Where I use it and What I use it for...
-In the gym. It's convenient. I find my headphones are more of a hassle.
-In the car. It's convenient and easy to navigate.
-Studying. I have a folder with music that is conducive to studying.
-Napping. I have a folder with music that is conducive to relaxing.
-Audio Training. My company puts training in MP3 format and I can use this to listen to them.
-It's 1G. Although sometimes I feel like it's too little, it really makes me figure out what I really want to listen to, vs the 40GB Nomad which has "everything" so I never know what to listen to next.
-It's a hard drive to your PC, so you can just drag and drop (and use as a hard drive). What I do is build the folders on my PC and just drag and drop them on.
-Although it doesn't support playlists, it does allow folders (only one level).
-Many play modes including playing just one folder with repeat....other modes are common (shuffle, shuffle repeat, normal, repeat all, repeat song, a--b....)
-The EQ is nice.
-Navigation is fairly easy.
-Sound is pretty good. Never used the headphones that came with it. I use Shure E2Cs. It also sounds pretty good using Grado SR-80s.
-It's convenient for the car. My car has an aux jack that goes right into the headphone. I guess that's more a feature of my car than the N200.
-LCD orientation can be right handed or left handed. Although I'm right handed, I find the left handed orientation more convenient.
-FM Radio is decent.
-It's small. Sometimes, too small, but overall it's a good thing.
-I haven't tried the inline MP3 encoding, but I do like the fact that it can encode at 160bps. I find that 128bps really doesn't provide adequate quality.
-Pretty easy to navigate especially between folders. You just have to press the toggle and keep it down and it shows the folder. From there you could go forward or backward by folder.
-Within the folders, it'll play the songs in alphabetical order only. You can get around it by numbering the songs in each folder.
-The voice recording is very sensitive and is prone to any movement or background noise.
-The battery door can fall off easily.
-The rubber case takes away some of the nice design on the player. But, it works pretty well. And makes the battery door less prone to fall off.
-There's no lanyard attachment to hang around your neck. It does come with an armband, but I never got used to that.
-To lock it you need to go through the menu. It would have been nice if it was a switch.
-Just recently, it started turning itself off intermittently. Then, it got really bad and it would stay on for only a brief moment. Sending an email to Creative Tech Support, they responded same day and suggested I upgrade the firmware to 1.12.01. It fixed it. It also fixed the buzzing problem when the light is on. I never heard the crackling that others have heard (maybe I just wasn't paying enough attention).
Overall, I'm very happy with it. Until it starting shutting itself off, I would say that I was extremely happy. Since it only took upgrading the firmware to fix, I got over it. I would highly recommend this player. Look for rebates and a good price like here on Amazon and it is a pretty good value.
What I liked. Small size, replaceable battery, design and controls are excellent, very easy to use, very good construction - does not seem cheap.
What I didn't like. Volume level and controls.
If you like easy listening music and can live with moderate volume levels than this is the player for you.
If you listen to hard rock and would like to pump it up or if you want to use a cassette adapter with your car radio you might not be happy with this player.
When using the normal equilizer setting on this device the volume levels are so low that they are just barely audible, the sound you hear is kind of muffled or foggy and I must set my car radio to near max to get any decent respone from my Alpine speakers.
The only fixes I found were to use alternate equilizer settings.
The Rock or Pop setting helped but the solution I settled on was to use the custom equilizer and set all the frequencies to max. This was better but I still had to set the volume controls to a minimum of 30 of 40 set points for normal listening and to get a better more realistic audio it was necessary for me to set the volume to 35.
Changing ear buds did not help and in some cases only hurt.
I've had an iRiver flash player for some time and the volume will blow you away before you can max it out, not that I listen to it at max but the audio presence just seems more powerful at much lower levels.
I am not alone as I have read of other people mentioning this problem on Creative's web site, and yes I have upgraded the players firmware to the latest North American (USA) version.
If I am able to return this device to Amazon I will probably order the 1 GB iRiver flash player as a replacement even though it does not support the "Audible" digital book format.
I would love to keep this player if I could get over the volume problem. I've tried to live with it but I can't afford to throw away the better part of $200 for something that doesn't meet my expectations.
Hope this helps someone out there !!
I go to the gym a lot and was looking for a Flash Media MP3 player. I was using a SONY Mini Disc, but God what a pain in the but to convert the MP3's to ATRAC. Get with it SONY! I was looking at the IPOD shuffle, but without a screen...come on.
This thing doesn't skip at all, sounds excellent, the headphones are good though I switched to the wrap-around the head kind becuase I am not a big fan of earbuds when exercising. It has an awesome arm band if you want to use it and, get this...comes with an energizer AAA battery! How many products give you a battery when it isn't one built in or specific to the device? Not any I know of. The player will run for 15 hours or so and I just have a spare AAA if i need to replace it and BAM!... I am back in business.
This thing is worth every penny, though I see it went down 10bucks on amazon since I bought it. Oh well. Buy this. You won't be unhappy.
