Creative ZEN Mozaic

PC Magazine
13 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The Creative ZEN Mozaic has plenty of features for its price, but don't expect the cool design of the player to extend to its user interface.
  • Pros: Very affordable. Good-looking, interesting design. FM radio with 32 presets. Voice recorder.
  • Cons: Unintuitive, clunky user interface. Included earbuds are subpar.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: A noble competitor to the iPod nano, but one only Windows fans can enjoy. Aside from a few quirks in its interface, it’s a solid purchase, and a reassuringly cheap one too.
  • Pros: Creative has a well-deserved rep for making smart music players. For anyone eager to sidestep the iPod, the Zen Mozaic, Creative’s answer to the nano, is a stand-up candidate. 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB versions mean it can go toe-to-toe with even the newest iPod nanos on the capacity front. There are also heaps of extras, including a decent FM radio and built-in microphone. The Mozaic also copes with more file formats than Apple’s players, happily chewing up WMA-encoded ...
  • Cons: The Mozaic will only work with Windows XP or Vista, and despite having lots of buttons up-front, changing the volume of a track means rifling through menus, rather than clicking a simple key. Its screen is also too small to really enjoy videos on the move, even if it does cope with plenty of file types. And design-wise it’s less of a box ticker too, guaranteed to date quickly in the style stakes.

Creative Zen Mozaic (2GB)

LAPTOP Magazine
1 October 2008
  • Summary: The pocket-friendly Creative Zen Mozaic player is not the most attractive or intuitive player, but it is affordable, and the integrated speaker is a fun way to share music. It’s worth consideration by younger listeners or Windows users looking for a value-price iPod alternative.
  • Pros: Good sound, Very affordable, Built-in speaker,
  • Cons: Button layout confusing, Scratch-prone screen, No dedicated volume buttons, Doesnt work with Macs,

Could be better designed

  • Summary: We love the functionality of this player, but its design isn't particularly good. We much prefer the bigger Zen to the Zen Mozaic.
  • Pros: FM radio, built-in microphone, built-in speaker, can be used effectively as an alarm clock
  • Cons: Its design makes it uncomfortable to use, its buttons sometimes need more than one push to work

Creative Zen Mozaic review

Stuff.tv
27 October 2008
  • Summary: Tough times call for tough measures. With the Apple empire making Julius Caesar's cohort look like a momentary insignificance, Creative had to radically revamp the look of its MP3 spinners to keep the revolution going strong. Rather than enlisting the help of an artist, an architect or a designer though, it seems Creative grabbed a copy of the yellow pages and called its local tiler.

  • Conclusion: ZEN Mozaic to oryginalny i dobrze wykonany odtwarzacz audio za rozsądne pieniądze. Wyposażony jest w niewielki 1,8 calowy wyświetlacz o rozdzielczości 126x160 pikseli o szerokich kątach widzenia. Większość przycisków do obsługi odtwarzacza znajduje się na jego przedniej ściance, tuż pod ekranem. Z prawej strony odtwarzacza umieszono przełącznik do uruchamiania odtwarzacza oraz do blokowania przycisków.
  • Pros: Ładna stylistyka, Prosta obsługa, Długi czas pracy na baterii
  • Cons: Brak możliwości nawigowania po katalogach, Konieczność konwertowania filmów, Dla niektórych osób przyciski mogą okazać się za małe i rozmieszczone zbyt blisko siebie

  • Summary: Модель Creative ZEN Mozaic имеет массу функциональных возможностей для изделия своего ценового диапазона, но пользовательский интерфейс плеера уступает его замечательному дизайну.
  • Pros: Весьма сходная цена. Приятный внешний вид, интересный дизайн. FM-тюнер с возможностью сохранения частот 32 станций. Диктофон.
  • Cons: Трудный в освоении неудобный пользовательский интерфейс. Прилагаемые наушники оставляют желать лучшего.
