I am looking to buy one of these for myself as a Xmas treat. I was going for an iPOD - £399 for the 40Gb version at the local John Lewis but they have a Creative Zen which is £50 cheaper with a stonking 60Gb of storage! Surely there has to be a catch? Has anybody got any views on which is the best - the iPOD has the trendy name etc but is it really any better than the Creative version?
I have 2 Creatives, one the Zen and the other the Zen NX. The latter has 30g and its brilliant all round. The software is very easy to use and usb2 very efficient. Reproduction is excellent. You'll find much cheaper elsewhere than J. Lewis. The 60 g Zen Extra is just over £300, not £350 as you said. Shop around and you'll find cheaper.
