I still like my zune :shrug:

Probably should have happened a while ago. iPods are far superior.

I guess I shouldn't have done this.

I've owned my 80GB Zune for a couple years now and I love it! They are super reliable and the sound quality is waaaay better than the ipod. It's treated me very well! Now I want to buy a Zune HD once the stores start liquidating them.

I'm sure a lot of people are reading this thinking I'm crazy for saying it :P

Sucks. My Sansa Fuze always kicks it after two, three years, so I was planning on checking out Zune because friends give it positive reviews. Not a huge fan of Apple in general.

i don't exactly understand why microsoft didn't market this better, if you've ever used a zune hd you'd know it was just so much easier than an ipod. really wasn't the Zune's fault, it could've been a serious contender/alternative to the ipod, but they were just so shitty at marketing this that it was sad. I just hope mine doesn't break anytime soon i really don't want to be forced to get an ipod.

Edit: you know what i always hated the most about ipods, that fucking clicking noise it makes when you scroll through the artists, makes me wanna pull my hair out

Zunes sucked anyway. iPod all day.

Spoken like a true (wrong) Apple fanboy.

I've never seen a Zune in action so I'm completely unaware of the menus and such on them, so in what way are they easier to use than an ipod, because ipod menus to me are so basic (legit quesiton I'm interested to hear the answer to - not being a cock)

About damn time.

I loved mine, unfortunately it broke and the store had stopped stocking them, so they gave me store credit and i got an ipod, in 2006, still works like a trooper (with new battery, 3 new headphone jacks and a new faceplate). Honestly Apple got the ipod so right IMO
