Creative Nomad Zen Xtra 60GB

PC Magazine
1 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Creative Labs Inc., us.creative.com $360 street 8.4 ounces; 60GB; Tested Battery Life: 10:06 Enormous capacity. Easy-to-replace battery. Large, legible screen. Interesting slow/fast playback. Big and heavy. Jog/selector switch ergonomics could be better. A competent player with interesting features and ample storage, but it's rather large.

  • Summary: A decent showing from Creative, but the Creative Zen 4GB suffers from comparison with Apple's ultra-desirable iPod nano. Video playback and the SD Card slot are plus points, however.
  • Pros: Includes SD Card slot, simple and effective interface
  • Cons: It looks and feels cheap when compared to Apple's nano, doesn't have a dedicated volume button

  • Summary: For videos, music, photos and more, you can't beat the Zen. It's one of the most versatile players on the market, it's well built and it'll give you many hours of enjoyment.
  • Pros: 2.5in screen, has FM and microphone functions, SD slot, silky video playback
  • Cons: Our MP4 files couldn't be transcoded for use on the player, ships with a short USB cable, a little heavy on the bass frequencies
