iPod Killer Review: Creative Zen Vision:M

Post by barnes » Thu Apr 19, 2007 2:42 am

I recently picked up a Creative Zen Vision: M from Newegg during a good sale with a male in rebate. ($150 total.)

30gb HDD
320x258 Resolution Screen
Xvid, DivX, And many more Video Playback.
Awesome brightly colored faces. (I choose Green.)

I've been an iPod fan for quite some time, no issues, great software, incredibly easy to use, just all around a great product, no contest. After to much tinkering with custom firmwares, my iPod has dies. Leaving me standed for some time with out music on the go.

Then I found the Zen. I debated, and finally, pulled the trigger. Newegg pulls through with quick cheap shipping, no complaints. (Ordered Thursday night, got it Monday.) So, I give them a 5 out of 5.

Now onto the player. I feared using Windows Media Player. Not my favorite, but usable. A little playing around, and I got confortable, no issues. I plugged in the Zen, let it charge, and came back, and my music all on it. Organized, clean, fine.

Updating and adding songs, videos and photos works just like iTunes, and I love it!

Adding new music to WMP is a hassal. No "File>Add Folder" deal, but found a **** and drag method shortcut.

-Amazing design.
-Super bright screen, amazing picture.
-Easy to use menu, awesome "My Shortcut" button for easy access to your favorite stuff.

-A bit bulky. Larger then an 80gb iPod Video 5.5gen.
-Not as easy to use as an iPod admititly.

Just a brief review for you! Enjoy!

Vision M is no doubt a near perfection product. I've used it before, it is so clear that I almost want to ditch my PSP

I forgot that I wrote this! Yes, its short, but just wanted to get my ideas out to the community.

The price at the moment is about $150

One big issue I have is the fact that 'The' is considered part of the artist name, so there is quite a huge list of 'The' bands, where iPods reconginze 'The' as nothing, and sorts by the following word. I'm looking for a way to fix it.
