I bought this little guy to replace a 6th Gen iPad Nano. My main complaints about the Nano: 1. No buttons, difficult to work with it when you are running or working out. Difficult to pause when a co-worker arrives at your desk. 2. I'm a Linux guy. The 6th gen iPod nano is not compatible with any Linux drivers. Will not work with gtk-pod. Running a VM just for an iPod is a drag. 3. You're stuck with the storage size you buy. Don't get me wrong, I really did like the Nano, but for my usage patterns it was not ideal. The Zip Clip takes care of the above problems and then some. 1. Buttons are easy to find and navigate, even when you are not using your eyes. 2. You can load it just using your raw MP3's or MTP mode using Rhythmbox on Linux, and lots of other music managers on other platforms. 3. Stick a microSD card in it and bam, you now have a 36 GB portable music player. 4. Bonus, the Zip Clip has a custom EQ mode as well as presets, so you can make your music sound just the way you want. 5. Bonus, the Zip Clip supports the leveling encoded in your MP3's or albums. Yes, the iPod has sound check but that's all secret voodoo stuff and only works with their own files. The size is a bit bigger than the nano but it's made of plastic and is nearly the same weight (Zip Clip is 25 grams, nano is 20.) I clip it on my watchband when I'm working out. It also dangles from my lanyard when I'm working. My RSA fob and badge weigh way more than the Zip Clip. I'm really happy with this thing, it does exactly what I want it to do. Dealing with the iPod was becoming rather frustrating to a non-Apple guy and I find that the Zip Clip has a couple added features that make it work and sound better than the iPod. Me like.

I LOVE SANSA

on 4/5/2012

I replaced my old Sansa MP3 (which worked great for years) because I wanted to differentiate between music and audiobooks. Not only does this device have a separate audiobook folder--it keeps separate bookmarks for each book I have on the player. Recently took it to the beach and was thrilled at it's performance for both music and books. It's super easy to navigate and use in general (pausing, finding music, playlists). Will never lose the orange player in my purse either! Would highly recommend it! Excellent sound quality and value for the price. Read More
