Summary: The Zen mosaic has been a great device for listening to audio books and music. It gets heavy constant daily use and held up well for 3 yrs. When it finally gave out I researched my options and bought it again.
Summary: This is my second time buying a 16 gb Zen mozaic with built-in speaker. My first experience was fantastic. It lasted 4 years (way better than the ipod I had for 18 months before it broke). After 4 years the screen died out, not bad for being put the washing machine 3 times over its lifetime and being left in the snow. The size if perfect, not too big but still easily visible. I am yet to find a drawback to this product.
Summary: I bought 2 of these (grey and pink) for my kids as their first mp3 players a few years back. My son did manage to wear his out after a couple of years but keep in mind he used it EVERY day for HOURS!!! I think that's pretty good considering how often he used it and my daughter's still works just fine.
Summary: Recently, my 7yo son was prone to stealing my or my wife's cell phones to play music. I bought a Creative Zen Mozaic 4 GB MP3 player for him as a holiday gift to alleviate the problem. Upon receiving the device, I immediately hooked it up with the attached USB cable to the computer to charge it.
