Advantages Cheap, durable, high quality sound, large screen
Disadvantages A bit big, some people may not like the nav buttons
This is a very good choice for a very good value, top end video / MP3 player. Can I also say, once you update the Zune with the official microsoft update, the software of the Zune is updated so it is exatley the same as the new one, along with the PC software.My decision
How it looks
The looks of the Zune may not be its strong point, however I like its simple design. There are some interesting colours, I've got a brown sort of colour which goes green at the edges in light. It has almost a rubbery feel to it, its does not have a glossy / shiny surface like the ipod. This is a good point as it is difficult to scratch, and easier to keep clean - so it still looks like it is in mint condition.
The Zune has Wi-Fi, so you can connect with your laptop or PC wirelessly if you use a wireless network in your house, or if you have a wireless enabled computer. Also if you meet other people with Zunes it is possible to try some of their music tracks - you get to keep the track for 3 plays I think which is a good feature. Some people complain that it isn't enough, but they've got to protect copyright of the music (which I dont care for really!). The Zune has a radio built in which is useful if you like listening to radio. Also your podcasts are stored in a special podcast section, with audio and video podcasts spererated into two sub-categories. The battery life is very good, I have been very pleased with it, even now (02 m June 2009) my Zune will play music for will over 12 hours, including some video watching. A USB charger / data cable us supplied, but I think you an buy mains chargers as well.
