Leaving aside the debate as to whether or not one should be used at all....
I really like MP3 palyers with a built-in clip, as they are so convenient for running, and have owned an iPod Shuffle (2nd generation) and a SanDisk Sansa Clip, which have both been absolutely brilliant.
Unfortunately, my Sansa Clip has just died. I still have the Shuffle, but it only has a 1GB capacity.
So.... does anyone know of any MP3 players with built-in clip apart from these two (and yes, I know about the Shuffle 4th Generation, which may indeed be an option).
Thanks in advance!
Oooh - that looks good!
Just to check - when you say "new", do you mean the 6th Generation launched September 2010?
Thanks for all the responses!
EG - had a look at the GoGear, but don't think it has a clip? Looks good otherwise.
Claret - reluctant to get another Sansa Clip due to the last one just dying... worried the same thing might happen again. And yes - 1Gb on the iPod is plenty for any run, but it does mean I have to change the music on it every now & again. No big deal I suppose, and it's good to change things around & keep the music fresh! I was just enjoying having 8 Gb of music & putting the player on shuffle!
So I guess I'll make do with the Shuffle for the time being, and maybe put the Nano on my birthday list. Trouble is, that's not until September!
Oh dear. I feel such a fool.
Having contacted Amazon to see if I had any customer rights over an MP3 that dies after 9 months, they suggested I checked on the Sandisk site first. Quite why I didn't think to do this is beyound me, but there you go.
Anyway, looking at the "troubleshooting" section of the forum there, it appears that this is a known problem, and all the device needs is a reset. So now I have a fully working SanDisk Sansa Clip once again! Woop!
So what have I learnt?
1. I'm an idiot (although I probably knew that already)
2. Amazon's after sales service is very good (it was a personalised response to my enquiry, not a standard "fob off")
3. I still quite like the look of the new Nano.
