Or doesn't the old Clip have a micro-SD slot?

^ was a wild guess, even though my clip was sat right in front of me if I wasn't too lazy to check :-D

Currys WERE selling these for £29.97 about a month ago and as ever with Currys it was not for delivery only instore and stores sold out quickly with the usual couple of hundred customers finding the clip they reserved did not exist (like me). Currys reserve system is crap
