 Packs a small punch!

I bought the Zen V without hesitation simply because Creative is a recognized brand among the big boys, BUT i had to throw mine in the bin after a week of trying to adjust the equalizer to my preference...not that i was expecting perfection but the sound on the player sounds like a tin can and it can't handle deep bass at all! Its a cute player to look at but its performance is dissapointing. If you are considering buying this player then do not waste your money like i did because you will not be impressed. Opt for the Sony or vision M instead... I got the Sony NW805 and its better than Ipod!

 horrendous..now without zen

I recieved this as a gift for Christmas and was just getting used to using it, uploading pictures and music onto it and really enjoying it. No more than 3 weeks after recieving it, it broke! Just completely stopped working and it seems there is nothing anyone can do to help except advising me to buy another one which, for the time it has lasted, I will definately not be doing!
I strongly advise anyone not to buy one of these!

 great mp3 player

I bought this about 2 weeks ago and it was delivered in a couple of days. The mp3 player is robust and the headphones provide good sound quality. Another good feature is that photos/pictures can be uploaded and set as wallpapers. The battery life is good but the only down side is that it needs to be connected to a pc to charge rather than a mains charger being provided.

I put a load of unorganized music on there and it sorted it all out into albums, genre everything.

The music sounds good on there and its easy to control. You can scroll through the all the music in one big list, also once you start playing the music you have the chance to scroll around the extras, look at the time everything.

Also the screen fades out when you leave it for a while which i thought was a cool feature.
