Creative Zen 20 GB
Advantages: large memory
Disadvantages: bulky design
I bought this mp3 player a couple years back and I must say it has excellent. On the other hand, it lacks the multiple features of today's media players. When I bought it, it was a top model with all the features but in today's world it is just a larger music player and I now expect more from a product like this.
The Creative Zen is very easy to use. The buttons are big and easy to press and navigating through the screen's menu is simple. The 1.65 inch blue backlit screen can be seen clearly and never freezes. The downfall of having big buttons means that the overall size of the mp3 player is bigger than actually required to be.
The unit it self is roughly the same size of an iPod but a whole lot thicker. It is roughly 2cm thick. It's not great for keeping in your pocket all the time. The memory capacity is great because you can definitely fit all your music on to the 20 gb memory. There is no video playback so that leaves all the memory for music.
The sound quality is good but a decent set of headphones will make it sound even better. Downloading music onto the player is simple and quick. The built in rechargeable battery lasts for over 5 hours playback, which is great.
Overall a decent music player but with today's new technology, you are better off paying more for something with more than one feature and use. The size is a let down but it was all right back in its day.
Summary: not for todays gadget geek
