Lost it because you eliminated the hole for the cord to go around my neck while listening.

Summary: I have used these little Creative audio players for years to listen to books and literally wore out my original Zen V Plus and Zen stones, which I had for many years. This new one was to be one of several replacement items since I like to have at least 3 players at a time. A negative is that the manual is not informative and does not explain what you are able to do with the player. It took too much time to figure out how to get rid of shuffle because of the poor manual.
Summary: I bought this player to replace an earlier model and was slightly disappointed because the older model was easier to operate and had an FM radio feature. This one unfortunately, does not have the FM feature.
Summary: I bought this particular mp3 player because it fell into my budget and had expandable memory. It seemed like the best way to go for the moment when I decided I wanted a player that was large enough for my music collection. Instead of paying the few hundred dollars it would take to get me Ipod or Zune with large internal memory, I bought this and a 32 GB memory card for it. I think that this would probably be good for someone who is only a casual user.
Summary: First of all I don't understand how this is on here for $300- I bought this exact model brand new from the Creative online store for $100 a long time ago. Either way, if possible, buy the older version (not the MX). With the MX you won't be able to play videos (at least from an SD card) unless they are in CMV format, and you can't convert any videos to that format without buying the software to do so.
Summary: by mistake i bought this one second hand. It shipped with very low quality headphones and no documentation at all. The fm radio did not worked properly until i gave it an firmware upgrade. I wanted to buy a sturdy mp3 player as im traveling all the time and i have broken so many ipods that is hard to keep track how many.
Summary: I started with a Zen V Plus which I enjoyed very much. Unfortunately, I squished it a year later. Anyway, I purchased the MX 16GB and it performed mostly well for 2 years. I say "mostly" because my PC and it have not always integrated well. First, the Creative Centrale program has one issue at start-up. I have found I can't begin working with it immediately, but have to wait until it finishes scanning for new files.
Summary: Good price, good design and factory quality, very good audio quality, the battery guarantees about 10-12 hours playing (the theoretical 20 hours are very optimistic) BUT Touch works very badly, low output volume, playlist system doesn't work well with all pc player (if you create a playlist with mediaplayer on creative say that it is empty, i have to use winamp to create a working playlist), the random playing doesn't work Conclusion: It's a good low cost player..
Summary: I purchased a refurbished unit which froze up after three weeks during a firmware update. It's been returned from warranty service and I'm crossing my fingers that it will continue working. Its the second refurbished unit I've bought from Creative; the first one served me well for many years. I bought this recent one for additional capacity. I also like the display, navigation, and sound.
Summary: I decided to trade in the 8GB Ipod Nano I had purchased a couple of years ago and purchase the Zen Style M100. It was a cheaper mp3 to start, but it also provided an even cheaper way to increase its capacity. The addition of a micro SD card would allow up to 32 extra GBs than I had with the Nano. This model does not have the ease-of-use that Ipods do, so starting it up was only slightly more time consuming.
