Cool. To steal a bit of a quote from Jander, I see the Zune as a seed from which a mighty oak will grow over time. This device has so much potential it's ridiculous. Changes are coming. Slowly, but they are coming. People just have to be patient, and eventually your patience will be rewarded. Microsoft has stated that they are in this market for the long haul, and so am I. I'm a steadfast Zune believer.

Hmmm, what do I think about the Zune? oh, it sux, but I bought one anyway, j/k  Grin  I really like it, the only thing I think it really needs right now is better video file support, but I'm sure that will be added later, otherwise I really like it.

There's just no question: the Zune is the best player around. At this point, the iPod is shown to depend too much on the content of its online store, and too little on innovation in the player itself. With a more professional look, sturdy, scratch-resistant screen and body, the best sound quality of any DAP, the largest screen, a built-in FM radio, huge potential with built-in Wi-Fi, and a fluid, logical interface, the iPod is left with nothing but a smaller body, and notes and contacts browsing. I may sound a bit like a spokesperson here, but after all of the research I've done to find the right player, there's no question left as to which has the most potential, and the best team behind it.

After hearing that the iPhone was supposed to cause a swift end to the Zune franchise, I watched the keynote last night. First off, great product. I love the interface, and the ability to browse the internet relatively well. The touchscreen technology is impressive, as is the size. What I don't understand is how they can even make the comparison, and why the comparison is made toward the Zune in particular. The iPod portion of the iPhone is nothing more than an improved interface. (And for the record, I'm not too impressed with it. Where's my album browser? I sure hope they aren't thinking that coverflow is meant to replace it.) And 4GB of space at $500? That doesn't leave much for music storage, much less movies.

I got on a rant there, and I didn't meant to. The iPhone should be a fantastic product, and I hope it spurs other manufacturers on to making better phones. My only beef is with those who instantly dismissed the Zune because of the Apple keynote. I neither see the relation, nor the threat. They are different devices, with different capabilities, for different markets.

See the Zune for what it is, and realize how lacking the 5 and 5.5 generation iPods are in comparison. I fully expect Microsoft to flesh out the Zune just like with the XBox 360, and turn it into the platform to be reckoned with. The media player and videogame console markets are going to get pretty interesting from here on out.

I love my Zune.  I'm not one that really cares about making sure that it runs circles around the IPod.  The Zune is something that's going to grow and I like that.  I don't mind coming in at the beginning.  Rome wasn't built and a day and you can't expect the Zune to dominate in 2-3 months.  It's an unfair expectation to put on MS.

I believe that the Zune has a special place in the market right now for those who do not want to go with an IPod because everyone and their mom has one.  There are few individualist out there.  But there are enough that have not yet bought an Ipod *raises hand*.  Plus, I really like the additional things that the Zune can do that the IPod can't do yet like the wi-fi and the tuner but you know Apple and others are working on it right now for the next holiday season.  It will take them 6 gens to get it right.  Cheesy

As far as my experiences with the software, it's been flawless.  I haven't had one crash, one problem, or any issues.  It's a lot like WMP11 so I'm kind of use to the layout.  Have I had my first social yet?  No.  Sad But it will come in time.  At school I've shown it to a few people and many said it's intuitive and very easy to use.  Others loved the landscape layout of the video and picture playback.  Although it's not true widescreen, it's still pretty cool.  I've been telling my brother about it and when I visit him in a few months, he'll probably nab mine.   Grin  My tech guru (he's getting a Masters in CIS) didn't have any real advice for me but once I bought it, he was asking me all types of questions about it and how I liked it.  It's definitely a conversation starter.

My opinion is that if you're interested in something different and willing to wait for the cool extras (wide range of speakers, tons of covers/skins, etc...) then the Zune is perfect.

I kind of got a Zune by accident, I won my white Zune in a drawing at a recent MS Vista/Office 2007 launch event.  I already had a ipod nano, and it's working fine for me since I use it mostly at the gym.  After I played around with the Zune, then I realized how lacking the ipod is.  The interface is so plain, and seems like the expandabililty is very limited compare to the Zune.  I think the Zune has potential, and will slowly convert ipod user over to be a Zune user.

zune looks more stylish than the ipod, even though they're just rectangles with a screen and buttons

IMO looks better, doesnt scratch, has a bigger screen, has WiFi, Has FM, isnt from Apple.
Great product!
And now that I have figured out how to get Video to it... Grin Grin
Honestly every IPod owner I have run into has come away with thier first hands on look at my Zune, feeling bad about thier Ipod.
Because.........
You cant beat the screen size.
You cant beat the sound.
You cant beat the WiFi.
You cant beat the Fm.
You cant beat the fact that it doesnt look beat up after 30 minutes out of the box.
Also I dont want a device that is a phone and my media player.
A phone is a phone, but my media player is a Zune.
Cant wait to see what the coming months have to offer.
