SanDisk ups Sansa Clip to 8GB

updated 09:10 am EST, Tue November 11, 2008

SanDisk Sansa Clip 8GB

SanDisk raised the stakes in its competition against the iPod shuffle and Creative ZEN Stone with a new, 8GB version of the Sansa Clip. The capacity gives it storage for up to 2,000 songs and doubles the capacity of Creative's best ultra-small models and quadruple that of Apple's. It continues to hold the same four-line OLED display that lets it have full control over music while still rendering it small enough to attach to a belt or clothes through its namesake hook.

The player is also very close in other respects and lasts for up to 15 hours of Audible, MP3 or WMA audio, It also carries an FM radio and a built-in mic for voice recording in spite of its small profile. SanDisk is selling the 8GB Clip starting this week at $100.

    nice

    For a tiny player, this is the best in every way if your library is mp3--sound quality, display, FM radio. But this interface is 3 content lines and at some point if you have a lot of content, which can happen with 8GB, navigating isn't so elegant. But having a display at all blows away any shuffle unless maybe you are illiterate. It would have been nice to get a 4GB at cheaper without the darkened display that had which made only the 4GB unusable in moderate daylight. I also would have rather prices come down on this even further but it is okay. An 8GB Fuze was only $130 and it allowed me to expand to 16GB for another $50.
