Creative Nomad MuVo

Recent MP3 players have tended to confuse novice users with their advanced functions and finicky controls. Creative's latest device, the Nomad MuVo, is the complete opposite in design and functionality. This hybrid player doubles as an MP3 player and a versatile portable storage device. Featuring a unique detachable flash memory module that plugs straight into your PC via USB 1.1, this extraordinary device requires no cables or software. All operating systems later than Windows 98 SE recognise it as a removable drive. This enables you to drag and drop appropriate files to the drive (pre-Windows 98 SE users need not fret; a driver is included in the box for older operating systems).

This incredibly tiny player weighs only 28g without the battery attachment and has the dimensions of 73x35x16mm (WxHxD). Approximately the same size as a Zippo lighter, the MuVo can be attached to a key ring via the loop on the battery attachment. Power is supplied by means of one AAA alkaline battery and continuous playback resulted in over 10 hours during the longevity test. Six buttons located on the player control playback and volume and are positioned relatively close together for ease of use. A dual function LED informs the user of current status, as there is no LCD to display information. The quality of playback from the device is exemplary: a signal to noise ratio of 90dB and a frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz.

If you're after an MP3 player without the bells and whistles, and one that can also double as a data transport device, you may not need to look any farther.

In brief: Creative Nomad MuVo

A no-frills MP3 player and data storage device that is ultra portable, easy to use and can be used in any PC that has a USB connection.

Price: $299 64MB, $399 128MB.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
