"Great Player - However read this first!"3.5 starson by brownlove
Pros: Lovely design - Display contrast is clear and readable.
Cons: Works with Windows XP only (in US) + confusing organizer and no cradle or case.
Summary: I've had the player for 1 week now. It looks great and feels great. It's a bit heavy - but feels substantial. It's got great sound and the Headphones really deliver that great sound.
It only works with Windows XP (in the US) according to customer service at Creative. At the time I bought it, the website said it worked with Windows 98se and up. I'm a Win 2000 professional user - luckily I have another computer (not my main one) running XP. Oh well. Also the included software is a bit confusing in it's organization, and it doesn't mirror all the available options in the player itself. So either I'm not using the software correctly, or it's not worth using. Configuring options on the player itself is a bit of a challenge as well. After about 20 minutes or so you should get the hang of it. Also my package didn't come with a cradle or carrying case. Guess that's why I got a Deal at BestBuy ($187). Anyway, I'm truly loving my gospel music. I'm very interested in uploading audiobooks to the player as well. Make sure to purchase an extended warranty, and get a case from Podsplus.com. Everything gets dropped - don't have this player looking as bad as your cell phone. Hope this review helps.
