Liked it for a while. Out dated these days

Black Knight, Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: I brought this back in 2005 as a non IPod conformist. I waited and waited for the price of the IPod to drop. Well the price has not but the gigs have gone up. The Zen micro worked for what I needed it for (mostly for working out). It locked up about twice a month and and about 8 months ago stopped charging. SO I went for the IPod Classic and have not looked back since. Get an IPod. Just so many accessories. I struggled for years trying to find accessories for my Zen.

It's great.....while it lasts

Ivis E. Lemus "The reviewer...sorta", Amazon
16 July 2008
  • Summary: Ive only had one for three months and within these three months I've met the end of the Creative Zen Micro. The Sound quality is really good, the navigation touch feature is a bit too sensitive even on the lowest settings. The device does a great job...that is until you by some accident drop it, ITS ALL OVER! I had it drop to the floor from 10 inches and the entire unit froze, I had tried to fix it but nothing $150.00 right out of the window.

Ok until it died......

AMcCall, Amazon
28 March 2008
  • Summary: My Husband got this for me for Christmas in 2006. As others have mentioned, it does have overly sensitive buttons (even on the lowest sensitivity setting) but I quickly got used to that. It did fine for a while, but then if I skipped over several songs in a row, when it played the next song, it would have tidbits of the previously skipped songs mixed in.

Reliability Issues

albert orwell, Amazon
30 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this product over two years ago. I had to get used to having my music organized by album. The device has taken its fair number of falls. My first problem with this player happened a few months into use. The back battery cover became loose; it would slide off if I kept it in my pocket. The user replaceable batter was part of the reason I bought the devise. The battery life is now at around three hours when fully charged.

Compact and efficient, sensitive buttons, but poor reliability

Benjamin Henwood, Amazon
10 August 2007
  • Summary: I own three of these, and they are quirky beasts, sometimes failing to boot unless your remove the battery for a minute and replace. But for the price, $130+ each, they should last a while. The oldest, just 9 months old, has died. The two younger ones live on. But that's a poor record for the money, I think. For the two that still work, the buttons are a bit sensitive and the menus a bit too complex.

IT WORKED FOR ABOUT A YEAR....

Donna, Amazon
9 August 2007
  • Summary: I BOUGHT A CREATIVE ZEN 8GB MP3 PLAYER LAST SUMMER. IT WORKED WELL FOR ABOUT 1 YEAR, AFTER WHICH TIME I COULD ONLY TURN IT ON BUT NOT PLAY ANY MUSIC. WHEN WE CALLED THE MANUFACTURER, THEY ASKED IF IT WAS BOUGHT OVER 3 MOS AGO. THEN THEY ASKED IF WE HAD AN EXTENDED WARRANTY; WHICH WE DID NOT. THEY SAID "THERE ISN'T ANYTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT." THE ONLY THING THAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED WAS THAT IT WAS ACCIDENTLY DROPPED A COUPLE OF TIMES.

3 Strikes Creative is out!

Suzanna Banana, Amazon
13 July 2007
  • Summary: I bought my first Creative MP3 a few years ago, it's big and bulky, but I liked the set-up and had read warnings galore about the I-Pod. It worked well for several months, then stopped allowing me to dock and download anything. I bought my LAST Creative Microphoto last November. It freezes, it rebuilds, it freezes, it rebuilds. If you take the battery out for more than an hour, it might restart. All those hours collecting music... Wasted! I'm done with Creative.

So-so

M. Wood, Amazon
6 January 2007
  • Summary: Most of the time I'm pretty happy with this player, but it freezes pretty frequently, requiring me to remove and replace the battery -- a major annoyance. I bought it to listen to in my car, and the controls are not the easiest to use while driving. While I'm not completely dissatisfied, I wouldn't purchase it again.

Awesome when it worked

A. May, Amazon
5 November 2006
  • Summary: I really enjoyed my Zen, when it worked. The first one I ordered I had to return becuase it would only play every other song, and after it started acting up all the lights would start blinking and I would have to take out the battery to make it stop. So, I exchanged it for a new one, and just like the other after only one week the lights started going crazy again, it would freeze up, and would only play 5 seconds of every song.

Abysmal Software and tempermental interface

Book Ish, Amazon
26 August 2006
  • Summary: It has great look and a great sound, but...ugh. The software. From the firmware to the desktop software the Zen is cursed with bugs and poor design. Start with the player itself. The buttons are tempermental -- sometimes oversensitive, sometimes unresponsive (i.e. sometimes there's a confusing delay).
