    Things better looking have been excreted from my arse...

    does this look like a good buyer to get one from? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...712727854&rd=1

    he has no neg feedback so yeah he seems like a good one =) still think that even the Zen looks better tho... [i'll stop talking about the iPod] You can get a ZenXtra [40gig] for about £160 on ebay if you look hard enough =)

    Sorry to bring back old thread.. but I relised I now have several times more money than I currently need.. So im going to get one of these

    I was thinking is it worth getting a UK one for quite a bit more as it has 4x longer warrenty (1year, instead of 90 days...)..

    Also ebay is evil.. just checking theres no better places to get one before its too late...

    Yeah that's why I bought my Zen... Cos it has huge storage and sounds excellent.

    And it may be bigger and slightly heavier than the Ipod but it's not overly big IMHO

    I'm sure you know my opinion on the Zen by now Silent Death

    It's a great product. But I agree about Creative.. They should have stuck to soundcards. That's what they were good at. Their Nomad MP3 players are excellent

    Good at soundcards? lol - they dont even know how to use the pci bus properly without giving users irq problems, yeah, great soundcards
    Nah they just have a big marketing budget.. there cards arnt as good as the box would make you think...

    From what ive read, the rio karma has EVERY feature you could ever want from a player... but I know nothing of the zen... know of any good reviews of it?

    Their soundcards used to be the leading... And I've never had any problems...

    Use Google to find a review. There's loads.

    They (Creative) pretty much own the consumer sound card market.. If it weren't for the onboard sound chipsets anyway.

    I guess what is putting me off Creative is that they had to buy off one of their most interesting ("Creative") competitors. Sure maybe it makes sense from a business point of view, but I can't help be think that had Aureal survived, we would've got more more advanced sound card due to competition (a la Intel vs AMD, Ati vs Nvidia).

    That said, their speakers (Mega/Gigaworks series - less so for the Inspire) are very well regarded.
