Bij Digital-Clips is een review te vinden van de lang uitgestelde Nomad MP3 speler met 64MB aan opslagcapaciteit en een FM tunertje. Hieronder een stukkie copy/paste:
Had the Nomad been launched and shipped before summer, it would have blown the socks off the Rio and all its competitors. Now five months down the line, itís still a good purchase with a features list superior to any other mp3 walkman. Its sleek magnesium shell is a true head-turner, and with no moving parts, itís perfect for outdoor individuals.
However, five months down the line, many of its bread-and-butter features are now the norm for any self-respecting mp3 walkman Ė the Samsung Yepp comes loaded with a voice recorder, as done the JazPiper. The new Rio 500 lacks this feature but comes with true USB connectivity and 64MB built in memory, expandable to a total of 96MB with a 32MB flash card.
Still, itís fair to say the Nomad ranks as one of the best mp3 walkmans your money can buy. Itís still got the most features, a cool docking station, and for some, drop-dead looks. Personally Iíd hold off buying mp3s until the second generation machines reach the market. The first generation has shown the huge potential behind mp3 walkmans, but have yet to mature into truly outstanding products. New features such as USB connectivity, backlit LCDs, wired remote controls etc. are extremely enticing and may convince most users to hold onto their hard-earned cash for a few months. But for now, look no further than Creativeís Nomad, arguably the best mp3 walkman ever.
