Good: Mini Movies, Great Sound
Bad: Cheap feel,White Wheel
Comment: When the box arrived, I really wondered if there was anything in it.
This is so light, I worry a bit about loosing it.
It is, however very cool and the sound is GREAT.
I filled it up with two movies and 1100 wmas and mp3s.
That I dragged and dropped into the correct folders in the player.
One of the things that I always find a bit annoying is that if you want to watch your own Movies, that you paid hard eared money for, that you cant easily convert them into something that you can use on your PMP ( personal media player), searching around I found
Which converts quite nicely, if not aways in the language you expected :)
So far I like it and its not so small that I have trouble pressing buttons, that were designed for tiny people 25% my size.
Pictures, movies mp3s wmas, oogs.. overall I say great, now lets have one with 16GB as you cant add more than a 2Gb Sd card, with the current firmware.. who knows they may possibly update it to take the higher capacity cards at some point.
Good: WMA format, not an IPOD, sound quality (with Sennheiser headphones), ease of use
Bad: No AC charger supplied with player. Not able to find a maufacturer website that has any info on product and accessories!
Comment: Needed to replace my battered RIO Carbon. Thought I would get a Creative Zen but product felt clunky and not very durable. Passing through Hong Kong found this gem. Easy to use, small enough to slip into a pocket and sound quality (albeit with non-Iriver headphones) excellent. WMA file format ideal as straight transfer from RIO. Does not feel as if it has the same tough quality as the RIO, but nonetheless a worthy successor. Extra 3Gb space welcome. Great value for money exceptional. The 8Gb model in Hong Kong cost under £110.
