AGN Hardware heeft een review van de Creative Labs Nomad portable MP3 player op het net gegooid:
The NOMAD is currently the best MP3 walkman that I have seen on the market, but it is not a perfect MP3 walkman. The first fault with the NOMAD is the fact that it is a walkman that needs your PC's parallel port to communicate with. The first shortage is the fact that the parallel port with ECP/EPP enabled, you are only capable of having a maximum of 1mb/sec. The next shortage is a lack of a pass-through cable that would share with your printer. Without out this sharing port, you are left with crying out knowing that there is no printer attached. I don't know about you. but I use the printer quite a bit, so this is sure to be an annoyance.
Note: Currently there is not an USB version of the docking station, but that will change. Creative has said that they will be releasing a USB docking station for the NOMAD in Q4 of 99. When this USB option does come to the market, I would definitely consider giving the player a perfect rating.
Another shortcoming of the NOMAD is the player's arrangement for having 64MB of storage on board. Because even though they have 64MB of storage, this storage is broken down into 2 32MB units, which are not related. So when copying to the NOMAD, you must pick which storage areas get which MP3s. I would have preferred to have a 64MB cartridge only, so that I can just drop a full bundle of MP3s at my hearts desire.
