Purchased one of these elsewhere but thought I'd add my review to Play's site.
Firstly this was purchased as an intended update to several MP3 players which I currently own ranging from Zen Stones, to a Nomad Jukebox to an Aigo Multi Function MP3 player which is essentially the double of this player but without the quality and experience which Creative add to their products.
The player itself is literally the same size as a credit card with the exception of the thickness obviously, I would say its around 1-2 cm thick.
Upon starting the player I was somewhat disappointed the menu seemed like a pain to navigate and I gave up for a few days. When I finally got round to playing with it a little more I was well impressed.
My recommendations would be to firstly use Windows Media Players Sync option in tandem with their find album info option to automatically clean up your mp3 files add album art and transfer too your player. Then switch the allbum view to show album covers, trust me when I say it makes navigating so much more pleasant than Creatives text based default option.
I then changed up the menus placing them in the order which I would use each function the most i.e. replacing the Microphone menu with Music, Video and Photo menus at the top of the tree - this is how Creative should have set them up by default in my opinion. I also changed the shortcut button from "album of the day" to go straight to "my albums" which is a lot more desirable in my opinion and less frustrating if you accidentally hit that button and get some random album playing out.
Also changed the wallpaper to something more suitable. I believe the player uses a specific size of image file for wallpapers but it also gives the option to use larger images with the player either resizing them/cropping them or adding black bars depending on your selection, which is a nice touch.
As for the actual sound/video/screen quality I was well impressed although I did purchase a set of Creative EP-630 In Ear Headphones for £6 at the time of purchase as I was told they far exceed the standard Creative headphones packaged with this player which is true.
All in all you could say im very happy with the player just wish the accessories didn't cost the earth, £15-20 for a leather wallet or silicon skin pack is a little excessive in my opinion but cest la vie.
