Summary: It's not as good as the X-Fi 2 was, and I'm having this problem with charging it: it always turns on and can't be turned off. It's inconvenient, and it makes me sad to know my favorite brand for MP3 players is basically no more.
Summary: One word description: Putrid. I use a player almost exclusively for listening to Audible books. The touch buttons are ridiculous. There is no bookmarking which I can live with since Audible books remember where you left off. They say you can fast forward/rewind using the up and down buttons. Maybe.
The ZEN X-Fi 3 is a Downgrade, Compared to it's Older Music Players
31 August 2014
Summary: I purchased the Creative ZEN X-Fi 3 8GB MP3 and Video Player with Touchscreen, Bluetooth, and FM Radio (Black), in 2012. I have purchased other ZEN players in the past, and this is by far the worst MP3 Player I have ever received from Creative Labs.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Sony walkman the only other mp3 i've owned was a Zen which I was hooked on as I owned five of, as I'm pretty rough on them. Creative apparently no longer makes the zen so I went with the X-Fi.
Summary: ..... I've had it for maybe a year now. It's not TOO shabby: COULD be better under various conditions though. For some reason, paired with the Creative WP-250 Active Bluetooth Headphones anyway, the music has a tendency to cut in and out, or sometimes sputter like a vinyl LP that the needle skips...
Summary: I have to say that, as pleased as I was with my original Creative Zen product, I am thoroughly disgusted with the X-Fi3. 1. They don't sell belt clips or any way to hold the device while running or at the gym. 2. It's a nightmare to try to create playlists.
Summary: I purchased this used ZEN--Fi 3 8 GB MP3 , from Itembazaar.com inc (216) 342-4491 23350 Mercantile Rd Ste 102 Beachwood, OH 44122-5921 and when i opened the package i noticed when i was looking at it and turning it upside down to look at the buttons n what not i noticed something sounded loose...
Summary: tried to use it on my bike with a bluetooth amp...drops bluetooth halfway through each song...connected to the jack input and it's erratic also...my Samsung S4 phone works flawlessly... this thing is crap
