think u can check cnet.com on their reviews on creative Zen products. so far, wat i've read is dat they get top marks for screen clarity, but low marks for user-friendly interface/software.

epson's PMP is designed for viewing photos. overseas reviewers pointed out dat it takes a bit of IT skills to record and play videos and music from it tho...

personally, i am waiting for the vosonic 8690 (upgrade from 8630). saw the empty box at EG liao. i asked, and supposedly it will be out some time in nov. wait till dec for the last PC fair of the year, and see if there are any good deals? :)

is it out?

how much ?

why better than creative?

and

[thanks to the two whom replied]
:)
epson screen win all other brands currently available hands down... if viewing picture is your objective... i have a P2000, the screen is running at 640x480 as compared to others at 320x240.

but den again, it only do MP4 playback and not really good for MP3... maybe a P3000 out later of this month would be good... have DIVX.

Cowon A2 is another good choice if you dont mind Korean brands.
Check the review in CNET. It gets better score than creative.
It has a USB host feature so you can input the cameras data right into it.

Archos has a bunch of those if you want bigger capacities.
Their generation 4 devices, the Archos 504 can go up to 130GB!
Has good screens, the highest score in CNET of all PMPs because of the excellent screen color and user interface.
The only bad thing is the "optional" addons you have to get, like the travel adapter, docking station, etc. Again no CF slot, but you can input data thru the USB (requires adapter).
Try also their AV700 it has a 7 inch screen and does not require any adapter to perform the USB Host feature.

VAIO U can also be the mobile photog's best friend.
It has touch screen, and runs windows XP so not only can you store and view photos on the go, you can do all your photoshop and raw conversions on the move. Size is slightly bigger than those PMPs and of course price is about 4X. Has CF slot, and USB slot, of course memory stick too.

Not too happy with my Zen Vision. Wait till you try reviewing photos (JPGs only, it can't read RAW files) on it -- it hangs royally each time!

In my opinion, if you can afford it...get the Epson P-5000. If you are on budget, get the Vosonic :)

You will not go wrong with the Epson. The screen of the P-2000, P-4000 and P-4500 are simply stunning, and the P-5000 is supposed to be better and larger! Will be available early Nov. Pre-order now at www.ShaShinKi.com

what features you want in Epson P-5000?

It can play dvi, movie, MP3, download photos from CF/SD, connect to TV...etc. IMO, it is a very good entertainment device... :)

Of course if you want a product that can do extra thingy like radio, internet...then Epson P-5000 is not for you... ;p

Epson P-3000 and P-5000 are same specs except the HDD size. One is 40GB and one is 80GB.

Canon M30 and M80 not yet out...so no comment. Not so confident with first generation product...
