Fellow earthlings, I am in the middle of an inner debate about which mp3 player to choose. I post this because I need some advice so I can make the right decision, naturally. ADD: Just to clarify; I am currently in the US and want to buy something this here because it is much cheaper than back home. In General Ipod video are coming in the 30 gb and the 80 gb variant. Black or White color. The competitor is the Creative Zen Vision:M, 30 or 60 gb. Also in Black or White color. Apparently you don't get any wall mount for loading of the Zen but I heard that the PSP adapter works well if I ever need one of those. I think you get that with the ipod.. No biggie in my opinion though. ADD: Also, the Zen has radio and mic for recording which the Ipod lacks. Interface and navigation They have a fairly similar interface (though the ipod got an awesome search function, the zen a shortcut button everyone seems to love). In short, a tie. Screen I compared the screens next to each other in a store and found them to be equal in both size and quality. A tie. Compatibility The Ipod supports fewer movie formats than the zen and is by standard bound to iTunes (though this can easily be fixed). I am not sure if the Zen interacts well with computers. Needs to be further investigated but the support for more file formats sounds great. Physical Size The zen is slightly larger than the Ipod. I heard there was going to be a release of a slimmer version though. Haven't seen it in stores or online yet. (It's the 60 gb version thats thicker than the ipod). This difference in size does not bother me though. Warranty Well, this is pretty much the big thing that might seal the thing. Apple got this great worldwide deal lasting a year which means the only difference for me as a customer is that this device is cheaper in the states. Creative also has a "world wide" deal, though if I buy the device in the states I only get 3 months of warranty! AND, their supports is said to be sucky-sucky. Any of you guys ever dealt with Creative?? Are they good?? Price The Creative Zen Vision:M, 60gb: $239.99 The Ipod Video, 80 gb: $329.99 I think I am more interested in the 30 gb variants though which are a lot cheaper. The Zen is generally the cheaper device. So.. what do you think?? I would really like to go with the zen, but the warranty thing scares me off.
