The good: Gorgeously slim; easy to use; comes with iTunes.

The good: Decent audio; fuss-free video conversion; fast transfer speed.
The bad: Tiny screen; below-average battery life.
The bottom line: It's a decent enough video player, given its size, but for serious mobile movie buffs, the Creative MuVo Vidz is just not worth the popcorn.

The good: Decent choice of Stik-On designs; low price for a 5GB player; small form factor.
