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 After I broke my...

Before I say anything, there is a very two sided argument about ipod's versus Zune. Many, if not all reviews on the web are biased towards one side, and I will *try* to keep my review as open to both arguments as possible. Now, first things first, the price. I had to ship mine over from America...

The Microsoft Zune. Zune. What a name! I bought one of these recently because I wanted to find out what all the fuss was about. I can tell you, I was immediately gripped. After handing over (yes, again) my card getting home and putting the kettle on I was enthralled. The Zune appears to have been...

I would like to start things off by saying that this review is completely unbiased and is written by a Microsoft and Macintosh fanatic. The zune is a new era of digital media players that is now considered the basics of digital entertainment and music streaming. The Microsoft is a very...

The microsoft 30g zune wins us over! We have 5 of them! Let's see now, 2 for the grandkids, 1 for me, 1 for my husband, and one for the guest room! The user friendly and ease of downloading music and videos is incredible! And now, with the ability to download your fav shows, what more could you ask for! Zune wins over Ipod hands down! We highly recommend this product vs the ipod. The price is great too!

When i first purchased my zune, which was around 100 pound less than i would have had to pay for an ipod, i was a bit shocked by the size of it. After having this music player for over 2 years, i still feel it has been my favourite purchase ever. The sheer robustness of this player amazes me! i...

At one point, the screen cracked so I went online to learn how to take it apart and replaced the screen with a new one I ordered off the internet. I also replaced the clickwheel circuitry, this went out due to my...
