    Excellent Overall Device

    Posted

    I've had this device since May 2007. I use it almost every day. I use it to block out co-worker noice when I need to focus or when traveling, especially through airports, which is quite often. I have lots and lots of music downloaded and still have most of my memory left (23 GB). 30 GB is plenty for me at this point. I add new stuff all the time and don't have to worry about running out of space. The software and the device itself is easy to use. I can maintain my "collection" on my computer and add or remove or re-add things onto my device if I ever wanted to do that. I listen to many genre of music and can easily separate according to genre or put together personalized playlists. This was great for Christmas. Ripping and downloading are super easy and I have found some really hard to find stuff on the ZUNE marketplace. The earbuds my device came with are super comfortable and the sound is terrific. The screen is a great size for watching video and it is also good quality. The FM tuner is really good too. I can catch things in my office that I couldn't catch with my stereo/radio. And, I can walk around and bring my music or news with me if I want to. I couldn't do that with my other radio. I like all the accessories I have so far. I was gifted with an Altec Lansing portable speaker for ZUNE for Christmas and it was terrific being able to have my Christmas playlist playing in the background at our family gathering. It sounds really good too. Overall, my personal experience with the ZUNE has been 5 stars.

    disappointed

    everyone i talked to said they loved their zune, however, i had my zune for approximatly 2 weeks before it broke! for 2 hundred dollars i expect to have a bit more useage than 2 weeks. Now i did get a warrenty and have not yet tried to get a new unit. We'll see if this process is as easy as it should be. I am wary to even get another of the same because it sounds like i can only get one replacement even with the warrenty so i hope its just a fluke. I have heard that units with a hard drive do break easier so i may get an 8 gig instead. ON THE GOOD SIDE... the screen was a nice size and very large and i really really liked the program interface much better than the i-tunes that i had with my ipod which i might add, i had for a year and beat the heck out of it (even ran over with my car) and it still worked, until it went through the laundry .... lol

    Not only is my Zune beautiful but it has the coolest features! It was so easy to download the software and transfer my music files to it. I let it charge for about an hour and a half and it was ready to be used. You can also put it on different music settings, apply your own backgrounds, and listen to the radio! The price was lower than the price for other mp3 players too. I put in my headphones while I'm at work, school, and the gym. It holds a better charge than what I expected. I'm addicted to listening to my music and even bought a little pink & black case to go with it. I recommended this product to many of my friends. They hadn't even heard of the Zune. My co workers have one and we swap songs all the time. It's a really cool mp3 player and I am happy with my purchase!!!

    A real best buy!

    The 30GB music player from zune is an excellent product. The music plays better than an ipod and the zune has an equalizer. Moreover, the microsoft zune comes preloaded with songs to rock out to. The only problem with the zune is its size. Microsoft should really work on making the zune smaller. Besides the size, everything else on the microsoft zune is excellent. There is ease controlling lists, there is a stereo fm tuner, the screen gives an excellent display, there is the possibility to share music wirelessly, and the zune works with most computer software. The microsoft zune would not be a remorseful purchase, rather it would be a best buy!

    Great Catch

    My brother and I both had iPods that ended up having internal hardware failures so I knew that something was not right. I decided to get a new MP3 player and since I like Microsoft to being with, I knew that it would be a good buy. It has yet to fail me after a few months with it. Even though its kind of "bulky," its extremely light weight and you know what, the screen is huge so its good that its big! I take it to the gym all the time and trust me, it makes time fly by as I watch a good movie on my Zune while on the Elliptical machine for 60 minutes. Its a great catch, great price, simple to use and most importantly---RELIABLE!!!

    Nice product

    I've owned 2 different iPods, a Sansa, and now, a Zune and can say good and bad things about each of them. The Zune is a great device; it's user friendly, has an FM tuner (which the ipod line has been lacking), and looks and sounds great. My only reservations with it is that it's a bit bulky and since the mp3 market is dominated by ipods, it's hard to find accessories. (As for my old iPods, I stopped using them because I didn't like the process of adding songs, there was no FM tuner, and every time something ran across the touch volume surface I risked going deaf because of the sudden volume increase. The Sansa was a pretty basic, no frills model and and is still great for the gym.)

    In my humble opinion the Zune is one of the best MP3 players out there. It's so easy to use and has a load of great features. Microsoft is also really good about listening to their customers and improving the software with regular updates. Being able to share songs, ictures and videos with friends and family who have a Zune is great. I love that I can just point and find someone nearby who has a Zune and share files with them if I wanted. It's a great social outlet. I just wish there were more accessories out there for the Zune. The only reason I rated this a 4 is due to the lniteid amount of accessories available.

    My wife kept asking me for something to listen to at work like her coworkers. We went to Best Buy and she began looking at the little things while I feigned indifference. I couldn't help but notice this Zune played music and videos for only a few cents more than those little guys that ONLY played music. The screen is bigger and it has reasonably priced accessories. Even the volume and picture were loud and clear. I eventually talked HER into buying it-- she loves it. She went back and got her dock and I'm thinking of giving her the travel kit for Christmas. What a great buy!!

    Microsoft Zune MP3 Player with 30GB

    I bought this for my wife as a birthday present. I really wanted something for her to carry around to show pics of our children. The size is just right as the screen has very good picture quality and video's are great as well. The music is very clear and crisp not like other MP3 players that sound like your in your bathroom. Software is very easy to use but like I said the only thing we have an issue with is some of her songs will not load because they were purchased on another download music site. I recommend the Zune as a great quality buy for music, pictures and video's.

    Don't Buy This

    I have never written a review but this is a terrible product. I basically could not get it to work. After charging it I saw the content already loaded and it looks, and sounds great. Unfortunately, i could not get it to connect to my pc, it would not recognize the connection and the software was so frustrating I gave up. I want a player I can connect, load my files, and enjoy, this product does not fit any of those requirements. I read other bad reviews and thought they were isolated incidents, but nope. Save yourself the frustration, buy something else.

    Best MP3 so far.....

    Jovani1

    This is the best device I have ever made in my life. I love it because it combines the abilities of an Ipod, Ipod Video, FM Tuner all in one. I love the size of the 30 GB because of the amount of music and videos you can add. So far I have 601 Songs, 79 Pictures, and 37 videos (3 of them are over 1 hr. long). I've used up only 4.56 GB and still have about 23.19 left to go. And I'm still adding to it. Thats not including the fact that its a Halo 3 Editon which has pictures and more videos.

    Originally purchased pink zune for my daughter's christmas gift only to be disappointed by the quality of the zune. 1st zune-would continuously freeze taken back to store, 2nd zune when installing already had pictures loaded in the hard drive (many of them not appropriate for child viewing) took back to store, 3rd Zune issue was checked by the geek squad for contents product would freeze, 4th zune- contained pictures of graffiti billboards from Brooklyn, N.Y. dated from 2006.

    Better than the ipod?

    JUnit0524

    I think this mp3 player is terrific. My favorite feature is being able to wirelessly share music with other people that also have the zune. It also has a built in radio tuner, something none of the ipods have and i love that. The screen size is perfect in my opinion and it looks great. Much cheaper than a lot of the mp3 players out there, and if your not looking for an ipod this is the next best thing down, if not better already.

    Worst Purcahse item

    Cookie0910

    it is a horrible thing to purchase. it gets ruin quickly and the ipod is a better value. the buttons can somehow destroy the item's screen like a pice a cake. compare to this item the ipod wins 10 to one for me and all my friends which have this item because it has had the same causes of destruction. the button to put the volume up and to chose the material to hear going up and down cracks the screen very quickly.

    Great, but too bulky.

    I like the Zune very much. It has ample storage space. I like the size of the screen, the colors are very vibrant. I like the ease of of organizing files and playlists. The selection of Zune colors is great. Additionally, I like being able to use Microsoft points for both my Xbox Live and Zune Marketplace accounts. The only downside is this size of the Zune, I find it to be too big and bulky.

    I love this product, my boyfriend got it for me for christmas, and i think its great! It was alot bigger then what i expected but i love it. The only thing i notice bad about this is, there isnt much directions to this, so you have to figure it all out, which is easy. But the battery life was much better after i realized when i had it in my purse i could lock it so it would stay turned off.

    Bought this for my wife for her birthday, two weeks ago. She loves the pink color, it works great and she never has to worry about me taking it. Lots of space for storing music and videos. FM receiver works great too. The stock headphones that it came with aren't very good, we will be buying some different ones soon. Best Buy is also great with their price match guarantee.

I had a creative twice and hadno luck with uploading things to it. But with this zune everything is pretty much a click away... BUY IT...ITS WORTH IT

    This is the best mp3 player ever! This is my first and im sooo happy with my choice. I use to have a iRiver but it didnt hold too many songs. The Zune holds so many songs it will probaly take two years to fill it up.lol. Buy the Zune, you wont be disappointed.
