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: 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!
