This particular (blue) OLED screen definition is of a very high standard. It 's glossy visualisation is inviting you in; and of course it is very user friendly.
The MP3 Player only is compatible with JPEG customary images, that are online/web based, you can also load off from a digital camera, the PC, or from the internet itself. The audio quality is crystal clear, of course depending on the size of file the MP3 file as the higher the size of the file the better the quality. The only one objective that saddened me with this particular product was the fact that it has an limited file recognitions; this will probably be sorted out in the next model V Plus series.
-Mobile Technology- It lacks functionality. No MP4 decoding is available with the Micro series** For any songs that have been downloaded onto your PC from paid music sites that are (Protected by copyright) will be able to be played by this MP3 Player. Many media sites now have encryped code that stops this form of usage.
- 5GB of digital storage -
5GB is just about sufficient to play over a 3000 MP3 music tracks.The transfer rates are fast due to the fast USB transfer fast - track Windows music browser software. What is a noticeable difference is that it is not an ipod; even though it easily can be mistaken as one. What is noticeably different is the price comparison.
- It is no iPod -
The timing for the Creative Zen Micro launch co-incided with the earlier ipod nano launch earlier last year (2007). I'm not a Creative Lab fan as they seem to miss out on the boat regards to product style and of course the highly sought after nano technology. Creative has nano labelled products but they are not so wellknown, due to the fact they are not so good. Creative seems to fall at a couple of hurdles namely the weight. On average Creative is 8 grammes more heavier than Apples' iPod. The other hurdle is the 'trouser test' iPod's generally are unseen in the pockets, yet this model certainly is visable. Overall, the feel of the V Plus is notably beefy compared to the iPod. Though functionally it is very astute and slick.
- The size -
This MP3 Player weighs in at 108g - Yes this is a heavy weight, not that you notice it, though as size does matter this has to be mentioned - now the nano modifications have reached the UK's market place.
- Creative Micro - what to expect? -
The 5GB digital MP3 spaceis just about enough space to use for media storage; epecially for a audio MP3 player. The voice-recording is an useful addition utility - It does have extreme quality; not that I like my own voice of course. External recordings again superb. Ideal accessory for a pop concert maybe - or recordings off a DAB radio, just so long the radio is of DAB quality which is superb for catching up with news updates.
- price -
Retails for 49.99 GBP- For even great offers checkout a cashback offer before buying this product as you can save up to 10.00 GBP - It is worth checking out online for these deals.
- My opinion-
I'm going to give the Micro a 7/10 overall. The white is a design source from the successful iPod branding and I do believe this was Creatives intention. I hope you have found this review helpful.
