Creative Zen X-Fi 16GB

 

Creative's Zen X-Fi isn't your average mp3 player, nor does it come with awful headphones!

Transferring tracks is a little slow over Wi-Fi - you wouldn't want to copy more than a few tracks at a time - but it's a nice feature to have. Browsing the media library on your PC while you listen is a surprisingly pleasant experience, and for...

Creative Zen Style M100 4GB

 

Nicely put together, easy enough to use, good specs, sounds weighty

The touch controls aren’t perfect, sound could be crisper

A neat ultra-portable player that packs plenty of punch

Creative Zen X-Fi Style 16GB review

 

A multi-media portable, the Creative Zen X-Fi Style 16GB is very likeable and affordable

Fun, fairly robust design ; good format support ; smooth sound and crisp pictures

Lacks the sonic insight of the best

It’s no sonic thriller, but the Creative is likeable and affordable

Creative Zen X-Fi W/less LAN (32GB) review

 

Majors on portability and competitively priced, but not so hot when it comes to pure performance

Small ; wireless music transfers ; impressive battery life for music ; plenty of features

Small, average quality screen ; audio lacks refinement ; not the most intuitive to use

Majors on portability but not so hot when it comes to pure performance; worth considering if price and size are crucial

Creative Zen X-Fi review

 

Our review of the new super Wi-Fi MP3 player from Creative

Sound quality is brilliant ; Wi-Fi works well ; Earphones are great ; Speaker is a nice touch

Interface is clunky ; Buttons are fiddly

A great MP3 player - one for anyone other than those used to the slick iPod touch interface

Creative Zen X-Fi 16GB review

 

Creative's Zen X-Fi is one of only three players here to have integrated wireless networking, so it can play music from a UPnP media server.

Creative Zen X-Fi review

 

The Creative Zen X-Fi has better sound, superb headphones, an amazing feature set, expandable storage via an SD card slot, an easy-to-use interface that will please users who don't want to work with a touchscreen, and - here's the kicker - the ability...

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 it will be a shame if they do. The Creative Zen X-Fi is arguably the most innovative,...

Creative Zen X-Fi 16GB review

 

Creative's been at this MP3 game for some time now. Longer than its vaguely successful competitor, Apple, even. It's had hits and misses, but mostly hits, and its latest iPod Nano rival, the Zen X-Fi, looks like it could be the best yet. The Zen X-Fi...

Can X-Fi sound enhancement tech and a smattering of Wi-Fi elevate Creative's latest portable media player beyond its contemporaries?

Stunning value, nifty extras and excellent performance make the 16GB Zen X-Fi a must-have

Creative Zen X-Fi

 

Preview: Creative's new PMP has the price and features to make the iPod Touch edgy. But can you stomach its lack of a touchscreen?

Packed with features. Music and video streaming over Wi-Fi. Good bundled earbuds

Smallish screen. No touchscreen
