MARGINAL VALUE

bbgtech, Ebay
26 December 2009
  • Summary: The item arrived in working order, although it was not cleaned of former content and not set to defualt factory settings. All accessorories were included. HOwever the wear on the device was more than claimed and soon after both the device and a connecting cable malfunctioned. The device had a weak/marginally functional power switch which soon lost all function. Take this warning, tested and working is not the same as factory condition.

  • Summary: bought this for my daughter last year. She has had nothing but trouble with it. It was already sent back and fixed and still does not work right. Now the warranty is not valid so she is stuck with it.

Decent MP3 Player until..................

Juan "Gadget Lover", Amazon
23 March 2006
  • Summary: Until it begins freezing up. I bought mine when it came out and the unit worked fine for 2 months then froze once in mid song and once during song selection. Once it freezes you have 2 choices pray it unfreezes or wait until the battery drains. Read the reviews by Dallasite & E. Lee. Same thing happened to me I contacted Creative and followed their instructions the reboot seems to help temporarly and the firmware update makes the player unresponsive.

Excellent idea, poor execution

Montgomer..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: "Bought this for my son via Curry's Online for his birthday and Christmas, late November He loved the easy to use software, high volume, usage as memory stick, support of multiple formats. He disliked the "fidgety" touch pad. The audio connector failed in a week. And build up of dust in the screen within 3 days. We took it back to our local Currys in a week and it was discontinued/out of stock. We replaced it with a Sony, which he does not like ...
  • Pros: Good volume, easy to use software, fast loading
  • Cons: Poor durability, poor display, poor connectors

Seria bueno si no fuera por la bateria

Dyoser, Ciao
5 March 2007
  • Summary: He estado disfrutando durante mas de un año del aparato, sin ningun problema... hasta que la bateria ha empezado a hacer el tonto. Lo malo es que no me ha pasado solo a mi, sino que a 2 amigos con el mismo modelo, les esta empezando a pasar lo mismo. Se descarga sola, no carga totalmente... no es el tipico desgaste de bateria, y pueden pasar cosas diversas, a veces no carga... Una lastima que tenga estos problemas.....
  • Pros: Comodidad, radio, capacidad
  • Cons: Pantalla, bateria, sistema de carga
