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 bought the Creative Zen Vision W in October after figuring out that I would need more space than my Sansa e260 was currently offering. Before I bought this product, I had researched the Zune 30 GB and the iPod Classic. I ultimately decided on this product because I had read from various reviews that the 6th generation iPod was a lemon and the Zune software left something to be desired. I have been satisfied so far with the Creative.
Summary: I've had my Zen for 7 months now and absolutely love it. PICTURE: The picture quality is amazingly crisp and clear. The widescreen on this player really adds to the quality as well. When you convert a movie using the included software you will never lose any of the video quality in conversion. With this picture you are able to see a clear picture no matter what angle you have the player at.
Summary: From an owner of a Zen and an I-pod. The pros: nice, big, sharp looking screen. Pretty good sound quality. Dependable, strong sturdy body. Removable battery. Slot for a memory card from a digital camera to download photos directly to the player. Comes with audio-video cables so you can run video from the mp3 player to your tv. I haven't actually used these two features yet though. Comes with a charger, carrying pouch, and good ear buds.
Summary: Terrific Music & Video Device that suited my need for the additional compatibility with Audible Books. I also wanted to use it for travel photo storage & this has a CompactFlash port built in for file transfer. I really wanted the 60GB version but Amazon didn't carry it at the time of this purchase. I have since found out that the 30GB version has been discontinued & replaced with a new (slimmer?) 60GB device!
Summary: I've owned the Vision-W for about 8 months now. I use it almost everyday. I have traveled with it overseas, and use it around the house as a Video player and MP3 player. The Goods: * Easy to navigation, good user engineering design * Great sound! Toss the included headphones and attach a Sennheiser PX-100 and you'll hear things that even Creative didn't imagine this puppy could produce. * Not flimsy. Solid, a bit heavy, and big, but feels like it won't fall apart.
Summary: First of all i would like to thank Creative for this much Talked and awaited audio/video MP3. I'm a video enthusiast for the past 30 years way back during the Betamax generation. Curently I'm an Ipod video owner and now thankfully I can say goodbye to this gadget.My prediction was right.
Summary: Creative Roooooocks!!!!! Before i bought this wonderfull mp3 player, i read A LOT of reviews here in amazon.com and other sites, [...] I have to say, until the date nothing of what happend to them, has happend to me, no freeze screen, no freeze during transfer, some people said that the video transfer was extremly slow, until the date i have uploaded to my mp3 a total of 10 videos, all of them of a size of 40mb to 60mb and the total time i have to wait until the videos...
