Summary: bought in jan 08, died in feb 09. had a couple of freeze-ups prior to dying this month. pc stopped recognizing it last month & now won't even turn on now. really disappointed in this creative product.
Summary: I bought the Zen V Plus because I like the design, the colors and the supposed features. BUT less than 24 hours after it was fully charged and only 2 songs later, the unit completely froze! It wouldn't even turn off. The only solution was to let the unit's battery die. The reset button didn't do anything at all. After I let it die, I recharged it, was able to listen to only 3 songs before it did the exact same thing again!
Summary: Greetings to all potential Creative customers, I was greatly disturbed today when I found out the lack of help provided by the Creative Labs Company to my wife when her 30 GB Zen MP3 player failed to run properly. In my opinion, it's actions like this that are ruining companies and our country's economy. Due to this company's inaction today, they have lost a once satisfied customer.
Summary: Pros: ZERO!!! The LCD went black after about three weeks. Cons: Only three month ""warranty"" on parts. I purchased it in October as a Christmas gift for my daughter. By the time the LCD went black, it was already out of warranty and Creative wants thirty bucks PLUS SHIPPING just for the PRIVILEGE OF SENDING IT BACK! I will never purchase another Creative product again. Creative sucks. Lesson learned: Always read the warranty before spending your hard earned bucks.
Summary: My unit lasted about four days. It performed very well until it shut down last night. Now it refuses to boot... maybe the screen is dead. Either way, it's a lemon. After checking out reviews at other sights, this problem is not so uncommon. I'm returning my unit today for a refund.
Summary: I received the Creative Zen V Plus as a gift for playing electronic audiobooks provided by my local library. I had hoped to use my iPod but Apple does not support the library's digital rights system. Hence the need for a compatible MP3 player. At first glance it is a beautiful device. The size of matchbox, its shiny black finish and minimalist controls look modern, sleek, and efficient. Its the sort of technology you want to show off.
Summary: I got this as a gift from my wife just this past Christmas. It completely died mid-song while I was walking to the supermarket. And that was only the fourth or fifth time that I used it. Caveat emptor.
Summary: This is a nice player, but this one and a black Zen V Plus 2GB Black/Green BOTH have a dead screen after three months. I would send them for replacement but when I contact Creative about the warranty I got this...... RMA Fees & Details * According to the data you provided, your Creative product is beyond the standard labor warranty but within the 12 month hardware (parts) warranty.
Summary: Don't really know how well it works since it was dead on arrival. The unit didn't turn on unless it was connected to the PC via USB. This was an immediate turn off so I returned it and bought a different brand.
Summary: I bought one of these players in April. I had to repeatedly reset and then reformat the player. Finally in August it died totally. Creative customer service wanted $25 dollars to even look at it with no guarantee that, even if fixed, it would last for any period of time. I strongly suggest that you look for another brand of player.
