Creative Zen 4GB

 

Can the new flash-based Zen give the iPod nano a run for its money?

Creative has come up trumps with its new, flash-based, mini media player. Pitched as a direct competitor to the iPod nano it beats it on most fronts with the one exception being that its physical controls aren't quite as nice to use. It comes in a...

Creative Zen review

 

Creative's back with a serious-looking mini media player. How's it going to fare against Apple's ubiquitous iPod Nano?

Slick and talented, the Zen is the movie-playing flash player to beat

PC Plus review: Creative Zen PMC

 

If you don't own a PC capable of TV taping, it's hugely disappointing. Without the ability to directly record video, and no easy way to port DVDs to the PMC, you'd be better off buying a portable DVD player.

Creative Zen NX

 

Since the launch of the iPod, every hard drive based MP3 has wanted to ape its design and resulting success. The Creative Zen NX is unfortunately no different. Cased in a - you guessed it - white metal body, everything from the soft carry pouch to the...

USB 2.0 connection this time; Capacity

You’ve seen it before; not an iPod-beater

For users of the creative range before, this is just the Jukebox re-packaged. That said the smaller more convenient size - it’s about the size of a small novel - will please those who want to fit this inside a jacket pocket. If it wasn’t for the iPod...

Is Microsoft's original favourite still a class act?

A reasonable performer hampered by Microsoft's apparent insularity

Creative Zen 4GB review

 

Creative's answer to the new iPod nano. Can it hold its own?

Competitive price ; Interface is great ; DivX support ; iTunes AAC support

It's plastic, not aluminium

The perfect iPod nano alternative

Creative Zen 4GB

 

You can't escape the fact that Apple's iPod defines portable media, but it certainly isn't the only option or the best. Take the latest addition to the Creative line-up as an example: the Zen is small, light, well designed and far more capable than the...

Good screen, Better file compatibility than the iPod, Radio and SD card slot

Interface not as good as the nano

If you own a PC, then this is a better media player than the iPod nano

Creative Zen 8GB review

 

Creative's superslim Zen has an attractive 2.5in colour display, an FM tuner, a built-in microphone, robust video- and photo-viewing capabilities and the ability to import contact management information. And the Creative Zen 8GB even plays music.

The Creative Zen 8GB lacks the Wi-Fi capabilities of the iPod touch, but has plenty else going for it and is a great choice for gadgeteers and audiophiles alike. A worthy award-winner.
