Last week I made an unexpected trip to Best Buy, and they finally had the mp3 players out where people could actually try them out! (Last time they told me they got stolen too often to have them out). So I was finally able to get my hands on the Creative Zen products and iPods to compare. The mircophoto was small! Much smaller than I thought! Not as thin as the ipod nano, but shorter, and I would definitely be less worried about breaking it. Plus it hold 8 gigs and look at all the colors!
The Vision M was very compariable to the ipod, slightly thicker, but I don’t know how much I care about that. The picture and video quality was great! I found the menus and navigation very easy, much more inuitive than the ipod.
Originally I thought I would get the Microphoto, but for only a $100 more the Vision M has 30 gig and plays videos, plus a larger screen for viewing photos if that’s what I want to do with it. I think I want the black one, it looked very cool, now to start saving pennies!
