Creative Zen Vision W

MobileTechReview.com
19 March 2007
  • Conclusion: If you're a video collector, DVD ripper (we won't tell anyone), YouTube addict or are enamored with Amazon's Unbox service and want to take your videos with you anywhere, the Creative Zen Vision W is an excellent choice. We recommend the 60 gig if you can afford it, leaving room to grow. The US portable video player market represents a relatively narrow playing field with Creative and Archos dominating.
  • Pros: Fantastic widescreen display is perfect for movie playback: high resolution, great brightness and super-saturated color with a good viewing angle and sharpness. Sound quality is also excellent and the FM radio gets better reception than average, though the voice recorder is weak (though better than nothing). The photo viewer handles large files easily making it a good match for dSLR owners and the CF type II slot is useful as well as versatile (if you get a CF to SD o...
  • Cons: No add-on hardware for recording video. Natively supports JPEG format photos only- RAW photographers can backup images from a card to the Zen Vision W but they can't view them. Requires included drivers to mount the entire drive as a removable disk (only a separate partition is mountable without drivers on Windows and Macs).

PC Magazine
17 February 2007
  • Conclusion: This is a solid product with lots of features, good audio/video quality and a decent price, but its bulk and somewhat disappointing battery life keep it from shining.
  • Pros: Nice-looking 16:9 screen. Good video quality and format support. Powerful built-in speaker. Intuitive interface. Removable battery. Supports PlaysForSure and Audible. TV output at 720-by-480. Excellent viewing angle.
  • Cons: No kickstand. Short audio battery life. Body feels bulky. No DVR feature. No video playlists or sequential playback.

  • Excerpt: -. Esto, y algo más, es lo que nos encontramos en la Wikipedia si buscamos por ZEN, un término que se refiere a una escuela o filosofía budista muy presente en el día a día y en las conversaciones de cualquier occidental de a pie. A cualquiera que le preguntemos, ¿Qué es el Zen?, nos responderá más o menos según lo que hemos apuntado, sin embargo, Creative, fabricante líder en la industria del sonido para ordenador, y ahora también en dispositivos portátiles, ha tomado...

  • Summary: Развитие идеи РМР от Creative ушло не слишком далеко, аппараты во многом похожи и даже кое-где идентичны. Видимо, поэтому компания не уводит с рынка «старичка», который еще вполне способен потягаться с преемниками. Новый Zen Vision с буквой W (думаю, она означает widescreen, широкоэкранный) в целом представляется мне неплохим устройством.

Creative Zen Vision W

5 March 2007
  • Summary: Spilleren betjenes kun med knapper og har et tungvint menysystem. Søkefunksjonen er likevel rask og effektiv, noe den skal ha ros for. Creative Zen Vision W føles tykk, klumpete og tung, og litt ”utgått på dato”. Pluss: God søkefunksjon, støtter mange formater. Minus: Stor og tung, litt tungvint menysystem.

Externe harddisk - Creative ZEN Vision W

Pixelmania
9 February 2007
  • Conclusion: De ZEN Vision W is een all-round multimediaspeler voor het bekijken en beluisteren van films, video, muziek en foto's. Door de ingebouwde CompactFlash kaartlezer kunnen fotografen onderweg hun beelden downloaden naar de 30 GB harde schijf. De foto's zijn dankzij het beeldscherm goed te bekijken, waarbij u bijvoorbeeld mislukte opnamen al kunt wissen.
