Forums _ Technology _ ipod nano or creative zen microphoto?

Posted by: ecargnmyst Dec 4 2005, 11:38 AM do u like better? creative zen microphoto or the ipod nano that everyone has?

i personally like the creative zen microphoto ( used to have a zen micro and i loved it..lost it tho cry.gif ..but now..theres the microphoto....8gbs of songs or pictures.....really pretty colored screen..and theres even colored backgrounds for ur menus...which i dont think nano has..AND 10 different colored players AND it glows in dark with a blue glowing light..oo oo and the reason why i love it more....voice recorder ANd fm radio! ...and its palm sized-slightly smaller than the ipod mini...which would be bigger than the nano..but..thats minor when u think about all the extra functions it offer that the nano lacks
...annd it costs only $5 more than the nano

the nano (you all know what it looks like) - only 4gbs for my 6gbs collection..lacks a colored background(?)..only black or white...the only light source is the screen (doesnt glow) ..most importantly NO voice recorder =\ or radio

im asking this b/c i just made the big mistake of ordering a nano as an early bday present for me ..and THEN i find out creative came out w/ a zen microphoto =\

Uhm..for YOU, I think the Creative Zen would be obviously have a better liking to it..can you cancel the order? That's what I would do..

and I've never really been a fan of Ipods..any kind, but I swear I'm not being biased when I tell you to go for the Micro.

I've got an iriver 20gb h10. It has an fm tuner and recorder, voice recorder, and .txt archive. It also displays pictures. I use Sony MDR NC11 noise canceling headphones w/ it. It's a great setup!

I don't really like how the creative zen looks. I simply ADORE the petite shape of my iPod nano, but it doesn't have a lot of features.

If you're more into features than style, then go with the creative zen microphoto. It just depends on one's taste, that's all. :] Plus, isn't there twice as much space in the microphoto?

Zen. unles you want the Nano to snap in half in your pocket.

My mom was facing a similar problem (except, regular Zen Micro vs Nano) and I forced her to get the Zen Micro. Do I like it better than the Nano? Well, no, but neither did she. However, the nano is insanely overpriced, and I refuse to endorse commercialism to that extent. The Micro has much more storage, radio, recording, etc, and is more conventiant in these ways. The only complaint I've had thus far is that it's a complete pain in the ass converting the music I've put on my ipod into mp3s for her, but since you haven't had an ipod already, that shouldn't be an issue for you. I say go with the Microphoto. Honestly, it just makes more sense.

i saw a creative zen at best buy where u can test it out and stuff. i didn't like the feel of it, or the look either. nanos are pretty cool, but overpriced for how much memory it carries. i'd still go with the nano though

As much as I dislike iPods, and Zens I would still have to go with the Zen, why? You get more for less...
