Excerpt: Just the other I went to the store to buy a new mp3 player. I was going for an Ipod Nano, but then I saw the Creative Zen. I really liked the way it looks.I have the black version, it has a little shine on it, this makes it extra beautifull, in my opinion. At first it is difficult to control it, because you need to control it with one hand, all the controls are on the right side, next to the screen, which will be discussed later.
Excerpt: Honestly, with the craze that Apple iPod has created, I was also willing to hop on one - iPod Nano. However, as luck may have it, I didnot get any new piece in my area! So my shopper suggested that I should try Creative Zen Micro MP3 Player (1 GB, 250 Songs) - he said this is a new entrant in digital music player market, and has quite promising features. With a little scepticism, and my pressing desire to purchase a digital MP3 player , I dared to buy the Zen player .
Excerpt: My MP3 player always stays with me wherever I go, and the Creative Zen 8GB is no different. I picked this up while it was on sale at Circuit City before they went out of business. It was between this, and an iPod Nano, but all of the reviews for the Creative Zen 8GB were very impressive, so I took the plunge and went with it over the Nano, and I am very happy. The first feature that is great about the Creative Zen is it’s larger screen.
Excerpt: A few years ago, when iPods were becoming all the rage, I decided I should probably jump on the electronics bandwagon and join the throng of people who forever have gadgets stuck to the sides of their heads, hanging off their arms, or dangling in their pockets. Of course, I wasn’t exactly willing to pay the iPod price to have it, either, so decided to look for a cheaper option.
Excerpt: Creative zen is credit card sized and can almost fit in any of your pant pockets. It is flash-based and has a big screen which is good for watching videos. The Creative Zen comes in capacities of 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB which can still be expanded with an SD card. It is also easy to navigate the settings of the player.
Summary: the zen sleek is probably the best mp3 player ever made, just behind the nomad jukebox. I have 20 sleeks because I had approx. 3000 vinyl albums, countless cd's, reel to reel tapes and music bought and downloaded from amazon. if you have downloaded from wallmart before 2010 in the wma format, i feel sorry for you for reasons i had better not explain. it took several years to digitize the lp's but now that music is on sleeks and backed up on 2 external hard drives.
A Great alternative for high priced apple products

Summary: I really enjoy the zen line of products but dust under the screen will always be an issue so you'll have to be careful and use the dust covers, which I purchased but did not use because i didn't like the feel of it. To be honest I was fairly upset when I found dust under the cover and blamed it on poor design but I still have it and it's been YEARS. This particular player is great because you can load videos, tons of music, record audio, and listen to FM radio.
Summary: I just love Creative Zen V!!! I had lost my other one and because they are discontinued, I was devasted. It works so well and small enough to go to the gym or for your commute (like me on the train). I found on Amazon and it was delivered quickly, the mp3 was in great condition.
