Creative Zen X-Fi Style 8GB MP3 and Video Player - Setup and Installation

Creative Labs are anything but newcomers to the world of audio, but they are to TweakTown. So today, let's take a look at their latest portable device; the Zen X-Fi Style.

Setup and Installation

 

Taking into consideration the fact that the Zen Style is a portable media player, which uses no software to do its thing, I feel things are going to be brief here for all the right reasons.

The Zen Style is really simple to get up and running. In fact, I had it running and docked with a piece of my favorite music on it within a couple of minutes.

The supplied USB cable is great for docking to a keyboard and by the looks of the very short length of it (about 4.5" all up) was designed with such a notion in mind.

 

When it comes to actually dropping your music/video/picture content onto the Zen Style, it's simply a matter of dragging and dumping onto the open file folder on the desktop.

It's as easy as I could possibly imagine such a task being and I had absolutely no issue with it; great job Creative.

 

There are a number of different backgrounds and images as well as a couple of demo videos to show off some new products, but also a great idea to have the player ship with them.

 

There is also a date and time to be set for those who need to be constantly updated of such things.

 

These are my favorite type of device because it's so hard to argue with plug and play compatibility. Plus, to be sure, there will be nobody who buys one of these and fails to bring life to it within minutes or even seconds.
