Ugly? It's the same basic design with a widescreen upgrade and accelerometer. Sounds good to me. Although I'd probably go with this (http://us.creative.c...p;product=17811) instead. FM radio, built-in mic, expandable memory (sd and sdhc), more audio and video codec compatibility, better battery life, speaker, larger screen...all for the same price.
Expandable memory, it works, somewhat. You can only play the songs from the mem card alone, you can't mix into what's in your player's internal memory...and playing the songs in the mem card is a mode by itself.
This is what I read from a review site....which basically puts me off my decision for Zen X-Fi.
