    Thumbs up Creative MuVo

    Hi,

    Just bought the 64MB version of one of these, and I must say, I'm very impressed!

    The sound quality is far, far better than I expected (and I'm not a great fan of bundled earphones, so this says something), and it's as light as anything!

    Anyone else got one?

    Jon

    79.99 from Selfridges. Got to be worth every penny for the functionality, sound quality, and the fact that I don't have to create a different CD everytime I want to listen to something different every time I'm at work Plus it only takes 1 AAA cell!

    i got one of those too! also love it...so small...the only thing i wished it had was a repeat function...and they should ditch the bundled earbuds and just lower the price perhaps by a couple dollars....

    I'm thinking about getting one as well. Just noticed that they've brought out a 128mb version. Here's Dabs' price list:-

    Nomad MuVo MP3 Player/USB Flash Drive
    Mfr code: 7300000000007
    Quicklinx: 245ZWS
    60 1-3 days 57.00 (66.97)

    Muvo - 128MB
    Mfr code: 7300000000011
    Quicklinx: 2CH0WS
    195 1-3 days 97.00 (113.97)

    Just in case you feel a bit indignant about the prices, just bear in mind that Dabs charge postage, so its only about a fiver or so difference.

    i'm not sure if u'r being sarcastic or if u really just want to know the transfer speed...the transfer speed is a weakness of the muvo compared to other usb key drives since it doesn't support usb 2.0 speeds...takes about 4 min to transfer...

    I was actually being serious....I seem to be getting a bit of a reputation around here

    I did want to know because I am seriously thinking about getting a 128mb version. 4mins for 64mb seems pretty reasonable to me and I guess about twice that for the 128mb version right?

    Another quick Q:

    What is the actual capacity - I guess its slightly less than 64mb?

    just a tip for buyers...i would recommend you go for the 64mb version unless the 128mb is just slightly more $$...since the muvo can also play *.wma files, u can compress u'r *.mp3 files into half their size w/o losing sound quality....this means u can hold about 2 hrs of music onto the 64 mb....this is a matter of personal taste but i think 2hrs is way more than u'll ever need...so, i would rather spend my money on the 64mb and then go get a pair of good headphones....

    Talking

    ah but does it have the ability to record via built in microphone?

    always a handy function if you by chance lose the cable to connect to your pc

    hold you mp3 player next to you speaker anyone

    works fine but you get poor quality and the background noise of me typing
