It shouldn't be surprising that Anything But iPod likes the Creative Zen Vision:M (there does seem to be just a little bit of bias in the site's name), and ABi's review of the Vision:M certainly does highlight the PMP's strong points. Among the ...

Creative ZEN Vision:M 30GB Media Player - Black (2.5

 

Despite a few shortcomings, Creative's Zen VisionM is a great Apple iPod alternative. I tested a 30GB shipping model of the video-ready music device ($300 as of 7/21/06), which possesses the finest color screen I've ever seen on a portable player.

High audio qualityHigh audio quality ; Great screen for photos and video

Audio codec support somewhat limited ; Requires dongle to charge and sync files

The VisionM has a touchpad and delivers great-looking video. However, it needs a dongle to sync files.

The Zen Vision:M is our new favorite iPod alternative and should appeal to lots of people, but we have a feeling it's still not going to sway the iPod-loving masses.

Creative Zen VISION: M review

 

Creative Zen Vision:M

Available in five colors, the Creative Zen Vision:M has an incredible screen, a simple interface, excellent video battery life, an FM tuner and recorder, and a voice recorder. It features a customizable Shortcut button, and it supports a wide range of...

The Creative Zen Vision:M has no iTunes-like video content--yet. Some will find the touch-pad controller frustrating. The black model scratches easily. The documentation is skimpy. You must use an adapter for transfers and power, meaning that...

The dazzling, DRM-friendly Creative Zen Vision:M gives the iPod a run for the money as the current high-capacity WMA champ.

Creative Zen Vision: M

 

You know a device has a great user interface when someone utterly unfamiliar with it accomplishes a task within 10 seconds of picking it up. Apple's iPods pass this test with aplomb; Creative's Zen Vision: M utterly fails it. It's a significant flaw in...

The Zen Vision: M is a superb choice if you’re into video and all-you-can-eat, music-to-go services such as Rhapsody and Napster: It sounds and looks every bit as good as the video iPod, even if it isn’t as sexy. Fashionistas and iTunes addicts, on the...

Zen Vision:M

 

Creative Lab's 30GB Zen Vision:M multimedia player does pretty much everything a video iPod does, does it well, and then it does a little more. And it comes in a variety of fruity flavors. White, even.

I know that the leader of some crazy iPod cult who dresses his kids as iPod Minis for Halloween is reading this right now and scrawling my name onto a list of enemies of the Apple Empire, but I don't care -- the truth must be told.
