    awesome MP3 player

    The Zune and it's software couldn't be easier to operate and enjoy. Right out of the box, you plug it in and download your music. The Zune will display the album art and genre of your music as the song ques up to play. Surfing through the song titles is a breeze, and the Zune breaks down your music into several different catagories like albums, artists, songs, genre...making it easy to find a particular song or group. As for downloading movies and pictures, the Zune also excels. With some additional connections, the Zune can be used to play these movies or video downloads on your home tv. Bring it with you on a trip and your favorite movies can be played anywhere. It is easy to watch the picture on the Zunes screen and isn't hard on the eyes. I brought the Zune to a doctors appointment, and noticed many eyes trying to catch a peek of what was on! Battery life is also very good on the Zune. For playing music, you get about 14 hours. For playing video, about 4 hours. USB connection will repower your Zune. Zune is all in all a great product and very fun to use. You can create your own playlists, keep your photos and movies/tv shows and even share your songs with other Zune owners. Definitely worth a try!

    Got my zune the begining of 07 and have loved it! I had an iPod hated the fact you couldn't put a picture in the background. and the graphic sucked! It works well with pc only takes a few to look for all your music on your computer. I love looking around for people that have zunes around me in a public place (cafe, bus, ect) and sometimes I make a friend by sending them music. And I like seeing the art work while listening to an album other then a little icon. Plus you get some pretty good jams that are already on your zune when you buy and also videos. One thing that sucks I didn't fully charge it when I first got it so now the battier life only last for a two day time. It also seems to be faster then an iPod when looking through your music. Can't wait for a Pink 80G :)

    better than some MP3 players, but not the best

    The Zune has a built in FM radio, a 3-inch screen that rotates to landscape for videos, and has easier navigating through menus thanks to the absence of a click-wheel. However, the best part of the Zune, in my opinion, is the Zune Pass feature on the marketplace. It allows you to download as many songs as you want for a monthly fee, and keep them as long as you still have the Pass. The only problem I have is that the wireless sharing feature, which allows you to tranfer songs and photos from Zune to Zune, is useless because the Zune hasn't gained the popularity that other MP3 players have. Overall though, this is the best MP3 player I have owned (and I've tried plenty), and I would recommend it.

    For the most part, I really like the Zune. The screen size is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest that you can get on an MP3 Player. It organizes all your files really well and is easy to use. The Zune also allows you to customize your background on your main screen. My biggest issue with the Zune is that you can not purchase movies from the Zune website and as far as I know there is no other way to get movies onto your Zune. Overall it is a great product, I just wish that there was a way to put movies on it, and I am sure Microsoft will get there eventually, and you will be able to buy and download movies to your Zune from their wesite.

    The Zune is simply the best MP3 player out there right now. I first purchased a SanDisk Sansa but was pretty unhappy with it so I decided to spring for the Zune, and I sure am glad I did! It is very user-friendly, nice big screen (much bigger than the iPod equivalent!) and good radio reception. I do have a few dislikes but they are fairly minor: I would like to be able to record what's playing on the radio (like the Sansa does), the album art that appears on most songs is often a little grainy, and the battery life isn't quite what I was hoping for (but it's not bad).

    Very Easy to use!

    Extremely easy to use! Just connect to your computer and your music downloads. With extra software it has been really easy to download music videos. I have not been able to figure out how to download movies yet, but if you are pretty good with computers you should probably have no problem. You are able to share songs and pictures, but you are only able to listen to it 3 times within 3 days. It is a little bulky, not to great for working out, but other than that I love my zune, it has a big screen, is to navigate, and easy to add music.

    Best MP3 player on the market

    I purchased my Zune back in May. I had been wanting one after my neice and nephew got them for Christmas. The screen is big enough to actually enjoy a movie. I take it everywhere I go...I grab my cell phone and I grab my Zune. An added bonus...for an extra 15 bucks a month, you can download any and all the songs you want from Zune. The only drawback (which is small) is that it is annoying sometimes trying to put the Zune into its case...especially when you are in a hurry. Other than that, another nice job Microsoft.

    Great choice in MP4 players

    I recieved my Zune in April of 2007 . My daughter already owned a Zune of her own and highly recommended it over the previous MP3 player she had owned. I found the Zune extremely easy to navigate and the large screen a big bonus. It comes loaded with a few videos and music and adding more music is a snap! The one downside I am still struggling with is loading new videos/movies on to the player. We have tried researching the Zune site and the web looking for products or software to enable video to be loaded.

    I brought the Zune to replace a MP3 player (30GB Non Zune) that crashed without warranty. I think that the wireless media share feature is a plus. I also think that the amount of accessories that are available for the Zune makes it a very worthy rival to other MP3 players! I think that the Zune is a user friendly MP3 player. I haven't had any problems with the Zune. I am very pleased with the Zune. As a matter of fact; I'm listening to it (the Zune) as I write this review (so far so good)!

    I WAS EAGER TO JOIN THE IPOD BAND WAGON UNTIL I READ REVIEWS FROM USERS ACROSS THE BOARD FROM IPOD TO ZUNE AND DECIDED TO GET THE ZUNE SIMPLY BECAUSE SIDE BY SIDE COMPARISON, THE ZUNE STOMPS ALL OVER THE IPOD. ALL MY FRIENDS HAVE HAD TWO OR MORE IPODS BECAUSE THEY TEND TO GO BAD FOR SOME REASON. THE SOFTWARE IS EASY TO USE FROM THE START ON THE ZUNE. ALTHOUGH THE ZUNE IS BIGGER, IT IS VERY LIGHTWEIGHT. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

    I purchased a Zune for Christmas and everything was working fine until August when the device did not recognize the USB cable or automotive charge cable when either were plugged in. I called Zune support and they sent me a pre-addressd box to return it in. They were unable to repair it but sent me a new one within 3 weeks. I didn't even have my original receipt but they were very helpful.

    compared to the 30GB i pod. it is a little thicker but it has a bigger screen which is great for watching videos. it is also easier to navigat thru the menus, songs, and videos. the song wireless song sharing is cool too. the song marketplace is somewhat limited and i wouldnt complain if they added movies to the purchaseable items. overall i give it a 9 out of 10.

    I am happy i bought my zune it has a big bright screen and a built in radio and you can transfer music between other zune's. The only bad thing is if your looking to get this to get videos right off the bat you should just go with a ipod because who nows how long it will take microsoft to get videos on the marketplace. but overall its a good item to buy

    I've owned both an iPod video as well as my current 30GB Zune. Most important difference is the fact that the iPod scratches faster than a dog with fleas. On the other hand, the Zune case (white like the one I own), is VERY rugged and durable. Screen quality is top notch, and the Market Place is a more logical choice than iTunes.

    I believe that since the new software came out with an updated version of zune, that there are a lot of issues that are not dealt with. I can't get my software or computer to to recognize the device and I have a lot more songs that I want to download. I've tried the zune sight and still have yet to come up with answers.

    GREAT MP3 AND MORE. CAN'T BEAT THE FEATURES FOR THE MONEY. SO EASY TO USE AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT IS GREAT. THE ONLY BEWARE IS THE OTHER THAT OFFICIAL ZUNE WEBSITES. IF YOU HAVE VISTA ON YOUR COMPUTER READ THE FINE PRINT BEFORE JOINING. CAN DOWNLOAD THROUGH ANY SITE LIMEWIRE ETC. WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND OVER IPOD!!

    I love that my Zune is cheaper than an iPod, has more features (FM tuner, larger screen), and has all the accessories I could want. The only complaint I would have is that it does not natively support Media Center recorded television -- but through a conversion process it and load them in and play them just fine.

    i just purchased the Zune two days ago and i have to admit i am very impressed. Loading music is very easy and the sound is great. I love the large screen and the ability to set your own background. I have friends with Ipods and after seeing my Zune they wished they would have bought one of these instead.

    This is the best thing i have got. I got my Zune about 6 months ago and I love it. It has great media playback and it has some cool features. Some of those features include the FM Player and the file sharing. This product is great and is better than the Ipod and it is cheaper. GREAT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
