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: The product I ordered was used and I ordered new. Once received, I found that the product was not compatible with my computer version and so I returned it. The seller was rude and said that he did not misrepresent the product.I will never order electronics from Amazon again because of this situation. I have requested a refund but have not received it to date.
Summary: I have been through 4 Creative MP3 Players (2 of which were Zen Microphotos 8GB). All 4 have eventually "frozen". I personally visited the Creative Corporate Headquarters in Singapore to have the player repaired since the US repair center in Oklahoma would no longer repair these Zen Microphotos; (I was in SG on a business trip.) Creative Singapore would not repair it either, but sold me a refurb unit in March 2009.
Summary: In 2006 I bought the ZEN Microphoto on advice with my boyfriend. It was the most logical selection and offered the most bang for my buck. Little did I know that after all the money I spent on this it would not be worth the investment. Order Number: 454406 Belkin TuneCast II FM Transmitter for Creative @ $49.99 x 1 = $49.99 ZEN Micro Leather Case @ $24.99 x 1 = $24.99 ZEN MicroPhoto 8GB Pink @ $249.99 x 1 = $249.99 HN-700 Headphones @ $69.99 x 1 = $69.99 Merchandise...
Summary: The unit is clunky and heavy, but includes a useful hard plastic case, stand, clip and charger. It also seems to be very durable. The touch pad is absurdly sensitive, so you'll need to use the lock feature. The battery is replaceable. (The ZEN V does not have a replaceable battery. When it no longer holds a charge you'll have to buy another player.) Sound quality is okay; I have not yet been able to tune in a radio station.
Summary: This product is a piece of junk. Within a month the display started going and I had to reload the firmware. Just after one year, the player wouldn't work (kept starting in recovery mode). The online Creative knowledge base was of no help, and they would not help me further without charging me. Overly sensitive touch controls. Won't buy a Creative product again.
The most complacent and unprofessional company encountered

Summary: 1 star only as giving 0 is not possible. I brought this machine in Thailand but crashed after minimal use. I contacted Customer Services via the web who suggested some procedures to reboot and re-download the software. This failed. I had voiced concerns regarding the warranty being close to expiry but was assured, in writing, that the warranty would be honoured as the fault was reported prior to the warranty cover finishing.
Summary: After just several months my Zen Micro stopped working. Won't charge, won't come on, nothing. I never even dropped it or anything. I looked on the web for tips and found TONS of people have had the exact same problem with theirs. I wish I had just bought an IPOD like I wanted in the first place. It also looks like creative isn't helpful at all. Research the web before you buy this product!
Summary: Purchased this Zen Microphoto 8GB over a year ago. Was able to load the first batch of songs and everything went ok. The second time I went to load songs the player was not recognized by the computer. Since then other than to play the original set of loaded songs this player has been worthless.
Summary: Most of the reviews for this product were probably written to soon. After a little use this product will have the headphone jack problem. It is probably the most annoying problem in all of electronics. you practically have to hold this unit in your hand to be able to listen to it right. The best use of this product would probably be a 5gb flash drive. I would not recomend buying it.
