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. My Zen also lasted about that long, but does do to falling into water while on rather than any problem with the player itself.
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. THANKS. I DID PURCHASE AT AMAZON IN 2010 AND I WANT TO STICK WITH IT BECAUSE I LOVE IT AND THE LITTLE DOCKING THING.
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 lockouts when loading tracks from my SD cards (tried several capacities and brands) and IMHO expandable memory is useless if is not reliable.
Summary: Creative Zen X-Fi is one of the few MP3 Players that has real bookmarking capability as well as an SD card for expansion. It allows you to stop listening to audible books or music and pick up where you left off at any future time even after using it for other things. I did a lot of research and this was the lowest cost unit with this capability. The sound is great and it is fairly easy to use and has good menu displays.
Summary: Very nice look & design. I,ve been using 2 Zen V Plus, 1 Zen & 2 Zen X-Fi. Zen V Plus has feature the others don't have. You can turn the screen off if you just listen to music. About Zen, good player, nice look & all the control are well placed. And about Zen X-Fi, the nice look doesn't work well. They moved the power button to the booney, it's really hard if you use the case designed for the product.
Summary: The player installs easily and is fairly easy to work. The sound is good from the speakers and great from the headphones. The buttons need to be labeled more clearly so you know how to get into different parts of the menu. The Creative Zen was a great no-nonsense mp3 player. This version of the Zen has more bells and whistles. I need a cheat sheet to navigate to different things because I can't remember how yet, but I'll get there.
Summary: I own several MP3 players including a Zune HD, Creative Vision:M, Creative Zen, and several small MP3 players. What can I say? I love music, and I hate what's happened to music on commercial radio. I have about 140 Gig of music on my PC, which is too much for any one player. So, I put a different genre on each player, then pick the player I want to listen to. For pure ease of use, it's the Zune every time.
Summary: This is a good little MP3 player. I bought the 8GB since I do not save a lot of Music on it. I am sure it will do fine for me for the time being. The one thing that I did not like about it is the software. Creative Centrale can be misleading. I had to experiment with it several times before I got the Music play list set up and the files transferred to the Player. Now we will see how well it is made. How long will it last.
