Summary: I am not into I-phones yet so this to me is an excellent value, I put all my music library on it and play anything I am in a mood for. When ever I have had problems I push the reset button and everything works great.
Summary: I have used this product for over a year now and it has worked great. It's compatable with my computer and has an incredibly long battery life. My only complaint is that it takes so long to start up but that is typical of Zen products, in my experience.
Summary: I got this for free which is a good thing because it does not play mpeg4 nor does it play any of my wmv files. And if this is because it requires a special type of mpeg4 or wmv file well then that is pretty lame and I don't have time to fiddle with it. My ancient HP Compaq PDA works better.
Summary: I do not recommend this item. This is the second one we have purchased and they both have went bad within a year. Technical support what technical support, I know more about the MP3 then what they do. What a joke.
Summary: Previously had a Zen player which I lost. Easy to use software and player. Very pleased. A bit smaller than my last one (not sure why they downsized it since it was small to begin with), but that is more of an observation than a complaint. Good affordable, dependable player.
Summary: Once again Creative labs drops the ball. This is the only device they carry that has the fast forward/ rewind features needed to listen to audio books. So why is there no expansion card slot? Really? The thing is only 8 gig. I filled it completely within 3 hours of it arriving. Now I have to decide what to delete so I can add more. And of course since you cannot talk to a human while trying to decide what to buy you end up stuck with what you get.
Summary: I love it, excellent sound and great options, although the Playlist is a bit difficult to set and the headphones are terrible, jaja, I do recommend to buy separetely a nice pair to compliment the purchase! Cheers!
Terrible Music Organization - Worst MP3 Player Ever
E. Holcomb, Amazon
19 December 2011
Summary: I've owned other Creative Zens, and I've loved them. For some reason, they decided to change how music is organized. Previously, you could organize in terms of genres, under which you could browse artists, then albums - nicely hierarchical. Now it's genre, then album. You can't browse by genre/artist anymore. Also, forget about syncing your play-lists from Windows Media Player - that no longer works.
Summary: A little slow on start up. It remembers where it left off listening in a podcast mp3, unlike the old Zen. Doesn't crash like the old Zen. The screen glass seems to scratch easy. Mostly this is a good product.
Summary: I use my mp3 player for several hours every single day, so it has to be well made. I don't have enough cash to go the Apple route, so all of my players have been budget types. When my last player, a Sony Walkman 8Gb, died I decided to try something new and thus far I have been very happy with my Zen XFi Style 16 Gb.
