    Time to replace my Sansa Clip+ :(

    The thing has gone MIA. It was a great little gizmo and I may yet replace it with another, but also exploring options. Torn between strictly audio and audio+video+?...

    If you lost your little audio player, would you replace with another or sacrifice size and get a cheap android tablet?

    It really depends on what you use it for the most. I use mine mostly for riding but since I have to carry my phone anyways, I upgraded the memory card to 16gb and put all the music there.

    1. I use it primarily on the bus on the way to work and while doing household chores.
    2. Have a bare bones Tracfone, so no joy there.

    I love my Clip+. Not so much with the stock firmware, but with Rockbox and a 32 GB MicroSD card, it's pretty great. I'd buy another, myself.

    Replace the Sansa. They're one of the most versatile, compact and cheap players on the market. If you lose one, at least you're not out much dough.

    I only use mine for music on the jobsite, which is admittedly a hostile environment for sensitive electronics...and also no place to be watching videos.

    We have an iRiver T7 that I keep around for when I use a Zipcar here at work, and also an extremely cheap Visual Land 4GB audio/video player with an 8GB MicroSD card in it.

    Avoid the Visual Land. The iRiver is a great little mp3 player if you can remember which buttons do what. Menu, Play/Pause, FF, RW, volume +/- are easy enough. But some of them do different things in different contexts.

    I'm on my third Sansa and have loved every one. They work so well and are so inexpensive that if I kill it in a crash or loan it to a friend who loses it, I just smile and upgrade!

    Really got to replace it now. I was hoping it may have fallen out at work, but it wasn't there .

    I might run with Ruben's idea and upgrade my phone to one that has mp3 functionality. However, gonna wait and see if the wife can snag a prize from the company X-mas party tomorrow night- she's won 2 iPod's before.

    And I'm slightly amazed that post count in thread now in double digits and not one mention of Apple products until now...

    Lost Sansa = Out $30
    Lost iPod = Out $130.....

    BTW: My phone has an MP3 player as well, and is loaded with tunes, but battery life plummets as the music plays......

    Found it!

    The critter was in the back of the company van. Which means I get to avoid the cheap-o things from Big Lots my wife was going to buy.
