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: 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: Great sound on this sleek Micro Mp3. However the battery charge is poor... it only last a little over 3 hrs of playing your favorite tunes. Then it shuts off. The AC chargers sold here are not comparable...I already bought 2 and they did not work. I'll have to buy the creative charger connector. Should have bought them in the first place, would have avoided all these extra$$$$$ cost.
Summary: Nice screen, standard mini USB cable, nice sound, good battery life, replaceable battery. Could be great but for a number of annoying failures: - Can't view photos and listen to music - Does not show up as a drive on windows (must allocate space to be a drive) - Can't play tracks on device on your computer, must copy track to computer drive.
Summary: This device has the potential for 5 stars, but there are a few things that keep it at just 3 stars. I've only had it for two days, so I can only comment on usability -- not durability. Here's my list: PROS: - Nicely sized (3.75" x 2" x 0.75") - Solid feel - Excellent sound quality (as with other Creative MuVo) - USB chargeable (car chargers and travel chargers are available, but not included) - Decent play time per charge (I got about 10 hours today and still had a...
Summary: Very durable - I've dropped it several times hard and it keeps on ticking. The navigation is very touchy which can be tricky. The accessories are very limited. The ear phones that it came with are big. They keep falling out of my ears when I'm working out. I like how durable it is, I can always find smaller ear phones but I wish it was easier to navigate.
Summary: I was in love with it when I first got it. I wanted to get the IPod nano, but at the time it wasnt in pink. So, I found the zen microphoto and saw the colors it had to offer. So I bought it and it was what I expected it to be and even better. I listened to it a lot. I put it aside for a while. When I finally got the chance to listen to it again, I realized that it skips songs. I really dont know why it began to do this. I was disappointed.
Summary: I loved this thing for a total of... oh, about ten months. It really works well, that is, when it is working. I love Creative's mp3 players, but the Micro has a few problems. The software used to upload music (Creative Mediasource Organizer) wasn't that great, but I got used to it after about two weeks. The problem with it is that it, many times, will not recognize the player being connected, even when the micro is turned on. The sound quality is great.
Summary: The Zen Micro is a great mp3 player until the earphone jack gets a short in it. I bought my Zen Micro last June and all was fine for a time. Was very happy with it, and did highly recommend it to friends. Then came August. The earphone jack got a short. This had been the first time I'd heard of this problem before. But not since, it seems to be a VERY common problem with the units. So I contacted Creative, and shipped my player back to them.
