Heres my review i gave Zunescene.com


Good: The Zune is great imo. The screen size is nice. also sound quality is great. its very easy to navigate and what not. The software is pretty nice. easy to use when you get the hang of it but could be a pain if you dont know what your doing. also they have the Zune pass for $15, unlimited downloaded but some artists arent available via Zune pass and you can only buy them (red hot chillipeppers, as i lay dying, ect...). also some artists like Led Zeppelin arent available to buy or download cuz MS doesnt have the rights. But you can add your own *cough* illegally downloaded *cough* music so you dont have to deal with that/ Also there will be no need to buy newer models for a while because all upgrades will be done through firmware updates.

Bad: The screen is nice like i said but it has the same resolution as the ipods smaller screen and even though the screen is in a widescreen format, your videos dont play on the whole screen. they play as though your watching a widescreen movie on a 4:3 TV so you have those little black bars on the top and bottom. I dont know why they didnt have it stretch out...Another bad thing is the battery life. it says 14 hours, which by itself is very short. and to get that you have to have everything at its minimum which sucks. But it doesnt take very long to charge after its first charge so thats good i guess. Also the batteries cant be replaced...so that sucks as well. One more thing thats bad. The Zune Pass. $15 a month? unlimited downloading? zomg the greatest!! Not. once you cancel your subsciption your music is taken off your computer and 3 plays or 3 days later it gets taken off your Zune.



But overall its great. the battery life isnt a problem with me very much though i wish it was longer


if i had to give it a rating: 8.5/10

yea and i got mine at launch so it has those minor bugs (like all ms products do, i dunno why i didnt wait) but nothing major.

The problems should be fixed or being fixed.

Its the same price as the ipod and you get a bigger screen and you get to be a little different because everyone and their mother has an ipod.

the battery life isnt as good as the iPods but i dunno when your going to listen to 13 hours of consecutive music without a computer nearby to charge it



A few of my friends fell in love with my Zune when i showed it to them. and going to buy one

Even one kid in my class is tryin to sell his iPod video to buy a Zune
