Creative Zen Micro 5Gb MP3 Player

The Zen micro is the little brother of the Zen 20gb. For those of you that wouldn't know what to do with 20gb of music or would never even dream of owning that much music then maybe the Zen Micro is a better choice for you. 5Gb of storage capacity is still enough to hold 1250 songs approx at 128Kbps and even more if you are storing at lower bit rates. I have heard it be said that only 5Gb is not enough but 1250 songs at standard bitrates seems fine to me.

The Zen Micro comes in a style to suit you. You can choose from 10 different coloured fronts, your choices are White, black, light and dark blue, pink, red, green, purple, orange and silver. So I'm sure there is a colour there to suit you. Each one comes with a bright blue back light for extra style and of course so you can see what you are pressing in the dark.

The battery life of the creative Zen Micro is 12 hours as standard and is rechargeable. You can buy extra batteries for when recharging is not a possibility. Switching the batteries is easy and you will have another 12 hours of listening time. 1 battery included extra batteries sold separately.

The Creative Zen Micro also comes with an FM radio and 32 presets so even if you do manage to get bored of the 1000+ songs stored on the disk you can always tune in your favourite station for more hits.

A nice little extra of the Zen Micro is the DJ feature. The DJ will not only shuffle your entire library but it will allow you to select songs from a specific album or even only select songs that you listen to often (your favourites) or songs that you may not have heard for a while, allowing you not to miss songs buried in the depths of your playlist.
