Awwwww it used to be the 8GB. Maybe it was an error and they corrected.

Default Zen in UK -any deals on 16gb or 32gb ones?

Hi

My small archos 402 died, so am looking for a replacment. The Zen fits the bill. The 16gb will be ok, as will then get a 16gb SD card, or if I can get a deal on the 32gb one, that would be great.

Anyway- any special deals on at the moment ref these ones in the UK?

Thanks

Scott

How about these 2 here and here for the 32GB version.
Here is one for the 16GB Zen.

Hope this helps. Good luck and welcome to ABI!

Edit: Thread merged with main Pricing thread.

Cheers.

Spent the morning looking and in the end got Creative to price match for 99 and free delivery for the 16mb one.

Cannot wait - just need to get a 8gig sd card for video's.

Yeah the 4GB has been hovering around $75-80 for a while now. A good deal, yes.

Default Zen price drop

So in light of the Zen X-Fi, I wonder what the chances are that creative will slash the price of the 32gb Zen close to the current price of the 16gb version???? I'd buy one

Lets face it if

32gb Zen X-Fi = $279 and 32gb Zen = $299

16gb Zen X-Fi = $199 and 16gb Zen = $199

8gb Zen X-Fi = $149 and 8gb Zen = $129

then they have got to reduce the price of the Zen.

but of course I am in the UK so by the time they reduce the price there probably won't be any Zens left to reduce in price.......................always the short end on the stick!!! but then the people over here never see anything more than iplods anyway.....ahhhh the power of advertising...


I would love to be able to walk into my local electronics store (and music store) and pick up a Cowon iaudio 7 (for a good price)...but no what do I see first???????

Yep iplods!!! ok I have to admit I was thinking about getting an 80gb classic (after seeing a 30gb Zen Vision W for half price but then missing out), yes they have great capacity, yes they have great battery life, but that interface with that touch sensitive 'wheel' thing....no way... my old senile sansa e200 is better

This is by no means official information, as I am not in the know here; however, I am predicting the Zen will be discontinued, with the Zen X-Fi being its direct replacement.

That is quite possible. It would explain why there hasn't been any firmware releases lately. I was sort of expecting one with the release of the X-Fi..... maybe the last for a while.

I noticed on the Creative US site that the 8gb and 16gb Zens are out of stock. Maybe they'll just let the 32gb Zens run out too, and keep only the 2gb and 4gb Zens, and the 8 - 16 - 32gb X-Fi ...

Default 32gb Zen PRice Drop?

Does anyone have an idea if the Ze 32gb is likely to have a price drop in the run up to xmas.

It's presently at 149 on amazon.co.uk and I am not sure whether to upgrade from my old Creative Touch now... or wait... or is there maybe a 64gb around the corner?

I doubt a 64GB Zen anytime soon. More likely, if anything happens, maybe a price drop or sale before Christmas.

hehe, got a 32 gb zen from minidisc for $316 Aus + shipping, Was a great deal for me, considering Australia's horrible exchange rate.

That would be approximately 205 US dollars.
