thanks, they've been out of stock for ages and i've been waiting for them to come back. It's half the price of the shuffle, does the same job and IMO looks better. HOT!
if you add some £6 sony headphones(the supplies ones are supposedly iffy) you can get it even cheaper with GC.

EDIT: 24.32 with the sony fontapia headphones

be gentle guys 1st Deal posted :-)

The ZEN Stone can be bought elsewhere for around £27.99 delivered but the bargain speakers at just the right price to hit the £30 google checkout mark just seemed too good a combination.

Sorry colours dont match :-( :o

Here a link to a review of the speakers (in yet a different colour) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/customer-reviews/B0009P5HB8/sr=8-4/qid=1180637701/ref=cm_cr_dp_all/002-3139687-2536814?ie=UTF8&n=172282&qid=1180637701&sr=8-4#customerReviews

p.s. Agreed that upgrading the headphones would be another good way of qualifying for good old google checkout :thumbsup:
#3
come on everyone, this is a brilliant deal :o
#4
Not for me as I've got an iPod, but a very good deal, will tell the old man - anything to stop him listening to radio 4, it does my head in. Radio 1 all the way!
#5
Another choice would be
1 [COLOR=black][B] Creative ZEN Stone - Digital player - flash 1 GB - WMA, MP3, protected WMA (DRM 9) - black [/COLOR] [/B] - [COLOR=#666666] Creative ZEN Stone - Digital player - flash 1 GB - WMA, MP3, protected WMA (DRM 9) - black [/COLOR] £24.36 1 [COLOR=black][B] Extra Value H-909 Silver Headphones - 3.5" Connector [/COLOR] [/B] - [COLOR=#666666] Extra Value H-909 Silver Headphones - 3.5" Connector [/COLOR] £4.99 1 [COLOR=black][B] Extra Value Earphone + Mic With Volume Control [/COLOR] [/B] - [COLOR=#666666] Extra Value Earphone + Mic With Volume Control [/COLOR] £1.99

After checkout inc shipping = £25.80

Headphones for comfort, earplugs for portability.

Yep & this deal is for the Zen Stone + the Creative Speakers (in white) both delivered for £24.82 (after google checkout of course).

Looking back at my original post I perhaps could have made it a bit clearer.

Ah well lesson learned!

Would it be possible for an admin to tidy up my "guddle" a bit to clarify it a bit (& perhaps put total price in the title).

Thanks
#10
Ouch - just dropped from 27 to 17 degrees of heat.

Would love some feedback as to why voted cold !
#11
i'd imagine someone with a lot of rep power voted cold lol.

I think it might be better if the deal was listed without speakers...by all means mention it prominently in the post and the other options available but its not the main selling point for the item or whatever :s
#12
I think your right, though I do think that the speakers are a bargain in thier own right & when you add in the great price for the ZEN stone & then the Google checkout cherry on top :santa:

Just in case anyone is interested the cheapest place I've found an armband for this is Evesham @ £8.99 + 3% Quidco - not in stock but then no one has it yet. (Can be pre-ordered).
#13
I voted cold by accident! Went to click hot and completely missed the button. That was just 2 seconds ago though and I don't have any rep power.

Sorry, Tomb :(

Indeed, even better without speakers.
#14
Regarding the player: the 10 hour battery life is exagerated; the battery lasts about 6 to 7 hours max. The sound quality is also far from great and cannot compete with the similar Apple model (which costs more).

Note: Google Checkout £10 off discount will expire on June 11! No more discount after that date!
#15
Purchased the pair just now. Dont know whether done in haste.

Anyways Voted hot!!
#16
Customer service is crap. (see previous creative product comment). As with most companies they are great until something goes wrong.
Haven't voted but should really vote icey cold.
#17
it comes with a lanyard/neckstrap, whatever right?

Consider yourself forgiven Poisonjam - just remember to mention it to the priest at your next confession!

Aint got mine yet so cant comment personally.

Judging by reviews I've seen they all rate it reasonably highly! Is it possible you got a duff one?

ignore alien7's posts it is an excellent player if you have a good set of headphones. the ipod shuffle is almost double the price with less functionality.

the battery life also depends on the bit rates of the songs you put on it and the volume level you have the player set to. 320kbps on max volume is bound to last 6-7 hours. I encode all my tracks variable bit rate with a min level of 96 and a max of 192 this makes the tracks small whilst retaining the quality. i can get about 250 songs on the player at this level as most songs are 4-5 mins long.

its a great player but oddly dvd.co.uk doesnt do the white model now which is the one i got from there. maybe i got the last one :)

Also if anyone uses wma then you get more on, but the battery life suffers correspondingly...

just an observation, might help someone.
#30
Creative sound quality is excellent, I don't know where alien7 is getting his information from. This is a superb deal.
#31
had a look at these in currys today as i've not seen one in the flesh... was astonished to see them priced at £55.

of course there's always a high st premium, but almost double?

sheesh.
#32
Sossidge,

Moral of the story: Never buy anything in Dixons/Currys/PC World.
#33
true, although their 4gb creative zen + for £80 a couple of months back still hasn't been beaten. I only pop my head in for a nose when I've finished in tk maxx anyway...
#34
Mrs Scaramanaga is interested, but she wants one with a screen.
This doesn't appear to have one and yet the Creative site boasts that you can

"quickly get to the music you really want to hear"

Does anyone how the navigation works on this, as uit just seems to have forward and back buttons...?

It has a skip folder option as well.

My order arrived today in 2 boxes one reasonably sized box with the speakers inside & one about the size of a DVD player box that had the teeny Zen Stone in it - very strange choice of packaging ebuyer !!

The Stone is exellent & unbelievable value for money.

Have tried it with the supplied earphones which aint too bad (ok for running) - One I plugged my decent earphones in they do indeed rock!

Just about to unpack the speakers to see what I've got for less than £6 :-D
#37
Well I never :-)

They aint bad.

Hardly any bass & you have to crank up the volume on the player but my 2 girls are dancing about the room to s-club 7 as I type................ In their defence they are only 5 & 7.

Jobs a good un
#38
noooo mine hasn't come yet and I want it before tommorow when I go for a run :p
#39
Nice find for a good deal. Was going to buy one from Play.com for £28 but this gets me some discs cheaply too. :)

Aren't S-Club a bit before their time?

(What a strange sentence)
