The click wheel is really nice but the hiearchal menu structure is patented by Creative.

Yeah, and with Creative, its the same process.

Go to Music Library, select a song using the up/down scrollers (alot more sense), and then press down to select...

The Vision M is the same exact dimensions as the iPod Video, it's just thicker. I like that though because it feels a lot more sturdier.


I like the iPods a lot I think they are great but I am looking for something new.

At least Creative doesn't use polished mirror aluminum on the back as a shell. It looks stylish, but it's a fingerprint and scratch magnet.

Go with ipods if you're trying to follow the trend. Get the Zen if you want more features.

Well I just got an iPod Video, and so far its great! A bit slow tho when making selections...and iTunes is pissing me off a bit by being a fricken turtle, but other than that, when its not connected to a PC, its awesome.

I'm sorry you are 100% wrong. Zen has a mic and a FM transmitter. The iPod. Plus the Zen plays way more video formats including XviD. Not to mention the ability to play DRM-WAV so you can put Napster songs on it.

I agree, its alot better than an Ipod...
Plus you can record FM radio of course as well.

Those are all accessories you have to buy with the Ipod.
