Summary: I bought this mp3 player almost ten years ago and it's still going strong. I've not yet had any serious problems with it even after all this time. I haven't even filled it up yet and I can't find anything comparable these days capacity wise or price wise. It's a shame Creative doesn't make them anymore, it was an excellent product. I'll probably be able to keep it for another ten years.
Summary: I purchased this unit used on Ebay in 2011 - 6 years after it was manufactured. It's still a pretty solid little player. The name "Sleek" is very misleading though. I'm currently waiting on a replacement battery to arrive as the current one gets around 5 hours when continuously playing music. Touch pad is a bit awkward but works just fine. Very good audio quality... decent electronic components so to speak.
Summary: I like my mp3 player a lot, it is working fine, and has a lot of very nice features/ I have read many reviews about this player, which made me decide to buy one. I was lucky to find a seller who was not fraudulent, like many that I encountered here in EBay, but what makes me like to buy through EBay, is the buyer protection that EBay provides for buyers, which encourages me to use EBay, more than any other source. Thanks EBay!
Creative Technology ZEN Sleek Aluminum/White (20 GB)MP3
21 July 2010
Summary: I have several of these Creative MP3 players and thy are great. I've run marathons with them, ride motorcycle, bicycle or just play them connected to speakers at the house. If you catch one of them at a good price (anything below $50) they're a steal!!! Great sound and easy to use. Even without the software disk they connect directly with Windows Media Player. One detraction is they don't work real well with Windows Vista (or probably the latest version of Windows).
Summary: The item arrived in working order, although it was not cleaned of former content and not set to defualt factory settings. All accessorories were included. HOwever the wear on the device was more than claimed and soon after both the device and a connecting cable malfunctioned. The device had a weak/marginally functional power switch which soon lost all function. Take this warning, tested and working is not the same as factory condition.
Summary: Large screen, durable little player. Slight difficulty in creating files and transferring MP3's. Large buttons for selections except middle slide is touchy! It takes awhile to get used to this. If you're selecting a file for play it may pick the wrong one when your finger leaves the pad too soon. Would prefer a roller wheel for file selection. The look and feel of this player is high quality for sure! All in all great value for the money! a B+ Recomended!
Summary: I bought this unit for a backup and to put some of my special music on it. I listen almost exclusively to my other Creative Touch 40gb player. I recently put all my cd collection on a hard drive and use it to download into my player. I like the look and the feel of the Zen sleek.. it also has an FM radio. It works great with earphones or plugged into a car stereo or any other stereo. I use my 40 gb on my job plugged into a Bose wave radio and it sounds great..

Summary: I have to believe that the negative reviews on this product are due to operator error. My used sleek showed up w/1600 songs on it. I plugged it into my laptop which recognized it immediatly. I deleted most of the songs(sorry brittney and J-Lo) and loaded my library (you know,with good music). I could not be happier. Good battery life.
