      What I like most about Creative Zen is that it is very light and slim. It can easily slip into your pocket. I see people sometimes having some difficulty bringing around an iTouch as it is alittle big for their pocket, but the Creative Zen poses no such problem. So people who like mobility or running will benefit more with a Creative Zen. People going for a jog can also buy the arm band accessory from Creative.

      The screen, although small, is very brilliant and colourful. It has a good viewing angle. Video and sound


      quality of video is excellent. An option called “Fit to Screen” can stretch video to fill the screen. This is especially useful if you are watching movie, but it will distort the video slightly (eg. people in video will look taller). This is unlike the iTouch function where the “Fit to Screen” will crop the movie instead.

      Audio quality is excellent, as expected of most Creative’s product. Only the Creative Zen X-Fi or the latest Sony players can beat this quality.

      The Creative Zen also has a SD card slot. This is useful for moments ...


      • where you have a SD card with photos to show your friends but don’t have a camera or computer to show. However, you cannot transfer file from the Creative Zen’s internal memory to the SD card. This issue is fixed in the updated version of the Creative Zen, the Creative Zen MX.

        One bad thing about the Creative Zen is that some songs may appear alittle distorted when using EQ. Such songs usually have heavy metal electric guitar. This can be solve using the “smart sound” function in the Creative Zen, but this will make the

        song softer and ‘weaker’. Bass is also very weak in Creative Zen. Bass enhancement function only boost the bass to a minimum.

        The external casing of the Creative Zen feels alittle ‘cheap’ and ‘plastic’. Although it looks good with a piano black finish, it is still alittle flimsy. This is also true for the button. Mine is already alittle faulty. More strength is needed to press the right button after repeated use over more than 2 years.

        Creative Zen cannot beat the iTouch. However, if you are looking for something smaller, Creative Zen is a good choice.
