    Picked one up today, it's pretty sweet so far. I like the interface much better than the iPod, fer sure.

    I picked up a white one, and I like it. I never had an Ipod, so i cant compare it. I bought one of the $20 A/V ipod cables, and it works. I plugged it into my 42" plasma, and it plays video full screen. It plugs into the headphone plug.

    DVD movies look pretty good on it. My room mate is planning on exchanging his ipod video for one, and were going to set up a server here so we can convert, upload, and share movies.

    yeah if they fixed that it would be awesome (although admittedly I don't use that feature often at all on my 3 year old 20gb iRiver).

    Everyone I've known who has bought one really liked it and I played with one today and the screen is a lot nicer than the iPods for watching videos.

    I am enjoying mine so far, just wish it would be able to at least be recognized by a mac so i can drag mp3s onto it

    i hate having to use my pc laptop.

    go to engadget.com there's a usb drive hack for the zune. I'm not a fan of microsoft all too much but it might let your zune's drive be recognized by your mac. :)

    Played with it a few times and I really like the interface and screen. The people I know who have one love theirs as well so it seems off to a reasonable start
