SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 player

Molecule-sized micro MP3 player

Security for virtualized datacentres

The Clip's screen is a 24mm OLED affair showing a sort of aquamarine text against a black background. It works just fine for the job in hand, displaying main menu options one at a time then displaying four lines per screen in other settings. The firmware upgrade has increased the screen's maximum brightness making it more legible in direct sunlight than before.

The main controls on the fascia bear an obvious family resemblance to the rest of the Sansa family though on the Clip the circular control doesn't actually rotate, but simply click at the four compass points. The action feels a little cheap, but then this is a small, cheap MP3 player and at least the control wheel surround glows a soothing non-budget blue when activated.

The clip shuts and stays wherever you put it

The front-mounted Home button, a great idea on the Fuze, is no less of a great idea on the Clip while the side mounted volume and on/off/lock controls both fall easily to hand.

Menu navigation is rapid and straightforward and as always we were happy to find an artist/album/track menu structure.

Loading the Clip is a straightforward operation as either an MTP or MSC device and it picked up ID3 tags with 100% accuracy.
