Good At First, Downhill

Christian McKinney, Amazon
14 August 2007
  • Summary: I've had this MP3 player for a good while.... Got it new for over $200 dollars and after watching the market for almost two years I realize what a bad deal that was. I suppose it is worth the $129 price. My main problems with it were the following: 1. small screen. The screen boasts a ton of colors, but the screen is small and rather old looking. 2. horrible battery. they say it is a 19 hour battery, but nay.

DO NOT EVER BUY THIS PRODUCT!

K. Moore, Amazon
17 November 2006
  • Summary: While Zen may be a trancendental state of mind, this ZEN will put you in a less enlightened frame of mind if you buy it. I did and now have lived to regret it. The unit frequently freezes and can be reset with a paperclip. Then it for some wonderful reason, it deletes a part or all of a song(s) when you do. The battery life is pitiful, even with the backlight and extras turned off. Forget about downloading firmware or software and getting it to install correctly.

I got a lemon

Tim Berry "business planning expert", Amazon
3 April 2006
  • Summary: Less than 2 months after purchase the buttons stopped working, and the manufacturer was difficult to deal with. No useful support or responsibility. Amazon, which is where I purchased, gave me an 80% refund. Disappointing.

Poor quality and slow customer service.

E. Lee, Amazon
12 March 2006
  • Summary: I received the Zen Sleek in early January. I used it about a month with no problems except the occasional freezing up that is apparently pretty common with this item. With a paper clip reboot, you can undo that problem pretty quickly. However, after a month of use, it became unusable due to a hardware problem. Through Creative's online customer support, I got some tips. I reloaded the firmware, etc. However, it finally became totally unresponsive.
