Advantages: Cheap and reliable
Disadvantages: not many features (e.g. no games) on it
There are a number of different features on this MP3 player, these include:
FM radio- I found that my FM radio was really dependable and always had signal to the radio stations I wanted to listen to, this is good because where I was working, there was very little signal and even some plug in radios in the building couldn't get radio signal.
Photos and videos- you can upload photos and videos onto your Zen to look through or use as a screensaver (photos only) which is quite a nice feature, though the screen is very small so you won't get good picture quality from this.
Themes- You can change the themes or colours of the background and menus, this is nice because you can personalise your Zen to suit you, I liked to keep my main menu blue.
Date and Time- This is shown in the top right hand screen and is just a handy reminder of what time it is, there is also an alarm on this MP3 player, but I never really used it because I had other alarm clocks in my room.
Music Library- Music is very easily uploaded into your Zen and you can then search through the Music Library to find the album or songs that you want to listen to. It is really straight forward to listen to music on this device which is of course very important as it is the main feature that this device was bought for in the first place. The screen is laid out nicely and very easy to understand and also Playlists can be created within the Music Library so you can pick all your favourite songs and play them easily.
2GB Memory- This was more than enough for me as I had lots (over 15 at least) of different music albums on this device and never ran out of room, however I only had one uploaded picture on it use as a screensaver, which would have saved me memory.
Sound Quality- The sound quality through this device is very good, the music is very clear and crisp, though it also depends on how good your earphones are as more expensive earphones will provide better sound quality than the cheaper ones. The volume can be turned up very high and I have never had to use it on full volume to drown out the noise around me.
This is a super small MP3 player and is about the size of the palm of my hand, it has a small screen on the top of it to allow you to navigate through the features and music and also allow you to know the name of the artist and song that is playing.
There is also a 'play/pause' and 'back' button on this Zen and a little joy stick to allow you to move up and down the features and scroll right and left through your music selection, it is very simple and straight forward to use and also looks modern as well.
I am not sure what my fiancé paid for this 3 years ago, but you can pick one up now for in around £20-£30 which is a fantastic price for a simple MP3 player in my opinion, and I got lots of use out of mine so I would recommend buying one.
Overall I think that this is a great MP3 player, especially for anyone who just wants one with simple features and doesn't want to spend too much money. It is really easy to use and looks rather good as well, and is small and light so it is easily carried in your pocket when you are listening to it. Also the battery lasts ages on this Zen, which is a great feature because you don't have to continuously charge it.
I would give this MP3 5 out of 5 stars, because it is cheap an plays music with no hassle and no fuss, it is a really handy MP3 with some nice features and I am really glad I have it, mine has survived the test of time and is 3 years old, and I still use it occasionally when my iPhone is low on battery and I am going for a run.
