Pros Nice screen graphics, sounds good
Cons Documentation for some SET features lacking, disc setup is more intrusive than I like
Summary When I'm commuting, I don't want FM radio babble or to watch video on a 1.5 screen. In truth, I need to keep my eyes open because of some of the areas I pass through. Give me my choices of music, sweet music. The ZEN V 1 gig gives me just that without the distractions. Nice user interface for the most part. Enough memory for a decent selection. Bad things are WAY too much fluff on disc installation, no help documentation on setting clock. Had to hunt online for that. Price was within my range too. I'm pleased.
Pros Random music selection, FM Radio, Video & recorder
Cons Manual is not detailed
Summary I bought this player for my son's birthday. His birthday is still a month away and I have become attached to the device. It is a great starter player and with all of its options---it is a steal at this price!

Pros nothing to say
Cons nothing to say
Pros Fairly durable, nice size, easy navigation, some customizations available
Cons manual was completely useless and the earphones were crap
Summary I've now had mine for a while and other than a small hiccup when I first got it (manual was lacking) I've had no complaints. Mine has never frozen (and I've used it outside in -20 weather lol) and after playing around with it I found that it was much easier to actually a much better mp3 player than my old iPod I purchased the Zen V to replace. I do recommend getting a new pair of earphones though because the ones included with the mp3 player are pretty much crap and to actually bookmark the creative labs site because the manual is basically useless.
Pros easy to use, recorder, photos etc
Cons It crashed once
Summary It isnt bad at all, I have this on 2 GB. I did consider on getting plus with more memory and video player but I am ever gonna watch videos on such tiny players so to me this is a good deal. They could have thrown in AM/FM then it would have been really nice.
It did give me a problem once, it crashed and I had to drain the battery and recharge.. So lets see what happens.
Overall I would sugesst anyone whos considering to get this dont get it get Plus instead just because it has AM/FM I am considering of returning this and getting plus as well.
