Creative Zen MX 8 GB
Advantages: Easy of use, good sound quality, multi-use
Disadvantages: crashes every now and again maybes 1 a month
I originally bought this product in 2008 after losing my previous zen. From argos it cost me £120 which i was quite willing to pay after my last zen was something I listened to everyday.
It is surprisingly lightweight, has 8GB of storage (which can be upgraded to 12GB via the sd-card slot at the top). Mine came with creative headphones which were excellent in quality (still using them today)..
The menu is very easy to navigate around in and the buttons are self explanatry (UP volume UP, Left Previous Track and so on.....) Has a FM radio built in which can be access when the earphones are plugged in. Also included was the driver cd (don't lose this as the drivers can be a pain to download from creative) the usb for charging/uploading.
The player itself will allow you to play movies, mp3s and wma and the storage space can be configured so that you could say 50% for media and 50% as a usb drive (come up as USB mass storage device, like a pendrive).
Reliability: I must admit that it is not flawless and had crashed once or twice, a restart and it seems to work fine. The battery life is excellent and fully charged this can last me about 10-14hours depending on what i'm doing (i.e. watching video or playing music)
Overall 4/5 very good media device.
Summary: Good 4 out 5
