I actually bought a creative M a few weeks ago, but let me tell you, I don't know how I feel about it yet. It has some scratches on the screen and buttons area, normal wear and tear if you were to keep the player in your pocket for a few weeks.
With that said, it still feels like the adopted child, that I can't love like my Creative W
maybe because I wasn't the one to put the scratches on the player. Overall, it sounds like it plays the music and videos alright, but a there's a little clicking sound from the hard drive (don't know if that is normal or not)
