Zen Touch 20GB Mp3 Player


A legitimate alternative to Apple's slimmer and lighter 20GB IPod, Creative's $240 Zen Touch has a more durable exterior and dramatically better battery life than the IPod. Nevertheless, while the Zen Touch may please buyers new to the Creative line,...

The Zen Touch retains the fine sound quality of previous Zens; but in simplifying the menus, it loses some good features--particularly in playlists

Creative Zen Touch


Another member of the Zen family challenges the Apple IPod.

Good player with great battery life lacks previous Zens' features.

Creative Zen Touch


The shortest distance between two points is a straight line, but is a straight line the best way to navigate your music files? The Zen Touch invades Apple's formerly exclusive territory of touch-driven interfaces with a finger-wide, vertical touch pad...

Touch pad greatly improves user interface. Excellent audio performance and battery life. Lots of capacity for the price.

No lossless compression. Requires a driver and software on PC side. The extra battery power adds weight. Backlight somewhat dim.

The Creative Zen Touch is a high-quality portable music player with innovative touchpad scrolling, outstanding audio quality, and super battery life. Its few flaws are minor.

Creative ZEN Touch (20GB)


Awesome battery life; innovative Touch Pad; excellent sound quality; simple and durable design, decent value.

Battery is not removable unlike another Zen model; some convenient menu features found in past Zens not included; LCD contrast could use work.

Lately, Creative has been churning out players with great battery life and excellent sound quality. The Zen Touch offers all this and more, making it a legitimate challenger to the Apple iPod.

Touching the Zen Touch


Not that we could read it, but we're stoked to see what appears to be the first hands-on review of the Zen Touch. Well, we're not that stoked, because the thing is nice and all, but once they put it up against the 4th and 1st gen iPods, you just kind...

permission to be relieved, sir


Creative Zen Touch - Accessories The Touch comes in of those transparent plastic, tightly sealed-shut boxes which are impossible to open up without damaging the package or your limbs. Well, at least we already got to see in the store what we were about to

The Zen Touch doesn't exactly live up to the expectations. Whereas it was introduced as the ultimate iPod-killer thingy (no denying the similarities, even not by us DAP-freaks), appeal has only grown ever since the prices have become more reasonable....

Creative Zen Touch Player: Love Me Tender


If you love listening to music then you might want to consider such a beautiful solution as a new Creative player from the Zen product family. A portable audio player supporting all popular formats (MP3, WMA and WAV), it is also remarkable for its...

ZEN Touch 2


This MP4 player makes us wonder why we should settle for just watching movies and listening to music. Even if these are the main functions we value in a portable media player, it doesn't hurt to have all the extras, such as internet access and apps,...

We loved all the extra features that are included with this MP4 player

This player really needs more storage space

It has many features, including internet access and apps, that make it comparable to the iPod touch.

Amp up your music with the sleek Zen Touch. The Zen Touch breaks new ground, introducing the first linear touch-sensitive pad controller in a digital music player. Navigate your music collection with astonishing ease and speed. Play all day and all...
