2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing. Great remote, unbelievably slow interface.
I have a Turtle Beach AudioTron, but wanted a device where I had more flexibility with the remote and the display. In that regard, the Wireless Music delivers; the remote is far easier to read than the AudioTron's display, and it's nice to be able to use the Wireless Music's RF remote places that are outside of line-of-sight but still within listening distance.

Problem is, the unit is unusably slow with a large MP3 collection. I'm not talking laggy, or a few-second wait for certain actions -- loading a large playlist (1000+ MP3s) or selecting a genre with a large number of MP3s to play randomly can easily take *5 minutes* to queue up. While the device would seem to work fine for people who only have a collection of a few hundred MP3s or only use small playlists, it's maddening with a large one. I spoke to Creative technical support, and they indicated that my experience was due to limitations of the device.

Close, but no cigar. Hopefully, the next generation will be more capable; I like the interface a lot.

4-0 out of 5 stars Early product but ready for prime time
I had a few hiccups trying to get the Creative Wireless Music to operate consistently with my wireless network. In the end, I adjusted my network to accomodate the Sound Blaster. My network was WEP encrypted and configuring the SB to fit in, it would often not communicate with the wireless router, a D-link DI-624 502.11g router. My laptop connection which was previously stable now started to flake out. I am not sure what the interactions were but after playing with a lot of settings, the whole network just worked a lot better without the WEP encryption. To protect my home network somewhat, I disabled SSID broadcast and also enabled MAC address filtering to allow only my wireless devices access to the network and no other. The SB Wireless Music receiver remote has the MAC address in the "info" section. All seems to work flawlessly. I should add though that I don't live in an urban setting where my wireless network needs pretty stiff protection.

My large MP3 collection doesn't have the best ID3 tags. This is really a big problem as it's hard to navigate without proper tags. I'm currently in the process of using Ultra Tag Editor to get my collection in order. I think the navigation on the SB Wireless Music is pretty great with a lot of different options to find just what you want.

Firmware 5/04, works great. The remote is a lot more responsive. What I don't like is that sometimes the remote freezes or doesn't do anything and their is no error message. In some cases, the location of my Mp3's changed or file names changed but it would be nice to know why the device is freezing up.

Sound is excellent. I use the optical SPDIF output to my digital decoder preamp.

I have been waiting for a product like this for quite some time. The SB has some quirks but is nonetheless more or less what the doctor ordered. Best of all, I got it for $160 at a major online retailer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another fine product from Creative
Of the devices in this category, this one certainly looks the best! It has a sleek modern look, which goes along with its function. But, as in everything else in life, that physical beauty is only skin deep. The beauty in this device is in what it does!

I was not disappointed that it does dot play streaming audio from the internet, or my movies from my computer. Being in the Army and being faced with lengthy deployments to miserable places, I purchased a Creative Nomad Zen Xtra 40GB MP3 player so I could take all of my CD's with me to enjoy. And then I came across this bad daddy- what an awesome concept. A wireless receiver that will hook into my wireless network and play all of the MP3's in my computer! So I bought it.

Fortunately for me, it has not performed as the numerous reviews state. It has been fantastic. (1) Getting setup. Easy, but could have been easier. I had to manually configure the device to connect to my 802.11g WEP enabled network. Automatic would have been slick, but this also gave me the chance to be hands on, and learn about the wireless network which was also new to the house with this device. (2) Connectivity. No problems here. I live in a modern German apartment building- constructed of steel and concrete. There are two walls and a kitchen between the receiver and the network hub, and it has never lost its connection. Playback has been flawless. (3) Function. Hmm. Here's where it starts to lose a little ground. Why does it take 3-5 seconds to finds the next song when advancing the playlist with the remote? The manufacturer could probably improve this performance with a firmware update. I am not a programmer, but that seems to fix other MP3 products! But, the sound through my stereo is awesome, true to life and very dynamic. And, I have yet to suffer any electronic "glitches" during playback. (4) Features. I don't care that it doesn't play my pictures through the TV or streaming internet audio. I didn't buy it for that. It does what I bought it for and does it well. (5) Network connection. Yes this device is 802.11b and will slow down a "g" network. But Creative thoughtfully has given it an autooff feature, when you dont use it, it turns off and drops out of the network, ensuring that you will maintain the highest rates of through put for data at the other stations. And who cares if it is "b," when I am listening to music I am not surfing the net or playing networked games.

I would definitely recommend this product. But, be prepared to manually "connect" the device to your network and for long lags between songs when manually advancing the playlists. Other than that, enjoy this beautiful new addition your home A/V system!

3-0 out of 5 stars NEEDS MORE WORK TO WORK!
The good things:
1) The product looks cool and is very compact.
2) It was VERY easy to install on my existing wireless network.
3) It works to some limited extent, but not what I was expecting.

The bad things:
1) The remote barely works in the same room, nevermind in a different room. And it locks up every now and then.
2) There seems to be no way to play all tracks on random without creating a "playlist." A pain.
3) After creating a playlist with about 7000 MP3s, there is no easy way (or any way) to add new songs to an existing playlist w/o creating a new playlist.
4) When starting my playlist and setting it at random, the first song is always the same, and takes literally five minutes to load and then start playing.

No great, not horrible. Three stars.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lots of pros, but one con too many
Pros:
1) Don't need to point the remote at the base unit for it to work.
2) Does not require a TV, since all browsing is done on remote.
3) Fast browsing on remote even for large (10,000+ songs) collections (with firmware update).
4) Excellent software for both the remote and the PC. Users of Creative sound cards or portable mp3 players may already be familiar with Mediasource.
5) Great sound quality.

Cons:
1) My unit would occasionally lose the network connection, sometimes right in the middle of a song. This did not happen often, but it was enough that I returned it. I updated firmware for this and my Linksys router and access point. It may have been poor placement of the device (inside a stereo cabinet), but that is where I wanted to put it.
2) No capability for wired ethernet (it is wireless only). Since my home is wired for ethernet, I have a jack by my stereo. If the Creative device had a wired ethernet port, I may have not returned it.
3) RF Remote should be able to have better range. It will operate slightly farther away than standard infrared devices, and it does not require line-of-sight. However, an RF remote should work most anywhere in the house, in my opinion). Mine worked only in the room with the base, and in the adjacent room.
4) Creative's technical support is among the worst in the industry.
5) Although Mediasource is good software, it is required that you import your music into it. Some competing devices will simply ask you what folders contain your music, and you don't have to import anything.
6) Having good ID3v2 tags is critically important for the software, because you can't browse by folder and file name. I tried Ultra Tag Editor based on another review here, and found it extremely useful for getting my tags in order.
7) No support for pictures or video. Some competing devices support more than just music.
8) RF remote codes can not be programmed or learned by other remotes. But, you would need the LCD screen on the remote anyway. Competing products have standard infrared remotes and require a TV for music browsing instead of doing it on the remote.
9) Playlists must be setup in Mediasource. You can't use standard m3u format playlists in Mediasource, and you can't use Mediasource playlists with other software.

I ended up returning this and purchasing the Linksys WMA11B. The Linksys device is working perfectly for me because I can use a wired ethernet connection (wireless is optional). It also supports pictures(JPG, BMP, etc), and I can program the remote codes in my Philips Pronto (TSU-2000) remote. It does not require importing songs into any software, and you can browse by folder and file name. It will also play playlists in the standard m3u format.

One drawback to the Linksys is that you have to be in front of the TV to change or pause the music. The browsing interface is also better on the Creative device. It is far easier to assemble a custom playlist using the remote with the Creative device. The Linksys is pretty much limited to selecting all songs of a particular artist, album, genre, folder, etc. The creative will allow you to queue individual or groups of songs on the remote any way you want to.

Also if you browse artists on the Linksys, you have to scroll through all artists starting with the beginning of the alphabet. With my collection, you could be scrolling for a while. On the Creative, after browsing artists I am prompted with the letters A through Z for the first letter of the artist's name. So, I could scroll down to "R" and quickly get to the "Rolling Stones" without a lot of scrolling, for example. These browsing issues weren't as important to me, since I will probably setup playlists on my PC most of the time. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Webcam NX is a piece of &*!#&*%
Software EXTREMELY difficult to install. Hardware crashes computer. If you use WIN98SE, look elsewhere because this so-called webcam is not for you. Yeeccchh!

4-0 out of 5 stars Worked great for me!
I bought this camera for my laptop because I WAS frugal and didn't want to spend a lot of money on the only laptop camera out there. I found it to be a great camera for the price! It focused well, and the software loaded on just fine. Terrific little buy!

1-0 out of 5 stars Works great... when it works!
Don't bother! (...)Other than [the] critical failing, the camera works fine. Good video, no need to focus, set light levels, colors, anything. The interface is easy to use and intuitive. Easy to configure. If all you want is a webcam that gets your pearly whites on the internet, this will do it for you.

When it will do it for you.

One other thing... it SAYS that it will E-mail pictures as it snaps them, but this is only if you have some funky Microsoft mailer program. Gotcha!

Bottom line: Try something else.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good.
This is my first webcam purchase...I'd say the cameras good... good picture quality... But theres one thing I don't like and I've seen it in the other reviews. That Tripod, Its a pain to mess with when its sitting down.Other than that,for 25.00 not bad at all!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad camera for the price, but....
I bought this camera for the purpose of using it as a web cam with MSN Messenger. It certainly works for that. I have not had any problems with it. It was easy to install (with Windows XP Pro) and was up and running in minutes. The software has a few neat options including WebCam Monitor which allows you to configure the camera to take photos at user-defined time intervals and upload them to a web site automatically.

The stand is a little different then other cameras, but works good for my laptop computer. It would also work well if used on top of a flat screen monitor. It probably wouldn't be the best for for a CRT monitor or if mounting on the desk.

My only complaints are the image quality and lack of a microphone. The image quality really isn't bad, but I have an older Intel camera which delivers a much sharper image. I was a little disappointed in the quality of the image, but then I paid less then 30 bucks for it. I paid much more for the Intel camera. For the price, I guess it isn't a bad camera.

I have never used any any of the Logitech cameras, but they are supposedly very good...however, they are a little more expensive too. I did notice that some of the Logitech cameras also have built-in microphones (like the Logitech USB QuickCam Messenger) which would be a big selling point for me, so you may want to give that some thought. I wish my camera had a microphone. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Hmmm...
It is not up to the expectation of that I have thought about this hardware but i will watch over this slowly.

2-0 out of 5 stars interference problems
This card looks very fine on paper en sounds also pretty good.
The only problem is that the card is nor working properly in my system.I have four western digital 740 sata disks in my system
this sound card picks up noise when i reading or writing to the disks this is very disturbing. I replaced the card with another
simpler card and everything works oke.

5-0 out of 5 stars great system
the two reviews below criticising this card are written by the same person. if you look around this person has written one star reviews of almost all new creative lab products using the same language, eg: "for crying out loud I am a computer engineer."

this is one of the best card combo's on the markjet and professional reviewers say so. if the person below is learnign how to use a computer and installing their first card (and that is clearly the case from the "format" comments), they should take a breath and think about their own issues, not those of creative labs.

1-0 out of 5 stars It's all true...
The guy before me is completely correct. I received this card and installed it in my board, tried to load the drivers but I kept getting the "Blue screen of death." By this time I was thinking it must be win2k(BTW, I did have SP2). I formatted my whole hard drive and put XP Pro on with all updates SP1 and all. I loaded the drivers and everything was going smoothly, it recognized the card and said it was working properly. So I go to test and it doesn't work, at all. So then I formatted again to get a fresh start and the same exact thing happened. I have the Soyo Dragon Platinum MB w/ P4 2.4 GHz. If you have the same chipset I do or close to it, look elsewhere. The customer support is terrible and they make it seem like you're the idiot and didn't install it right or anything. A complete waste of time, I'm sending this nightmare back and getting a Hercules digifire.

2-0 out of 5 stars Reformat
Junk, absolute junk. Don't even try to complain to Creative. Talk about a bunch of losers. If you have a soundblaster already installed, you might as well reformat to get the new one to work. I am a computer engineer for crying out loud. The soundblaster uninstall does not work, and you can spend forever trying to track down all the files that need to be deleted so that your new card will install correctly, but you will never find them all.

EDIT: To electronicsfan, I searched Amazon for every creative product that I had personally installed on my computer or people that I work with, and I wrote a review based upon my experiences. I have no affiliation with Greg. Search for my reviews on Creative speakers to find more truths about Creative products. To be fair to creative, they finally squared me away on the speaker issue (1 year later). However, I stand by my word when I say that if you have an older soundblaster installed, you will have to reformat to get an Audigy to work properly, if at all. After the hassle, it is a fine card. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Bathtub
Essentially, this is the entry-level, 16-bit audio Creative Labs sound card. It has a built-in mock '3D' stereo effect, a 128-voice MIDI wavetable, and it can sample at up to 48khz in 16-bit stereo, and that's about all there is to it. Whilst it doesn't do anything wrong in itself (it's plug-and-play, so if you're using Windows it should work out of the box), the Soundblaster Live isn't much more expensive, and offers environmental audio.

If you only dabble with music and don't play many new games it's a perfectly adequate solution, however.

5-0 out of 5 stars An effective basic soundcard
I keep a lot of computer equipment at home, due to the fact that I am an A+ technician working to complete my MCSE (microsoft certified systems engineer) credentials. I bought a pre-owned computer from ebay last month in order to practice setting up computer networks at home. This particular computer is a business-class desktop, designed more for the office environment rather than the typical entertainment PC that we would normally have at home. I decided to add DVD capability to this system, in order to enjoy a movie at my work desk whenever the mood strikes me to take a break from work (which happens quite frequently). I added a Sony DVD player, this particular Soundblaster soundcard, and a pair of Cambridge Soundworks speakers. Within thirty minutes, I was watching The Lord of Rings.

Now, about the Soundblaster. This is a very good Soundcard for its intended purpose. Which is to provide basic sound functionality to a desktop computer. The sound quality is good enough to enjoy listening to stereo sounds from music CDs and DVDs. But please, do not expect this card to provide you with theatre-like surround sound quality. This is definitely the wrong price range if you need that kind of quality.

I compared the sound quality of this office system to my primary home system. My home system is a Dell Dimension 8200, with a Turtle Beach Soundcard and the Altec Lansing surround system. I switched the mode of operation of the Altec Lansings from surround to stereo for comparison purposes between the two systems. Subjectively, you can definitely tell the difference between the two.

I can recommend this Soundblaster to anyone who is simply looking to add stereo sound to his or her desktop computer. It is inexpensive and easy to install. It will require the use of one of your PCI slots. For your information, I installed this card on an IBM 300PL desktop PC. The system has a Pentium III processor and 128 MB of RAM. It is running an evaluation copy of Windows 2000 Advanced Server. The DVD player is a Sony DDU1621 and the Monitor is a KDS 17 inch flat screen CRT. If you are interested, I wrote reviews on the KDS monitor and the Sony DVD player, here at Amazon.

2-0 out of 5 stars Drivers are unreliable
I installed this card in a new home built computer. When I got Windows XP installed the sound came on and sounded fine with the generic drivers provided by Windows XP. I then proceeded to install the drivers that came with the sound card. After installing the Creative drivers I discovered the sound on some of my games was distorted. I rolled back the drivers to the generic XP drivers and the sounds returned to normal. The only problem is I have no access to the advanced features in the audio control panel. I can adjust volume control but I have no way to adjust the treble or bass or other effects. If I reinstall the Creative drivers those functions return but then so does the distortion.

3-0 out of 5 stars Be careful what is written on the box
I purchased the Creative Sound Blaster 16 PCI card to replace my built in sound engine. The installation was simple, typical of a pci card. The inclosed directions to install the card were ample to do the job. They sell these items at Walmart so I took a look at the box before coming back to Amazon and buying at a better price. It does say on the box this card is Windows XP compatible. It will work but the drivers on the installation disk are not Microsoft "signed" which means you must force the driver installation. Again, not a big thing, Windows XP took the drivers and the card worked fine. Typical of using any software or hardware in Windows XP, it is a good idea to go online immediately for an XP compatable/updated driver. That I did, found one from Creative's website; downloaded and installed it. Here is where you must be very careful. My very latest version of Windows XP/SP1 loaded this latest driver and then the sound system promptly shutdown. No sound at all came from the speakers. I rebooted a couple of times thinking the reset would correct the problem. It didn't nor did XP indicate a problem with the hardware or driver in the system/hardware file. Fortunately XP allowed me to go back to the earlier driver and the sound was back on. So if you have Windows XP and this card, be sure not to destroy the installation cd because Creative's new driver does not work on XP, at least not on mine.

The sound from the card is just fine. I don't really see much of a difference between this card and my original onboard AC97 engine but I spent the money so I'll keep it. Maybe a new set of speaks will help.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible performance! No way to uninstall!
Even though this is a very low end card, I expected performance at least on par with the integrated sound. Unfortunately, I was disappointed to find that the sound stuttered badly, especially in games and during playback with Windows Media Player. I wasn't upset, however, until I tried to uninstall the drivers (for the purpose of installing my higher end sound card), when I discovered that all uninstall efforts crashed my computer. I have tried to uninstall several different ways (with the help of 2 different Creative technical support folks and the Creative knowledge base), and the drivers are STILL installed! Needless to say, if I ever get these drivers off, I will be purchasing a sound card from a different manufacturer. ... Read more

Unless u are experienced with this stuff (I am a newby) read the book 'getting started' and do the tutorials. right from tuturiol 1, could not get midi output setup using a dell 4500 with analog device soundmax integrated digital audio card. after reading manuals and faq on and off line got no answer. long wait to get tech support on phone. once there he stepped me thru quickly (it starts with options-audio-advanced-check mme) .found tutorials are good, but need more subjects covered, such as how to use the drum machine, etc. in covering subjects, had questions and emailed for tech support and after couple days, per inquiry, got good support for answers.
Wanted midi input which soundmax integrated card could not do, so upgraded to soundblaster live 5.1. somewhere along the way audio files were corrupted, evidenced by delays and then sort of echo pulses on the audio tracks. it took another call to tech support to have him talk me thru the fix. I think I have the bugs worked out now.
Recording capabilities of software are phenomenal when compared to the analog tape tascam porta 05 studio which has been only other recording experience. The speed of actually getting recordable material is a quantum leap above the tascam. Abilities to patch in a wide range of instruments, sounds and sound effects from a midi keyboard are a stand alone piece of equipment in themselves. Precision editing capabilities are superb.
Give it 5 for capabilities and 3 for tech backup for overall of 4. Highly recommended and as I see it, the best bang for the buck for someone like me who wants to record his own music, but be prepared for some startup pains.

5-0 out of 5 stars Grat all-around card
I got this card to go with my Creative 5.1 speaker system (5200). This card is great! I can hear no crackles or extra noise. If you are going to use yours with DVD's than this is the card for you. It takes you right into the action especialy with movies that are 5.1 compatible. Games sound great. I especily like playing around with the included software. It comes with Creative play center but you don't have to use it (I use WMP). The only thing i don't like about the SB Live! 5.1 is I can't get the center channal to work, mabey i just don't have it set-up right.

If you have the $ You should upgrade to the Audigy series. but the SB is still good all-around.

1-0 out of 5 stars Okay with Intel but you can do better
The SBLive works fine on my P4. Do get the latest drivers from the and don't use those on the CD. Things never worked out on the AMD machine, I finally went to a Turtle Beach card there, and it was very straightforward. Creative's tech support was not friendly, unhelpful ("Windows is corrupted, you need to reinstall your OS"). Okay if you don't have anything to do for two weekends (one waiting for tech support to respond (for want of a better word) to your question and another to reinstall the OS. Formatting and reinstalling does fix issues but life really shouldn't be this hard. The product *is* adequate if not stellar but tech support is unavailable, unfriendly, and unhelpful.

1-0 out of 5 stars Problems with motherboards with VIA chipset
It seems that this is a real problem. This card doesn't work with most VIA chipsets (that means AMD processors). My computer freeze often and only the reset button is available :).
I tryed all the drivers found on Internet. The results are negative. So, there is anybody who wants to buy a lazy soundblaster? I think this is the worst soundblaster I had.

1-0 out of 5 stars This card sucks
Don't waste your money, this card sucks no matter what angle you look at it from. My major problem was...well lets see it's probably the fact that after a week of usage i baught a new mother board cause my other one was broken. And low and behold with my luck I transfer the sound card and i start up the computer install windows and it don't work. It tells me it's not there even though it is, i've tried it in all my PCI slots and even in some other computers and it's just broken. So i turned to the tech support and they didn't help one bit, they gave me stupid reasons and obvious things that I already did and checked. It's like they know absoloutly nothing about computers over there. They tell me to change slots and make sure it's plugged in all the way, things any computer user would check and do first. I mean tech support is supposed to help you with things that are really messed up, not give you easy answers anyone would have tried right away. So in conclusion I say this card is poor quality and the sound ain't that great in the first place, SAVE YOUR MONEY! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars For Value and Flexibility
The Muvo2 is not my first "compactflash" mp3 player. My NEX IIe with 512mb compactflash still function perfectionly after 2 years of daily usage after numerous drops. So with such background here is my review on the Muvo2.

PROS:

*Under $200 ... got it for $188 shipping included
*Very light ... light
*High Volume Sound..you can damage your hearing with this player
*USB2 Connection ...fast data transfer
*Charging Without Adaptor ...just use the mini USB2 connection
*External Drive ...can store any type of data
*Long-life Replaceable Battery ...that's the way it should
*Sound Quality ...excellent.
*4Gig Microdrive Extraction ...it will come in handy


CONS:

*Carrying Case ...nothing to brag about...velcro cover for this small player...very dumb.
*Buttons ...poor designed especially the On/Off.
*Playlist Management and Navigation ...primitive.


So why is the Muvo2 for me? Well it all comes to value, flexibility, and personality. Got it at a deal for way under $200 shipping included. I have a iPAQ H2215 and the NEX IIe so if I do get bore with this I can alway use the 4gig Microdrive.
I will never buy an Ipod...it's over priced and why getting something where everyone has it.


Conclusion: If you're a white-tanktop-constantly-looking-at-yourself- in-the-mirror type of a guy then go with the iPOD Mini but if you're a I-come-to-the-gym-to-lift-and-not-looking-pre tty type of a guy then go with the Muvo2.




2-0 out of 5 stars Good bang for your buck if you get it under $150.00
First, yes, I am an iPod user. That's important for me to admit because users of the Apple iPod never like other MP3 players since the iPod is such a high quality, attractive, easy to use device.

I bought one of these MuVo^2 devices to use at work where I'm afraid my $400 iPod will get stolen. I just got the MuVo^2 today but I've used it enough to give a simple review. Simply put, it's a decent MP3 player with great storage capacity for its size.

Pros: High capacity 4GB Hitachi MicroDrive inside a small player (2.5 inches square); removable LiIon battery; lightweight; excellent sound quality for an MP3 player; very simple to copy music onto it in Windows -- You don't need any special software, just Windows Explorer!

Cons: The included protective nylon case is about useless since it's so rigid and doesn't give you access to the buttons; the buttons on the unit are difficult to press with big man fingers; the interface feels chunky making it hard to find songs and do other functions like lock the unit's keys; it's relatively ugly and made of cheap-feeling plastic when compared to the new iPod Mini (its direct competitor); its LCD screen is backlit but poorly making it difficult to read in the dark; the LCD screen is tiny (about two or three lines of text at most).

All in all, I say it's a decent MP3 player. If you just want a really cheap Hitachi MicroDrive, it's easy to open this up and remove the drive from inside for use in your digital camera. As an MP3 player, though, it's definitely just "so-so". I would never EVER recommend you pay the full $200 for it. If you're already preparing to pay $200, pay $50 more to get an iPod Mini and you'll have no regrets.

4-0 out of 5 stars Little dissapointed...
Looks like this ended up being a verion 2 unit... too bad, very nice MP3 player though, but not the "original". For my purposes did not matter though. Great player!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Player
Recently I was in the market for an mp3 player, and was deciding between an iPod mini, or this muvo2. After much research, I decided on the muvo2 for a few reasons. Firstly, after hearing so many complaints about the iPod's lack of a removable battery, I liked the removable one on this player. Just ask anyone who has owned an iPod for more than a year how much their battery life has diminished. In addition, my friends have both of these players. After comparing the sound quality, I would definitely recommend the muvo2. However, it does not come with this out of the box, and you need to adjust the equalizer. After doing this, the muvo2 sounds far greater than the iPod mini. The only complaint I have, is that at first, its two line screen can make it hard to organize 4 gigabytes of music. Ease of organization is where the iPod excels. However, I've found that after downloading the beta version of Windows Media Player 10, it is much easier to organize music because of the new file system it creates on the player through the synchronization feature. It is still no iPod, but it is definitely adequate. I would suggest ditching the included Media Source software. The bundled earbuds aren't great, but they never are on any player. In all, I love my muvo2 and and am completely satisfied with my decision. And in the end, I especially love how it is about half the size of the iPod mini and comes with a belt clip.

4-0 out of 5 stars Compelling capacity outweighs fumbling and bundling.
The four stars are strictly for the following:
-4Gb hard drive, which alone is a $300 item in bulk;
-WMA and MP3 playback;
-nice LCD interface;
-USB 2.0 speeds for really fast xfer rates;
-instantaneous recognition by WinXP/2k machines.

Those features above make this an outstanding player, and should make this a 5-star item. However:
-the enclosed headphones are earbuds, I don't like 'em;
-it isn't armored enough for decent shock-resistance (would like to see it rubber-skinned like its cousin the Rio Cali);
-no belt-loop holster or anything like an armband, so exercising with it might be a little challenging;
-FM headphone function is extra (boo!);
-controls are dexterity-building exercises in themselves.

This thing has an LCD screen, so why not use a thumb-wheel with pushbutton ability to handle on/off and playback? Granted, it has a four-way pad and a separate button which should be sufficient, but my banana-sized fingers keep jumping selections to "Menu" instead of scrolling left or right through the playlist.

Here's why this is so critical: this player can hold 500-1000 songs, depending on how dense the encoding is. Navigating through a straight list of 500 or 1000 songs takes awhile. Folders become paramount to organizing songs or artists, just so you can find something you like inside of a minute.

But does it play well? Does it do what it should? Oh yes, most definitely. And having a Li-On battery in it that recharges off the USB port is *exactly* what every player should have (if it used my Nokia 3650's battery I'd have given it the fifth star for the serendipitous convergence).

"Would I buy it again?" Sure, if I could find another one.
"Is it better than the Rio Cali?"

Hmmm... the Cali is definitely nice, armored with an armband I really like, better UI (LCD presents info much faster, is square and shows more at a glance), has FM built-in. But 4Gb makes up a lot of ground on 256Mb, even 768Mb if you pony up some cash for a 512Mb SD Card. Nah, the Muvo2 isn't perfect, but it's capacious, and sometimes that's more important.

Amazon.com Review

The latest iteration of Creative Labs' Nomad Jukebox line, the Nomad Zen, is a smaller version of the CD-player size 20 GB that, like its processor, can hold more than 8,000 WMAs ripped at 80 kbps or 5,000 MP3s ripped at 128 kbps. Similar to the older models, the Nomad Zen offers connectivity via Firewire (IEEE1394) or USB 1.1 but this model offers support for USB 2.0, versatility that the original Apple iPod (the device whose form factor the Zen imitates) lacked. Gadget freaks familiar with older Jukeboxes will recognize the familiar interface that's displayed on the Zen's 1.7-by-0.8-inch (132x64 pixel) backlit LCD and welcome the up to 12 hours of playback time (the USB 2.0 model promises up to 14 hours of playback time) that the built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery affords you.

The body is constructed of anodized aluminum, and while it's slightly larger than the iPod, it can still fit in your pocket. The Zen also ships with a travel pouch that clips to your belt. Seeking to build on an already strong product, Creative added a variety of touches that make the Zen stand out from other large capacity MP3 players; the included USB cable doubles as a battery charger, you can transfer titles between the player and your PC, and you can even create, organize, and edit playlists away from your PC.

While it’s easy to gush about the Zen it does have a few downsides. Unlike previous Nomad models the Zen lacks additional audio outputs, and FM tuning and audio recording capabilities are only available with aftermarket wired remotes. We had hoped that a device at this price would support these features right out of the box. Furthermore, in order to play songs randomly you have to first create a playlist and choose to play that list randomly. Other large capacity players allow you to simply play all of the songs that are on the device randomly. Lastly, we found the thumb jog dial a little difficult to scroll through, especially when compared to the iPod’s ingenious navigation system.

After all is said and done though, anyone who purchases the Nomad Zen will be pleased with it. With transfer speeds of up to 0.77 MB per second with USB 1.1 or 3.35 MB per second via Firewire, it shouldn't take long at all to fill up the device's massive 20 GB hard drive. Throw in a set of decent headphones (the wraparound ones that ship with the Zen are less than admirable), and you're good to go. --Wil O'Neal ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Small size - Great sound
The Nomad Jukebox Zen is outstanding. The controls are intuitive and the 20 GB hard drive lets you take all of your music with you. Also, the 20 GB drive lets you run your files at a higher rate. I am running WMA's at 160, because I can. I can't tell the difference from my CD's, except for no skips. The player takes up a lot less space in my briefcase than my CD player, carry case, and CD's.

The unit runs for a long time on a single charge. I haven't run it down in a single day of listening, but then I don't listen non-stop. I would have liked to see Creative offer a AA battery pack add-on for those times you are away from a plug. The lack of replaceable batteries almost kept me from buying this unit. I am glad it didn't.

I looked at the Ipod, but there were too many reviews that talked about compatibility problems with Windows. I haven't had any problems with XP Home. It worked fine with USB 1.1 and the Belkin USB 2.0 notebook card that I bought to speed up file transfers. However, see my software recommendation below.

This is my first "MP3" player and I am impressed with this player. Of course I can't leave things as I got them. I replaced a few things for better sound and convenience.

· Phillips SBC HS500 behind-the-neck headphones - These have excellent sound, are comfortable, and are cheap. I had to turn down the volume when I replaced the Creative headphones that came with the player. I kept thinking of Spinal Taps' search for the amp that goes to 11 and their advice to "Play loud". These headphones can be worn with glasses, a major plus. Also, they are generously sized, so they actually fit.

· Notmad software by Red Chair - This software is simple to use and is fast on the transfers. Red Chair offers free upgrades and the price is right. How often can you simplify your life this easily?

· Bose Quiet-Comfort 2's - These work great on the plane. I can listen to classical, actually hear it, and not arrive feeling thickheaded from the jet noise/cranked up volume. The 2's have a single lead, the battery in one of the phones (no battery box), and the phones rotate flat. I owned the "1's" before I got the 2's and they are an improvement.

The one complaint I have is a small one. The rocker switch for the tracks works just the opposite of the display. For the next track, the display moves down to that track. The top of the rocker switch makes this happen. So up is down and down is up. Sort of Wonkaesque.

My advice, buy the player! I got my money's worth.

worked great for 7 months, then died. Only 90 day warranty. Very few are still working after 9 months from what I've seen.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worked OK for 4 months, then it died.....
I purchased the Zen Jukebox in October 2003 because it seemed like a good deal compared to some of the other MP3 players out there. The software was a bit of a problem to use, and the controls on the unit felt cheap. I took great care of the unit - I kept it in a case, and it never took a fall. A few days ago (February 2004), I found that the jack where the headphone plugs in was loose, and I couldn't get any sound from the unit. I checked my warranty, and found it was only 3 months (shame on me for not checking the warranty before I purchased the unit). I will never purchase an item from these guys again. A 3 month warranty??? I guess they don't think much of there product either. Don't waste your money on this thing.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of money!!!
I decided to save myself $200 by buying the Zen 2.0 rather than an iPod. What a mistake. I received it in mid-October. By mid-December the display screen no longer worked. Because I had memorized the menu system by that point I was still able to use the product. I went on vacation right after this happened and didn't have time to deal with getting this fixed under warranty. (So I'm not sure how helpful they are.) I continued to use the player until yesterday when it just completely died on me. That's why I decided to write this review. It's not worth the $200 I saved. It's too bulky. The software that it came with never worked properly either. It would never connect to the CDDB database to name the files so I had to do it manually until I finally got iTunes and started ripping CD's in that. What a pain...! Take a guess what I'll be buying next. I had read other reviews talking about the screen display not working but decided to take my chances. I gambled and lost!

5-0 out of 5 stars MONSTEROUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought these speakers along with a Audigy2 ZS. I installed the card and came across a printing error. My speaker instructions had the wrong instructions on how to hook up the speakers to the sound card. After a little fiddling, i realized the problem. The Speaker instructions had me plugging the chords into the wrong jacks. BE SURE TO LOOK AT YOUR SOUND CARD'S INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CORRECT JACKS. Also MAKE SURE THAT YOUR COMPUTER ISNT SENDING DIGITAL OUTPUT IF IT IS, CHANGE IT FOR THESE SPEAKERS. My comp was set to this and there was nothing at all. Other that that the setup was fairly easy other that the fact that the front-side speakers arent on red/black speaker cable making it hard to get a true 5.1 setup with the 5 foot attached chords. The back speakers are on bare wire connections and make it easy to run different wire (sold separately)to the speakers. Ther are also PLUGS NOT BARE WIRES going to the sub so i had to tape the rear wires onto the provided plug cables. After i ran the cables and fixed all of the problems MY MIND WAS BLOWN AWAY. I havent listened to as good of music quality since my parents 4000 dollar BOSE system. These speakers are monsterous. I have the volume barely on and my 10 foot cube room shakes like crazy. Very good look and easy tweaking is beautiful. Other than the few glitches in the setup, it was a beautiful purchase for 100 bucks!! Just be sure to have a sound card that can handle the 5.1 speakers. My friend loved mine so much that he bought them an d tried to run them on an integrated sound. DIDNT WORK AT ALL.

I LOVE THESE SPEAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very nice little setup
This is my first sound system for my PC and I'm very happy with it. Being a music student sound is very important to me and so I made sure to hear a lot of systems and frankly most just sucked until you got to the $300-$400 range and I just didn't have that much money to shell out. So giving up on the computer stores I went to cambridge soundworks and I actually bought their Megaworks 210D it was $200. I was extremely disappointed with it, while the 150 watt subwoofer was killer, the two satellite speakers hissed which was annoying. It didn't treat all music styles equally and was easily distorted when playing music without a lot of low end such as movie soundtracks and classical music. The highs were piercing and hard on the ears as well. This was true on all music styles even with the treble turned all the way down. So I returned it the next day and bought the Creative T5400 system after talking with a neighbor who had the 5200. I was extremely pleased after I got it setup. (By the way setting it up is very easy and mounting the speakers on the walls couldn't be easier, its like hanging a picture frame. All you need is a nail and hammer.) While it doesn't have the power or the bass that the cambridge megaworks had, the 5 speakers are clear and comfortable to listen to at high volumes. The subwoofer isn't going to blow the windows out of your house but it does its job nicely and compliments the speakers very well. Mine is setup in my bedroom which is about average size and it delivers a nice balanced sound that fills the room. It's a very nice system at a very good price that does well with music, games, and movies. You definitely won't be disappointed. Whatever you decide get a 5.1 system, there wasn't one 2.1 system out there that I would recomend buying. For the same price or a little more you can get a 5.1 system. I was concerned with space as some of you might be, but don't worry about space you'll figure something out. Like I said these speakers are very easy to mount on your wall. Good luck to you! I hope this helps. ... Read more
