Summary: I don't know how I missed reviewing this but I have at least three Zen mp3players from the early tiny ones to this one. I get great sound with $15 headphones. Like the old cell phones, you cannot see the screen in daylight.
Summary: As a music player, both the Zen and Zen X-Fi is easy to use, it's easy to put music on, it recognizes most file types, and is just generally well designed. My Zen-Fi lasted me about 2 years before it died.
Summary: I never got around to reviewing this when i first got it some years ago. I was satisfied with it at the time, the sound quality was fine as far as i was concerned although i am not insanely audiophilic. I found it best at just playing albums. Push play and forget it.
Summary: LOVE THIS PLAYER BUT JUST RECENTLY THE CARD READER STOPPED WORKING AND NOW WORKS INTERMITTENTLY IF I HAPPEN TO BE PLAYING MUSIC BEFORE I GO TO THE CARD READER AND THEN NOT ALWAYS. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF I NEED TO DOWNLOAD AN UPDATED DRIVER ETC. OR IF I'M JUST OUT OF LUCK. PLEASE HELP ME IF YOU CAN.
Summary: I brought this product 2 years ago, it provides with great audio quality, above average battery life, useful FM radio, and the EP-830 noise-isolating earbuds are way better than most, the only issue i found is related to the SD support, not only the integration is mediocre but I also got randomly...
Problems with fast fwd, rew, since day 1, ZERO help from Creative Labs
7 July 2012
Summary: I owned a Creative Labs "Zen" 4GB model before this one and was VERY happy with that unit. It died so I decided to buy one with a larger capacity. The unit I purchased NEVER WORKED CORRECTLY from day one. I use the unit almost exclusively for listening to audio books, both MP3 and WMA formats.
Summary: I was suckered into buying another creative product after receiving a 'discount certificate' as a result of a class action suit concerning another of their mp3 players. I probably used this 20 times in 3 years and it frequently locked up.
