Creative ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN

PC Magazine
15 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Armed with wireless streaming features, but hindered by an irksome user interface, the affordable ZEN X-Fi is a solid player, but lacks the graceful navigation of devices from Apple or Samsung.
  • Pros: Streams and downloads music wirelessly. FM Radio and voice recorder. Quality earphones are included.
  • Cons: User interface needs work. Most videos need to be converted with the included software. Loaded with buttons.

Creative Zen X-Fi (16GB) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
18 September 2008
  • Summary: The Creative Zen X-Fi provides excellent sound quality (with the X-Fi Expand turned off) and support for multiple audio and video formats at a very reasonable price. It offers a larger screen and capacity than the similarly priced Sony Walkman NWZ-S718F , but we prefer its rival's Mac compatibility...

Review: Creative Zen X-Fi

20 July 2008
  • Summary: Creative is marketing its new Zen X-Fi digital media player as "the sound of perfection," which unfortunately is a bit of an overstatement. It is the company's best-sounding player to date and it does sound undeniably great, but really only when X-Fi, its most lauded feature, is disabled.

Creative Zen X-Fi Review

Anything but iPod
19 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Compared to the Zen, the build quality is improved, upgraded headphones are included, and the wireless feature works pretty well even though it really puts a drain on your battery. But that is as far as I will go as calling the new features improvements. X-Fi sound enhancement is not an improvement.
  • Pros: Upgraded headphones included, Very good build quality, Good sound quality, Wireless Setup and Streaming is Easy
  • Cons: Weak FM Radio, Poor SD implementation, Chat is poorly implemented, Text input, Poor top down viewing angle, Emulated X-Fi

Portable media player with Wi-Fi connectivity

Good Gear Guide.au
30 July 2009
  • Summary: The Creative ZEN X-Fi continues the tradition of past ZEN players, offering a compelling alternative to the iPod range. However, Wi-Fi and the X-Fi modes are poorly implemented and don't bring much to the table.
  • Pros: Stylish design, wide array of formats supported, lots of features, large storage capacity
  • Cons: Wireless connectivity of limited usefulness, keypad makes it difficult to type, X-Fi modes not worth using, SD card slot poorly implemented
