the Goodwill® of small things

Creative Zen Nano Plus

A tiny MP3 player, found at the Goodwill, for 99¢. Somebody didn't know what they were looking at.

in case, with quarter

It is tiny, and it came with a little rubber case, headphones, the instructions, and the cd with the software.

case with clip, also, a quarter

The case has a little clip on the back, and the case itself is soft rubber, so the player just slips right in.

blue display

The display has a blue backlight.

volume & interface controls

The power/play/pause button is on the front, and on the side are volume and interface controls.

USB and line in, also, a quarter

There is a record feature, which can record from the tiny built-in mic on the front, the tiny built-in FM radio inside, OR one of the coolest features in my opinion, is the line-in that will let you rip source input directly to MP3, without a computer.

In case, with quarter

I certainly wasn't looking for a tiny MP3 player, but this one is pretty cool, especially for 99¢ from the Goodwill. Plus it is like many tiny devices rolled into one. Digital recorder, FM radio, MP3 player, USB key. It's even easier to carry around than an iPod, though I carry one of those with me most everywhere too. I recommend it, even at full price, if you're looking for an MP3 player, or any of the above mentioned tiny tools.
