Thumb Up Zen 8GB Impressions

After 1 week of ownership. PS: Are the buttons supposed to be backlit?

- excellent display
- excellent audio quality
- fast file transfers
- build quality is solid (much better than my Zen V Plus)
- responsive UI
- song ratings sync both ways

- awful screen flickering when powered on
- player has already locked up during music playback
- buttons aren't backlit, which makes it a pain to use in the dark
- ports are on same side as controls; difficult to use the power/hold switch with usb / headphones plugged in
- no rds data for radio stations
- ridiculous 4 inch included usb cable
- creative's poor software suite (use WMP or MediaMonkey)

you might want to report that screen flickering. it seems that all Zen owners are experiencing this as its a bug.
one thing that bugs me is the shut off time (from the videos) its horrendous. almost as long as the Vision:m and the vision:m is a hdd player.
