Talking New 30gb blue ZVM's at Creative online sale!!!

I was just on the Creative web site. They are having a 2 day sale and one of the items is a new blue 30gb ZVM. I'm tempted myself but have to reason that I already have a fully functioning black one.

Well, considering it is from Creative directly and not some place like EBay (around $100 cheaper), yeah. Plus, I don't believe it says if it is new or refurbished (I would be surprised if it isn't a refurb). ZVM's are still in high demand and since they are discontinued, they can sell at a premium price...... but I do see your point. For $250, I would expect the 60GB model.

Well it's for sale, but not for sale at a sales price. I believe this is a good find by Popcorn.

Foe F's sake. The UK always loses out when it comes to things like this. I was looking ate that page and saw that the dock was $10, that's only 5!

So i went on the UK site and the same product is 25.

What A RIP

Well, as I seem to be in the middle of a problem with my "new-to-me" ZVM 30 gb in the post saying Recovery Mode Disk cleanup hung up at 99%, the impulsive side of me logged into Creative's web site and snapped up one of the coveted NEW ZVM BLUE. Bought a dock connector as it was only 9.99. Wouldn't have paid 49.99 which seemed to be the ususal price. Anyway, there you have it. Hubby will kill me. Just what I needed....another MP3 to add to the collection. Oh, but I am so excited to get it. I'm gonna sleep well tonight!

Nice snag Popcorn. I'm sure you will think of some good justification to tell your husband. Congrats.

I can't believe how fast Creative shipping is. I did pay for the faster shipping and was supposed to take 4 days. I ordered minutes before midnight Wednesday night and had it delivered by UPS to my door Friday 2pm. Wow! Unfortunately between shipping and duty I paid about $68. on top of the $249. (sale?) price. Oh well, glad to have it, they are getting hard to find!

Wow, that was fast. If I recall, shipping was faster than expected when I ordered my 32GB Zen from them as well. Enjoy the new ZVM!
