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: The Creative Labs Zen X-Fi2 follows the tradition of Creative Labs focus on detail and sound quality when its primary product line was PC sound cards. This MP3 offers memory expandability, and easy to use interface and easily sync with a PC to manage MP3 and videos. The Zen includes are very good quality internal speaker system, just don't expect $400 speaker quality. The USB cable and earbuds are well positioned.
Summary: Don't do what I did - buy a small internal memory player and then figure adding a large microSD card would extend it. Nope. It will take time to "build" up a library from the card every time you power up - and it will only play a single album. There's no support for playlists at all for files on the card. IF you want this product for music, you'll have to buy the internal size you need - and that's pricey.
Summary: By William C. Wright I tried to be short, but this review just kept on going! Sort of therapeutic to write. It's my first, I think. I hope it helps someone make a purchasing decision. I bought this for four main reasons: 1) It has a standard USB jack so would hook up easily to the existing set of speakers (high quality) that I purchased years ago to work with my old Creative Microphoto.
Summary: By S. Silverman This mp3 is labeled as 64 gigabytes, however, only 8k tracks are functional. I intended to put my entire cd collection on it but at around 32 gigabytes it stopped recording. The tech support suggested that I use the remaining space for video or pictures. I had not intended it for that use. If I had that information prior to purchase, I would not have bought the unit. I feel like this is bait and switch.
Summary: while the sound is incredible and it a a classy looking lil player the playlist and files system leave a lot to be desired. changing a playlist on the player is like pulling teeth in fact all file management on the unit is incredibly un user friendly so plan on doing it all while hooked to a pc once its set tho it rocks.
Summary: First off, I'll start by saying that I'm not really an audiophile. I EQ my music at times, and I freely use technologies like Sony's Clear Stereo and Creative's X-Fi Crystallizer that add coloration to the sound. So, purists who are vehemently against changing the audio signature in any way, and people who prefer a more "analytical" sound, this review probably won't work for you. For the rest of us, though, here are some impressions.
