4 out of 5 eggsGreat Player

Pros: Brilliant Screen
Easy navigation
WiFi
Zune Marketplace

Cons: Movies can be a pain to convert and load. The bonus digital copies that come bundled with your Blurays work on Ipods and your laptop, but won't load onto a Zune.

Webbrowser doesn't play YouTube videos.

Other Thoughts: Awesome player, the screen is brilliant. I love watching Podcasts, listening to audiobooks, music, apps, etc. Does everything very well. I love the Zine Marketplace and how everything I have ever watched or purchased on my Xbox 360 can be added to the Zune player, AWESOME. Love this player. My only gripe is that Apple Ipod dominates the world and everyone caters to them and them only. Digital copies of movies won't easily load onto the Zune unless they're bought from Zune. That's not Zune's fault, it's just that they have deals with Ipod for exclusivity. Just stinks!! Now if you have a movie that you got from a torrent, you can load those just fine. It's like you're rewarding people for pirating movies and penalizing people who buy the movies legally in a store? Doesn't make sense.

3 out of 5 eggsZune HD

Pros: The UI is pretty nice. The battery charges fast and lasts very long. Other than the cons, I love this thing.

Cons: The screen bugs out every once in a while. If I put the screen lock on, sometimes the Zune will lock up and I can't take the screen lock off. Sometimes my songs will change randomly WITH screen lock on. It's really random.

Other Thoughts: As I understand it, Microsoft dropped the Zune hardware. So does that mean there's no more support for it?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat piece of hardware

Pros: Great hardware, but even more than that, the Zune software is simply the best I have ever used. After years of dealing with that bloated mess of code called itunes, I can safely recommend the Zune to anyone and know they will be happy.

Cons: none.

4 out of 5 eggsLiked my iPod better

Pros: Despite how this review sounds, I am not an Apple fanboy. However there isn't much about the Zune that gives it an edge over the iPod Touch. Videos and games look fantastic on the HD's screen. Zune Pass is a good idea when it works.

Cons: Apps are very limited. Browser is incredibly slow. Seems to take longer when downloading podcasts compared to my old iPod touch. Zune software isn't any better than iTunes. And now Microsoft has announced that they are discontinuing the Zune.

Other Thoughts: I picked this up mainly for the Zune Pass (unlimited access to the music catalog and 10 free downloads a month for $15). Right away I had issues with DRM. Finally got it resolved, only to have the same problem the following month when I paid my dues. This is a ridiculous problem that shouldn't be an issue at this point.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Very well built player. I've never had any real issues with it. The touch screen is very accurate. I'm not an audiophile of any sort, so I can't comment on sound quality. The software, however, is amazing. Using the Zune Marketplace, it matches artists with a biography and pictures, and recommends similar music - all offline, from within the player. The Zune Media Player is all around generally not bad, although I don't see why Microsoft wouldn't merge WMP and Zune (does it really make sense to have two products with the same intended use, more or less?)

Cons: The wifi doesn't work with the network setup here, as the unencrypted network requires a browser authentication, but the Zune disconnects from the network the moment it sees that it's a local-only network...
The included headphones are also starting to fall apart, but I imagine that anyone who really cares about that would have a second pair.
The app market is extraordinarily terrible. Microsoft writes good apps, but I don't think they've opened it up to other developers... Don't buy a Zune if you want to load up on apps. On the other hand, if you just want a great mp3 player...

Other Thoughts: I love the Zune UI!

2 out of 5 eggsNice-however unfortunate

Pros: NICE - I love the look and the feel. It has HD radio which I am a huge fan of. Menu seems straight forward and interface with Zune Software seems easy enough. Size is nice and picture is great.

Cons: Unfortunate - The sound quality is not as good as I hoped. It seems society has abandon high quality sound for convenience. This player compared to my creative lab ZEN is it just poor. Compared to my Ipod Classic it is not as good. With that being said the sound on this ZUNE HD only lasted 5 weeks. We are in the process of getting the shipping doc to send in the ZUNE HD to get repaired or replaced. I don’t see that has been a wide spread issue so maybe I am the unlucky one?

Other Thoughts: Although the Jill, Customer Service Rep for Microsoft ZUNE was very nice and did all she could for us the process in getting to her was VERY WEAK at best. Support online was terrible. They web pages where full of link issues and not good for much unless you wanted to purchase music or movies. Microsoft is not a HARDWARE savvy support source. They have had lots of practice supporting software though? Maybe they should stick with software until they get it perfected.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Amazing picture, HD video, HD radio, great looking games and apps, music sounds amazing, headphones are better than most you get with a MP3 player. Podcast are sorted nicely and video podcast look great.

Cons: The keypad is different, some may not like it. Has had a slight increase of apps and game, would be nice if it had more to use the Nvidia chipset.

Other Thoughts: I was an owner of the original brick Zune. This is nice, the touch technology is nice. I subscribe to the Zune Pass and love it. Defiantly thinking about getting one that holds more, I fill it too fast.

5 out of 5 eggswonderful player

Pros: Great screen, looks beautiful & its touch. Has good sound with any headphones (my opinion) I recomend the Zune pass O-O

Cons: need to have more update for the zune itself, not just the software itself. would get more customers if it had a web browser that has a flash player, that isnt out dated

Other Thoughts: I love Zune because not many people i know have a Zune. Every where i look Ipod is there. Anyone who gets a Zune, i will consider a friend
