Summary: I bought my Zen Micro seven or eight years ago. I have dropped it over ten feet, it works, the battery goes and goes. I use my more for books I download from the library. I can store my books past the expire date. Since I travel I can store a number of books at once. Pro: Small, the controls are sensible, the battery last ten or fifteen hours. Sounds great. Cons: Creative no longer supports this device. The firmware is difficult to download.
Excerpt: The Creative Zen Micro MP3 Player is a great MP3 Player. The instruction book was excellent. I was able to sign up online for MP3 website to download songs for my Creative Zen Micro MP3 Player.
Excerpt: I bought the Creative Zen Micro about a year ago and maybe 4 to 6 months later I began to notice the headphones seemed to be losing connection. Sometimes I would stop hearing music until I adjusted the end of the headphone while it was in the headphone jack.
Summary: This MP3 player was purchased to replace an identical one my wife had been using for many years. It arrived in the original packaging, and the "Like New" description was apt. However, we HAVE had issues with it - which is not to say the seller is at fault here. The main issue is that the screen is VERY dark, the printing in orange (rather than white), and virtually impossible to see.

Summary: Worst Purchase I made on Amazon - the battery quit working 1 hour after I turned it on !! The MP3 Player Zen by Creative Labs quit working 1 hour after I started listening to music. I am returning this item and I want a refund! I am notifying Amazon about this item.
Summary: Bought this for a friend and as I had experienced with my player. Theyre design was appealing but after 1 month the battery started malfunctioning then the player wouldnt work at all. Even with the purchase of a new battery. Disappointed in these.
Summary: This was actually the first mp3 player I ever had. I've had many since but this one is still the coolest one I ever had. It was sturdy, the only reason it broke was because I had had it for so long, and eventually, things break. As silly as it sounds I think the coolest feature was when it was plugged into the computer. In order to show you that it was charging it would light up around the edges and on the buttons but it would fade in and out.
