If you’re in the market for an affordable MP3 player that’s light weight and perfect for working out or running, you should consider the SanDisk Sansa Clip + 4GB MP3 Player SDMX18R-004GK-A57 (Black).
SanDisk Sansa Clip + 4GB MP3 Player SDMX18R-004GK-A57 (Black) is a small device that clips on to almost any article of clothing making it perfect for the gym or long distance running. I’ve been using the SanDisk Sansa Clip for the past three weeks after my iPod Shuffle broke. I chose it because it was small and affordable. It holds up to 1000 songs or 60 hours of music, 2400 photos or 12 hours of video. Although the video storage feature doesn’t get any use on my personal SanDisk Sansa Clip, you can’t watch video on the player, it is nice to know I have the option to store video if the issue ever arises. The rechargeable battery lasts up to 15 hours. Other features include a digital FM tuner with 40 presets and a built in voice recorded for on the go thoughts. The memory card slot enables you to load preloaded cards of music or video. I find the small size and lightweight (2.16” x 1.32” x 0.60” and 0.85oz) perfect for the gym. The playlist and shuffle features ensure I will always have the right music for the right workout. It’s almost half the size of an Apple iPod Nano 4GB 2nd Generation and much more affordable coming it at $44.99 at Sandisk.com. My only complaint is the right headphone stopped working after only a few listens. I replaced the original headphones with a higher quality brand and the music sounds great. It comes with a USB cable for charging and adding music from your Mac or PC. It is also available in a variety of colors including black, white, indigo and blue. If 4GBs isn’t enough or is too much it is also available in 8GB and 2GB models at varying prices.
