Creative Zen 20 GB
Advantages: Great durable player
I have had my Creative Zen for many years now and still love it and wouldn't change it. During these years of use the playing has not had any problems and still looks as good as new despite being dropped the odd time.
The mp3 player is quite large in today standards as it's not paper thin but this also helps with it being very sturdy. The appearance is nice with the blue lights around the edge and the backlights for the controls so you can see what you are doing in the dark.
The power button, head phone jack is on top of the player as well as a lock function and the master reset button can be reached from here. The battery life is very good and I have used it on a number of long journeys without any problems and it is still as good today as it was new.
The player is only 20gb, small compared to others you can get but I find this to be plenty of space for my music and can store a lot of songs. You are also able to use the player as a portable storage drive for other things.
The menus on the player are very easy to navigate with the scroll bar and other controls. The player features a lot of different functions for its age, which I love about it. As well as playing your mp3s it also has radio built in and picks up stations easily, you are also able to record the radio on to the player. Another feature that can come in handy is that is has voice recording and an alarm for when you have it plugged into speakers.
The mp3s are very easy to put on to the player with you being able to use the software that comes with the player or simply use media player or any other software you have.
You can create play lists on the player itself to listen to and the player has a good search method for find artist/songs. Other options are using the DJ mode where it can play random songs, album of the day or most listened to favourites as well as others.
The player came with a number of accessories in the box, as well as the software and manual it came with a charger, usb cable, earphones, a pouch and a solid holder that the player can be stood up it or clipped onto yourself if using for activities like jogging.
Summary: A fantastic player i plan to keep for many more years
