better than the ipod,
By A Customer
This review is from: Creative Zen 20GB MP3 Player - Black (Electronics)
Got this on Monday (now Friday). I bought this when my 3rd Generation iPod broke (after 18 months!). Apple wanted £170 to repair it. The Zen player cost me under £150 from Amazon and it is built better, sounds better (perfect true digital sound, unlike Apple). I even think it looks better. Even the FM radio sounds good (if you are in a strong reception area).
My player is now half filled with wma files. I had purchased some songs from iTunes which were protected files which I burnt to CD and re-imported (to convert) but it was easy as I hadn't many. (I would never buy another iTunes Music Store song because of the protection issue)
Yes, the touch pad is a little tricky on day one, but by day two you will have mastered it.
OK, I've only had the player a few days but I would recommend it to anyone and at this price it is a bargain. I am very pleased. Yes, buy it. Delivered by Amazon Super Saver Delivery in a few days (fantastic service Amazon).
For the lad who asked about the size: it is no bigger than my broken 3rd Gen iPod.
I won't buy Apple again!
