I got one myself and bought on for my girl at x-mas ( $89.99 at circuit city for the 30gb model)
For what they are, they are pretty good. when uploading video, it does it own conversion to fit. It gets quite annoying, but worth it. So far I’ve tried to find the correct specs, codecs and what not, but to no avail. Just download movies already formatted to mp4 for ipods and the conversion will be much quicker. ( I have all season of family guy and robot chicken on mine as well as some Veronica Mars)
Also, after you upload an item and happen to delete it from your computer, it’ll delete it from your Zune unless you change the file’s option to “non-sync”
Most of the cases for Zunes are rubbish, but if you can still find them, the Speck Canvas ones rock pretty well and they look like old school converse sneakers.
Oh, and turn off the wireless link feature feature and you’ll save about 30%-40% juice.
