If there is a MP3 player that has really revolutionized the way people viewed MP3 Players, and an MP3 player that is truly in its own category, then it has to be the Zen creative MP3 player.
Indeed, many people who had written off MP3 players with the advent of iPods and who later come into contact with the Creative Zen MP3 player have found themselves having to reconsider their write-offs, as the Creative Zen MP3 Player is a gadget that is able to compete on equal footing with even the best of iPods on a number of important aspects that matter, both to the person with a keen ear for music and a good eye for fascinating gadgetry.
Among the most fascinating of Creative Zen MP3 Player’s qualities is compactness, coming as it does in a cute compact box. At about 8.2 centimeters by 5.4 centimeters, the Creative Zen MP3 is essentially a credit-card sized music player (of course slightly thicker), meaning that this is a highly mobile music player that you can tuck into your pocket or handbag, and quite literally forget about it till you need to make use of it, when you just fish it out, hook it up and get going, music-wise. We are living at a time when the more ‘compact it is, the more alluring it is perceived to be’ and the makers of the Creative Zen seem to have realized this early on, and crafted their product accordingly.
If what you are purchasing is an original and new Creative Zen MP3 Player, then you are bound to get it alongside its USB cable, earphones and even an installation CD. Of course, while these are standard features to expect with every MP3 player purchase, it turns out that some of the lower-end MP3 players actually don’t come with them, and attempting to find some that work for them can turn out to be a very tricky undertaking indeed.
In line with electronics best practice today, the Creative Zen Mp3 Player naturally comes with a TFT screen, which means that it is a gadget one would never find themselves hesitating to operate in the public; as music players with poorer quality screens are won’t to cause one to.
Beyond exteriors though, if you are a serious music player enthusiast, it is likely that you will want to know what a particular player’s performance in its core functions is, and in this regard, the Creative Zen MP3 player does not fail the test, as the sound quality output it gives is in quite a class of its own; and it turns out to be a sturdy music player you can use for quite a bit of time continuously, without it showing signs of operational distress. Now the idea of a music player showing signs of operational distress might seem laughable, until you get to use one of the lower end music players, which you can’t actually use continuously for a period of more than say five hours at a go, before starting to see signs of operational distress.
