Summary: I love this mp3 player-- it fits everywhere, has a long battery life, reasonable quality audio for recording, efficient with space, very user-friendly, etc. My only problem with this player is that I have had two defective ones. The first player brought me joy and happiness until 2 weeks of living with me, when it would shut off every time it was ready to advance to the next song. That's fine. So I got a replacement.
Summary: I got this player as a gift in April. It was fantastic until the beginning of December, when it wouldn't turn on. After trying to turn it on about ten times it finally worked, but never again. Now it doesn't come on at all. I sent and e-mail to the company for advice. They recommended some procedures that didn't help. Now they say that it needs to be returned to them for service, at a minimum of a $25 fee for labor, plus postage.
Summary: Creative MuVo MP3 Player have problem playing particular mP3 songs. It plays WMV file songs smoothly. However, it always give a buzz when playing MP3. The voice recorder's quality is acceptable, but it consumes a lot of power when recording. If I were you, I would definitely give a thought on this MP3 player!
Summary: This wonderful player did everything it was said to do until it randomly stopped working about a week and a half after purchase. Finding myself truely disappointed and not having a fix for the problem or even an understanding of what the actual problem was, i returned the product.
Summary: Strengths: Lightweight size...User friendly...great sound quality...good battery life...easy to rip music from cd's. Weaknesses: MP3 playing capability didn't last a month...cumbersome when wanting to record from the tuner...cheap feel, fagile design...wasn't worth the money. Summary: I paid about $90 for this player, and that was with an educator's discount. The first week I had it I was quite impressed.
Summary: From the moment I received this unit, it became possessed by demons unknown to me. For starters, it would shut down without warning, mid-play; the only way to start it back up would be to take the batteries out and re-insert. The ability to scroll songs failed entirely. Creative Labs directed me to download drivers and other assorted "fixes", even though I was running the exact type of computer recommended by Creative that should by all accounts have worked seamlessly...
Summary: Although I love the size and plug-and-play simplicity of this player, I can't stand the way it works. A perky customer support person at Creative told me that it was not designed to support "playlists." What that means is that you cannot control the order in which songs are played. So, if you are making a workout mix, you can't put the fast songs first and then cool down songs. You can't listen to albums in their entirety or intended order.
Summary: I bought this player because of all the good reviews and it had a built in FM radio, line in recording and it had a drag and drop feature for copying files. When I got the player I was immediately disappointed because the player though very light was made of very cheap plastic. Also, the buttons does not seem very sturdy. The MP3 sound quality is good but the FM radio reception is very poor. I previously had a Nomad II, which had a much better reception.
Summary: This may help other users who are considering other Creative Products: Good: - Uses AAA batteries - Remembers position when playing MP3 (useful for podcasts) - Supports Chinese and Japanese song titles - Good after-sales service - I've got 2 new replacement units in the 1-year warranty period Bad: - Bad product quality - I needed to go to the service centers 2 times within one year: a.
