Well, after reading about 150 other customer reviews, I decided to take a chance on the Zen XTra 60GB. For those of you who are hesitating, don't. Here are my observations.
Creative's software- it is ridiculously easy to use. Less than 10 minutes after installing the software (on my Win XP system, with absolutely no problems. However, READ THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTION BOOKLET BEFORE YOU START) I downloaded 3 cds to my Zen.I did not have to read the online manual (there are no printed instructions, but relax, you won't need any.) The process is very intuitive, and all you do is click your mouse 4 times (3 if you don't need to download song information) and away you go.So far, it hasn't locked up or frozen or done any other mean, nasty things.I have read other reviews that complain that the software is difficult; all I can say is that they must have an earlier version (I got mine in March). I bought a Rio MP3 player for my son in Jan. and the software for it is a nightmare. I don't know anything personally about the iPod, so I can't comment on their product. I will say that you should take anything an Apple user (any Apple product user) says with a grain of salt. They all hate any computer-related product that isn't made by Apple- my brother is an Apple disciple so I CAN comment on this. I have heard his Apple propaganda for years.
The scroll wheel- yes, if you hold it down, it can zoom past the entry you're looking for. It took 5 seconds to figure out- don't hold it down for long periods. I haven't had any problem getting it to select when you press it in- I'm not sure why other people say they have.
The case- the metal cover is thin, but mine has not popped off at all. Several of the complainers stated that the cover pops off when or after they've dropped it.

60GB storage. I have almost 900 CDs. No other product currently available will hold this capacity without seriously compromising sound quality.
Size/weight. This unit is only very slightly larger and heavier than the iPod, and you get 50% more storage capacity (for $100 less!) When I look at my huge shelf of CDs, which is about 7 feet high and 3 feet wide, I literally can't believe all this music fits on this little unit, about the size of a deck of cards! But it does! (With plenty of room to spare for future additions to my CD collection.)
Great sound quality. I am saving my tracks in WMA format, as side-by-side comparison between MP3 and WMA at various bitrates consistently rendered better results (although slightly larger file sizes) with WMA format. Even with the cheap little earbuds Creative includes with this player, all genres of music sound crisp and rich.
Bright LCD, menu easy to navigate. Everything is right where you'd put it if you were designing this product yourself.
Easy to also plug this into my home stereo system or car stereo, so I can have my entire CD collection literally anywhere I go.
Price. I got this direct from Creative Labs for $399. (And Amazon currently has it for $350!) A 40GB iPod costs $499. By extrapolation, if they ever come out with a 60GB iPod, it will cost $650-750. What a deal from Creative!
Summary: I have literally been waiting for years for a product like this, and now I am SO glad I waited instead of settling for a lesser 20- or 40-GB product. If you have a ridiculously huge CD collection like I do, I cannot recommend this product highly enough. This is the best electronics purchase I have made since I got a Sony CyberShot digital camera.

First of all, I want to address all of the complaints about the software. Yes, the media source software is not that great, however if you look a little more closely in your "My Computer" window, you will notice a new Icon called "Nomad Explorer."
Nomad Explorer is the drag-and-drop feature that everyone seems to be looking for. This is fully integrated with Windows Explorer, and it is already included! This is the only way that I have been transferring music. It is very easy to transfer files, and also makes it easy to fine tune your ID3 tags by right clicking on whole groups of files to easily adjust genre, artist name, or album name.
For the price and the storage capacity, the Zen Xtra is an amazing product. I have a large collection of live shows that I wanted to be able to keep at a high quality bit rate and take where ever I go. 60 GB lets me do that.
The only complaints that I have so far are that you need the disc to install the device on another computer. I'd like to be able to plug it in to any computer and have it ready to transfer files, especially as a data storage drive. I also replaced the earphones. I would like it to support lossless files such as flac and shn. I am hoping this can be added with a firmware upgrade in the future (you can easily upgrade via their website).
I would absolutely recommend the Zen Xtra to anyone interested in a great jukebox with a huge hard drive, great sound, and low price.

I spent about 8 or so hours online researching all the mp3 players available. I was looking for a 20 or 40 GB player, but ended up getting the 60GB because it was only about $30 more than the 40GB.

Every mp3 player has its pros and cons, I can live with the 'cons' of this player, no problem. I chose the Zen Xtra because:

1-It has the most bang for its buck..

2-It comes with a battery that you can replace, Ipod doesn't and neither do some of the others.

3-It comes with volume normalization, others don't. I have obtained mp3's from all over the place, and some are way louder than the others, this will set them all at the same volume.

4-You can buy a car DC adapter, some others don't.

5-The sound is very crisp...I did buy some $30 headphones, and the sound is fantastic. But even with the earbuds that come with it, the sound is still very good and crisp.

I don't know why people complain about the software, I'm no computer person and I figured it out in no time. It's a bit bigger than the Ipod (and they say you can't run with it), but it's not crazy big at all and I don't run with music anyway. My carrying case (included) has a window for the screen and I've had absolutely no problems with the player. The battery life is about 8-10 hours, depends on how much fiddling you do with it.

Other than that, all I can say is that I'm very happy with this product, no question. I picked it up for $279 at I think. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
