It has been too long since we have had a MP3 player review. With plenty of MP3 players popping up, we are back with two Creative MP3 players: Nomad Muvo2 and Nomad Muvo TX, the latter of which we will dive into a bit later.

Although MP3 players are quite commonplace, it is that much harder to find the one that perfectly suits your needs. Combination flash drives/MP3 players are a dime a dozen now, and the fact that many of them are made of cheap materials doesn't help. Nevertheless, there are still a select few that rise above the rest.

That having been said, the big bucks, so to speak, are in the higher end stuff: MP3 players with a storage capacity of 15GB or more. This is so even despite the fact that most people who own MP3 players of this variety don't even hit three-fourths of the storage capacity. Of the companies currently in the MP3 market, there are really only two big names going after the ~5GB MP3 player market: Apple and Creative.

With more MP3 players to come, let's begin our reviews with Creative's Nomad Muvo2 4GB.

    Ok, what's the battery life on this model? Reply

    Imo the $50 difference between the Muvo2 and the iPod Mini isn't much even on a cash strapped budget. It would be worth saving up for imo. I always do this with stuff.

    The only problems I see is that the remote on any of the iPods to be quite frank is 'crap'. It is definately no MD remote. And the length of the headphone wires? Rubbish.

    How is the length of the Muvo2 headphone wires with remote? I can't stand the length on my iPod.

    Odd they never mentioned the fact that this $200 player houses a 4GB microdrive that retails for more than twice that price. I'm happy with my Muvo2, but I imagine eventually the drive will find its way to my camera. Reply

    The Muvo2 design engineers should consider adding voice recording function to it. This would be great for people who would want to use it as an recording device. it will probably only cost them $10 more to add this feature but they can claim this is a 3-in-one (mp3, voice recording, and data storage) player.
