Be careful of buying any Creative MP 3 players if you have Windows 8 or 8.1

Summary: I used to like this MP 3 player - that is, until I upgraded to Win8.1 The Creative Centrale management software for the player no longer works. Creative does not support Win 8 or 8.1, and after writing to them, they apparently have no plans to release any patches or firmware to support the newest PC...
Summary: DO NOT....I repeat DO NOT buy this item. I was able to load songs on it and they did play. but then it started locking up. You never knew when ansd where but it would lock up and not turn off, not play not do anything. I tried resetting it with pin a could times to no avail.
Summary: I got the Zen XFi2 to replace a Zen Creative that gave out. I loved my previous Zen Creative. Ultimately I choose this device over an Apple product because it offered greater flexiblity checking out audio books from my local library.
Summary: Just average. It's quite tedious to import music from my hard drive's folders. The ear piece plug must be inserted just right ---- if too deep you won't hear anything. The touch screen is too sensitive and imprecise. I like the large storage capacity.
Summary: Fist impression build quality not as good as I'd expected. But then the price was about 100 bucks. Screen was fairly responsive. Had problems setting volume right where I wanted to. Sound quality was Great, I'm not real pickey though and listen mostly to audio books.
Summary: The touchscreen is just plain unusable, thus making the product unusable. And this is after installing the latest firmware that creative says fixes the problem. To me there isn't any enthusiasm in the design, very plain, crappy features.
Summary: I received this mp3 player as a gift and I really love it. I have had it for a while now and it hasn't let me down. It is super thin and lightweight like a cell phone. Therefore, you can easily put it in a pocket and it isn't bulky. It's sleek and durable, even though it doesn't weigh a lot.
