Ease of Use

Ibought this to replace my zen player which i love but windows , vista does not sapport it and there r no updates for its software after win i bought the zune 80 gig .it works well i"ve had for onley a couple weeks so i am not totally used to it but a lot of the fetures r really cool .i have had no trouble whith it so far and it was easey to use right out of the box.the red color is differt than what i would normally buy . but we bought a new car and all the dash lights r it kinda blends in . so far a good product for the dough quote

I really like the Zune 80. I did own the original Zune 30 and I can say that this unit is a huge improvement hardwarewise. As you know it is possible to get the new Zune 2.0 interface found on the newer Zunes on your Zune 30, so that is not an issue. The software the Zune uses to sync with your pc is quite good as well, much improved and installed without issues. The device is very pleasant to use. The Zune pad is a neat and functional alternative way to navigating a device like this. The Zune 80 came preloaded with music and video from many different groups and a large set of pictures, all optimized for the screen's resolution. My only grip is that the Zune does not have AVI, Divx, or Xvid support. However, with a modern processor and some free software, converting does not take that long and the end result is a video that is optimized for the player and is smaller in size. Overall a great device with excellent build quality, battery life and user interface. Very impressed!
