Summary: Every month, manufacturers unleash even more MP3 players to an increasingly confused public. Not only do these devices have wildly divergent features, but ongoing format wars mean the MP3 player you choose dictates where you can buy your digital music. These devices are anything but one-size-fits-all. First, there's the question of design.
Summary: The first day I bought this, it didn't work. But then the next day, it worked a gain. I continued to use it for 1 month, and it didn't work completely. Many people used it and said that it is a bad product with errors.
Summary: I bought this piece of crap and found out it's not compatible with tracks which are downloaded in DRM (Digital Rights Management) format which 6 out of 6 songs I downloaded from Napster were in. So, I have basically a $200 radio. Worthless. DO NOT BUY!!!
Summary: I bought this player for my nephew(age15) one year ago. After the first month it wouldn't work. called and they refused a new one, only rebuilt. OK. Sent it back and 4 1/2 months later it stopped playing again. They refused him any replacement, partial payment to fix it, no solution to the problem. I am sitting here with this $179.MP3 player that doesn't work, that I can now get for $119 and am not sure what to do with it. Do I throw it away, can it be fixed(again).
Summary: I have had the Rhomba now for about 8 months and I am very happy with it. There was a problem after about 3 months but after some intense convosations with creative's customer support and online assitance I upgraded the firmware and have had no problems. It can hold enough wma for my needs. It is small enough to go running with (the reason I chose it in the first place). I have a couple of issues with it which would not have stopped me buying it. but may be of concen.
Summary: My Rhomba. Its a excellent MP3 Player, FM Radio, Voice Recorder, and "portable drive". The "pro's": Great Sound. Strong Bass. Good FM signal receiver. Pretty. Light. Blue ligth. The "con's": Firmware Update needed. The files are in the creative web. Es la mejor alternativa. He conocido muchos pendrive con FM que se venden en Chile, pero el sonido no se compara con el del "Rhomba". La mejor decision.
Summary: just for the record: last day off my vacation in mexico and i dived into the Carraibean with my digital camera into my pocket :) (don't ask why) and althogh the camera is now mearly scrap (pentax optio s) the memory card works fine and i didn't lost any of my vacation photos with would have been a lot worse - so SD cards are water proof and salt water proof :)
Summary: It's surprisingly small which allows me to easily toss it in my pocket. Thus far I've downloaded about 50 songs and still have room for about 30-40 more. The only problem is finding the right place to download from. I avoid Kazaa due to its spyware/adware and virus problems. I currently use MusicMatch which works great with some extra work.
Summary: read the reviews on the Internet the same way you are reading now. When I went to the store I have been misled by the salesman. He told me that the creative is a great brand and no one returned the product so far. He told me " if it was a bad product creative would have taken it of the shelf by now". I bought the product and it stop working after TWO DAYS" not responding at all. I talked to the customer support and they ask me to send the product to them.
