To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This little gem is just what I was looking for. It is cheap, very compact and sturdily made. If you don't like having to manually transfer files on your PC then it may not be for you. Otherwise it really does an excellent job. Files can be copied and moved from your iTunes folder in your File Explorer and dropped into this mp3 player easily and it can hold so many more files than my old nano iPod. Great value.
This little MP3 player has great sound is easy to use and navigate through. I did find it is not compatible with the song files straight off iTunes on a MAC. They have to be converted to MP3's which is a bit time consuming but not a big issue.
This is the second Clip Jam I have bought. I use them to listen to Audible audiobooks. They are replacing an iPod Classic that has been brilliant but changes in software by first Apple and then Audible have rendered it redundant. The Clip Jam is one of the few MP3 players that can handle the Audible files ( at the moment! ). I download the books via the Audible software on Windows 10. What Sandisk don’t tell you is that if you follow the procedure as set up you get an audiobook that plays in the left ear only!!! I bought this Clip Jam because I got fed up with one ear listening and assumed that the original was somehow faulty. It has taken me over a year and a trawl of the Internet to find that you have to alter the setup and download books in HIGH QUALITY to get sound in both ears! Having done this and having replaced the earbuds with Beltron set I now have TWO brilliant little players that are superb for listening to books while walking or working in the garden. The controls took some getting used to but for the money these are excellent. Just a pity that the manufacturers can’t be bothered to set the player up so that it works in both ears as standard.
As a replacement for an old Sansa Clip this is a huge disappointment. It's plasticky and feels fragile in the hand, when I click on the control button the whole front panel moves (this never used to be a separate piece on the old model which was also solidly built). Also the controls just don't work and will only play on 'shuffle' - it's impossible to select by album etc. so audiobooks can't be listened to.
I'm hugely disappointed as my old SansaClip is still working after about 5 years - this model is rubbish.
I ordered the first one of these a few months back - it lasted one use before the buttons stopped working and it was not useable. The second item (which Amazon replaced) also had the same issue - but after a couple of months. In summary, this item should not be bought because it is unfit for purpose i.e. use over 2 months in length - lol
Had one about a fortnight,bought red one for the bright colour in case I misplaced it.Charged up & put a couple of radio shows on it as I bought it for spoken word rather than music,went to play 1st track & it died.Internet advice/fixes don't work & computer now not recognising it, still to hear back from SanDisk/seller.Have a couple of older AAA battery powered players & despite the knocks they've had they still work.Don't know if this is the quality of mp3 players these days but wouldn't buy this again. Extremely disappointed SanDisk
