"OK but not the best"2.5 starson by drenton1
Pros: Ease of operation, handy size, built in battery
Cons: Really poor in line recording, and the battery doesnt last that long in practice.
Summary: This is definitly not the player to purchase if you are interested in voice recording. I have several MP3 Players, My Iriver MP3 players have fantastic voice recording with a dynamite Codec, which is very useful...however that has to be balanced against very quirky and difficult operation.
The Creative Zen is intuitive and easy to operate, but oh dear....both the radio and the voice in need work.
