Creative Zen vs. Zen Micro

Monsternet got all up close and personal with Creative's new Zen 20GB player and weren't too hot on it. They like that it kept the interface from the Zen Micro, and gave it good marks for audio quality, battery life, transfer speeds and voice recording. However, the design ended up killing it, as the essentially stretched Micro looks "out of proportion and bloated." It also loses points for bad FM reception, monochrome screen, and the removable drive feature, which awkwardly requires partitioning before being connected to a PC. In the end, they recommend getting better value for your money elsewhere.
