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!

Long time owner of the Creative Zen M 30Gb. I really want to like this Zune, and gave it every benefit of the doubt. Beside its big screen and 80Gb. Not much else impresses me. 1. Its sound is mediocre; I am being kind here. Have you ever listened to the sound from a Zen? 2. Can't remove a song from Play List unless you attach it to a PC 3. It doesn't remember the music track you listened to after turning if off. It's a huge inconvenience when listening to books, and have to manually find the chapter again. No bookmark capability. Who were the geniuses that designed this thing? Going back to the Zen.

Buy.com has proven to me it's the fastest shipper of the online merchants, and I got the best price on this new Zune to boot. Love the Zune by the way.
