Great while it worked

Summary: I had one for almost 5 months, when it was a great player, primarily for audiobooks. Then it stopped working. After 3-4 hours trying to get fixes from the Creative web-site, I am looking for a new player. I hope one that is a bit more reliable than this one.
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).
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.
Summary: I thought this was a really nice mp3 player when I first got it. But the more I use it, the more I hate it!!! Half the time the buttons/scroll are way too sensitive and the other half of the time they won't work until the tenth try - very frustrating.
Compact and efficient, sensitive buttons, but poor reliability

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.
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.
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.
Summary: My "battery replacement program" Ipod failed and I was tired of Apple and Itunes in general so I searched on the Internet for a new player. The Micro Photo seemed wonderful for the price and storage was comparable to my trashed 10 gig Ipod.
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.
