Sorry. I have ADD and that just threw me for a loop. Anyway, I think this is great player with plenty of room for a great running mix. For twenty bucks, I wouldn't be that upset even if it breaks. I can live without an SD slot, since I have another MP3 player for serious listening. That's just how I prioritize these things.
Thanks for putting things in proper perspective, *again* (i.e., I ended up taking your advice to wait a bit longer before getting a second subwoofer). : )
Here's where I'm at: I haven't used an MP3 player in a LONG time (basically, since they came out). I've been wanting to start again, even went to trying to find at least 1 of the 2 old ones I have somewhere around here (found boxes, manuals, cables, CD's, so far, but no players).
Well, even tho I paid many times more for my old ones, and even tho I really need no more than those (they're both literally "first generation" portable MP3 players and have very low on-board memory -I think one 64-128Mb and the other was 256Mb, BUT they both allowed drag-n-drop file transfer for my small but constantly changing playlist of a few dozen songs, and at least one of them had an SD slot so I could start listening to audio books once in a while), since this Clip and similar Sansas are SO cheap, not to mention that they all FAR exceed the capabilities of either of my "antiques," and FM might be nice, I'm just going to woot one.
The only reason I haven't just pressed the botton on this Clop is cuz it can't do the Rockbox thing everyone is saying is pretty necessary, and what ever one I buy will be my last for a while, i.e., I don't see upgrading or buying another any time soon, not at least until the one I get now breaks or I lose it.
SO, should I just wait for the next Sansa that CAN do whatever it is that RB does (which shouldn't be long or cost [much] more, if I remember correctly...and I could always hunt down and use one of my old ones if there's no RB able Sansa's wooted or woot-offed sooner than later), OR should I just get this without RB capability?
