Sandisk Sansa Clip Plus 2 GB
Advantages: Great Sound Quality, Great Battery life, Expandable Memory, Cheap to buy.
I have had my Sansa Clip+ for a year and a half now, and still find it to be one of the best purchases I have made.
The player itself is very easy to use. You have the player controls, which double up as direction buttons, a select button, volume control, power button and a home button. You simply just select a track or playlist, and off you go.
The player allows you to sort your music in a variety of ways, such as by Artist, Album, Album Artist, Recently Added, or Songs. It also has a "Go List," which allows you to create playlists on the player on the go. The Player also has an FM Radio, if your own music library is not enough. It also has an Audio Recorder than can record from the FM Radio or the built in microphone.
It is very easy to sync the player with any software. I use Windows Media Player or MediaMonkey, and both of these work fine. It is also fully compatible with the Device Stage in Windows 7, allowing for easier syncing and firmware updates, and viewing device statistics such as battery remaining and memory remaining. It just uses a standard Mini USB cable to connect to the computer.
It contains a MicroSD slot, which i have tested to work fine with a 16gb card.
Battery life is great, I usually manage about 15-20 hours of constant usage before needing a recharge. This does depend on what I am using the player to drive, which I mention below.
The sound quality this player puts out is it's major strong point. While the headphones included aren't bad as included headphones go, you really need to upgrade them in order to get the best out of it. I use Sony XB20EX headphones with it, which give an excellent sound. When I am not on the move, it can also drive larger headphones without problems, but this does reduce battery life. It also has many EQ presets and a customizable preset, however I find the sound quality is great with this turned off, so don't use it, as it also reduces battery life.
The little OLED screen is also great, as it is very clear and bright.
I usually get comments from people about how tiny it is, and they can't believe the quality of the sound that comes out of it.
In short, if you want a simple MP3 player that does just that, and does it brilliantly with amazing quality, this is the player you want.
Summary: A great value no frills MP3 player.
