Creative Zen Stone Plus with Speaker

 

There's nothing drastically different in the new Zen Stone Plus except the built-in speaker. If you've read my review on the previous model , this may seem rather redundant. But for those of you who haven't, let me clue you in on one of the smallest...

Coming to the most obvious feature that sets it apart (the speaker, that is) I have to say that while it may not be loud, it can easily take on most cellphones. If you were expecting it to sound like an iPod Dock or something in that league, think...

Ever wonder how companies sometimes manage to cram so many features into a small device? I do too. And here's another for your amazement. If you thought the Zen Stone was a tiny powerhouse for music, you'll love the Zen Stone Plus. Design The design...

The Zen Stone Plus is a great player as it is. Even the FM pickup is good. At a price of Rs. 5,000, it’s a great buy for a 2GB player, except for the fact that it's super slow. It could be an issue with just this piece I got for review, and I really...

Creative Zen Stone Plus (2GB, black)

 

Creative has a penchant for offering a wide array of choices for the MP3 player consumer, so it comes as little surprise that the company decided to add a screen and some extra features to the ultra-basic Zen Stone. The new Plus version, which comes...

The Creative Zen Stone Plus comes in a choice of six colors and offers 2GB of storage for less than $70. It includes some handy extras, such as an FM tuner, a stopwatch, and a voice recorder. The player also has good sound quality

The Zen Stone Plus interface is not totally intuitive, and the screen is too small to display full track info. It also doesn't offer full ID3 tag sorting for music, and the rated battery life is unimpressive

For those who want a supersmall and cute MP3 player that offers more than just simple music playback, the Creative Zen Stone Plus fits the bill nicely.

Creative has given its barebones ZEN Stone a radical update. The new ZEN Stone Plus adds several features the original Stone lacked: an OLED screen, twice the storage (i.e., 2GB), an FM tuner, voice recording, a stopwatch/clock, and EQ options. Not...

Small and lightweight. FM radio. Voice recording. Stopwatch and clock. EQ options. Can delete songs on device itself. Snazzy date/time display.

Short USB cable. So-so earbuds. Annoyingly long start-up time. No way to monitor voice recorder.

The ZEN Stone Plus, at 2GB, has twice the storage of the original ZEN Stone, a screen, FM radio, and voice recording. This is about as cheap as it gets for a reliable 2 GB player (the screen-less 1GB iPod Shuffle is $80), but if storage isn't your main...

The Creative Zen Stone Plus is a tiny MP3 player which, despite a few lingering issues, offers a dependable music listening experience for those leading active lifestyles. This skipping-stone sized player is just a half-inch thick and weighs less...

Value price, good sound, LED display

The Creative Zen Stone Plus is a tiny, minuscule player that includes all the necessary portable music functions at a reasonable price and more.

Creative Zen Stone Plus Review

 

Shortly after Creative released its screenless Shuffle competitor, the Zen Stone, they upped the ante and released the Zen Stone Plus. For around thirty dollars more, the Stone Plus added a screen and a few fairly standard MP3 player features such as...

Solid Build, Small form factor, Nice selection of optional accessories, MSC (any OS)

Awkward interface, Cannot browse individual songs, Lagging interface when music is playing, Poor FM reception

First I would like to say I am a fan of Creative's Zen line of MP3 players. Although they have their issues and deficiencies like any MP3 player, overall they are a solid product line. The Zen Stone Plus has some good things going for it such as MSC...

Creative Zen Stone Plus MP3 player review

 

Almost a year on from its launch the Creative Zen Plus has been upgraded, but it's not just a case of the company adding more memory or offering a colour change to entice users. Somehow while keeping the size small, the company has added a speaker so...

Screen, 4GB, USB socket, speaker on the back

Sound not fantastic

Small, cheap, but good

Expert review by:

Creative Zen Stone Plus

 

The iPod may be a cultural phenomenon, but that doesn't mean it's the best media player ever. Step forward the Creative Zen Stone Plus, a featherweight marvel that features twice the storage of the 1GB shuffle and yet manages to cost less

Costs less than the shuffle for more, Includes a screen, Recognised by iTunes, Available in six colours

Available in six colours, Can be sluggish to use and fill

Not as well-integrated with the Mac as an iPod shuffle, but it's cheaper and cuter
