Advantages: great little MP3 player
Disadvantages: small screen and doesn't work with mac
This is the Creative Zen V Plus. I bought this product just over a year ago now, and was quite impressed by this little MP3 player.
The appearance of this device really is quite impressive, and the 8GB model comes in 2 colors, the glossy black and blue or red (I had the red one). These vibrant colors against the glossy black really makes this device pop out at you. The buttons on the front of the MP3 player are play/pause, back button and the joystick to navigate about the menus. On the left hand side of the device is a slider which when pushed up locks the device and when held down turns the player on or off. On the other side is the volume buttons. On the top of the Zen V Plus is the headphone slot and the USB port slot.
The 1.5" screen is very vibrant and a high quality. This can turn choosing a theme for the device a very lengthy process as they all look so good that it will be impossible to decide. The one downside to this is that the screen is quite small and makes watching videos on this device quite hard. So i wouldn't recommend this product if watching videos on the device is one of the main features that you are after.
The 8GB of memory space is plenty enough for all your favorite songs and a couple of videos.
The sound quality is very good and very clear at all volumes, which makes listening to music on this device a dream!
The player has all the features you need on a music device. It has; music playback; video playback; the ability to create playlists and an FM radio.
This was a great little MP3 player, until I bought a Mac and was unable to use it as it is not compatible with the Mac and only uses windows media player and WMA files.
What you get in the box:
Zen V Plus
Creative Headphones (the only headphones that stay in my ear!)
The installation disk
I would recommend this to anyone as an MP3 player, but not as a video player as the screen is just too small!
Summary: Good for music, but no videos
