Highly recommended - you can now Rockbox the Clip+ - if you thought the sound was good before its fantastic through Rockbox. The build is now stable and is excellent.

Rockbox is free firmware that gives a different operating system for MP3 players - you have both the original firmware and Rockbox on the same player. Rockbox takes the sound to a different level again and you can change it to suit your needs.

yup have to agree, bought one for my gf and she loves it! solid little player :thumbsup:

Highly recommended. I picked one up for £29.97 at PCW but even at this price it's a good deal.
#7
If anyone is thinking of getting one...just get it!

I bought one when they were £35.50 on amazon about a month ago and it's awesome for when your running!

Same here, got it a few weeks ago at £35.50 and to tell the truth, I would have bought it at a much higher price, it's a great little thing! I got a 8Gb micro-sd for a tenner, so for under £50 you can have a 16Gb "drag and drop" MP3 player that's tiny and has a great battery life!

Still a great deal so heat added!
#9
Got the 2GB version and it's a very good player indeed. The only pity is that the 8GB doesn't come in tarty red.

H & R added.

iwe got one of these for our lad at Christmas - and its great - fab deal too at this price

I need an MP3 for my car. I am not sure which has a better sound, this one or the sony x-1050 which is for £139.99 from argos ebay outlet.

I only want good sound, all other features are useless for me in the car.

Sansa clip owners

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that uses his sansa clip with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This mp3 player shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That bought a sansa clip on this day.

The installation is really complicated, wants you to compile stuff, find stuff from all over the net. I've got a headache just looking at it!

No need to compile anything and no need to find anything on the net. You can use the supplied files, you can use the rockbox installer or you can do it manually:

Copy rockbox onto the player, install bootloader and off you go. If you want to make rockbox look better you can install some wps.

If you have a small amount of computer knowledge/experience you will be fine.

RX is far from stable on the Clip+ though, still considered unusable. It is usable IMO, but hardly as reliable as the more mature rockbox ports.

I installed this and its a minute job - 30 seconds downloading and unzipping, 30 seconds copying two files over to the Clip.
Here's an easy installation guide-

Make sure your Clip is in MSC mode - Settings/System Settings/USB Mode/MSC
1) Copy two files - a bootloader and either the latest build or if you want a LOUD build download the file from Mediafire

http://www.mediafire.com/?zd5o1ltazuj

2) Unzip the 2 files - the bootloader and whichever Rockbox build you chose.
You'll have a bin file from the bootloader - copy to root directory of Clip
Copy unzipped .Rockbox folder from Build to Clip

3) Now unplug the Clip from the computer and the bootloader will load Rockbox for you.

For those of you where 8Gb is more than enough storage - the Sansa Clip 8Gb is £29.99 at dvd.co.uk (not expandable memory like the Sansa Clip+ posted here)

You say that you have both firmwares on the same player. Well i just installed RockBox and now my sansa is not comming up on my computer (i'm using ubuntu). It was working fine before, so how do i go to the OF?

Power off - Hold both Power on and left button (<<) together and it will go to original Sansa software. Be aware that you need to go through Sansa software at present to load music - Rockbox still to have a USB connect for Clip+.

Read the Rockbox manual to find all the workings.
http://www.rockbox.org/manual.shtml
#26
Aha, thanks, just found out myself before reading this.
Yep, so the only way to add music is to go back to the OF, add it this way, then go back to RockBox?
Also when i put the rockbox folder onto the sansa root the folder went invisible/hidden - it still upgraded though, pretty weird...

Yes - the root directory on the Clip is visible if you boot into Sansa firmware and connect then.
If you've any more questions can I suggest you look at the thread I linked to on anything but Ipod - its just folks will get a little sore if this thread goes off topic.

To answer another comment - Rockbox is usable and has just been posted to main page on Rockbox site for the Clip+ in the past couple of days - seems the USB connect is still being worked on.

Aha thanks... one LAST question. Can i lock the sansa on Rockbox when its playing as holding the home button doesn't function the same?
Sorry!:p

There is a mic built into it, the back, just above the clip.

Hi

Please could somebody answer this

I need an MP3 for my car. I am not sure which has a better sound, this one or the sony x-1050 which is for £139.99 from argos ebay outlet.

I only want good sound, all other features are useless for me in the car.
#33
In the car I think you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference, this is also £100 cheaper!
#34
The sound quality is excellent. Great price. HEAT. Oh yeah, plus Rockbox if you want it.

To be honest, i've not noticed any sound quality improvement with RB. What features are people with RB using that aren't available with the original firmware?

I'll second that. The sound on the new Sansa firmware is much improved anyway. And you lose resume-on-playback on the Rockbox firmware. I just wanted to do it, because I could :) But, I have gone back to the Sansa firmware now, the screen is easier to read also.

Ah god, resume on playback was annoying the hell out of me. Wasted all my battery once as it didnt auto shut off after i'd just charged it lol, was not happy.

Crossfade, Crossfeed, Cue file support, larger number of formats supported and how configurable it is are the main ones for me, but everyone has different requirements.

It is "usable", but it's very buggy, which is why it is listed on the rx mainpage as unusable:

Unusable ports
Work has begun on porting Rockbox to these players, but much remains before they are usable:
* Cowon iAudio 7, Creative ZVM, Logik Dax, Meizu M6 and M3
Philips GoGear HDD1600, HDD1800, HDD6300 and SA9200, Onda VX747 and VX767,
Tatung Elio TPJ1022, Sandisk Sansa m200, c100, c200v2, clipv2, clip+, and fuzev2
MPIO HD200

Personally I'd put it in the unstable category, along with the nano 2g. I also run it on my cowon x5, which is an incredibly stable port.

I'd use it over the OF even in its current state.

Rockbox allows resume-playback/bookmarking. You don't lose anything, but gain lots.

If you find the screen hard to read then use a different theme or make your own (as none of the current ones are very appealing imo - but then neither is the clips screen :/ ).
