Zen Xtra - Views?

  Pumas 22:38 28 Nov 2004

I am looking to buy a HD MP3 player for up to £300.

I was looking at the 60GB Creative Zen Xtra but have heard rumours that it was unreliable.

Is it? Is there a better player of around this capacity?

I've got the 20 GB one no problems at all and I wouldn't be without it,and I've had it since it first came out, on the whole it has very good reviews, out of 35 reviews at Amazon there are only 2 negative ones, by the way you can get it for £249 there.

I'd reccomend it.

I have (I think) a 40gb one (is that right? holds 10 000 MP3 or 16 000 WMA)

No problems with it. Brilliant bit of kit.

I have heard thought that IRiver make the best, so it may be worth looking at them, see if they do a 60gb one.

for size alone take a look at Sony NWHD1 details of which can be found at Amazon

Have two creative zen mp3s. No probs at all and I thought support was good as well. Sound quality superb with proper headphones.The fact that the battery is removable must be a plus too.

Thanks for the responses. Based on this I think I will go for the Zen.
