Summary: I bought this to replace my Meizu Mini Player, because it seemed simple but not simplistic. The menu is easy and intuitive, and the sound is good. It's very small, which I actually really liked, and the controls were touch like the Meizu. Basically, it was the perfect MP3 player for two glorious days. It began glitching and I was annoyed, but not worried.
Summary: Had it for under a year and it's died 2 or 3 times. I was able to recover it using the reset button until yesterday. It's fully charged and the computer recognizes it but it will not power up or display anything on the screen. I never really liked it anyway. The bluetooth functionality was unreliable and the touch screen was..touchy! Not really good for hiking or exercise. Better for stationary home use.
Summary: When I purchased this device, I had two requirements: I wanted to be able to stream MP3 via bluetooth to my car stereo; and I wanted to be able to manage the music on the device with just a file manager, and not be forced to use a certain well-known proprietary manager of "tunes". It can do those things okay, but I never worried that one of the far more basic functions of the device would be a weakness. As far as a player goes, it's "meh".
if the bluetooth would connect, review would be better

Summary: Creative has some creative copy. The products always sound great but inevitably fall short in the experience. For some reason I stii will but their stuff and still wind up feeling disappointed.
Summary: I purchased this as it is the only standalone MP3 player that has Bluetooth streaming and needed something for in my car. The fake touch screen buttons are very slow. Navigating 20GB of music is painful. Playing albums doesn't play in track order, plays in alphabetical order. For some reason, the player supports deleting tracks and is always popping up a prompt to delete a track, most likely due to the really bad fake touch screen buttons. Regret my purchase.
Summary: I am a big fan of audiobooks and I like this player because you can stop it in the middle of a chapter and not have to search for your place again. However, the last one I ordered would not turn off when I plugged it in to charge so I returned it and they sent me another one that does the same thing, so that removes the benefit of saving your place. No bookmark feature either. Also, they last for a few months and die and the amazon return period is 30 days.
Summary: To play music from the memory card you have to go through a different menu branch, which is not very convenient when browsing for an artist. Also, one of two devices ordered had a defective play/pause/select button.
Keep all of your packaging, you will be sending it back

Summary: One day it worked, the next it didn't. No warning. I am not a teenager, but old enough to be the parent of a teenager. I use this device at work, 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. It has not been dropped in water, on the ground or stepped on. It is in a case and has a screen protector. I tried to charge it on a Sunday night in preparation for work the next day. Nothing. It will not turn on or show that it is charging.
Contents of MicroSD card are not integrated into music library

Summary: I have to say I was quite disappointed with this. I am used to my Sansa Clip+, but I wanted something I could use wireless headphones with, so when I saw this had Bluetooth and a MicroSD slot, I jumped on it. I hate Windows Media Player almost as much as iTunes (almost, but not quite), so I drag and drop files directly onto my MP3 player and SD card via Windows Explorer, and usually play files by genre with shuffle turned on.
