Tailor-made for the Creative X-Fi
on July 1, 2009
Getting some kind of case for a new MP3 player is nearly mandatory (pity the manufacturers still won't ship one with their players), so after buying my Creative X-Fi 32GB I looked around for a case.
I like silicone because it isn't bulky and protects well (not against violent impact, of course). For my previous Creative Zen I'd bought a silicone case which I loved, because it had a snap hook I could attach to a bag strap or to one of my jeans' belt loops. No such luck with the current offerings for the X-Fi, and I really didn't like what I saw except for Creative's own silicone skin.
So that's what I got. I read the reviews complaining about mis-aligned buttons but maybe I was lucky: every detail in the Creative clear silicone skin aligns perfectly with the player, be it the buttons, the on/off switch (which can be a bit hard to reach), the SD card slot, you name it. The player looks protected, it doesn't slip from my grasp and the handling is unaffected by the silicone. It'd be perfect if it had a snap hook.
