    Zune 2?

    I'm thinking about getting one, now the question is 4GB or 8GB? I also have $30 in rewardzone certificates :bowdown:

    Does anyone have a 10% off coupon?

    I have a shuffle but no screen pisses me off b/c it takes forever to find the song/album I want to listen to.

    I love my shuffle. I have that for the gym, and the ZUne for the car.

    I would suggest just a cheapo mp3 player, like a Sansa. It's actually not that bad, and the sound ouput is clearer than the Zune

    I have a Creative mp3 player and I love it. I have also heard good things about ones from Sandisk, like the Sansa

    Everyone always recommends those IPods and Ipod shuffles, but I believe you can get something just as good for a lot less than shit from Apple.

    I also got the sansa.
    I like I don't have to deal with I-tunes, it has a small profile which means it won't get in the way when I'm repping 453 lbs on decline x10. know what I mean bra?

    :rofl:

    It's $50 cheaper than the Zune, and I like that it has the same size screen and everything. I have $30 in rewardzone certs so that means I get it for closer to $70.

    recently bought an 8GB one for $117 shipped :coold:

    it's on backorder though, I got in just in time before the price went back up to $140 on most sites

    and being able to put Rockbox on it ftw! you can have all the features of normal PC music apps and more :eek5:

    I have a creative video player, it's pretty good. I just don't like the styling of the current smaller zens.

    :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:

    I friggin LOVE mine.. :love:

    I got the 2 gb one from WOOT when it was on sale for 34.99, lol.. bought a 2gb microSD card for 20 bucks yesterday at Best Buy..

    4 gb Mp3 player.. 55 bucks :o

    The reason I wanted a Sansa over an Ipod..

    1) Cost
    2) User Replaceable Battery
    3) FM Tuner Built In
    4) expandable via SD Card
    5) Drag and drop songs.. no iTunes etc.

    I think the FM radio is a good addition thrown in too. When I had a Creative Muvo ?? (the smaller one with a much smaller screen that required two AAA batteries :big grin:), I liked that I could listen to the radio even if I didn't have a more colorful interface to navigate through. The Creative Zen 2GB I have now has an FM radio, but I need to read the manual so I know how to scroll through the stations :o
