The Zen MicroPhoto's erratic behavior and dated design pushes Creative's quest to dethrone the iPod a step backward.

Long battery life Replaceable battery • Available in ten colors

Erratic performance Sensitive touchpad • Poor picture quality • Requires Windows XP

Nice color OLED screen. Very good sound quality. Good overall feature set. Removable battery.

Interface lags sometimes. Touch controls can be annoying.

The Creative Zen MicroPhoto is a good choice among small hard drive-based players for its removable battery, broad feature set, and very good sound quality.

The innovative touch pad that made its debut on the Creative Zen Micro carries over to the Photo, though it has been slightly improved. Foremost, Creative has decreased the sensitivity of the Low setting so that the pad doesn't seem nearly as touchy as...

The Creative Zen Micro Photo features a bright, colorful OLED that's viewable from any angle, and it's available in a choice of 10 body colors. This MP3 player also includes useful extra features such as a user-replaceable battery, a voice recorder, a...

Unfortunately, the Creative Zen Micro Photo doesn't let you listen to music and browse photos simultaneously, and album art is not supported at this time. The touch pad on this device can take some getting used to

The Creative Zen Micro Photo is an excellent full-featured MP3 player and, for its size, a decent photo viewer; it just doesn't combine the two effectively.

What's a Zen Micro Photo? The Zen Micro Photo is the newest MP3 player from Creative Technologies, an evolution of the Zen Micro player that came out earlier this year. The Zen Micro Photo is about the size of an iPod Mini, and features an 8gb MicroDrive,

The Zen Micro Photo is an improvement over the regular Zen Micro, although not as much as I would have liked. Despite its name, the ZMP isn't all that good for viewing photos. The screen quality and GUI are underwhelming, especially compared to its...

Creative Zen MicroPhoto Review

 

Creative Technology created a masterpiece when they developed the Zen MicroPhoto, the "TopTenREVIEWS Silver Award" winning mini mp3 player. This gadget not only looks good, but also feels good with an ergonomically correct design.

The MicroPhoto is a nice looking, and excellent sounding music player. You can also show your pictures to friends with the stunning display. If you're looking for something that also supports movies, check out the #1 product.

It's been quite awhile since Creative announced that they would come out with a color Zen Micro handheld, but now the wait is over. The new Creative Zen Micro Photo is an excellent portable audio and photo viewer and that makes it a definite Apple iPod...

Creative's Zen Microphoto matches the Nano's 1.5in screen and doubles memory capacity to 8GB. Not bad for a little 'un.

Creative knows what it's doing and the Zen Microphoto is one of its best ever machines. We're impressed

Performance in our formal testing was also pretty good. Files transferred at a rate of 3.6MB per second, which is a hair above average. We also came close to matching Creative's rated battery life of 15 hours, squeezing out 14.8 hours of playback. It's...

Creative Zen Micro Photo (8GB)

 

While the Zen Micro Photo is, indeed, an improvement over the original, photo and music playback just can't seem to live in sync.

Photo viewing ; Excellent price per MB ratio ; 8GB capacity ; Great audio quality

Unable to play music while viewing photos ; Doesn't support anything older than Win XP SP1 ; Hard to view display under sunlight

In our transfer test, the Micro Photo scored 3.6MB per second. We also got 14 hours and 10 minutes worth of playtime out of our review unit.
