Not sure why they bothered pitting it against some no-name PVP that we'll probably never hear from again, but reviews the new 30GB Creative Zen Vision alongside the 20GB Consus PMC-300. You probably already know how much we've been lusting after the Zen Vision (it can handle playback of playback of MPEG2, MPEG4, DivX, XviD, WMV, and MJPEG video files, and has a 3.7-inch, 640 x 480 pixel, 262,144 color LCD screen, a 30GB hard drive, a CompactFlash card slot, a built-in FM tuner, support for TiVoToGo, and compatibility with PlaysForSure and all of the "To Go" online music subscription services), but MonsterNet has a few not nice things to say about it, like that during testing the Zen Vision's battery life fell an hour short of its claimed 4.5 hours of video playback and that it has a "very, very limited viewing angle." Even so, they still give the Zen Vision nine out of ten stars, giving it big points for the UI.
