"Quite a capable player. Caters to all basic expectations from an mp3 player."4.5 starson by andhragayakudu
Pros: Nice interface. Pretty neat looking. Decent menu customization options. Supports AAC, and works as a portable memory. Has FM radio unlike ipod.
Cons: If you have more than 10-15 albums or artists per each alphabet, the navigation by alphabets would get boring. A decent player for upto 8Gb. Hard to navigate huge collections without touch navigation.
Summary: Quite a capable player. For its size and appearance, it is very compact and sleek. Has FM radio, notepad (to read .txt files), outlook sync'ing, photos, videos .. what not!!. Screen (2.5 inch same as IPod nano) is pretty bright and works for me. For the price you buy this for, i think this is an amazing catch. Please do not expect a big screen from an inexpensive flash drive player. I was able to watch a complete season of my favorite tv show during my office commutes. I am very impressed with the player. Browse by alphabet and search by key word is a very handy feature (particularly since this lacks special scroll features).
The video converter software provided is rather slow. Get the iriverter software available for free which comes for the iriver player. Select the output file to be compatible with Zen Vision M. Iriverter does the job much faster than anything else i tried.
Buy one of those Silicone cases and screen cover (Zen Vision M screen cover works with this) if you are worried about getting scratches on your player.
No big complaints. I recommend this product over ipod nano (Considering the FM as a big plus in Gyms during your work out).
