This is neat, prefering the Clip + because the Clip Zip's screen doesn't compare to Apple. I liked my Clip + until I ran it through the washer. I like the Zip better for the alpha bet menu and showing the album cover. I don't expect a great screen for something that's less than 40 bucks. It does the job and isn't fancy, just goes about it's work. The Apple screen is great, for what it costs it'd better be. Too bad that's the only thing that Apple can get better for over a hundred bucks above the price of the Zip.
I will say that I wish someone would come out with a player with the Creative Zens form factor. I loved my 32 gig Zen, it was the perfect size and the button placement was perfect. At least come out with a larger Zip (bad screen and all) so I won't keep misplacing it so easy.
