Locked up but new firmware seemed to help?

fbfan1964, Ebay

  • Summary: Gotta give it a below average, at least for now. It locked up when shutting down about 5 of the first 10 times I used it. Upgraded the firmware from Creative and it's worked the last few times without lockup, so hopefully that helped. Shouldn't have to go through that trouble, though.

Nice features except freezing and battery performance

chettaeebuy, Ebay
8 July 2008
  • Summary: All future as mentioned are good, but never had chance to use them. Because of freezing problem this version has. Only came to know after ordering the v plus. And I think it is due to poor battery performance of this model. Otherwise It could have been the best model for the features Like inline recording FM radio recording + mp3 player. wish Create would come up with another model with all the features of V Plus, minus freezing problem and battery replacement.

Not my favorite

T. Rush "Audio-book-phile", Amazon
30 March 2008
  • Summary: After a few weeks of using this player because my old 1 GB Zen Micro finally died (after 2 years of daily use and being dropped several times), I find I truly prefer the old one for many reasons. 1. The power button is difficult to feel and therefore use by touch - you almost have to be looking at it to make sure its been moved to the correct position. The same goes for the 5-way toggle. My thumb must be too big. 2.

Piece of pretty junk

Overstock
17 February 2008
  • 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.

Do not purchase for Audiobooks

T. Hughes, Amazon
13 November 2007
  • Summary: Update: I have given up trying to use this product for audiobooks. The more I have used it, the more frustrated I have become. It is too late to return it. It will go in a drawer where I don't have to look at it. I am resuming my search for a MP3 player good for audiobooks. Previous comments: I purchased the Zen V Plus to use for audiobooks. I have recently discovered online libraries with free audiobook downloads. Alas, these books are not ipod compatible.

Creative Zen V Plus 2 GB

Melissa Hempel "pinkpixie1966", Amazon

  • Summary: This is the most annoying mp3 player, too difficult to use & I consider myself pretty good at this kind of thing. Too many programs and not enough information to help you out.

Is this player worth even $25 to me?

Percival, Amazon
29 July 2007
  • Summary: When switching over to a flash player about four months ago, I decided to go with the Zen V Plus. My Zen Nomad had done fairly well over a few years with just a few hiccups. I have become increasingly unhappy with the player as time went on, and am furious at the moment. "Design" The play button's integration into the casing itself does not provide a good enough reaction. Often I found myself pushing Play and nothing happened.
