    I like iPod better IMO, the first I had. I have iPod Photo (30GB) and iPod 5th Gen (30GB Video). It's simple to use, with the circular wheel. The Creative Zen Vision has about 5 or so buttons, IMO is more complicated. The iPod has 5 too, but is built-in to one thing.

    Although I still think the ipod is good imo it has the most aesthetically pleasing design.

    Creative is awesome, my soundblasters were cheap, get the job done, and sound great. I'm anti-ipod, have no money for a Zen, so I'll just stick with my MP3 playing CD player :laugh:. I wonder what Creative will do with all that money...make better drivers?
