up until yesterday afternoon i would have given this 5 stars, without question. i've alway found mine to have been absolutely brilliant; good sound, easy to use and rather snazzy looking. then, yesterday afternoon, mine stopped working, deleted my entire library of music, and now when i turn it on it spends an hour trying to rebuild a library it's already deleted before deciding there's no music on there anymore.. and turning itself off.
now i don't know how likely this is to happen.. it's the second creative i've had, and the second that has randomly decided to just die on me, and therefore likely to be the last creative i buy.
but! like i said, before it decided to pack up, it was the greatest piece of music playing technology i could ever wish to own. so if you're willing to run the risk of it dying, - which may or may not be a common fault of these players - then definitely buy this player. if you're not willing to take the risk.. you'd be better of checking out something else.
