I recently lost my Samsung Z5 which was, as far as I am concerned, close to perfect. I got a Creative Zen instead which is supposed to be superior, but I really miss some features! The Insignia Pilot might be a candidate replacement for the Zen, but can it do these things:
- Full UMS integration (so I can create any folder and file structure I want using any program I want and then navigate using that structure on the player)?
- Plays loudly (the Creative Zen plays at half volume compared to the Samsung Z5)
- Tactile buttons (play/pause, previous/next track, volume up/down) for operation through my pocket.
- The "tap twice" feature (one to wake it and bring backlight on, two to change the setting) to reduce inadvertant tactile changes (instead of requiring hold switch all the time) or better. The Zen only turns the screen off if I use the hold switch which is really inconvenient. If I don't use the hold switch, the screen drains power.
These are crucial design points for me, but for some reason I haven't found them addressed anywhere.
