Default Hello, new member

Hi guys!

I like the information I've been reading on this site, so I thought I'd join.

My conversion began a few days ago when I purchased the Sansa Cilp Zip. I have had iPods for about 10 years and my iPod Touch 64GB has pretty much hit the memory limit, but I don't want to spend $230 something on an iPod Classic 160GB.

I got the Clip Zip because it was small, inexpensive ($30), Rockboxable and allowed expandable memory through microSD cards. I've had it for a few days so far and I have to say I didn't know what I was missing. I think it's easily as good of a music player as any iPod.

After installing Rockbox I was also able to listen to all my Apple Lossless CD rips and purchased AAC songs from iTunes.

I do still use iTunes just because it is so stupid simple to use and keeps my stuff organized.

I think the only thing my iPod does that my Clip can't do is the apps. But it's not a huge deal to me since I have an iPhone and even there, the only thing I do really often with the apps there is check my e-mail.

But just thought I'd pop in and say hi.

welcome to the fraternity of Clip users. Where did you get the Zip for $30? Online or a real store?

Thanks, Steve

Hello hogger129, and welcome to the forum!

There are a lot of friendly folks here to help you out with your gadgets. As you can see in my signature, I have an iPod Touch as well. But recently I got a new Nexus 7 and being my first Android device I am really enjoying it and prefer it to iOS, which seems outdated now lol.
