Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

I'll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Points of comparison:
- Brighter OLED screen with more vivid color and better contrast
OLED screens can wash out in direct sunlight more than others, but in almost any other situation they are clearly preferable, and have a marvelous eye-catching picture that needs to be seen to be appreciated. The screen has slighly lower resolution than the iPod Touch, but is also slightly smaller, so in the end video looks a little less pixellated when viewed closely, and very vivid.

Zune was the laughing stock a couple of years ago when Microsoft released the "brick" 1st-gen Zune. A joke went around about Microsoft's pathetic attempt to enter the "iPod market." So a year passed, and Zune remained a joke in the consumer electronics world and had to endure the jeers and torment of the Apple crowd. When the 2nd Gen Zunes came out, the Zune brand slowly started to see redemption. The Zune 80gb was deemed the first decent competitor to the iPod, but the brand was still in recovery from its hazing.

But for the first time, Microsoft has developed a Zune player that can finally use the words "downright sexy" to describe it. The Zune brand image is building up quickly with the release of the Zune HD, XBOX Live integration, and much-needed marketing.

With the rapid rise of the iPod Touch and iPhone, it's no surprise Microsoft came up with a touchscreen portable media player of its own. However, this is not a copy of the iPod touch at all. Sure the Zune HD features a touchscreen, accelerometer, app support, a strong web browser and other features that made the iPod Touch so popular.

However, the Zune HD has what the iPod Touch lacks, such as...

-ZunePass (Download all the music you want for $15/month, keep 10 songs per month DRM-Free)
-720p HDMI output
-An aesthetically nice software (Zune 4.

This little mp3 player is just plain awesome. I've had a 16gb g2 itouch for the last 6 months and while i loved the Touch itself, I was getting pretty frustrated with itunes. I wasn't really planning on changing players, but when i noticed the HD release was well received, i decided to give Zune a shot. I won't list the pros and cons of the Zune since there's a lot of that already, but hopefully i can help someone out who's on the fence between the Touch and HD.

Though the HD and Touch are definitely competing, they offer completely different user experiences. The Touch is VERY straight forward, and while that's great for ease of use, i got bored with the user interface. The HD, on the other hand, has a small learning curve, but once you get the hang of the OS, it is very well thought out. The menus are set up perfectly, with subtle animations while navigating. One of my favorite things, which may sound odd, is being deep in a menu and able to go back all the way to the home menu without having to press the physical button on the front.

I personally use my players for music probably 80% of the time. What I love about the Zune is that it really feels like MS's focus with the player was on the media it plays. The sound quality is great and I'd say superior to the Touch. Get yourself a nice pair of headphones with any player you get! The display while you're playing music is very neat, adding to the entire experience. It also automatically downloads the 'bio' of the band/artist, which is really, really cool. One of the best features (for me) is the HD radio and the ability to tag the song you're listening to. All of my favorite stations come in HD perfectly around here and after having this on an mp3 player, i couldn't do without it.
