  • Excerpt: The Creative Zen Stone Plus – whoa that’s a mouthful – is slightly larger than 2nd and 3rd generation iPod Shuffle models, but is cheaper, has a LED screen, and a FM radio. That much functionality could not be put in a smaller package.

Creative ZEN Stone Plus

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The ZEN Stone Plus, at 2GB, has twice the storage of the original ZEN Stone, a screen, FM radio, and voice recording. This is about as cheap as it gets for a reliable 2 GB player (the screen-less 1GB iPod Shuffle is $80), but if storage isn't your main priority, the 1GB Sansa Express is better...
  • Pros: Small and lightweight. FM radio. Voice recording. Stopwatch and clock. EQ options. Can delete songs on device itself. Snazzy date/time display.
  • Cons: Short USB cable. So-so earbuds. Annoyingly long start-up time. No way to monitor voice recorder.

Creative Zen Stone Plus with Speaker

CNET
11 May 2008
  • Summary: The built-in speaker may have few real-life applications, but it makes room for a more capacious battery, and it takes nothing away. For that reason, and because of its tiny price, great feature set and FM radio, we think it's top notch
  • Pros: Sound quality (through headphones); price; battery life; useful feature set.
  • Cons: Speaker has limited applications; doesn't work with Audible downloads; sluggish menus.

Creative Zen Stone Plus Speaker Review

Anything but iPod
8 April 2008
  • Conclusion: I had my hopes up when i heard that the Stone Plus was getting an upgrade, especially since I ruled against it in the Stone Plus vs Sansa Clip showdown . I was hoping that Creative would fix all the flaws in the previous model and really make the player a good alternative to the Clip, but...
  • Pros: Speaker is both loud and useful, Excellent battery life, Nice set of included accessories, Lots of features for the price, MSC
  • Cons: Menus are still slow and awkward, Weak radio reception, Lacks more speaker related features, Volume scale would be better with more steps, Equalizer is poor

Techworld
11 March 2008
  • Summary: Targeting the iPod shuffle on its own ground, the Creative Zen Stone Plus brings a petite chassis, 2GB capacity and bargain price tag to the party – and trumps its Apple rival with a built-in speaker and screen.

  • Excerpt: With Apple launching a whole new range of iPods recently, including the iPod Touch, can Creative afford to be far behind? Not one to be caught shuffling around (pun intended), Creative has launched the Zen Stone Plus series.

Anything but iPod

  • Conclusion: First I would like to say I am a fan of Creative’s Zen line of MP3 players. Although they have their issues and deficiencies like any MP3 player, overall they are a solid product line.
  • Pros: Solid Build, Small form factor, Nice selection of optional accessories, MSC (any OS)
  • Cons: Awkward interface, Cannot browse individual songs, Lagging interface when music is playing, Poor FM reception

Creative Zen Stone Plus 2GB review

10 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Designed to be an iPod Shuffle beater, the Zen Stone succeeds on several fronts. It’s got a tiny screen so you can actually browse tracks, assuming your eyesight is especially keen; there’s an FM radio built in; and it’s cheaper.
  • Pros: The Zen Stone’s sound is a lot more involving than the iPod Shuffle’s and it supports drag-and-drop addition of music, rather than forcing you to use iTunes, WMP or some proprietary nightmare software. It’s tiny but the screen is still usable and build is generally pretty satisfactory. There’s al...
  • Cons: If you get this tiny plastic lump out in public in 2009, people will think you’ve either fallen on hard times or fallen through a time warp from about 2006. The FM radio is not really worth the bother, and if you use the horrible, tinny little speaker in public, you deserve to be defenestrated. T...
