Worth buying

 

I have had this MP3 player for about two years now, and I still use it almost everyday. I am a 17 year old kid, and this is the perfect little toy for me. It's small, can fit in my pocket without any problem, and it has a voice recorder and a radio,...

Very portable, cool looks and good sound

not cheap, kind of slow starting up, earbud headphones are just no good

Wait For Better Technology!

 

I bought the Nomad 64 because I wanted a compact player that had good sound. However, I did not anticipate that I would have software problems. Plain and simple, the software for the Nomad sucks! The following is a detailed description of a few good...

good sound, compact

8 character filenames, no win2k support, additional software problems, no clip, battery life

The MP3 Player for the Patient People

 

Good storage capacity - Quick charge - Durable case

Slow parallel interface (needs USB)- The incl. headphones are marginal. Way too pricey.

The Nomad: To buy or not to buy.

 

STRENGTHS:

Small size, weight and convenience.

Headphones are not quality

Consumer review by:

I use this almost daily!

 

I bought this player because I was tired of carrying a bulky cassette player to the gym, and radio reception at the gym isn't too great (plus, I go to the gym in the morning when most radio stations are full of yakking DJs rather than music). I wanted...

Almost weightless, great MP3 sound, great size

Flimsy compartment covers; freezes when bumped, poor shuffle feature, poor FM reception

This gift keeps on giving and giving

 

I got this MP3 player as a gift, but I've since shared it with many people. I like the voice recording option, and I like the way it operates. It is very light, there hasn't been any problems with it thus far. I bought different stereo headphones...

everything about it is great

I wished it had better headphones

Consumer review by:

Good Little Player!

 

I've been living with the Nomad 64 for about 6 months now, and am generally quite pleased.

Compact design, great sound quality, sturdy

Awful FM reception, sometimes finicky media

Consumer review by:

Hmmm Carry a bunch of CD's or a Nomad

 

The main question people are facing when buying new portable music devices is do I want to carry this around. If you think about this a Nomad is definitely going to be your choice. The Nomad MP3 player is a small wallet size device that plays around...

Small

Must have mp3 format

Consumer review by:

Waste of Money

 

I bought the nomad on features. I found that the thing does not go nearly loud enough. Also there is NO WINDOWS 2000 SUPPORT, not now not ever. this is not the first time creative labs have dumped on their loyal customers!

small

no support

NOMAD is by far the Best Deal on the Market

 

While looking to buy an mp3 player late last month, I looked over quite a few opinions about the Nomad. Most, if not all of these were positive, but nothing prepared me for the awesome ability of this player.

Just about everything

"Shuffle" function doesn't randomize really well (track number 1 is always played second, and doesn't go through all tracks without extensive listening)
