cool little player

bizz, Amazon

  • Summary: This mp3 player is nice. It's easy to use and has an equalizer which is convenient but the radio or mp3 playback one or the other wasn't loud enough.

Excellent for the price!

  • Summary: I had the Zen Wav for a few years before it broke. I was REALLY impressed with it, because I'm very clumsy and dropped it MANY times. In the end, it was a button that stopped working. So I ordered the Style from Amazon, which seems to be the next generation of the Wav...except I got twice as much storage for half the price (wooo!). So far, I really love it! It holds a lot of music and it's very easy to put files on it.

Creative Zen has gone down the tubes

TJ LA "myspace.com/mrdreamstream", Amazon
18 September 2011
  • Summary: I had a Zen mini for years that was great. This player was a huge disappointment. And the software is a complete mess. The registration "gentle reminder" was in an infinite loop, the solutions didn't work until I figured out to take creative out of the startup programs. That also helped with the other worse problem, a process that I found in task manager that was using 25% of my CPU even when the program wasn't running.

Its an OK player!

CK, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: Sound Quality Battery life Memory Price Cons: Buttons are small Speaker not up to the mark My main disappointment were the speakers. I had a Creative mp3 player with speaker similar to this that I had purchased in 2007. I cant remember the model of that one, but it had the most terrific speaker quality. The Zen's speaker can be barely heard at full blast.

Great, except-----

Carol S Cohen "d", Amazon
4 August 2011
  • Summary: Loved everything about this player until the THIRD one I had quit for the same reason as the first two . It froze up while 'rebuilding library' after recharging, and nothing I did could revive it. I used it exclusively for audiobooks through our library for 2-3 hours per day, so maybe it was just overuse, but the third one quit just 2 weeks after the one year warentee expired. Now researching a replacement.

GREAT MP3 DEVICE

W. JORDAN "NAVYNAMVET", Amazon
4 August 2011
  • Summary: This MP3 Player is really a great product, so much sound and capacity for such a small device. Everyone I showed it to marveled at the size and could'nt believe that it held my music collection (752) songs that are longer than normal length (Jazz tracts tend to run longer than most). The menus are easy to use and the player gives you a lot of choices on how to playback your songs.

No up to Sony or Apple standards

R. Arakawa, Amazon
15 July 2011
  • Summary: The mp3 player is nice and small, but it feels really cheap. The controls are confusing as well. The program that uploads the music to the mp3 is confusing too. Zen isn't the word to describe this mp3 player, it is the opposite of zen. Majority of the itunes music I have will not work on this player, which is a huge downside. I should have purchased an ipod or a sony mp3 player.

Style 300

Adam Martin, Amazon
26 June 2011
  • Summary: This mp3 player is well made (dropped it immediately while turning it on for the first time EEK!) and lives up to the creative brand as I previously had the Zen V Plus and decided to upgrade to this. The size is similar though I was under the impression that it was bigger than what it is, but it is fine(make sure you convert the mm to in).

Too many problems

Chris Schmidt, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: The best news is that this player DOES remember where you left off within the track when you shut down the player. It even remembers it after plugging the player into the computer. Because of this, and because of the "track once" play mode, for many people this player will be a good choice for audio books. Problems: --It has trouble deleting albums and tracks. It pretends to delete them, and then doesn't. Rebooting usually solves the problem.
