I reviewed the 2 gen older version of this mp3 player several years ago. The Sansa Clip+. Let me just direct you to that product since it is still the best mp3 player in this category/price range. It’s successor, the Clip Zip, introduced a (crappy) color screen, slightly crappier build and a few less really useful features. It was annoying, but still a lot of capabilities in such a small form factor and under 50 bucks. Now the Clip Sport is here, and they’ve gone another step backwards, shaving off a couple more features (including recording capabilities), enlarging the body and screen (but with the same low pixel density as before, and now regular LCD instead of OLED that the previous ones had), and making the interface just a tad less intuitive than before.
I don’t get it. They had several years to update hardware/specs, reintroduce features that consumers expressly missed in the last Clip, and maybe even *gasp* actually ADD features. Nope. Here’s the crappiest Clip yet. Please pay $50 for the same slightly more worthless device because it’s now LARGER.
Bottom line: Screw this thing. Buy yourself a Clip+. Outside of not iphone 6s black Friday having a color screen here are the advantages of the Clip+: AMOLED screen (not full color but WAY easier to read in sunlight), more intuitive interface, better options including voice recorder, the ability to record and save radio broadcasts, better audiobook controls, smaller and more lightweight. If you need AAC (iTunes music format) compatability, go with the Clip Zip. It’s not as good as the Clip+, but still better than the Sport.
— It ignores track number. Yes, audiobook fans, when you take this out of the box it will play your audiobook tracks in random order, although by first installing a patch and then using a work-around you can eventually get the tracks to play in the right order (assuming the file names are ordered the same as the track numbers). Possibly there’s an engineer at Sandisk who can’t resist skipping to the last page in the middle of the first chapter, and wants to introduce us all to this experience. Or possibly Sandisk simply hates audiobook listeners. Or perhaps they fired everyone who knew about mp3 tags and replaced them with clueless contractors (yeah, I’m going with this one).
— There’s an inexplicable three-second delay in pausing. This is really useful if you’re a mom who likes audiobooks and has kids in the house, because now, instead of pausing instantly when you’re needed, you get to either miss three seconds of audiobook or the first three seconds of whatever your kid is saying. If this seems minor, you’ve never been interrupted 20 times in an hour, while you try to both be respectful to your family and yet listen to a really good novel. Presumably Sandisk’s next model will have a ten-second delay before pausing, and after that “pause” will be phased out entirely.
— The Clip Sport only gets detected by the computer about half the time when I plug it in. Same computer I was using the old Clip+ with. No rhyme or reason to it. Just have to keep plugging & unplugging or trying different USB ports until it gets recognized.

— Audio files randomly stop playing partway through and claim the file is corrupted or is the wrong type or similar. Yet when I plug the player into my laptop — and, eventually, get the computer to see it — I can play that same file from the Clip Sport and listen to the file all the way through via the computer. So, clearly, there is nothing at all wrong with the file. The Clip Sport is simply petulant.
— If you adjust the volume, you will lose all ability to pause, rewind, or fast forward for several seconds until it finally drops the volume display. They really love their bigger screen at Sandisk and they want you to have to stare at it as much as possible, never mind whatever it is you’re doing at the time.
— If you accidentally bump the forward button and skip to the next track, the display will not show that you are on the next track. It will helpfully stay on the track you *used* to be on. Not to worry! After the first 40 times you realize the display doesn’t match the track you’re on, you will cotton on to the Clip Sport’s wily ways and come to see this as an endearing eccentricity.
— Does not really, in actuality, have a hard reboot. You can hold down buttons to your heart’s content, but sometimes it’s going to take you ten minutes to get it unstuck when it thinks (silly thing!) that it has a corrupt file, even though it doesn’t.
— Under the Folders section — because if you expect your tracks to play in order, you will be using the Folders section — the Audiobooks category will list a great many audiobook tracks which have actually been deleted. There’s nothing like a little nostalgia for audiobooks gone by, right? And it’s a nice challenge to hunt through a realllly long list to find the book you are currently listening to.
And now I’m off to either purchase a different brand or find some 2009 vintage Clip+ players on eBay or the like (I don’t trust the ones they’re currently producing — god only knows who’s in charge of the joint these days).
— Pro-tip: Podcasts are to be found under “Books”. Because they’re basically really tiny books, right?
1. Play songs in track # order (only alphabetically)
2. Lock the keys during play so it skips every time you bump it so don’t plan using it during sports
3. Combines albums of the same artist so they are all @#$$* up.
4. Call SanDisk and get help. They think everyone likes music alphabetically and filled with sudden skips

This is the poorest design of an Mp3 player I have ever experienced from a company I used to love and trust. Sanyo has lost its best customer!
