I am selling a 60GB Zen Vision W for $520 ono. (postage at buyers own expense). It has only ever been used once and that was to have a look at what its got. Comes with Box, 2 x Identical Instillation CD's, 2 x Identical Wall chargers, 2 x Identical Getting Started Information Booklets, 2 x Identical Product Information Booklets, 2 x Identical Soft Carry Cases, Four different wall adapters for different countries including Australia, 1 x RCA lead to plug into TV's etc and 1 x USB Cable.

The contents of this package is more then that of what is included when you buy the Zen Vision W 60GB from the shops. In this case you have spares in case something wears out, breaks or in most cases is lost.

The condition of everything is absolutely immaculate not a scratch, dent smudge, crack or anything what so ever. The Zen Vision W still even has its screen protector on it.

The full information about the Zen Vision W 60GB is as follows:

The Zen Vision W quickly brings Creative up to speed in the blossoming world of portable video. And how could it not, with its splendid 4.3-inch wide-screen display, intuitive control set, removable battery, and CompactFlash slot. Priced 30GB ($479.95) or 60GB ($599.95).

The silver and black Zen Vision:W makes the Vision look and feel wimpy. At 134 by 75 by 22 mm and 276 grams, the 30GB version is much heftier than its predecessor (74.4 by 124.2 by 20.1 mm and 232 grams). The 60GB W is a very slightly thicker and heavier. It's substantial in the hand, but pocketable for sure.

Of course the payoff is the gorgeous 4.3-inch TFT screen, which boasts a resolution of 480x272 pixels with 262K colors. Photos and video pop off the screen, and unlike the Vision's 3.7-inch 4/3 screen, it has an exceptionally wide viewing angle (however, when viewed head on, the Vision's 640x480-pixel screen is impressive). The antireflective screen is vivid and sharp, and you can adjust its brightness and choose any background image you like. I was also impressed with the W's ability to output video and photos to an external display at a maximum of 720x480.

The W's blue backlit controllers, exactly the same as the Vision's, are quite intuitive, and the GUI is classic Creative, simple and to the point with conveniences such as the context-driven options and a customisable main menu. A five-way controller plus Back, context menu, and playback buttons lie to the left of the screen -- designed for right-handed use all the way. The buttons are tactile and actually offer resistance.

Below these buttons is a built-in mono speaker with huge oomph. The right spine includes the headphone jack and a rubber cover, which hides the DC input, as well as the A/V-out jack. You'll find a Type II CompactFlash (CF) slot on the right spine. This is handy for many digital camera users, particularly those with Microdrives. In addition to photos, you can import videos via the CF slot (and you get the option to transfer the latest 10, 20, or 50 of the latest files). Transfers are quick and photos look great onscreen. Though you can zoom, create slide shows, and rotate, I prefer the Archos 604 as a photo viewer, though you won't get a CF slot.

The Type II CompactFlash slot distinguishes the Vision:W from much of its competition.

A standard mini USB and a dock connection port reside on the bottom, while up top, you'll find the power/hold switch, pinhole microphone, and dedicated volume buttons.

On the back, you'll find the thin and easily removable lithium-ion battery pack -- a useful and rare design feature. The bundled accessories include a wall-wart power adapter, a USB cable, a software disc (with Creative Media Explorer, Yahoo Music Engine, and other utilities), A/V-out cables, and a felt case.

The removable battery is a great design feature, especially for travellers.

The W can handle MP3, WAV, and WMA (including subscription music) audio files. This time around, the Vision supports album art, albeit as tiny thumbnails. The W is decent as an MP3 player and holds it own in sound quality, and it includes handy features such as playlist creation and the Creative DJ (that is, Album of the Day and Rarely Heard). However, you should justify the unit's size and weight by using it for video.

The Zen Vision:W supports a large number of video formats, including WMV, MPEG-4 SP, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DivX 4/5, and XviD. In most cases, Windows Media Player will do the converting for you, if necessary, though the bundled Creative Media Explorer will do the job (as well as help you create slide shows).

The handy bookmarking feature allows you to mark an exact point in a song for up to 10 bookmarks. Videos get bookmarked automatically when you exit the video. You'll also get a decent FM radio with up to 32 auto scannable and nameable presets. Reception is good. The Microphone feature is great sounding (16kHz mono ADPCMWAV). I like that you get a visual volume level meter. Finally, the Vision:W continues the Zen support for read-only Outlook syncing, and the MTP device can be used as a hard drive on Windows and Mac machines, though you need to first partition the drive within the menu.

Battery life is rated for 13 hours for audio (mediocre) and 4.5 for video (good). CNET Labs was able to muster nearly 17 hours of MP3 audio on a single charge; video fared well, too, with a solid 7.6 hours of playback per charge (Fantastic). You can recharge via USB, but it will take twice as long (6 hours vs. 3 hours) to fully recharge. Our sister site in Asia posts battery results in its review.

Overall processor performance is above average (start-up is quick).

Sound quality is very good, EQs are effective (as is Bass Boost).

Overall, I think the Zen Vision:W is well suited for those who already have large collections of videos (and those who use TiVo To Go) and for those who take lots of photos. It's a beast, and with impressive display, good video format support, a sweet price, and nice sound quality make the W a solid playback-only choice.
