3 out of 5 eggsGood but could be better

Pros: Very high quality of sound, very small, no software needed to write files on the player. Buttons are very comfortable and very easy to push.

Cons: NO HOLD BUTTON!!!!!!
Next folder button seems pretty pointless to me.
Holding play button to turn on and turn off the player is not the most comfortable thing neither.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Light. Simple to use. No stinkin' interface software like itunes. Just drag and drop songs and create folders. The perfect little song machine for those who like portability. It's so light that even if you drop it many times, it will probably survive.

Cons: Stuff like lack of a screen and lack of storage space are not cons, especially since they have a larger 2GB version.

The only con is lack of a built-in clip like the ipod shuffle.

Other Thoughts: This is absolutely perfect. I have bought many ipods for family and friends but never one for myself. They're fine if you feel like playing around with features. But if you are just walking or exercising and can't be bothered with choosing songs or setting up your player, get this.

The one big pro over the ipod shuffle is the folder skip feature. You can play songs in the order they are shown in Windows explorer. So you can create as many folders as you want and skip them during playback if you want. It gives you more control than the totally random ipod shuffle.

5 out of 5 eggsSurpassed my expectations

Pros: As always, Creative goes above and beyond. Its tiny, very light, looks cool, and even though it doesn't have a screen, it still is loaded with features.

Cons: Scratches easily, but I got the arm band, so you don't notice. There isn't a hold feature, but it doesn't turn out to be a problem. You also have to sort of memorize the "code" if you will, that the LED follows but its really only a matter of 1, 2 or 3 blinks for battery life.

Other Thoughts: I sent it through the washing machine. I found it in my pocket the next day. I set it on the heating vent to dry it out a little, and turned it on. Still works great like nothing ever happened. The headphones it came with went through too, and still work. I got it to ski and go to the gym with, and have done both. The battery lasts all day skiing, and even when I take a spill, it doesn't push any buttons (volume, track skit etc. I love this thing and recommend it to ANYONE who doesn't have a lot of music, someone who likes simplicity, or just as a second, music only mp3 player. I have a Creative Zen Vision: M, and i only use this little guy because its so much more portable (but be sure to check ALL pockets before laundry).

5 out of 5 eggsBought it in September 2007 and I still love it :)

Pros: Small enough that you can 'hide' it in your palm.

GREAT MP3 for it's price;
Definitely worth its money.

Cons: I might point out some if I have to be a JERK about it.

(The earphone sucks)
(There's no 'bar' on the MP3 where it shows me how much Battery life is remained)

^the above "CONS" really aren't very logical and reasonable whining in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: I recommend this to anyone who
wants an small MP3 player with decent price. I've used this while jogging and working out and till this day it works fine.

Some have complained about
"Never know when battery runs low", or
"The earphone that comes with this MP3 player sucks"

If you read the manual, it tells
you what certain light (Green/Orange flashing) indicates how much battery it has. Moreover, it is recommended to just recharge it after going out for a day.

"low quality earphone"? Come on, you are paying the price for the MP3 player, not the earphone. It comes as a bonus but that's not where your money go.

One note though,
the more songs filled in the player, the longer loading time it takes. I did a rough calculation that with having almost 1Gb songs, it takes about 25 seconds (more or less) for it to 'get started'. It's not a big deal to me. I just use that time to do something else like put on my earphone or put on my shoes. When I'm finished the MP3 is ready. I

5 out of 5 eggsA+ mp3

Pros: Small, superior sound quality, and very simple to use.

Cons: Battery life could use some work. That rated 10 hours is more like 7 or 8 at most. Used for about 6 hours before it started whining about needing charge.

Other Thoughts: Other than the short battery life, its an incredibly small and efficient device. Sound quality defeats all, including the ipod nano 3rd gen which i also happen to own. The bass and treble seem in perfect alignment for this device. There is nothing but metal on mine so that was an extra plus. Indeed, this has convinced me that further exploration into Creative products would be well worth it (used to be an ipod fanboy ^_^).

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a keeper

Pros: Everything works just as I'd expect. I've owned an IPOD shuffle and this is greatly preferable in my mind.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: This device is about 1/4 the size I expected based on the photographs. Took me awhile to get it to play, turns out Lowest volume setting is "mute" which is the setting it arrived on.
