  • Excerpt: The Zen Micro digital music player from Creative Labs packs an incredible 5 GB of storage capacity into a shell small enough to sit comfortably in your jeans pocket. It also rides nicely in your hand, with a palm-fitting profile and thumb-friendly front-panel controls. It's a bit shorter than an Apple iPod Mini, yet its rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides 12 hours of continuous playback--50 percent more than iPod Mini's.

Creative Labs Zen Micro 5GB Review

  • Excerpt: Apple’s iPod is truly a testament to the power of good engineering. What started out as a new design approach to a relatively old idea, the iPod has turned into a phenomenon unlike anything the tech world has seen in recent years. Who would have guessed that a portable audio player from a computer company would set a new standard for others to follow.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality; more features than comparably priced models
  • Cons: Uncomfortable ear buds; firmware must be updated to work properly

  • Conclusion: The Zen Micro from Creative is an easy to use audio player but at first you need to get used to its touchpad interface. You slowly get the feeling for it it and then it will work flawless. The included software offers a lot of options but unfortunately you are forced to use it. Because of this you can’t use the Zen Micro as an external HDD because other PCs will need the software from Creative to recognize the player.

  • Conclusion: With the Zen Micro added to Creative's lengthy list of audio players, the company has issued a strong statement of its presence and ambitions to other players in the industry. Though the Zen Micro is a little late to the market than its competitors, the slight delay was well worth it.
