Creative ZEN Conclusion

T he Creative ZEN 4GB digital multimedia player is available for a price that varies from 95 Euros to 130 Euros. The credit card sized multimedia player has a neat up-to-date design. It delivers high quality sound that is adjustable to one's personal preferences. The 2.5 inch colour LCD monitor reproduces very clear high quality videos and pictures. Transferring files from the computer to the Creative ZEN is fast through the included USB cable that serves as a battery charger at the same time. That brings us to a disadvantage of this media player; you always need a computer for recharging the player. Another disadvantage is the scratch-prone monitor. There are sufficient optional protective cases available though. The Creative ZEN hasn't been equipped with speakers so it is not possible to listen to music without earphones. I don't think one can expect that for this price of around 100 Euros. All in all the Creative ZEN is a multimedia player certainly worth its money. In combination with a cover to protect the ZEN I would definitely call it a recommender.
