Creative Zen hands on picture

Written by test

Slimmer than it looks

We got a chance to have a handon play with the new Creative Zen media player and it's one sleek and sexy number and way thinner than the pictures gives away.

The new Zen features a 2.5in LCD display and it's really bright and nice in use, although the shiny plastic front of the player, which by the way is an insane finger print magnet, prevented us from taking a good picture of the screen.

The controls aren't as great as some other players, but they're easy enough to use and functional in every way. The UI is pretty good and easy to use and the sound quality is very good.

We saw some re-encoded DVD's playing and the picture quality was very good. Although it seems like the 16GB model isn't quite ready yet, but the 4 and 8GB versions are already on sale in Singapore.

The addition of an SD card slot is great, altough it doesn't seem to have a protective cover which is shame. The slot is located at the top of the player with the USB and headphone ports on the right hand side.
