Zen Vision: M,
This review is from: Creative ZEN Vision:M 30GB MP3 / Multi-Media Player - Black (Electronics)
This is my first mp3 player so I don't have anything to compare it to except my old mini disk player - which obviously sucks in comparison. The zen's battery life is about the same as my mobile phone - I charge it about every two days. As with most mp3 players I'm aware of - it scratches pretty easy. After about two or three days of normal use [keeping it in the pouch provided] the zen was covered with little scratches. These scratches however do NOT show up on the screen when viewing photos or video so long as the image is relatively bright. On dark images the scratches are slightly visible. Overall the screen, and image resolution are impressive. Some of the software features on the firmware of the zen itself and its supposed compatibility with windows media player leave a bit to be desired. As of yet, I have the zen three weeks and I can't fully figure out how to make playlists! Frustrating. When synchronizing with media player several whole albums were duplicated on the zen. So it ain't perfect, but it's pretty good.
