Sansa Clip Zip 8GB + free 8GB microSD £39.99 - Play.com (sold by play.com)

8GB sansa clip zip (the new one with color screen) and free 8GB microsd card. Seems a good deal for a great clip mp3. (sdcard fully integrated) great sound quality and great for audiobooks etc. imho. Couldn't see it posted already..

Got a Clip + . Same sound (outstanding) would love this upgrade but a bit pointless just for the sake of colour screen/album art. If wavering don't: just buy one!

With cards so cheap now the extra 8GB is quite pointless for many when 16GB or 32GB is better.

Sound quality is only matched by the iPod classic though. It certainly beats the rest.

Thanks Lady, I think the point is the the 8GB is free... even if only a spare, I still don't think its cheaper anywhere?

I think the 4gb version for £29.99 is maybe a better deal.
I was thinking of upgrading but after reading some reviews found that the the Zip does not show on screen track numbers - unlike previous versions. If you listen to a lot of audio books, as I do, it is very useful to see track number at a glance. Personally I'd rather have that than 'album art' which seems a bit redundant on such a small screen anyway.
The only advantage that I can tell over the Clip+ is that it has an improved and sturdier clip. Either way, the sound on all the sansa Clips is excellent and I would recommend one of these over an iPod any day.

The other advantage is support for aac files, which is missing in the Clip+ and which Rockbox does not fix, either. This should let you play iTunes purchases without having to recode.

Anyone know if these are eu limit ? I've got a sony walkman but it's too quiet ! I really want a sansa something as i want to beable to put a sd card in it (2gb/4gb or 8gb I am not bothered but i don't know which to get ?) Any help much appreciated !

Hi Gunner, when you first turn it on choose north america and it stops the limit.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I also forgot to ask about if i can create playlists on the player ? Is this better than the older one (8gb was £29.99 the other day) Thanks

Hi Mate, can't really help with playlists? I know the only real difference from the old clip+ is the graphics for album art, same excellent sound quality (and you can rockbox the old one if you want, just google it) if your not worried about colour screen then get the old one

Ahh k thanks. I'm looking at the 4gb (£29.99) as i have a spare 16gb msd that i don't as my san fran screen broke months ago.

I just wondered if you can create playlists as putting 20 gb of music on it and having to skip though them all....... to get to one song wouldn't work. Anyone know ? Thanks again

Yes, you can - on the Clip+ at least. Dunno about the ClipZip.

This is a good source for all info re: Sansa Clip players

Thanks for the reply much appreciated. Now you have me stuck as i don't know which to go with unless someone else confirms.

They both allow Rockbox and I very much doubt the zip does less than the clip.

The rockbox has me interested so I have ordered one, hoping to expand the memory with rockbox!!

They currently come with a 16GB microSD instead of 8, bringing the total size up to 24GB which is a pretty awesome deal for £39.99. I've ordered one despite owning 3 clip+s in the past, the sturdier clip is actually useful to me as mine seem to keep breaking off, I'm pretty rough with them though.
