great way to take your favorite music,pictures with you and not take a lot of space in your bg or pocket. The only thing I do not like and its a mircosoft thing is that when you rip cds to your PC then put them on the zune you have to keep the cds on your PC using valuable hd space,if you delete them off the PC the next time you sync your zune it will be removed from it as well,and since the program opens each time you connect the zune,even if just to charge the battery you need to close it right away to avoid losing any music that you may have taken off the PC
I remember portable music/radio products from the early 1940's. They had huge batteries and were very heavy and quite large. This is a wonderful little portable player. Seems really sturdy. I'm only using it for music so that's all I can comment on. One of my sons had to help me set it up but you can teach old dogs new tricks and now I can do it myself!!!
I love my Zune and I am in awe of the support from Microsoft. I am not a computer techie and I was able to download music and pictures and even videos with little or no difficulty. The music sounds great, the artwork is fantastic and I love how the album cover shows up so vividly on the screen. I am very happy with my purchase and I look forward to using it on my next trans-continental flight.
I bought this for my girlfriend 2 years ago to replace her second broken nano. She has loved this. Battery life is still great. Holds charge very well. She uses it at least every other day to run with.
Positives: -great battery life -easy, intuitive functionality of the menus -the included head phones are actually pretty decent
Negatives: -even after several updates, the Zune software leaves something to be desired. Still cannot drag files from folders into the program (despite both being microsoft products) -no equalizer. This was almost a deal breaker buying it. Fairly satisfied with automatic settings
We got the zune in no time, although I could not get it to work. So I contacted the company explaining it would not charge. He asked me to file a refund/return with Amazon, which I did, I returned it to them, they checked it, and as soon as he could he repaired it. It was there Tuesday, and it was returned to us today. It works, and haven't had a problem with it. It has a little dust under the screen but it works completely so I would order from them again as the customer service is wonderful, and was easy to deal with,
I have had this item for a year now, and i have no complaints. The buttons are a little touchy for skipping songs and raising the volume, but overall this is a great unit. I though this model had the built in web-browser and wireless internet capability, but it does not. I believe it can hook up to your computer wirelessly for synchronizing, and you can connect wirelessly to another zune to transfer songs. Good quality MP3 player for much cheaper than any ipod out there.
This little Zune is so wonderful! I got it a lot cheaper than an Ipod and with more storage! We got this for our teenager's bday, she had requested an Ipod but we couldn't see spending a bunch of money (we all know how teen's can be :)) Well, when we gave it to her she loved it and after playing with it for a few hours and downloading music she said she liked it even more than an Ipod! I would suggest buying this rather than spending the extra money on an Ipod. My daughter said this was very easy to use and downloading was a snap.
I bought myself a 30 gb Zune about 2 years ago and it has been one of the best devices I have ever purchased. So for my moms birthday I purchased her this 4gb pink Zune and she LOVES it...no matter what she is doing she has got at least 1 head phone in and jamming out to her tunes. This Zune is a great tiny size, has a great screen and easy enough for my mom to use with out any problems...I would recommend any Zune to anyone looking for a great mp3 player...They are better then Ipods and way under raided.
Bought this for my girlfriend's birthday. Got a matching pink Kroo case to go along with it. She was happy since her old mp3 player broke awhile back. The touch screen is responsive, the video playback is alright, and the interface is sleek. Much better than expected from a lower-end mp3 player. :)
