Ipod killer February 22, 2008

Posted by spencerd in heavy metal, zune.

Well, for me, anyway. I bought an 80 gb Zune for $250. Couldn’t be happier with it. I upgrade from an Ipod 20 gig classic model, so I made quite a jump. Apple just didn’t have anything with the storage space I wanted that was affordable to me. I’m not gonna spend $400 bucks on a Mp3 device. What am I impressed with:

1. The screen size was a big draw. I mostly wanted this for music, but having a few pics on there to show will be great.

2. Boot up. Yeah, I’m sure Apple’s new ones do it too, but I like the instant on.

3. The scroll wheel/button. I like the up/down volume control, and the sensitivity of the whole thing.

4. The feel. Yeah, sounds weird, but the case feels really solid and durable.

5. Software. so far, so good. I read some negative reviews about the Zune interface, so I was prepared to go with something else if I didn’t like it, but it’s good enough for anything I need. No complaints that I can see.

6. Earphones. I’m not one of those audio affecionados who have to have $100 earbuds, so these sound great to me. Good bass, and I like how they fit.

I have all my tunes on Itunes, and I’m pretty sure I could figure out a way to just transfer it all on to my Zune, but I’m going to just rip my cd’s onto my laptop. Instead of putting EVERYTHING on it, I’m only going to put the good stuff on this one. Lots of room.

Linkin Park-Minutes to Midnight

Music and entertainment, your way. That’s what the Zune 80 GB Digital Media Player is designed to deliver. The Zune easily connects you with your music, videos, and pictures wherever and whenever you want, and unlike the iPod, it even has a built-in FM tuner so you can keep up with local news and sports. Your Zune gives you the power to wirelessly share full-length tracks, playlists, pictures and podcasts with your other Zune-wielding friends. And when you receive songs that you just can’t get out of your head, you can easily tag the songs and buy them the next time you sync up. Whether you’re listening to music, radio, or rocking out to the latest music videos on the bright, roomy screen, the Zune allows you to tailor your entertainment, right in the palm of your hand.
