Creative ZEN X-Fi reviewed, but mostly just taken apart

 

Not a ton's changed with Creative's ZEN X-Fi -- which we all well know at this point -- so for right now we're just paying closer attention to its innards all broken out like a science fair project. Careful, the teardown link below contains graphic ...

Creative Zen X-Fi MP3 Player

 

The amazing Zen X-Fi has great sound, features, headphones, and storage options--and for a nice price, too.

Nice features, sound, earbuds, and price ; Networking and streaming capabilities

Plastic body feels cheap, but durable ; Small screen for video and photos

Minor issues like the chat malfunctions can't take the shine off of the Creative X-Fi. It's an outstanding digital music player that rises to the top with ease. The masses may continue to think iPod first when they need a new MP3 player--but the X-Fi...

Creative Zen X-Fi Review - PCWorld

 

A few features differentiate this player from the competition. Not only can you download music, video, and images wirelessly from your home computer to the player, but you can also stream media from your computer, from Creative's servers (which offer...

Creative Zen X-Fi review

 

Editors' note: Our Creative Zen X-Fi test unit suffered from a cosmetic flaw where the bottom edge face plate warped up and away from the body of the player. This causes some concern for construction and durability, but the issue has not been reported...

The Creative Zen X-Fi is an incredible value given its low price and laundry list of features, which include photo, video, Audible, and subscription music support; an FM radio and voice recorder; an SD card expansion slot; WiFi capability; multiple EQ...

The Creative Zen X-Fi plastic construction does not feel high-quality, and the SD card content does not get integrated into the general libraries. Videos often need to be transcoded through the included software, and the button pad can be confusing at...

The Creative Zen X-Fi's plastic design leaves a little to be desired, but that doesn't detract from the fact that the player is an incredible value overall: for an extremely competitive price you get a boatload of features and great sound quality.

Creative ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN

 

An excellent value, the ZEN X-Fi lets you stream and download music over wireless networks, and comes with excellent earphones.

Streams and downloads music wirelessly. FM Radio and voice recorder. Quality earphones are included.

User interface needs work. Most videos need to be converted with the included software. Loaded with buttons.

Creative Zen X-Fi Style Review

 

The Creative X-Fi Style is priced decently at Rs. 6,999. This is around Rs. 1,000 - 1,500 cheaper than the iPod Nano 5G. But for a great experience you will have to invest some money in a decent pair of earphones as the bundled in earphones just do not...

CREATIVE ZEN X-FI WITH WIRELESS LAN

 

Creative has a killer music and video player called the ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN. Not only can you play music and videos loaded on the device but it also

The ZEN X-Fi price(s) are certainly right and the enormously flexible hardware lets you get at the videos and music you want with a minimum of fuss. While I’m not enough of an audiophile to know if the ‘original’ sound quality has been restored, the...
