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: I won't waste a lot of your time reiterating my distaste for the new Centrale software. Compared with the Zen Media Explorer and Creative Media Source software which came with my Zens, Centrale is a step back into the stone ages.

Summary: I bought this mostly so I could listen to an audio book and then, if the mood strikes me, I can hear a bit of another audio book or perhaps some music. So the bookmark feature is very important to me. But I need it to resume when I return to the bookmark. It does but not as it should.
Summary: This item was highly recommended by my library for listening to downloaded books. It will take all formats of books available. Unfortunately I have yet to get the books on the player I think,in part, because I am not as tech savy as I need to be.
Summary: Sound quality is great. My previous MP3 Player was Sony and in comparison this one sounds much better. More clean and clear. The built-in speaker is nothing to boast about but it's a nice feature to have. My problem was with the instruction manual & usability.
Summary: It was time to upgrade to a new player and I really, really wanted something other than a Zen. Not that I didn't like my old Zen, I just wanted to change to something else. But I listen to a lot of audiobooks and didn't see how I could do without the bookmark feature, which very few media players...
Summary: The sound and features of the ZEN X-Fi 32GB player are great. But, the build quality leaves a LOT to be desired. I switched to it from a Zune, which is a HUGE pain to get your music onto, versus the ZEN's easy Windows interface.
Summary: Pros: Creative Zen X-fi is not a bad MP3 player. It holds a lot and supports big SD cards. Sound quality is good and the enclosed earbuds are not bad. Screen is big and easy to see. Battery life is very good for audio, fair for video.
Most difficult clamshell package I've ever encountered!

Summary: I've not yet used it. Will update review later, but for now, just want to say - it took me 15 minutes to open the package and I was concerned that I would damage the player or earbuds trying to cut it open or slash my own hand. It's in a clear (invisible!
