Creative Zen Vision W Reviewed, Gets Editor's Choice

, no doubt thanks to all their contacts in the Asian manufacturing community. So why did this player get the editor’s choice? Because the 4.3-inch screen is so large and pretty, it makes the player unable to be held by just one hand.

Other good stuff: the GUI, a CompactFlash slot to dump your photos into, WMV/MPEG1/MPEG2/MPEG4/MJPEG/DivX/XviD support, radio and voice recording, TV out, a virtual keyboard, Outlook syncing, 5 hours of video playback and 18 hours of audio playback.

Better yet, even the called “bad stuff” is really negligible. CNET says it’s thicker than the original, has no TV recording and only has a mono speaker. All stuff that appeals to a small segment of the user base. Available late September in 30 and 60GB models.
