Written on: 04/10/2009 by andylawed (24 reviews written)

If you're looking for a MP3 player that plays nice music then this gadget is for you. What I don't like about it was the interface and buttons are quite annoying. The battery life is also very mediocre.
It's performance was slow and sometimes freezes. Try something else… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2009

Whilst this Creative Zen 4GB was a bargain at £40 a year ago. I still think my Samsung S3 has a better sound.
I had to return it for repair a week before the warranty expired and to be fair they did send a replacement.
BUT I noticed that a few reviewers have had the same locking up and dying problem. So on reflection Don't bother with this Mp3 player.
It just shows that we all need to checkout the reviews first Eh!… Read Full Review

This review is basically based on my experiences, I ' ve made, by testing a sample I lent from a classmate. Thus meaning, it is possible that I missed to mention a couple of important features.
The Creative Zen Stone is designed pretty much straight forward. I wouldn ' t say it ' s unattractive, but neither would it win an award for being the most beautiful mp3. Anyways, on the top of it, you will find a small display, providing the user with the most important information ' s.

“I bought the Zen 4GB as a replacement for an old 512MB...”

Written on: 13/10/2008 by Greenite (5 reviews written)

I bought the Zen 4GB as a replacement for an old 512MB MP3 player which cost almost as much as I paid for the Zen ( £50), so this was a big update for me.

Though not massive by todays standards the Zen's 4GB is enough to store a good few hundred pictures, music tracks and 10s of videos at the same time, but for those who want more storage, the Zen fortunately comes in other sizes (up to 32GB) and an SD memory card slot to exapand its capacity (though doiing so means messing about with importing… Read Full Review

“I brought this MP3, as I wanted something a bit more...”

Written on: 18/09/2008 by Nesty (4 reviews written)

I brought this MP3, as I wanted something a bit more different than the usual Apple chain gang.

Initially I am pleased with it. The operation is ok, though the instructions could be a bit better. It takes a bit of time to get used too. For example deleting a song and putting them into category's I didn't find easy.

Also if you are plugging this via a car head unit, (instead of earphones) you will have to have the volume at full whack to get anything out. Hence drains the battery a lot more… Read Full Review

One more thing I forgot to add. Hardly none of the buttons are illuminated. If you want to use it raise volume/program it in dark conditions, you will be pushing all the wrong buttons!

Written on: 27/03/2008 by term5worker (6 reviews written)

The Creative Zen 4GB is a nice looking MP3 player with a clear and bright screen. I have the Poorer 2GB version, but as it has is takes SD cards I can upgrade in with an 8 GB card giving 10GB which is more than enough.
The creative Zen lets you navigate through your songs easily, although a frustrating part is trying to access the graphic equaliser while playing a song, there is no quick link to do it in one press of a button.
The video playback is clear, although a build in speaker would have… Read Full Review

The features may be attractive but the reliability is horrifying. My friends and i own a collective 5 players and they break down around once a month! The worst case was 3 hours. The brand new player broke down after 3 hours. Unless you have a lot of patience and free time, creative products are a no no
