"Great Improvements"4.5 starson by guyfromtrinidad
Pros: Mixview is fantastic, GAMES!, Good Value
Cons: Horrible Headphones, Software can still be buggy at times
Summary: I consider the Zune the little mp3 player that could. While the improvements over the 80gb were small they are very significant in terms of how people are going to be using this device. Without a Zune pass and some decent headphones I would give it 3 and a half to 4 stars but you need to be able to access Marketplace and channels to understand why Microsoft is providing good value for money. I know the ipod comparisons will be made but I think that is unfair.
Bottom line: If like me you love getting and purchasing new music, love watching videos on a portable device and have a windows computer, and willing to be different from the crowd,try out the Zune.
Apple makes great products that is why they dominate the mp3 player market, but I think right now the Zune is a great candidate for trying something new and I expect the 4th Generation to change the game.
