Great Player

Pros: Great mp3 player; does the job well. A really nice feature is the DJ option; allows selection of a random album of the day. Another nice thing is the radio option. Flash disk is nice, so dropping is not a major concern. (Although obviously don't drop electronics. duh)

Cons: None

Nice MP3 player

Pros: Very nice design. Good sound quality. Small and lightweight. Long battery life (8+ hours of audio), have not used player for video yet so can't speak to battery life when watching mpeg/wmv files.

Cons: I've owned it for over 2 weeks now and it froze once the 2nd day I had it. As all functions are useless when it freezes (including turning if off), I had to use a VERY small paperclip to 'reset' the player. After updating the firmware and resetting the player, it's been working flawlessly.

The earbuds are very uncomfortable and obviously of not high quality. Strongly recommend using your own headphones or purchasing an alternative pair.

Other Thoughts: For the money, this player is a good buy. I use it every day on the subway and while at work for 8+ hours without worrying about recharging.

Also, might be a good idea to carry around a safety pin or very thin paperclip in the event your player freezes. Again, it only happened once so far and my firmware upgrade seemed to fix the problem.

Once it breaks it gone

Pros: It works Great! and is the size of a credit card, very nice item.
i would buy it again over the new version.

Cons: Creative "help / Tech support" is the worst waste of time, i don't even see why they have a support line and its mostly done by emails, i did find a phone number, but by what was said in the email i found no point to try calling. you need a "CCPP" Plan to get a replacement battery or a new screen or what ever your problem might be, so just trash it once it breaks.

Other Thoughts: had mine for a little over a year and the battery gave out, yet the other two are holding up nicely. Great product bad support.

Great MP3 Player

Pros: Great Price, Tons of Options, Looks Fantastic, and Nice Size

Cons: Sometimes can be a bit confusing as I can play an artist and have it show 15 songs, then open the artists albums and count all the songs in there and there will only be 10 or 11. And the only way to get those extras to play is to play all on that artist. (those were example numbers)

Other Thoughts: Good alternative to an iPod, I like mine a lot.

cheaper than iPod

Pros: It's cheaper than an iPod, it's small, it works well, and it supports audio, video, and AM/FM tuner.

Cons: It freezes up a lot, the included headphones aren't that great, and transferring music to it can be annoying, especially if you have xp64.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for an inexpensive flash-based mp3 player, this is the way to go. It's small enough to easily fit in just about any pocket, without being too small to see the screen. Don't know if I just got a dud, but I've trained myself to carry around a paper clip to reset it when it randomly freezes, which is about once every week or two. Similar to issues I've had with the Nanos... I thought flash memory was supposed to be more reliable?

Get it!

Pros: Very small, easy to use, very lightweight, and it works flawlessly.
