The Creative Zen Vision W provides an exceptional wide-screen display. Featuring 60 GB, the unit has a durable design and features what is categorized as an intuitive interface. Supporting a wide array of video formats, TiVo To Go and limited movie downloads, the Creative Zen Vision W syncs with Outlook. It features a removable battery and a Compact Flash slot that is perfect for photographers. Rated at 13 hours for audio and 4.5 for video, CNET measured 17 hours of MP3 audio play time on a single charge. On the video side, CNET received 7.6 per charge. Charging can be done both through USB format and traditional, but it will take upwards of 6 hours to fully recharge as compared to 3 otherwise.

On the negative side, you will experience modest delays at times when moving through video tracks. The process for viewing video tracks seems to feature a new screen sliding in with each change. The start up process however is considered quite quick overall. The unit is considered a bit bulky and a bit heavy as well. The unit also does not include a kickstand and does not handle direct line-in audio or video recording options. Reviewers state The Zen Vision W is a great value for a widescreen PVP. Check out these storage capabilities, up to 249 hours of video, literally tens of thousands of photos, and up to 15,000 songs. With the integrated FM radio and 32 station preset stations you have the option to listen to unlimited amounts of music. Yes it is a bit heavier and bulkier than ideal but its beautiful screen is superb as long as you are not looking for video recording options on the unit itself. Throw in good sound quality and the Creative Zen Vision W is an attractive unit.
