In the past several months since the second generation of Zunes went on sale, Microsoft has been busy addressing longstanding complaints about the Zune and its software: version 2.5 adds auto playlists, gapless playback, and other features that the iP...
Good Very large screen, Best nonclickwheel, nontouch control scheme yet, Zune 2.5 adds muchneeded smart playlist, video, gapless audio support, Incanal earbuds included in the box.
Bad Bigger than iPod, but screen isnt any sharper.
Bottom line The Zune 80 can be recommended as an alternative to an iPod classic or the few remaining hard drive players left in the market, though its focus is actually quite different than for the iPod classic its invariably compared against. It shines best when...

The 80GB Zune has undeniable cool factor, given its big screen and built-in WiFi. But rather than trumping the competition, it falls in that gray area between the somewhat ho-hum iPod Classic and the rip-roaring iPod Touch. We applaud Microsoft for try...

Bottom line The Zune really is a sexy gadget, but its lack of widespread adoption and limited wireless features (compared with the iPod Touch) holds it back in a big way. Unlike many out there, we dont think Microsoft is trying to copy Apples ideas -- the Zune d...

We’ve already been told that it’s coming “Zune” to Canada, but how does Microsoft’s sophomore entry into the MP3 player market compare against the iPods of the world? I had the chance to take the larger Zune 80GB out for a test drive and I have to ad...
