Creative Zen Vision W debuts in US

 

As expected, Creative went and released the Zen Vision W here in the US. We know that this hit Singapore late last month at COMEX, and CNET managed to review one already -- but what we didn't know is that the Zen Vision will play content from Amazon's...

Creative Zen Vision:W (30GB)

 

Creative's latest portable media player has plenty to offer, but it's lacking in a few important areas.

Nice-looking 16:9 screen. Good video quality and format support. Powerful built-in speaker. Intuitive interface. Removable battery. Supports PlaysForSure and Audible. TV output at 720-by-480. Excellent viewing angle.

No kickstand. Short audio battery life. Body feels bulky. No DVR feature. No video playlists or sequential playback.

on the vision's screen, photos look sharp and crisp, and colors are vivid with true blacks. there are pan, zoom, and rotate functions, though the zoom feature is quite slow, and thumbnails take a while to load the first time, because they're generated...

Creative Zen Vision:W

 

Creative has literally expanded its Zen Vision line with the new Zen Vision:W portable media player: the W stands for widescreen. Unfortunately, the player isn't particularly sleek, and its audio battery life is shorter than it should be for a device...

Nice-looking 16:9 screen. Good video quality and format support. Powerful built-in speaker. Intuitive interface. Removable battery. Supports PlaysForSure and Audible. TV output at 720-by-480. Excellent viewing angle.

No kickstand. Short audio battery life. Body feels bulky. No DVR feature. No video playlists or sequential playback.

This is a solid product with lots of features, good audio/video quality and a decent price, but its bulk and somewhat disappointing battery life keep it from shining.

Creative Zen Vision W review

 

Editor's note: A new, less bulky version of the Zen Vision W 60GB will be available soon in the U.S. market. It will reportedly have the same weight and dimensions (5.27 inches by 2.95 inches by .86 inch) and weight (9.73 ounces) as the current 30GB...

Beautiful wide-screen display; durable design; intuitive interface; holds up to 60GB; supports wide array of video formats; plays FM radio; supports TiVo To Go and limited movie downloads; syncs with Outlook; removable battery; CompactFlash slot is...

Bulky body that's just a tad heavy; no line-in audio or video recording; no kickstand; TiVo To Go requires file conversion and third-party MPEG-2 decoder.

The bulky but easy-to-use Creative Zen Vision W and its nice screen will dazzle video lovers who don't require video recording.

Creative Zen Vision:M

 

The Creative Zen Vision:M is our new favorite iPod alternative, though we doubt it will sway the iPod-loving masses.

Good design. Excellent screen. Very good audio and video quality. Broad feature set.

Short battery life. Requires a dongle to sync, charge, and output to TV. ; function Video(mypage, myname, w, h, scroll) { var winl = (screen.width - w) / 2; var wint = (screen.height - h) / 2; winprops =...

The Zen Vision:M's interface is identical to that of its bigger brother, with every bit as much polish and logic as that of the iPod. Getting around is simple, and we have lots of love for Creative's contextual menus, but the My Shortcut button proved...

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 W - a Look Back

 

Digging though old posts I came across a review I started but never finished dating back to 2006. The photos are even watermarked before we had a logo.

Creative Zen Vision W - Portable Media Player Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

Portable media players are second class citizens compared to MP3 and small format video-capable music players like the iPod Video and Zune when it comes to sales figures. Why? The little guys are about half the size, which suits those who want...

Fantastic widescreen display is perfect for movie playback: high resolution, great brightness and super-saturated color with a good viewing angle and sharpness. Sound quality is also excellent and the FM radio gets better reception than average, though...

No add-on hardware for recording video. Natively supports JPEG format photos only- RAW photographers can backup images from a card to the Zen Vision W but they can't view them. Requires included drivers to mount the entire drive as a removable disk...

If you're a video collector, DVD ripper (we won't tell anyone), YouTube addict or are enamored with Amazon's Unbox service and want to take your videos with you anywhere, the Creative Zen Vision W is an excellent choice. We recommend the 60 gig if you...
