I am going to put the sake of Gizmodo's Apple fanboyism on the line by saying the Creative Zen Vision M is the most aesthetically pleasing MP3 players out there, except for the thickness. This player looks good, but unfortunately it feels like holding a brick. Creative has listened to my cries and thinned out the Zen Visions M and W. The new M measures in at .75-inches (down from .87-inches) and the new W measures in at .86-inches (down from 1.04-inches). So, they answered one of the complaints about the player from the users, how about another? Maybe a some better codec support?
