I ordered this to replace my existing Mosaic - which I have had for over 5 years. It froze up and I thought I needed a new one. However it started working again and I now have a spare to fill in if it happens again. Very good MP3 - I use it for listening to books on Audible.

Great Product Dec 21 2011
By C. M. Petee - Published on
I have owned a plain old Zen for a least three, maybe four years now and I love this product.
So much so that I bought the Mozaic for my husband two years ago. This is a man who can and will break
any thing that he has owned. He hasn't broken his Zen though!

The main reason I'm actually writing this review is because I saw some one comment on the Zen X-Fi 8g is not
compatable with OverDrive media console used by the libraries to download books. That may be so but don't
walk away from the other Zens to download your books. My Zen and the Mosaic work fine. It was the main reason
I got an MP3 player was to listen to books. Then bought hubby one because he listens more than I do.
We've downloaded a ton of books over the years. If you leave them on your computer they will expire but
if you transfer them to the Zen they don't.

One little cool feature that we hadn't used until recently
is a voice recorder.(Remember tape recorders?) You can only do 10 minutes at a time. I have a song I have to learn and I recorded
the music/piano so I can sing along. Hubby writes songs and when he gets an idea he just sings it into
his Zen until he has time to work on it.

When and if this Zen dies I will be buying one again.

Better than ipod for audiobooks, not as good as original Zen April 14 2012
By Jan B - Published on
I bought this refurbished 8GB Zen Mozaic when the battery life on my beloved Creative Zen became a real problem after six years of reliable use. I use the Zen almost exclusively for Overdrive audiobooks from my library and podcasts and the 8GB storage has not been an issue. The bookmarking feature is critical to me, and the Mozaic's ten bookmarks work great. The speaker isn't high quality, but it's perfectly adequate for those times when you don't want to use headphones. Managing audio files on the Zen using Windows is easy enough. The FM radio works well, but uses the headphone cords as an antenna, so no speaker for that.

The Mozaic is smaller than I expected and very light weight. The larger screen on the older model was easier to read. The control buttons on the Mozaic are small, so I find myself fumbling to hit the right control button. The earbuds that come with the Mozaic aren't comfortable, so plan to replace them at once.

Great for audiobooks Jan. 31 2012
By UA UNCW - Published on
This is an excellent player for audiobooks. It has ten bookmarking positions (these are marks that hold the place if there's something you want to go back and listen to again) which most audio players do not have. I bought a refurbished player and it has worked great for fourteen months, and I use the player almost every day when I'm commuting. I also love the speaker function. That way, if I'm listening to an audiobook, I can take off the headphones when I get home and continue listening. It's also great for times when headphones would not be convenient. Adjusting the volume and putting the player on hold are very easy. The only downside I can find to this player is that the radio reception is not good.
I Don't Like It May 11 2012

Two stars. Likely worth the modest cost but it is technology and software that is 3 or 4 years old. Maybe I haven't worked hard enough at it but I found managing the files and albums difficult on both the device and the software. For example, I would like to be able to select multiple albums at one time to transfer to the device. I would also like the ability to choose if or what folders the software auto-scans for various kinds of files. I didn't find a way to do either. I found it easiest to just copy things back and forth using Microsoft Explorer.

UPDATE: I was a bit hasty and have upgraded to 3 stars. After using it for a few days, I like the player just fine for audio files. Pictures are grainy which is to be expected. The Zen software is still a hassle, but after fooling around a good deal, I was able to get the things I wanted transferred from the computer. The key was discovering that for my "self created" audio files, I needed to use the tag editor to give them an album name. I couldn't just copy a folder over to the Zen and expect to find it.
Great item, but refurbished has poor battery life! May 7 2012

The Zen Mozaic 8GB MP3 player is a good product in design, but Creative should abandon the idea of refurbishing these units. I bought a Zen along with the Mozaic for Christmas presents for my daughter and myself, and found that the battery life is horrible! I had a Zen a few years ago that was great until it fell into water, battery life was decent - up to 18 hours at volume 18 out of 25. The refurbished units couldn't deliver even 12 hours at the same volume, after a couple months of use! Creative needs to supply a longer mini USB cable for their MP3 products, a 4 inch is not even as long as my ... index finger (heh heh). Well worth the price if you are okay with charging daily (if you use it at least 16 hrs). If you are a audiophile then get better headphones, included ones are CRAP!
