Zen of the iPod Mini

Microsized 1 1 61
Creative, makers of ZEN audio player, have been in the sound business forever. making the unforgettable "Sound Blaster" audio cards in the days of DOOM and Castle Wolfenstein 3D. well, times have changed and they are making MP3 players as well. in fact their players are as good as, if not better than the iPods. let's take a look:

Zen Micro: 6GB, 249.99 USD, comes in 10 colors, it's tiny, 12 hours of playback, uses vertical touch pad, usable as storage disk, Shuffles, syncs to Microsoft OUTLOOK only, removable batteries, FM radio, supports WMA, MP3 and WAV. gray scale screen.

Apple iPod Mini: 6GB, 249.00 USD, comes in 4 colors, it's tiny, 18 hours of playback, uses scroll wheel, usable as storage disk, Shuffles, syncs to OUTLOOK and Mac OSX, non removable batteries, No radio, supports AAC, iTunes AAC, MP3, MP3 VBR, Audible formats (books), Apple Lossless, WAV, AIFF, gray scale screen.

Winner: Apple iPod Mini.

Bottomline? if you have a Mac, you can't go wrong with the new iPod mini. it's perfectly priced and sized, plays every audio format, including the all important AAC. but if you want a colorful, glowing music player, then the Zen Micro will be a good choice, with the radio player and buttons that light up. both players look good, but the iPod menu and scroll wheel reigns superior, and with a tighter audio format the sound is also better.
