I'm having problems deciding between the two, also. On one hand, the Zen V Plus has good software (used it before), good interface, and the joystick actually works. On the other hand, the Sansa is cheaper, feels more natural, and has a little more substance. Unfortunately, there are questions I have about the software and scroll-wheel.
Help is needed...
I just cracked my iPOD screen by dropping it while running, so i guess i am getting a new player. I want a small player (1-4gb flash) so that i can get an armband and also fm tuner. My question is which of these two should i buy. Any other suggestions appreciated. Also, is the video player on Creative Zen V plus any good? Thanks for your time and have a good day.
