Creative Zen Micro Mp3 Player Review

By: IC

Jukebox Zen Micro Review With so many portable MP3 players it is hard to tell which one has the most features compared to many other MP3 players in the market. Those who just want a simple MP3 player will find the zen micro to be one of the easiest to operate music player devices today.

Since the jukebox micro is all about size and portability the hard drive can only hold about 4.7 Gigabytes worth of songs which can ad up to 1360 songs encoded at 128kbps which is today's quality standard (CD quality). There are other versions available which feature upgraded memory of up to 7GB which can hold around three thousand songs following the rule shown above.

As far as sound quality, the Company Creative has received several awards for sound and product quality, and we have seen several times in the past that Creative's reviews have been even better than iPod's. The exterior design of this particular MP3 player allows for several exchangeable colors, among the most popular ones we have white, black and blue. Besides its exteriors appearance one of the best features this small player has is the battery life which can go up to 14 hours of continuous MP3 playback, now you and I know that we won't be listening for 14 straight hours of music unless we are on a plane flying to destinations across the globe.

This MP3 player is mostly for younger folks who don't mind small menus and touch scrolling buttons, but be careful as to how hard you press these buttons since just a light touch is enough to make them react, you can always control the button sensitivity within the player's main menu. The software which is bundled with the player is easy to use and the installation is straight forward, although the organizer could have been improved in recent updates by the company as well as the firmware version.

This particular model has been such as success that the manufacturing company decided to upgrade the model by including a "photo" version with a color screen giving this small 8GB version a fully customizable background according to your favorite photos. The line of Zen micro MP3 players is quite innovative, so much that after its release iPod came up with a Nano version of its player in order to bring some market competition, and this is what started the war on full color screen mini-sized MP3 players. With many other companies joining the party the future of portable music players looks very promising.
