Creative players aren't cheap by any means. Actually, while iPod is "what's hot", Creative MP3 players have a higher quality sound and a larger set of features. As you can see in my signature, I've been owner of some Creative MP3 players and I can say they're very good.

About the speakers, I guess the output quality will depend on the quality of the player and the tunes. If you have a good set of speakers, a good MP3 player (Creative ) and if your music is properly encoded, the sound quality will be very good. Take a look at this link.

There are some cases available for this player by Noreve and other manufacturers, but I think this player is better enjoyed "naked". Besides, according to the reviews, its surface is scratch resistant enough to normal wear and tear.

About the battery issue, would you mind giving more details on that? Are you charging the player through USB? Have you installed the provided software to your computer?

Congrats on your purchase of a Creative Zen player! I agree that they are head and shoulders above the iPod in every measure that matters!

The periodic freezing issue seems to be a common problem with new-release Creative players. Updating the firmware should fix this. You can find the latest firmware here. Simply download it to your desktop, plug in your player, and execute the firmware file. It'll do the rest.
