I couldn't find this as being posted before so sorry if it has. Cheapest I could find elsewhere was £89.99. Amazon has the RRP as £149.99. Play have it for £149.99 so I think this may be a bargain.

I think with the Creative you can stream content to it from another computer. Usefull if you store all your music and video's on a PC and don't want to store them on this device.

Good find, going for £90+ on fleebay!

if is still within 1 month, i recon you can give them a call..
tell them that the price dropped and you are thinking of returning the item and buy agian..
i did that on an item recently and the lady on the phone was kind enough to offer me a refund ... :oops:

If I needed a MP3 player, I'd certainly be ordering one at this price!

whats the video conversion like? In previous players it has been tediously slow....

It's still tediously slow (depending on your computer I guess)... but it's still a great little player IMO

Hot deal thanksx

i bought the andy toys collection buzz from amazon at £37, then 2 weeks later the price dropped to £24.94 and they wouldnt refund me or even give me anything. they only do within 7 days they said. maybe i should have pushed a bit more

would never had bought this @ £150, neither am i paying £69.99 - because its a rip off! bring it down more amazon common!

Bear in mind this is the mark one...... mark 2 available with touchscreen for £20 more!
Still a red hot deal though, got my vote!

I thought that Amazon had done quite wel to bring it down to £69.99 ;-)! They may go down in price after Xmas I expect....like with most things.

eh? and in English this time?

I have the Sony NWZ------- as well. This does look like a good wee player, and the reviews are quite favourable...Does anyone have both? The Sony and a version of this? How do they compare, what do you use the most? Thanks.

there u go english boy! amended for ur pleasure :-D

Anyone know if it has AD2P Bluetooth?

thanks, ordered

Superb mp3 player at an incredible price. I bought this in january at £120 and was pleased at that price although I appreciate the x-fi2 is out now.
No bluetooth but the wifi is good on the 16gb and 32gb models, you can stream music/video/pictures from networked PC's in the house through this.

Extra £20 for touch screen, you pays your money.....

If I hadn't gone for the Sonys a day or so ago I would be all over this. Looks like a cracking deal. HOT!

Bear in mind that the SD card expansion slot WON'T integrate with your main library, unless Creative have actually supported one of their products with new drivers (!). This is the reason I went for a Sony NWZ-S639F 16GB - no point in expansion slot if you have to treat as a separate library in my personal opinion.

Otherwise, good devices. Sound far better than the equivalent iPod for sound quality (if you use the same earphones on each device) and almost as good as Sony devices. Neither are close to Cowon though.

have just cancelled as cant be doing with the long video transfer times as with the previous zen. Why cant they release an updated version of the vision M - still my best mp4 player ever even if it is massive!

Why is it expired?

Still using my Vision M daily - a great machine.

Can you not just drag and drop on this one like you can on the vision m?

NOT expired.

Looks like someone is suffering from last nights HUKD Christmas bash :santa:

There's expire chaos going on all over the place just now!

Looking at some reviews it seems you can drag and drop but most files cannot be played until converted to the right video size dimensions and format. Unlike the Vision M which plays pretty much anything you throw at it!

ok here comes the stupid question lol

does this have WLAN, like on the Ipods I would like to browse the net using this if possible?

Muco Gracias.

Bon Appetite

Jolly Good Show.

It has WLAN but as far as I am aware there is no browser for the web included. The WLAN is used for sharing music from your PC to the device....

Thought about that before I purchased, decided that it wasn't an issue for me. I have 2 4GB SD cards with all my classical music on, and just have the other genre's on the x-fi main storage - I tend to play one or the other over a period so the problem doesn't occur.

It also isn't an issue if you don't want to fill the x-fi storage as 16gb is alot of music!

Thanks very much for posting this deal mate, it's a right 'cracker' it must be said! :-D Heat added

Exactly - some people will stick video on the external card and music on the internal. 16GB is a lot, but I have almost 10x that, so it fills rather quickly, lol.

It's not that big a deal I suppose, but would really bug me knowing it doesn't work in a logical way. Coupled with a now negligible build quality from Creative (I'm still loyal to them, just disappointed), I can't help but feel they are getting left behind.

How's it compare to an iTouch if at all guys??

Looking to get something along these lines soon.

Cheers.

You'll find the sound quality is far superior to iPods, but the software is clunky and less accessible than itunes.
I suppose it depends which is worth more to you, the style or the quality.
