Creative Zen V Plus

PC Magazine
12 June 2007
  • Conclusion: Overall, the Creative Zen V Plus is a very satisfying and reasonably priced device for mainstream consumers. It is jam-packed with features, and though the photo and video functions aren't particularly impressive, the audio features are sure to please.
  • Pros: Lots of features. Very good audio quality. Cute design. Easy to operate and navigate. Good on-device file and playlist management features, including letter and keyword search.
  • Cons: OLED screen isn't very sharp, and color isn't accurate. Interface is sometimes sluggish. Video conversion and transfer require proprietary software. No power scrolling or scroll acceleration.

Creative Zen V Plus

17 May 2007
  • Excerpt: I have been an iPod user for the past two years, and I firmly believe that Creative Mp3 players are the next in line to take over the portable players’ market. But they always manage to leave a few things amiss here and there. Let's check it out. Design Creative has tried to keep the V Plus very compact and shiny. The result — what we have here is a player that is approximately as thin as the Zippo lighter.

Review: Creative Zen V Plus

30 November 2006
  • Excerpt: True to its name, the Creative Zen V Plus (ZVP) is literally the "plus" version of the Zen V flash-based digital audio player. The ZVP has all of the features of the V . . . plus an FM tuner and video support. I mentioned in my Zen V review that although I had no interest in either function, the announcement in late October of an all-pink version of the ZVP changed my mind.

Creative Zen V Plus Review

Anything but iPod
7 October 2006
  • Conclusion: The Zen V is not a leap in innovation; it is very similar to the rest of Creative’s Zen line of MP3 players with subtle and incremental improvements. Overall I am really happy with the Zen V / Zen V Plus. It will keep up with other flash players in its class like the Z5, Nano, e200, and many others entering this category. Comparatively, the Zen V has more of a “fun” feel to it.
  • Pros: Easy Interface, Dedicated Volume Buttons, Scratch Resistant Design, Great Form Factor
  • Cons: No UMS Music Transfer, Windows XP Only, Impractical Video File Sizes, Low Refresh Rate OLED

Expert Review

5 December 2007
  • Excerpt: The controls will prove to be giddy for someone with more than average sized hands. The upper part of the Creative Zen V Plus player is a 1.5 inch (diagonally), 128x118 pixel, OLED screen. Although a traditional LCD screen would have looked better, an OLED will do just fine as far as playing music and browsing through selections is concerned.
