MP3 players

Creative Zen Mosaic (8GB)

Its video presentation might not be up to much, but this Creative excels with audio and it's affordable too!

MP4 players

Creative Zen X-Fi W/less LAN (32GB)

Majors on portability and competitively priced, but not so hot when it comes to pure performance

Dock systems

Creative Playdock i500

A good-quality speaker dock, make no mistake, but it's such a cut-throat market nowadays that even that can't match the best of the competition

MP3 players

Creative Zen Vision W (30GB)

Smooth, slick, easy to use and reasonably cheap

MP3 players

Creative Zen Vision:M (30GB)

An imitation of a better model that doesn't quite satisfy
