"Excellent value!"on by rfortson
Pros cost, size, capacity, sound, MSC
Cons lack of accessories, small display
Summary This is a great bargain at under $150. If you look for rebates, you can get it for even less. I like the small size, capacity, the fact that I only need WMP to organize my music and playlists (no extra software needed), the removable battery, and the sound. You can even charge via USB if need be. I transferred nearly 4 gb of music in about 30 minutes, so transfers are plenty fast for me. It can also be used to carry data files and such. It will show up as an external hard drive. I don't like the lack of accessories, even from Creative. There are NO cases for this thing, so you have to find your own. Controls are small, but work as advertised, and aren't that difficult to control. I'd consider them more a "neutral" than a "negative".
All in all, this is a great deal! Highly recommended.
Pros Fits in my pocket & holds all my songs for unbeatable price
Cons The first one I got was a lemon, but it was replaced at no charge
Summary I never go anywhere without my Muvo2. It fits nicely in my pocket while I walk around town, and I can hook it up to my stereo at home with a cheap ($8) adapter I got at Radio Shack. My only fear is losing it! If you're looking for something cheaaper (in relation to how many gigs you get for your dollar), smaller, and less trendy than an iPod, this is your best bet.Updated
The headphone jack totally crapped out on me after one year. Still functions perfectly well, but can can hear just an echo of the music playing. I did toggle from headphones to my home system with that jack, and I think it should be sturdy enough to handle that kind of action. Really, *really* not happy that it's not. Of course, it's not under warranty anymore so... I had to buy a brand new MP3 player (NOT a Muvo this time!).
Pros It is very compact. Very easy to take and add music, and amazing sound
Cons Button face is somewhat small, not as easy to navigate as other mp3 players
Summary This player has an amazing sound quality. It is very compact so you can slip it into your pocket on the go. It is not that easy to navigate songs but I have had no other problems. The battery can be replaced in the back which is helpful (unlike the iPod where you can not replace the battery yourself)
I love this little player...
Pros excellent sound, perfect size hard drive, good battery life
Cons Small controls, could buy the second gen. iPod mini for same price
Summary Great sound(of course from Creative), good battery life. Had some trouble with included software, but works with Microsoft's "Plays for Sure", so it works great with Windows Media Player 10. Only bad thing is that you need an adapter to play radio(sold sep.)
Pros You have to love the size. Whenever the "suck ins" talked about their iPod Minis, I just showed them how small mine was, how cheap mine was, and the (previous) great sound quality.
Cons Since it was small, the screen is very small and hard to read. It scrolled one song at a time. Did not have an Artist/Album/Genre sorter.
Summary I loved this mp3 player that I bough it about June/July(ish). It was extremely small and had an amazing sound quality. The small directional pad was at first a bit of a drag but its not a big deal once you actually use it. Its price was very good (about $200 online somewhere). An interesting capability is that is also a portable mini hard drive. If you have the cable and a USB drive with a computer, you can drag files in in a breeze for storage to take to another computer or whatever your heart desires.
Then around December/January time, the headphone jack basically went out. I have to hold it extrememly tight at this one perfect angle. It becomes an extreme pain if I ever wanted to actually use this player handsfree. The only drag about the sound quality was that with regular headphones the bass was not all that great. It is fixed with better (with bass) headphones that I borrowed from a friend to test out. I HATED the fact that it did not have a sorter to sort your files by Artist/Album/Genre, etc. You may think its ok, but its not ok when you have to spend alot of time either making folders on your mp3 player to make the files easier to find since its only a one line screen; or making playlists on your computer that you can drag but also become tiresome when your constanting deleting then re-sending it when you have to much changes to certain ones. The battery life was not all that great, but that was because I listened to it nonstop for a long time, and after I put it down for a little while, it was pretty good. I would have sent the player to get fixed but it only had a 3 month warranty.
I would like to recommend to buy this "lil bad boy", but I have an obligation not to.
I am seriously thinking about possibly the Zen Touch because of its great battery life (I've heard reports from users of 24-26 hours straight!), its nice price, and that even CNet says its a good Ipod match up. I am not leaning towards an Ipod. My friend has one and it scratches EXTREMELY easily, and once you get past the scroll wheel, the look and image is its only advantages.
I also thought about the Zen Micro, but its 5/6 gb models are near the same price as the Zen Touch and if I'm going to pay that much, I'd rather have more space.
