  1. Saw this on the Creative website. Is it true? Looks like they may be the first with a 32GB flash player in store this season.

    I think this is going to be a great holiday! :)

    um, if you bought 2 of the ones you linked to you would have 32GB,

    Still can't beat my Creative Zen Vision W 60gb, the problem is with flash memory will it have enough of a bandwith to support movie playing at high res? Thats why the W has a hard drive.

    Bandwidth in terms of capacity or read speed?

    Capacity was an issue but with 32GB flash it is not a problem. The only difficulty I have is that this new 32GB ZEN costs 349 bucks now. You gotta pay to get "world's first" I guess.

    As for read speed flash memory is sold with various read speeds, same as RAM sticks for PC. I guess this is technically possible to have a decent read speed from flash memory anyway.

    I cant really imagine you needing a video thats too high res because its screen is rather small, and they're not going to release a product that cant do what it's been made to, every creative product i've owned has been great.

    I don't know why people bother with the I-Pod, it's nowhere near as good as the Zen Vision M, but i think its mainly a fashion thing, much like with Motorola.

    Motorola = **** over priced phones
    I-pod = **** over priced media players.

    Res = 320 x 240 pixels
    and it is 2.5" LCD screen

    So the resolution is as on the ipod but the color depth is higher -
    24 bit color not 16 bit color screen

    (==>same with your ZEN W, this is why its display is so good: 24 bit color depth translates into 16.7 million individual colors on display).

    Would not beat ZEN W for movie watching comfort tho, thats right, but its a completely different league in terms of size and weight:

    ZEN: 55mm x 83mm x 11.3mm, 65g
    ZEN W: 134mm x 75mm x 22mm, 276g

    I do have to admit that the W is fairly large and is by no means light or thin. The W is widescreen and i think the new on is regualer. But it will be nice to see creative finally release a light pmp. I just hope they keep up on the firmwire, my W hasn't had a release in new firmware in over a year and its creatives flagship! or at least it was. I agree though that other brands (creative esp.) are alot better than IPOD's they have more features and you get more for your money and don't have to use all the stupid software horse apples throws at you.

    why would you want a 2gb version of that player? Its it the same as the 32gb? (you know screen and size wise)
