I'm not crazy about the way you press the buttons to get to the menu, browse songs, etc.

No frills, but good sound and easy to use.

I bought the first Stone and loved it. The folder skip switch was one of the coolest things about the ipod shuffle killer. But then Creative decided to try and one up themselves. So starting from my favorite feature I'll outline the changes.

That folder switch had to be dropped for the Plus. Instead Play and a Shortcut button (for switching to a favorite mode quickly) is put in it's place. Now the center button on the face of the player acts as a context sensitive select/menu button.

The added FM radio, Voice Recorder, and Stop Watch are pretty basic and get the job done. Nothing to write home about and as far as extras go, they may have their use here and there (a lot more useful than the iPod Shuffle).

The music player portion is where Creative got lazy and lose a star. Hot off the intuitive heels of the Stone, Creative manages to drop the ball an d produce one crappy interface. Getting through the main menus is easy enough on the player, clicking the center button once brings you to the menu where you go through the functions and holding it down brings you to the menu for the current function you are using.

That's not so bad. Just takes a little getting used to. What is bad however, is that you can't browse your folders. Huh? Yeah that's right. You just pick folders, not songs within folders. What hurts even more is that the only folders that are shown are the ones with audio files in them! So kiss your file tree goodbye. Creative just prunes it. Another oddity to note is that the MP3 player has it's own weird auto-hold function after the screen fades out. You'll have to tap a button to wake it up, then tap whatever you wanted to actually tap. This can be even more nerve wrecking than going through the music.

When searching for an MP3 player I was going to use primarily for books on tape the pause feature was important to me. I did not however find the product descriptions or very many reviews that answered my questions regarding this feature. I bought this Stone Plus and hopped it would do what I wanted. It does.

I can pause mid story and let it power down on its own then when I power back up later it starts up where it left off. I can pause and change to the radio feature and when I swich back it starts where it left off again. If I hit pause and change to a different saved song it does not come back and play where it left off and I have to search for the chapter I was in and start that chapter from the beginning.

I hope this helps anyone else researching these features.

The Creative Zen Stone Plus 2GB doubles the size of the iPod Shuffle and adds a monochrome screen for viewing track names and settings. Add in the functionality of a built-in FM tuner and voice recorder with other extras. At the average price of $60 you have a nice value.

Pros -
+ good stereo sound
+ nice capacity for a decent price
+ light-weight
+ FM tuner with 32 presets ( though it's just average )
+ voice recording
+ simple design (no more click wheel!) with more color options
+ great navigation and sorting features
+ Nice format compatibility (MP3, WAV, WMA, Audible)
+ USB 1.1 and 2.0 connectivity
+ Can be used as a USB drive / mass storage
+ Can sync music with drag & drop or via Creative software
+ Nice extras like stopwatch function

Cons
- average battery life of 10 hours (OLED screen sucks the battery)
- mediocre backlight ( but it can be disabled )
- some DRM song transfer issues with some firmware versions
- not expandable - few size options 1GB and 2GB
- Creative software is buggy
- larger than the 2nd and 3rd generation iPod shuffles

Creative's Zen Stone line was meant to be the upgrade to the Zen nano, aka Muvo mini. Unfortunately, the 1GB Zen Stone had some quality issues. With the new 2GB Zen Stone Plus, Creative has tried to improve on previous models and compete with the Sandisk Sansas.

I love the new Sandisk Sansa's. The Sansa Express has the advantage that you can plug it directly into your USB port without a cable. SanDisk Sansa Express 2 GB MP3 Player (Black) Still, the Creative Zen Stone feels nicer in the hand.

I have a 30 gb ipod, and have had several mp3 players before. This 2 gb device was purchased for my jogs. It performs wonderfully. There is a short learning curve to organizing songs into folders, but I love the sound and the tiny featherweight package is easy to carry about. The radio is not as good as the one on my old iaudio, but still it picks up the local stations well enough. If the radio were a bit stronger, it would get 5 stars. Highly recommended for joggers.

After using a bargain bin MP3 player for nearly a year, and upgrading earbuds to something that plays bass frequencies, I decided that I needed a player that can put out better sound.

Since I didn't need to watch movies or view pictures, but still liked the idea of seeing what song is playing, the creative zen stone PLUS with an OLED screen seemed perfect.

I used to own an iPod 2G Shuffle, but I didn't like how I could always hear a some distortion/nastiness on loud drum hits, etc and "hissing" through the headphones made by the player itself which ruined the quiet parts of some songs for me, I was disappointed with the sound.

After using the Zen Stone Plus a few months I think its a great player that does it's job decently.
PROS:

*Greatest sounding MP3 player I've used to date, I think my current earbuds are the only thing holding back better sound now

*Charges fast, if its charging really slow the USB slot you're using probably isn't putting out very much voltage for some reason

*No "hissing" or noises made by the player (fits in with sound quality)

*Decent volume for something so small

*Great OLED screen, very clear, perfect for viewing a song. On a side note the blue backlight makes a cool effect when you shake it.

*You can browse through menus and change options while your music plays

*No software required...functions as a 2gb flash drive

*Loads the next song very fast, no delay like on some players.

*Lots of features like microphone, FM radio (with stereo), timer, clock that the iPod shuffle doesn't have.
