"Versital, Sturdy device for everyday use."4.0 starson by dsaumkc
Pros: Love the huge screen, ability to choose music format
Cons: Does not fit with any of the old accesories.
Summary: Having both an iPod 30gb and and older version ZUNE 30GB, I could not pass up the opportunity to jump on the larger hard drive 80GB device when it went on sale at woot.com one evening. I have maxed out both my previous units, I was searching for something with a larger hard drive. The case design has changed to a nicer metal backed, thinner design which I like much more than the previous one. The shuffle pad has the ability to turn it off and on for those who choose to do it the old way, so that is a nice perk. But the thing that really got me on this unit was the ability to store multiple formats of music. Mostly, constant bit, variable bit and more importantly, LOSSLESS audio. Having that option is very handy. The video playback is second to none.
My only drawback on these newer units, is that they are not able to use in the ZUNE HOME A/V packs, or the Altec Lansing M604 Portable Speaker System for Zune. They moved the bottom charge port so that they no longer fit in either unit. Other than that, this device is VERY handy. I can even store multiple movies on the device for travel, etc. as well as my 6000+ song music collection.
