I am really enjoying my Zune and have made it part of my daily commute to and from work. It functions pretty much as I expected. The only issue I had was that the software would not recognize my Zune on the first computer I tried, an older Dell running XP. Could easily have been the Dell as it has been buggy ever since my kids started using it. Thankfully we have a new Dell running Vista and eveything went very smoothly. Sometimes the syncing process is time consuming, especially when dealing with large video files, but otherwise no complaints. I love the 120gb capacity - never even think about what's on there and what I might need to remove. Have all my pics, all my music and dozens of TV shows I have no time to watch at home. All around I am very satisfied and glad I didn't shell out $400 for an iPod like the rest of the world.

Zune Rocks

by AH on 12/20/2008

This is my second Zune. My first 30G is still in great shape. I decided to dedicate it solely to my home receiver. No more, cd changers, etc. All my music, podcasts, etc. are on it (them). The new one is for my personal use. It looks a little smaller and sleeker. I love that the new software is available for my 30G, too. My daughter had been campaning for an ipod video. When she saw my new Zune, she was sold. Not to mention, how much more you get for your money with Zune. Space, screen size, fm radio, games, wireless connectivity, upgradability for all generations, quality of build. I guess you can go with the itouch, but, have you looked at the price for what you get? I'm really annoyed by all the ipod/mac brain washing that is going on out there. Zune rocks! Read More
