5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Great sound quality
Ability to use Zune pass (unlimited downloads as long as you have the pass plus a huge selection of music)
Light enough that it doesn't bother me when I run, either in a pocket or on the arm band.
Seems pretty resistant to water/sweat.

Cons: You have to use zune software (it was never bad, least not to me, and has gotten better of the last 2 years)
Battery starts to die after a few years.

Other Thoughts: I bought an HD after about 2 years of owning this smaller one because I thought the battery was going bad, but after a few months of using it just for running, battery seems to of set itself to work for 4-6 hours. When it was brand new, it worked for the entire trip from Atlanta, GA to Seoul, Korea minus a 4-5 hours when I watched movies on the plane. If you keep wifi off, it saves your battery time alot. I bought mine from "a store" in 2009 and my HD at the BX in 2011.

5 out of 5 eggswell done Microsoft

Pros: Good product, good price. I bought a 8gb zune because I saw a colleague buy one from here as well and she let me play with it for a day. Looks exactly like new, definitely very hard tell it was 'refurbished' or whatnot without the sticker, so just take off the sticker. Also the case it comes with is nice, car accessories are even more of a bonus.
+software: I like the zune software much better than itunes
+hardware: this zune looks and feels far better than current gen ipod nano imo, I prefered 1g and 2g nano styles which were more reasonably shaped
+price: relatively low price, I was surprised
+quality: refurbished? looks like new to me, I don't know what they mean by reconditioned. someone must have just opened the box and never touched the player, and then returned it? because my player was physically flawless out of the box.

Cons: -no drag and drop? seems like you need to use zune software from microsoft site. fortunately the software is pretty good, but this could be annoying if you have all your stuff on itunes or something
-NO UNICODE SUPPORT IN HARDWARE??? most annoying thing- the zune software on the computer supports asian languages, but on the player all foreign characters show up as blank boxes. Hopefully microsoft will update the firmware someday once they expand into the asian markets, but for now I can live with it. (at least it has a screen, which my old shuffle did not..)

Other Thoughts: + fast newegg shipping

good purchase. <3 newegg

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent alt to ipod for pc users

Pros: Have purchased new previous and this reburb came just like new - no issues. As far as the Zune platform goes, I like the interface and touch pad much better than the ipod circular pad. Sound quality is excellent and wirless is convenient for sync without requiring a tethered cable to the PC. Works great with Ford Sync. Screen is nice quality for music or quick video.

Cons: No equilizer function to fine tune sound and must use zune software to copy/sync music.

Other Thoughts: I have had the 30gb unit for 1yr plus and my two sons also have the 8gb zunes, which they love.

2 out of 5 eggsBeware any suggestion of bundled items

Pros: Still a great price for an 8gb Zune

Cons: Don't expect anything besides the basics; Zune, earphones, USB cable

Other Thoughts: Purchase of this item will not include any bundled car kit or free leather case. According to Newegg "we cannot guarantee recertified item will include any accessories, CD drivers, cables, or any other parts in addition to the main item itself."

2 out of 5 eggszune pad flaky

Pros: Have 2 other zunes that we love, picked this one up for a gift.

Looked brand new

Cons: This refurb'd zune had a problem with the navigation pad. The sensitivity in the down direction was horrible - had to MASH the button hard to go down. Note this is for button push navigation (which I prefer), not the "touch/glide" scroll.

RMA'd - will see how the replacement is.

Other Thoughts: Decent price - Hope the replacement works, or return shipping fees will have put me in the ballpark of "new" pricing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Looks just like the one that i bought new last year. You wouldnt even know that it it was a refurb if it didnt say it. Very solid and workable with the newest firmware version. I really like the new Zune 4.0 software, it never freezes or messes. Its way better than iTunes. You can even buy, download, and stream songs onto the Zune player without a computer present!

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: WOW, what a great value! I thought the this Zune was already well priced BUT I also got a FREE case and car pack. I'm very impressed with the case and car pack.
Newegg ROCKS!!!!

3 out of 5 eggsWorked... for a week....

Pros: Small, compact, lightweight, durable, few buttons, low price of a refurbished item.

Cons: The mandatory software interface. You can't just plug it in to a USB port and goto My Computer and drag and drop. You MUST use the Zune software that you have to download from Microsoft's Website. Worked Flawlessly for 1 week, now when I try to hook it to any PC (tried 8) the computer says "Unrecognized USB Device" :(

Other Thoughts: This is the first SLOW experience I have had with Newegg. They said my Replacement would be shipped within 2-5 business days, it's now been 9 business days. *sigh*

5 out of 5 eggsHard Drive Size

Pros: Great device without all the limits of the iPod.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: PEOPLE PLEASE! stop saying you have HIGH TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE if you really don't. You NEVER get the full hard drive space on ANY hard drive device, including flash memory devices. Why? Look it for your own edification.
