Creative zen v is MP3 player that fits into palm of your hand with round edges and built in microphone and voice recorder. I got 2GB version but there is 4GB too and that's plenty of music, pictures etc. Music was already on it when I bought it on eBay. Battery lasts reasonably well though I haven't tested it on 20 hour long coach trip yet. Plug into your computer and enjoy.
A Little Genius
Don't bother buying an expensive system that can be quite complicated for young people to use. The navigation for this unit is simple and ideal for any music lover.
Creative have always managed to deliver exceptional products and excellant value for money. The sound quality is outstanding. If I am going to criticism anything....it will be the headphones. Everyones ears are different; purchase the inner ear version with support. You will experience far better clarity and the noise level can be reduced by 30 - 50% (saving battery life).
Only use the original transfer and charge cable supplied by Creative. I've tried others...they don't work. Keep the unit charged and you will enjoy using it.
I've always rated Creative; they have made other audio systems. They have not done anything wrong by producing " A LTTLE GENIUS".
excellent mp3 for the gym!
This is my second creative zen player, I originally owned the 8gb v+ version which served me well for 4 years until I lost it. :(
The 2gb v version is a great, it may not have the same video capabilities of the v+ but to be honest who cares on a player this small.
There are endless features on this thing, the most of which I don't use but are really nice to have, line in recording for example but where it really excels is in appearance, ease of use, compatibility with windows and battery life which imho is all you can ask form a player of this size. The only down side is no radio.
If you see one of these in good nick grab it, you won't be disappointed!!
Needed a small media/music player for entertainment on the hoof, @work & leisure.
I Loved the size tonal quality & storage capacity.
Not the newest, fastest most capacious but certainly the least obtrusive or precious
A simple Mp3 player that is good value
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
I bought this because I wanted a cheap mp3 player that worked with Napster on their 'napster-to-go' subscription.
I already had a 2GB model and I think this is an ideal and simple type of mp3 that is compatible with napster.
Battery life is short but you can charge up via USB and you don't need to load any kind of CD software onto your computer.
You can usually buy one on ebay for £10-£15.
