SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip MP3 Player – Review & Giveaway – Frugal Novice

SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip MP3 Player – Review & Giveaway

I’ve been incorporating exercise into my weekly routine for quite a while now. Sometimes I walk with a friend from work, but when I exercise alone it can get boring really quickly. Music makes working out seem to go by much faster, and an upbeat song can be really motivating because it helps me get my energy level up!

The SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip MP3 player is the perfect option for easy, convenient music listening, whether you’re working out or just on the go. I got the chance to review one for myself, and was excited to receive the white one because I think it just looks slick – don’t you?

   

The Sansa Clip Zip retails for $49.99 on the SanDisk site, which makes it an affordable option… but do the features make it a good choice? Let’s take a look:

  • The clip makes it easy for you to stick the device to your clothing – and it’s small, so it’s not bulky or cumbersome at all.
  • The color screen is appealing, and the navigation is easy to use. Without even reading the manual first, I had no problems figuring out how to use the different options.
  • Speaking of options, there’s so much you can do: music, radio, books (audiobooks/podcasts), voice recording, and stopwatch timing.
  • This MP3 player holds 4GB of music, but you can use a microSDHC memory card to add even more storage space.
  • The battery can last up to 15 hours, making it great to take out with you for an entire day.
  • There are seven colors available: Stealth Black, Primetime Purple, Gunmetal Grey, Momentum Blue, Jumpstart Red, Encore Orange, and White Flash.
  • It’s really easy to add music, even if you’re on a Mac like I am. The guide provides clear instructions and you can get up and running in no time.

The only thing I think needs improvement is the earbuds. They’re decent, but I’d like something a little smaller that fits better into my ears. For the price, though, you could afford to get other earbuds and still be spending less than you would on other MP3 players.

The SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip would make a great gift or stocking stuffer for virtually anyone on your list! And…

One of you will win a free 4GB Sansa Clip Zip and free shipping! Four others will receive coupons for 20% off. This contest is open to US residents age 18+.
