This is a great little player. Well made, tough, compact, light and with plenty of features. It has a graphics equaliser, with a few presets or you can set it to your own preference, it can shuffle tracks and folders, repeat play, etc.
The display on the player is a decent size and easy to read. Proper track names are supported, which is always better than just the filename being used. The controls are easy to work without constantly having to look at the player (such as volume control and moving tracks on or backwards). Once clipped onto your belt or even your arm with the supplied strap, the Muvo is so light that it is not intrusive at all.
The supplied headphones are fine and a clear sound is produced. Fiddling with the equaliser settings certainly proves worthwhile, but at this price point I think the sound quality is superb.
The supplied Creative MediaSource software provides a player for your PC, plus music library functions, ripping from CDs, copying to your Muvo player and all the standard stuff that Windows Media Player et al also do. You don't have to install MediaSource to get the player working with your PC, but it's not a bad application so is worth a look.
The Muvo TX support USB 2.0, so if you have USB ports of that standard transfer speeds are very quick. I have managed to fit typically 65 or so tracks into the 256MB at 128kbps quality, which isn't bad and transferring stuff to and from the player is quick and easy enough that altering your playlist isn't too much of a chore.
Power is supplied by a single AAA battery. This tends to last for about 8 hours or so and with batteries so cheap is very handy as you don't have to worry about charging the player at all, just switch the battery.
At this price, the Muvo is great value. It is a quality player with a decent amount of storage, high reliability and good battery performance. You can pay a bit more for a 512MB model with a built-in radio, but this model does a great job.

I received my new Creative MuVo TX 256Mb MP3 player today and I'm pleased to report it's everything I thought it would be.
This little gem has got an answer for all the problems I found with my last MP3 player.
On my previous player, the battery gave up after only a month or so use and I couldn't find a replacement for love nor money. The MuVo uses just one AAA battery so when it runs out, it's easy to replace.
I was unhappy with having to attach cables and install software for uploading files to the player. If you have a PC at work and home like me and want to upload files at both locations, you'd have to cart around the cable with you. The MuVo uses USB2.0 so you can plug it into a USB port and drag and drop the files straight onto the player. No software required and being USB2.0, it's pretty fast as well.
Of course the Amazon price being £23 cheaper than the RRP was also a bonus.
I know the iPod is all the fashion and the MuVo's 256Mb of storage is not really in the same league but for price and usability, this little fella is hard to beat.

I got mine a few days ago and I have to say the MuVo TX is one incredible device. Firstly the player itself is very small and extremely light, the build quality is very good, but when removing the player from the battery module it can sometimes feel like you have to force it too much. The player comes with a handy clear case that doubles up as a belt clip, it also comes with an armband so that you can strap the player to your arm. The sound quality is very good without any fiddling. BUT the player can provide you with incredible sounding mp3's. Firstly it has its own custom EQ, adjusting this the sound quality becomes much fuller and richer. For most types of songs this is enough, but using a equaliser on your PC first definitely makes a huge difference and delivers awesome sound. I use MusicMatch and the DFX 6.4 plug in. By using MusicMatch itself to copy the mp3's to the player you can ask MusicMatch to apply the current DFX digital enhancements to the mp3's. Using this and the EQ on the player leaves you with awesome mp3's!
There is a hold function on the player, which is handy. The software is ok but totally un-necessary as you can either just drag and drop through explorer or use MusicMatch like I do. Also the player is firmware upgrade able and creative have an excellent customer support team. The only con I can think of is that it doesn't have a FM tuner, but who really cares that much!
Before purchasing this player I was tossing up between the Oracom 200 and this MuVo TX. Both seem to have identical specs; I ended up choosing this one simply because of creative's excellent customer support. If anything goes wrong with the Oracom there really isn't anyone you can contact.
This player really is worth getting, there isn't a better smaller mp3 player with a screen around, the closest competitor would be the Oracom 200.

I got my one of these on friday and I really couldnt be happier with it. It's small enough to fit nicely in your pocket and it's easy to use. I've seen some complaints about the earphones being uncomfortable but I've had no problems with them at all.
The sound quality is excellent and there's space for more than you think on here, no, you cant fit a whole load of albums on it but why would you need to really? I almost baught an iPod and I'm glad I went for this. All in all its cheap, practical and very, very good.
