Excerpt: Creative Labs Inc., us.creative.com $360 street 8.4 ounces; 60GB; Tested Battery Life: 10:06 Enormous capacity. Easy-to-replace battery. Large, legible screen. Interesting slow/fast playback. Big and heavy. Jog/selector switch ergonomics could be better. A competent player with interesting features and ample storage, but it's rather large.
Summary: It's been a long time since we saw a new portable offering from the forefathers of MP3. Since the Zen Vision:M and Zen V Plus, everything has been rather quiet, except for the Shuffle-aping Stone range. Now it's back and it's serious: so serious that it’s gone back to basics, calling its new media player simply 'Zen'. The big screen The Zen is a bit of an anomaly in the flash media player arena.
