Summary: I've had mine from when they first came out. I'm a professional musician and have used this for many events besides personal use. The customizable EQ is priceless (not like the iPod). Music sound is superb, (I advise the Sennheiser PX100 foldable headphones). It is bulky, but the newer Creative screen is only 3" compared to Vision W's 4.3". Why squint when watching movies? All the features to me are just right.
Summary: I have been used creative's other products and I like very much use Zen W. Image quality is best in other portable video players. But I want to radio recorder in Zen W. And that could be thin. Zen W is amusing and specially very available for travelling.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Lots of Storage, Simple Controls
Summary: i use it to keep my 3yr old relaxed while in car. so easy to upload videos and with the help of corel 6 plus put some kids videos (some DVDs also- fast conversion) in it very easily. a veriety of video formats supported cannot hav in anything else similar. i also hav an ipod really trash when compared to zen. i you are looking for something really portable to play video, this is it with a very good display.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls
Summary: I use the Zen mostly for music and as a portable storage for photo sessions that overflow my cards capacity. I am pleased I bought the Zen, but want to share with you 4 aspects that I like less. 1) In music play mode the buttons are difficult to feel without viewing them (at night for example). They are small, close together and recessed. So often I push pause instead of advancing the track.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Lots of Storage
