Taku, Nottingham Cool Funny and Confident

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Creative have really outdone themselves this time with a small easy to use mp3 player, packed with so many features I'm sure they defied the law of physics. Great for walking around and listening to audiobooks too, loud enough to make sure your deaf when your older this was definitely a good buy. This is still one of the few production mp3 players with a line in especially at 4GB. In this range I would definitely say it was at the top of its class.
Bad points:
Its beginning to show a few functional bugs, like it pauses halfway between a song and needs to be paused and replayed but I work with a lot magnet a lot so that probably affected it. I would have preferred a mic input socket (it was hard enough to find a modern mp3 player with line in I accepted it.)
