Seems like the best choice... Forget the Zune HD
Wow Creative really nice. DIVX/XVID,WMV9 and MP4-SP upto 640*480 and FLAC. Also i loved the 75g weight.
Now the bad things :-
No H.264 why?? I think the CPU is powerful enough.
Low battery life. Creative says 25Hrs means around 20-21Hrs
Fix to H.264 problem would be to put Android in this thing but batery life may go down even more
My orignal plan ws to get Zune HD as a High end player and Zen XFi 2 or Achros 3 as a everyday use player, but Achros 3 is not that good and XFi 2 seems better than the Zune HD in video support but not battery.
To break it down
52.7 x 102.1 x 8.9 mm
WMA,AAC & MP3
WMV,MP4 PART2 & H.264 "Generally upto 720*480"
57 x 102 x 11.6mm
WMV9,MPEG4-SP,DivX,XviD "Generally upto 640*480"
So it seems that Zune HD has a bigger screen its lighter "tad"with smaller "tad" and its battery is a very good performer indeed added to that WiFi, but it lacks very badly on codes. No FLAC & no Xvid really make Zune HD a no sense upgrade from S9. The ZEN XFi2 is pretty much great in code support, i dont want to buy a S9 again that only leaves the XFi2 as a possible choice or maybe Zune HD will support Xvid in a upcoming firmware but most likely not.
Tactile,simple,cheap,good and expendable= ZEN.
Touch,complex,excellent and a full package= S9.
Potential replacements Zen XFi2 & Samsung M1
