Creative Zen is an Mp3 Player
. While it is way higher in quality it is outshined by the Ipods
advertisement. The difference between them is alot. The battey life is way longer than the Ipods. The Audio is also topnotch. You can Convert your media files to a higher quality with the audio converter(more on that seen below). It also comes with a few assessories included with the actual Player. All for $250 which is half of what an ipod costs.
What i think is Most important is how you get your music. The creative mp3 players, support WMA, MP3's, Which are the main ones I use. The best thing is that if you preffer to buy online music, you have many resources you can use. You can use Napster
, pay $1 per song, or pay $15 for unlimited downloads called napster-to-go. You can also download music from Peer-to-peer sites, which is essentially free music(try looking up limewire or bearshare). 1000 songs for $1OOO DOLLARS?!? How about 1000 songs FOR FREE.
The Creative Zen comes with software you can use to sync your music and comes with an audio converter(it came with mine)which you can us to convert MP3's to WMA, and vice versa, wich you can use with some other audio formats. I use the software to convert 4MB MP3's to 1.5MB WMA's, Are you following me? Making you have more space for more songs. Something you wish you could do with your Ipod.
