The Zune has rules.

 

First things first, the Zune software is buggy. Installed it on my primary rig which still runs XP and the Zune could not connect to PC. Installed the software on my Vista laptop and sure enough, it works. Not a huge inconvenience, but my PC will smoke...

Battery dead after 45 minutes of use.

 

I damaged my old 8G Zune and wanted the same size Zune so it would fit in my running shorts pocket. Microsoft now has the larger HD Zunes which are bigger than what I want, and I could only find an 8GB refurb. I was hoping the refurb would work but the...

Great price for a hard to find item

 

I purchased this product as a gift, and I have this product prior. My grandson (a computer pro) got this product including uploading videos in no time! It took me a few days to figure things out. BTW He loves it and wanted it after seeing mine. He is 14.
