SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 8GB MP3 Player with Radio and Expandable MicroSD/SDHC Slot - Black  Front View with earphones

But why would anyone want an MP3 player? Surely they´re obsolete because everyone has a smartphone/Ipod and uses that instead? Sure, I hear you saying that we´ll all be playing cassette tapes next and recording the Top 20 from Radio 2 on a Sunday afternoon…

But what if you want a truly tiny, portable and cheap alternative? Or don´t have a smartphone/alternative player? Or don´t want to lug it around with you. If you can answer yes to any of these questions then the SanDisk Sansa Clip+ starts to make sense.

Firstly, it is matchbox small – 34.7mm x 55mm x 15.33mm and weighing 24g, that´s small and light enough to be carried very easily and an integrated clip secures firmly to your clothing for easy, hands-free usability.

The 8GB capacity allows you to store up to 8000 songs. And with its MicroSD expansion slot you can easily add additional storage to increase this – up to 32GB is supported. The SanDisk also supports MP3, WMA, secure WMA, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, plus audio books and podcasts, so there shouldn´t be any shortage of suitable material.

The SanDisk player features solid-state flash memory for skip-free playback, making it ideal for any activity where you´re moving about.  And a bright, easy-to-read OLED screen with searchable menu and simple buttons makes it easy to choose playlists or songs combined with a long-life rechargeable battery giving up to 15 hours of continuous playback.

A USB 2.0 cable is supplied to connect the SanDisk to a computer to transfer music or re-charge it. Compatible with PCs running Windows XP or later and Macs with OSX 10.3 or later means you´re likely to have no problems

But that´s not all. The SanDisk Sansa Clip+ MP3 Player comes with an integrated digital FM tuner with over 40 presets to store and quickly access your favourite radio stations. You can also record messages and reminders using the built-in microphone. It even has a set of earphones too…  

Verdict – Should you buy this marvellous little player?

The SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 8GB MP3 player with radio is ideal for those who want to carry music around with them but don´t want a bulky (or expensive) smartphone or conventional MP3 player. And with its ease of use and long battery life the SanDisk ticks all the right boxes.
