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).
Excerpt: The Creative Zen Vision W is, quite simply, the greatest portable media player on the market. So much more than your standard Mp3 player, the Zen Vision W puts the iPod and Zune to shame. Boasting a 3 inch widescreen LCD (which is bigger than an entire ipod, mind …
Summary: I have had this almost 2 years now and use it constantly, Between music and movies I couldn't ask for an easier to use mp3/ video player. Video is excellent and the sound is excellent. Don't bother with the earbuds that come with it, they are uncomfortable and the sound will not impress you.
If only Apple's Marketing campaign wasn't so well-funded

Summary: What to say about the single-best mp3 player out today...For those of you not just looking for a gym tool to shuffle through the same songs time and time again, take a look at the Creative Vision W. The screen is amazingly large and the images crisp.
Summary: I have had my Zen Vision W for a almost 8 months now and I love it. Pros: 1.The Screen is beautiful. 2.The interface is logical and makes sense. (My previous mp3 player was a Zen V Plus and they were almost exactly the same.
Summary: I've owned the Zen Vision: W for quite some time now, and it's a great alternative to the iPod. The widescreen display is beautiful! Perfect for watching movies on the go. The quality and different resolutions you can set make most movies look great.
Summary: I going to keep this simple. I purchased this for my husband last Christmas. He affectionately calls it The Beast. He loves it. The screen is HUGE, the menus are easy to navigate and it holds tons of stuff. The sound quality isn't the best but it's better than many other players on the market.
Summary: After dropping this thing off my desk for the 1000th time the screen got messed up and I thought I'd finally pushed my luck too far. After I cleaned out my pants I restarted it and sure enough it fired up perfectly with no screen problems.
Pros: Built like a Brick with Metal Casing! Good looking screen with very good viewing angles. Good battery life. Easy and simple navigation. Great Sound.
Cons: Memory card slot is outdated. Doesn't play AC3 audio or Divx3.
Summary: Hopefully Creative will build upon this already great player with the above suggestions, and increase the hard drive storage capacity to 160gb like their rival has.
Pros: Excellent Picture. Video motion is decent. Mp3's sound incredible and stills look great. I use this player practically every day and it has yet to fail me. Battery life after 1 1/2 years of use is still very strong.
Cons: Not able to use CF Card slot to access additional storage capacity. No docking station available for the W series
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.
