Coolest MP3 player I've ever had

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.
Way over priced for this. I can't understand why you con artists are demanding a $100.00 or more for this 5yr old player.

Summary: Way over priced for this. I can't understand why you con-artists are demanding a $100.00 or more for a used, 5yr-old, out-dated MP3 player. Don't get me wrong, this is a really nice player I have had one since mid 2005 and now I am looking to find another to replace mine since it dropped one too many times and broke. I have tons of accessories purchased for this unit therefore I need to find another of the exact model.
Summary: I have had my Creative Microphoto since Christmas of 2005 and it STILL works, original battery and everything! The extras on it are totally worth it (recorder, AM/FM radio, etc.) And even if the battery dies, you are able to easily replace it, unlike iPods. I totally recommend getting a Creative.
Look at the other reviews with different colors...

Summary: I do not argue with the only review for this product and in this particular color. It could be a combination of bad luck and a bad window for a defective product to fall into her hands. It could be the OS she used or the PC itself. I can tell you another story: My sister, she had an iPod for $500? 40-80GB and what not. She had it for a year then it broke down on her. She wasn't able to get it fixed. $500 dollars down the drain...
Summary: This is a great item and for the cost, can't be beat! I purchased a reconditioned ZEN for $[...]including shipping. The shipper even upgraded me to a 8 GB unit for the same price! This player has a remarkably easy to use interface and downloading music was a breeze. The stock headphones are good and it comes with a built in mike for recording. I've used the mike to record rehearsal sessions and the playback is great.
Summary: We all want an iPod, basically due to the accessory market. It seems that everything is geared toward that blasted thing. I personally have never been a fan of engineered product life cycles. It comes down to the part that is going to be replaced first, which is the battery. Especially on a daily user as I. I don't want to have to spend anywhere from $200 - $500 on a new product every year. Or pay to have my unit shipped to apple and have them replace the battery.
Summary: I have had my creative zen micro photo player for about 5 months now, and i've enjoyed it with almost no troubles at all. first of all, I love the color varieties available. I ordered the pink one. it's a nice shade with a little bit of a sparkle/shimmer to it. soon after i bought it i bought a peach-colored silicone case/cover for it that also looks great with the color of the player. the only little problems i have with the player? 1.
Summary: This is a nice product. The only problem is that when charged through your computer it takes forever to fully charge. Additionally, if you utilize the equalizer function, the battery runs down exceptionally quick. Despite those functions, the overall product has great features and a great sound!
Summary: I just bought this Creative Zen Micro Photo 8GB a week ago and my observations are as follows: 1) The unit is much smaller than I expected. I thought it was the size of an iPod, but it is only about 2" x 3". 2) The sound clarity and volume is very good. I use this while riding a motorcycle and I need to be able to hear over the traffic noise, which is not a problem. I can listen at a comfortable level that also drowns out wind noise.
