"Amazing, 100% Amazing, 10x better than Ipod nano!!"5.0 starson by resvelvet
Pros: Excellent screen, video and mp3 playback, Lets you add extra SD mem, Sleek, great design, voice recorder, FM Radio, the list goes on!!
Cons: NONE, People are cry babies!! Oh boo hoo about little things! NO CONS AT ALL!!!
Summary: Okay, the main reason people have been complaining about the Zen, is that the SD card function is not integrated into your actually file library..That is NO LONGER TRUE...! I just updated my firmware and stuck a bunch of movies, songs and pictures on my extra 4GB SDHC mem card and then imported them all to my library..god forbid I have to take an extra 2 seconds out of my life to import them from the SD card to the Zen library...people are such cry babies.....for 150$ you get an amazing little gadget with no flaws....The apple ipod nano video is a freaking joke compared the Zen...Apple charges 200$+ for an 8gb with no FM radio, and the video quality is not great...The Zen is 150$ for 8GB with an SD slot to make it upgradeable for life..I now have 12Gigs of music and video and pictures..The FM radio is great, the calendar, time, jpeg wallpaper features are excellent....Everything about this Zen is amazing....it's a 10/10 on everything, sound quality, Creative is a very underrated company..Think about this, if you build a nice computer and you want excellent sound, where do you buy from??? CREATIVE SOUND BLASTER...not Apple.... The Zen lets you add any file, music mp3, wma or video, avi wmv etc...with easy conversion program...If you want a cheap mp3 player with tons of extras, great sound and video quality , I would recomend this to anyone...the firmware update fixed any and all bugs it used to have...I work at a dog hotel and I can listen to tons of music and watch tv all day with the Zen..and then listen to talk radio or view nice pictures I took the day before with a nice slide show or I can make them my wallpaper, which is very cool. The buttons do feel a little cheap, but I like how many options they give you...the screen is very nice, colorful and I love the widescreen and size of the Zen....the Apple nano sucks... seriously...the Iphone is amazing..have the 32gig version, but the ZEN 8GB kills the apple nano video on all accounts....100%....don't worry about all the bad reviews, I think they all work for Apple hahah!
