This review is from: Creative MuVo TX 256MB MP3 Player (Electronics)
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.
