Summary: bought this to replace my creative Zen m when it died after a few years. Wanted something similar that worked with Napster go but without the bulk. Found this to be exactly what I needed and then some. It's easy to use, the sound quality is great, battery lasts a decent amount of time and I like how small and light it is. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants an mp3 player but doesn't want to go the iPod route.
Summary: I had one of these before and it got stolen, I tried several other newer players but I am coming back to this one. Sound Quality - Excellent, better than my 3 Ipods, and more max volume without sound clipping. Features - It plays videos and has a radio and such, but it really sells me on its equalizer, a REAL equalizer not just presets. If you want messaging and wifi and big video screen, get a smartphone.
Summary: i love this mp3. I had another one from Creative labs that I really loved but it came to the end of it's life span. I went right back to Creative labs for my next one. I did not have the money for the one I really wanted so I got this one because you can add memory later(when I have more money). I again am not disappointed. It is small so I can work with it. I download my audio books and music and listen to radio. Great!
Summary: The Zen X-Fi is really great and I can get lost in the sound quality when I relax and listen to my music, the radio, a movie or an audible book. The battery lasts for about 8 to 10 hours of continous use and so it lasts me all through my work shift and I charge it at night. I have thousands of pictures on mine and videos which I show off to anyone that will watch. This is my third one so that now my wife, my daughter and I all have one.
Creative Zen X-Fi 8 GB Video MP3 Player with Built-In Speaker (Black/Silver)

Summary: I've had the 8GB Creative Zen X-Fi for about 1 months and it's great. The sound quality is excellent - far better than an iPod! I listen mainly to classical music and the 'expander' feature makes it sound like a concert. I've not used the video feature yet (it was an added bonus as I mainly wanted it for music) but if it's anything like the 16GB (my friend has downloaded some TV episodes) then I have something to look forward to!
Summary: Got this MP3 player for when I exercise. I replaced a COBY player with touch screen. Unlike the COBY this player has buttons. I found the touch screen MP3 players to be difficult to use because it is too easy to change settings by touching the screen by accident. Product works great with terrific sound with the included ear buds. I only wish that it had a functioning armband as I understand that from the reviews that the arm band from creative does not work well.
Summary: I'll only post the cons as nearly everything about this player is perfect. I have no idea how to get the wifi working. It feels a little cheap but i've already dropped it a few times from waist height onto concrete with not a scratch or any problems. It comes with only the USB cord as a charger which I find quite annoying. Making a playlist of multiple albums and artists seems to not be possible, which doesn't really make sense so I'm hoping it's my own error.
Summary: When looking for a new mp3 player I knew I didn't want to spend $150+ on an Ipod or Zune. I didn't need anything special, I just needed a new player with more storage space. I was just about to buy a sony walkman at a local store when I decided to check the internet first. Within a few minutes I found this player and i'm glad I did. I have always loved creative's pc sound cards and their x-fi technology and this player doesn't disappoint.
