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'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: 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.
Title Says Slim But Dimensions Show Depth of 1.04"

Summary: UPDATE: I see that dimensions have now been updated to be consistent (given rounding) with the thinner product. The Zen Vision W 60 GB model comes in two sizes, one thinner than the other. The thinner version has a depth of 22mm, which is about 0.866 inches. But note that the description of this product (at the time I wrote this review, perhaps they will correct it if it is wrong) is as follows: Size WxHxD - 5.27 2.95 1.04 1.04 inches is the depth of the thicker model,...
Summary: Prior to purchasing the Zen Vision W 60GB Slim I looked at several different options, including the 30/80 GB ipods, the Zune, and of course, Creative's other products, such as the Zen Vision M and the regular Zen Vision W. I picked the Zen Vision W because of the screen size, the capacity, and because I wanted a device that could tackle both my movie needs and my music needs. The Good: 1. Just as slim as the 30GB model.
Zen beats iPod on price, performance, features and functionality. Period.

Summary: My wife wanted to purchase an iPOD. I wanted a device we could take on vacation and easily store our photos, without having to lug a laptop. In 2004 I searched online, went to circuit city and were told that there was not such thing as an external Hard drive that you could download your pictures from your digital camera without using a computer. Now there is. While the iPod can do it, it requires an adaptor.
Summary: I've had this device for about about six months now and I love it. It pretty much does everything you want it to do in a portable media player. What really sold me over in purchasing this product was that it plays almost every .avi type file out there, something ipod and psp doesn't support. I would recommend this to anybody with a large collection of video files, you will not be disappointed.
