Creative is launching the new Zen. So what's the catch in buying this model from the earlier model, the Zen Micro? What's the real deal here? Does anybody have an idea? Not to mention the launching of the new Zen Neeon that lowered its SNR to 90db from 96-98db of other models....to which Creative has been known for its high SNR.

I think they are both pretty much the same, except for the Zen having bigger HDD's

as for the Neeon, I would assume it's just a replacment for the HD Muvo's

I've been planning to get a new mp3 player to replace my old Sony MZ-N1 MD player...and I've noticed that Creative has good quality mp3 players because of their high SNR. Though I'm open to any suggestions on what might be best for my set up. I do have Xin's SM3 and a pair of UM2s. For now I was hoping to get only the mid size players like the Zen Micro/new Zen, ipod mini, etc.

Another thing you should look at is whether the zens batteries are removeable like the zen micros. it didn't specify the removeable battery for the zen last time i checked. Thats one of the main reasons that i got the zen micro over any other player before.

How about the new Zen? At Creative's it doesn't state whether the batteries are removable or not??

Zen Neeon will launch in Singapore tomorrow. Batteries not removable. Basically MP3 players will not exceed 96dB SNR. If it exceeds, meaning they measure the SNR base on insane power loading with high THD. Get a Zen Micro.

the new Zen (with no names after it like neeon, touch, etc) is basically just like the Zen micro but bigger and with bigger HDD options, I read on dapreview I think that the batterey was user replacable. it better be because the 11 hour battery life would suck
