    im serious, zunes are terrible. Yeah they have a nice screen and yeah, they dont get scratched. but they dont do anything else either. The interface looks kind of cool, but after you use it you realize it blows. the wifi feature is just gay, because you cant really use it. and drm blows. furthermore, have you tried zune marketplace? laggiest fucking program, bloated shitware. fuck. it lags, its not user friendly. every time i want to add new music, its like you have to figure out how to do it all over again. its rediculous. fuck zune. oh and the fake dial on the front blows. it feels like you bought it from the dollar store, isnt touch sensitive. i bought a zune when they were $250. holy shit worst buy ever.

    piece of shit. you can have mine

    if you don't need/want all that storage space though, consider one of the arcos or cowon things.

    for wifi if your like hey check out this song, you can send it to your friend.
    they can play it 3 times, or you have something like 3 days to listen to it. it ought to be hey, check out this album, boom, and you should be able to keep it for life, just like you burned a cd for your friend. they just make it fucking inconvenient, and it just pisses me off. Further more, the biggest selling point for zune besides price is probably the screen for tv/movies. Well, youve got to convert everything you have into like wmv, which is a pain in the ass. just make it play avi already. jesus. I could create a kick ass mp3 player. I dont see why its so hard to fucking make a good one.

    :werd: on the expensive part I wanted one since it came out but I was going to wait until they went down in price until I saw one open box at best buy 260 for the 8gig. I was going to pick up the 16gig but I really dont mind just plugging it into my computer and switching up my videos and music when I'm done listening/watching.

    I just wanted to get the fuck away from iTunes, personally. I'm so sick of that bullshit program constantly trying to force updates, wiping my music library everytime I go somewhere and want to add new music, and lagging up my fucking computer with it's bloated software.

    Zune is drag and drop and doesn't wipe your shit when you are constantly plugging it in to new computers to add new music - which is nice for those of us who are constantly switching from school computer to work computer to home computer.

    Right now I'm just sick of apple's bullshit. Zune 2 is coming out in a few days and they are updating the software for the first gen Zunes... The deal from woot is the way to go.

    Your problem was that you probably let your music automatically sync which is bad thats why it kept wiping whenever you went to a new computer
