SanDisk Sansa Clip review conclusion

SanDisk Sansa Clip review conclusion

SanDisk Sansa Clip surprisingly good

The SanDisk Sansa Clip pleasantly surprised me in two ways. A neat design and fashionable appearance is one thing, music quality is the other and the more important thing. It is nice to see how SanDisk develop their audio technology in a short period of time, as well as extremely fast. The Sansa Clip definitely produces a fabulous sound, despite the fact that the headphones don't look suitable at first glance. The bass shows to full advantage and sounds clear and full. The Sansa Clip is an excellent MP3 player and has everything you may expect and need in order to play your own music everywhere, whilst the 4GB of memory offers sufficient storage capacity. The SanDisk Clip offers a well-structured and simple menu that is easy to work with.

Minor points of the SanDisk Sansa Clip

The Sansa Clip does, however, have some minor points, too, such as; the voice recording function and the radio that both do not work optimally, the radio has a bad reception and the music quality drops significantly. Furthermore, the Sansa Clip feels rather cheap, it looks like cheap plastic giving you the feeling it would break easily if you drop it. This is not the case, though; the Clip is made of nothing but high quality plastic and won't break too easily. Finally; the 3mm jack connection is found on the right side, and for right-handed people this is quite difficult when you hold the device in your right hand. I'd prefer the 3mm connection to be placed on the bottom or top side of the MP3 player. The SanDisk Sansa Clip is certainly worth buying. I am convinced that this MP3 player is better than the Creative Zen Stone, thanks to the improved monitor and music quality. The SanDisk Clip is certainly of the same level (or even higher) than the Apple iPod shuffle.
