How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

With the Clip Zip, Sansa shows there are still alternatives to the iPod worth considering. This portable media player isn't as small as Apple's iPod nano or shuffle, but is cheaper than either, and includes some features that neither Apple model has, such as integration with the Rhapsody music subscription service. It also includes an FM radio, a workout timer, and a microSD card slot, which lets you add up to 32GB of additional storage. No, it won't fit on your wrist like the nano. But even with the added cost of a microSD card, it's still cheaper, and may be just the right gym companion.
