      Disadvantages

      MP3 and accessories - YES. In-built speakers - NO!!!

      I bought one of these recently from Morrisons for £9.99 and it came with the headphones, a skin and a clip.

      It does exactly what it says on the tin, it hold between 150 and 200 songs (depending on size of the song) the only thing i would say is it sort all your music (automatically) by alphabetical order, no matter how you sort it on the computer, also the shuffle picks out the same songs over and over and as it has no screen and reshuffles all your music its very difficult to shuffle through to a song you enjoy.

      The headphones that came with it are the only headphone i've found since that are comfortable and sound good.

      The speaker within the MP3 player is something to be desired, i'm not one for playing music through a tin but I would imagine thats how it sounds, but this isn't the reason I bought it.

      It comes with a protective skin, which I leave on mine constantly as it does help protect and unlike some protective skins it doesn't compromise any of the buttons! Mine also came with a little belt clip, again I use this everyday!

      Overall, I would recommend it to anyone who needs an MP3 player its small compact and will tuck away in my jeans pocket (and women pockets are not very big!!)

      Disadvantages

      Other products do it better when it comes to built in loud speakers, still a great product though.

      Another Zen Stone twist on a successful theme. With such a good base product though, it is hard to go wrong!

      Very easy product to use and one of the most portable / convenient on the market.
      Simple music / file transfer system - simply connect the supplied usb lead and it's drag and drop heaven. The lead also acts as the charger once connected to your usb port.
      Only thing that does get annoying is the lack of shuffle, you can split your files into folders though, but this obviously takes time and maintenance.
      The new feature here being the addition of a built in speaker to the rear of the player. Nice thought, but I find I still always use the player as a portable headphone player instead of a loud speaker.
      Sound quality is as expected from such a small unit, a bit tinny, but suitable for close quiet listening.
      If you're after something to annoy your fellow passengers on the bus or train, i'd go for something more powerful like some separate speakers.
      A good idea from Creative, but I can't see them selling out anytime soon.
      I've rated the item based on it's new feature - as i still think the original is one of the best products on the market as a portable MP3 player.
