5.0 out of 5 stars
This is simply wonderful, 11 Oct. 2003
The Creative Zen is a superb piece of kit. It has a good build quality and is easy to operate and rip music to. I can't think of any omissions in terms of functionality apart from the lack of a stop button as another reviewer noted. You can skip tracks, compile playlists both on your PC and on the player itself, fast forward and rewind (a must when listening to audio books). I have my entire CD collection on it (around 250 cds) at 160kbps WMA. I have also started ripping audio tapes to WAV on my PC and transferring them onto it which automatically converts them to WMA format. I lent it to my brother and sister in law for their week away in Spain and didn't get it back for three weeks they couldn't bear to part with it. I have just teamed it with Sound Feeder FM transmitter so I can use it in the car. Overall 5 stars +.
