how about volume control
i heard some where [and i dont remember] that there arent dedicated volume buttons so you have to go through a menu or something to change the volume is it a problem?

Does anyone know if the UI in the Micro is the *exact* same as the one on the Touch? Is the touch pad sensetivity different?

The video on c|net said that. It's like the iPod which also doesn't have dedicated volume buttons. So if you're viewing the currently playing song, you can adjust volume using the touch pad. On the iPod, this is the only place where you can adjust the volume. But unlike the iPod, on the Micro you can also change the volume no matter what screen/menu you're at. Just hit the menu (aka option) button to bring up the volume setting and change it.

Another feature I found today. Not only can you enable/disable items from appearing on the main menu (like the iPod), you can also change the order of the items (unlike the iPod).

I want....Creative have any plans to use the UI for a 40Gig version?

Wow this certainly sounds like a great versatile player!

I'm sure iPod minis would still sell a whole lot more, but I'm very happy that its competitors are coming out with such nice products as well!

The bar is only going to be raised higher and higher.

If only it could be used with Mac stuff-- that's the ONE thing that kills it for me, considering I have a Powerbook.

Does it show up as a removeable hard drive, by chance? I checked Creative's website and no mention of Apple/Mac support at all...

just took delivery of my black zen micro. REALLY SWEET. Seemingly VERY high-quality. Will post more impressions after charging/software installation.

Creative dropped Mac support after the NJB1 and tends to only list Windows on their products even if they work with Macs (ex. MuVos). Afraid the Micro requires (a PC) load program from everything I've read, so you (and I) am out of luck.

After having some bad pizza this afternoon for lunch i decided to take a walk to J&R and make up for the pizza. I fiddled with a demo unit for a few minutes and decided to buy one. I already charged it a little and uploaded some tracks, sounds great to my ears, a lot like my nomad jukebox3. The touch pad gets some getting used to since it has a button in the center that allows you to select from the menu so i keep accidently hitting it when i'm trying to scroll down, its very tiny i'll tell ya that. Plus, it came with two rechargeable batteries! Very cool.

With my 7506's, it drives them very loud and clean, much like the njb3. However, i like the EQ on this sucker more, it allows you to mess with the following frequencies:

80Hz, 250Hz, 1kHz, 4kHz, 13kHz

So far so good, i'm sure i'll get used to the touch senstive pad eventually.

I forgot how small those things are, in my dad's Digital Living mag by C|Net, the first two pages are an ad for it. It does look impressive, and is small as crap...too bad I'm outta dough damnit!
