Summary: I purchased this as a replacement for my original Zen Mozaic 8GB that I lost last week. I was very disappointed by this Zen Mozaic EX300 for two main reasons: 1- The Zen Mozaic EZ series does not support MTP. This means I cannot transfer/sync my Windows Media Player playlists to this device. I have lots of playlists that I have created over the course of past 4-5 years and all of them are WMP playlist. Now I cannot sync them.
Summary: The player works well and I like the external speaker. The screen is easy to read, the menus not so easy to navigate. My previous player was much better designed for listening to audio books downloaded from my local library. It automatically picked up where it left off when turned back on. The Creative Zen reverts back to the beginning of the part of the book I am listening to when I turn it back on unless I set a bookmark.
Summary: I bought this MP3 player after having had the Zen Stone and the Zen Stone Plus for several years. I couldn't get a Stone, so I read reviews on this machine. I got a good price, so I went for it. It took me several days to try and get anything out of it, as far as getting it to play or entering information. I finally managed to get the date and time in, (it took many attempts) and had a hard time getting the tunes I had so conveniently loaded via my computer, to play.
Summary: This is a serviceable player and worth the money. I recently left my old Mosaic on an airplane and purchased this model. This looked like a great deal until I noticed that the functionality such as the on/off switch and channel selector were not as good as my last one. Then I noticed that this was the "basic" Mosaic. It's not a rip off because the price is fair, but look carefully at functions and features, you may not get what you think you might.
