The same price on Amazon too.
Good little MP3 player this, bought mine about a year ago for around £50 so this is a good price, heat added. The expandable microSDTM/microSDHCTM memory card slot is a good feature.
These are fab players, especially great if you listen to podcasts/audiobooks as they hold your place even if you change over to music or shut off.

Thanks for this OP. Voted hot and ordered.
Fantastic device - why buy a shuffle when you can get this (plus has a fairly usable screen). I love mine, especially with the RockBox firmware (has an awesome EQ).

EDIT - also, expandable memory! buy another memory card for £10-£20 to double the size...

Great little player, until it breaks. Mine lasted exactly 12 months.
Good player, but you need to learn about tagging MP3s to get the best out of it.
Mine sometimes import all over the place.

Can't get Rockbox to work well either. Doesn't recognise any of my music

I got rockbox to work perfectly, no problems at all. Brilliant little player
Used mine almost daily for the past 18 months or so. Love it.
A good litIe player, I bought mine 9 month ago at £40 with an extra 8gb card.

I also installed RockBox firmware as mentioned above.

rockbox.org


I have just been really unlucky as I have just had two 8GB versions completely die on me on first use within 20-30 minutes, despite full charge and updated firmware. Tried Sandisk suggested recoveries but no joy at all. Never had a problem with my old Nano so very strange. Great Amazon CS so I will get a refund and will look elsewhere. Its a shame as they look great players for the price.

Heat added for the price!

It doesn't recognise my MP3s and I have no idea why
Cheers for this. Have been looking for a little mp3 player to take to the gym for quite a while. Can't really go wrong at that price.

Have some heat.
Got this a few months ago. Really happy with it. Plays FLAC files too. Also no need for crappy iTunes software.
Zip
The player's new 1.1-inch LCD color screen offers 83 percent more viewing area than previous models.

So the clip's display is under 1" !

This is the main feature I can't do without, it's impossible to do without if you're into podcasts.

One negative about this player is that the battery percentage is usually off, the first 75% you can barely see the battery icon going down, after that it's a freefall to 0%. Sometimes you end up with no juice left even though it looked like you had enough for a day.

Rockbox fixes this, but for me is impossible to use because it doesn't start where you left off on podcasts all the time. Plus you can just tell it's made by hardcore audiophiles with literally no regards for interface. A babillion options, but navigating through the menus is a nightmare.
Excellent player - easy to use.
I have this, truly excellent player. Plays FLAC which is is perfect 1:1 rather than MP3 and battery life is awesome, Also has a card slot, recommended!
On amazon now at the same price

That has already been duley noted, if you look at title.
Great price for a good player.

Mine crashes pretty regularly though, anyone else have the same problem?
This has been my gym mp3 player for almost a year now and it's still going strong. Very good audio quality and I only need to charge it once every 2-3 weeks.

Recommended as a secondary player because you won't be too heartbroken about if it gets lost or broken
FLAC Files are a must very useful function

Great little player

had mine for six months now Cant Recommend this Enough

Had mine for a couple of months, not crashed once using flac. You can update the firmware, maybe worth a try otherwise prob best looking into a replacement.

Never had mine crash. As rockytrainingmontage62 suggested upgrading to the latest firmware might help.

Other thoughts are you may have a corrupt MP3 or file encoded in a certain way that causes the player to crash. Or maybe you could try formatting it and reloading media

I bought one of these god knows how long ago, rockbox is on it, radio works now for rockbox, and it's great. .. but the screen is only rated for like 2000 hours and now mine has a screen that only comes on sometimes, very hit and miss.

still I would recommend this for this price. Anyone else have the screen go dodgy though?
Purchased this sometime ago - great little item, sound quality is good too.

hmm not bad for the money but this is just too much of a bargain, that's costing over 50% more for what? A slightly better screen that still looks a bit crap..

Anyone that has installed RockBox, could you tell me why please? The RockBox site doesn't sell itself well as far as I can see. This already supports various media types straight out of the box and has a nice simple interface so i'm curious as to why you'd change it.
Good player, especially with Rockbox.

My clip hinge went after 14 months. Currently waiting for a replacement from Sandisk.


More money spent!
@neon123 I have Rockbox on almost precisely because it's podcast support works just as I want it.

What is it you find lacking?

Mine did too, but I actually prefer it missing since I never used it, and now it's the MP3 is much slimmer!
Just the thing every portable music player should have, doom!
I'm onto my second one of these in 3 years and have been very impressed. For me, my MP3 player is all about sound quality; I couldn't give a monkeys about displays and user interfacs (you listen to music, you don't look at it!).

One of the best things it offers is folder-based storage, so you don't need to mess about with tagging, which I've always found a complete pain in the ****. Simply store all your Genesis songs (for example) in a folder called "Genesis" with a subfolder for each album, and you don't need to bother with any of that playlists or tagging stuff!. Great!
I was wondering whether its suitable for recording lectures. Also can i edit descriptions on the player or only on a computer, thanks

Better to store your Genesis songs in a folder called "Recycle Bin"

If you’re happy with the standard firmware then there’s no reason to change, but there are quite a few Rockbox features that I think make it significantly superior:

Gapless playback was Rockbox's main selling point for me. I hate having little pauses between tracks that are meant to blend seamlessly together.

Rockbox allows playlists to be created and modified on the fly. This is much more versatile than the standard firmware’s single list.

Refreshing the database is much faster and happens in the background rather than taking over the player. If I add or remove music from my Rockboxed Clip I don't have to wait for several minutes before I can listen to music after disconnecting it.

I get around 1.5-2 hours extra battery life with Rockbox, 13.5-14 hours rather than around 12. Rockbox’s battery meter is also much more accurate.

The interface offers a variety of themes and can be heavily customized to display the information how I want it. I like having extra information (such as the next track on the playlist) displayed on the While Playing screen, and I use a smaller font in playlists, allowing more lines to be displayed on the Clip’s little screen.

The database can be browsed by the Album Artist tag, rather than just by Artist. I have a lot of compilations with just one or two tracks per artist. On the Sansa firmware they each get an entry as a separate artist, while in Rockbox they’re all listed under “various” and I have a much shorter list to scroll through.

Then there’s the advanced equalizer and all the other sound settings. For a lot of people they're the main reason to use Rockbox, but this comment is already long enough without trying to explain everything those features can do.

To me Rockbox support is one of the best things about the Clip. I'd highly recommend it.
