Top Positive Review

I have had my 120GB G.O.W.Zune for over 2 years now. I must say that I have ever had a problem with hard drives failing, battery life draining, etc. I previously had a 30GB Zune 1st gen, which was also great.
The music quality is only as good as what you put in, be it 128bit-320bit. Zune also allows you to wireless sync your Zune, as long as you have WiFi. This means I can leave my Zune in the living room connected to the stereo, and add and delete content from my Zune from my computer. This does drain the battery significantly, but its nice to have the option.
The only con that i have is with the Zune player software itself, not the desktop software. It allows you to shuffle all albums/songs etc of your collection, but not one particular artist. For example, i can shuffle all of my Metal music, all of my R & B music, or all of my music, but i cannot choose to just shuffle my Pink Floyd collection or any play list. Sometimes, all I want to listen to is a few random Pink Floyd or Santana songs, not every classic rock artist.
The Zune desktop software is great, however, if you are a media info freak like I am, you will get frustrated with the desktop software. The software will NOT change the properties of the music file as WMP does. This gets frustrating as Zune can categorize an Alternative group as a Metal group and vice versa (I don’t know how many times Deftones has ended up in my Metal collection….)
If you can look past this and are not a meda info freak like I am, this will not bother you.
Either way, this is still a reliable, sturdy dependable media player that will always strongly recommend…

Top Critical Review

I ordered this unit because I wanted to try a Zune. It arrived, and I could not get it to charge. The vendor suggested I file a repair request with Microsoft because it was purchased new and has a manufacturer warranty. After contacting Microsoft, they indicated that the vendor is NOT an authorized Microsoft vendor, and the warranty expired in 2010. I requested to return it to the vendor because the unit was defective and they refused, saying that because the seal was broken, Zune units are not eligible for return. I then tried filing a claim with Amazon, as Microsoft indicated I should, and they rejected the claim, saying the vendor has a published policy for no returns on Zune. If I was in the market for any electronics (Computers, Flip camcorder, Zune players, ipods, Tabs, Tablets, PC Hardware, Software & projectors- We will not accept any returns if the unit has been open and the factory seal is broken) again, I would NOT buy from this vendor. Bad purchase experience. I now have a lump of Zune metal sitting on my desk. I am not a happy customer.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can you connect to wireless headphones with the Zune?
Answer: The zune has no bluetooth support. You can use it with wireless headphones if you purchase a headphone to bluetooth attachment

I thought the software didn’t exist anymore for these? Even if the player works you won’t be able to use it, correct?
Answer: Use search engine like Google and search for “Zune software download”. Choose X.box link to get directly from Microsoft. Or just go to X.box.com and search. The software is still there. They downsized Zune Marketplace I believe don’t quote that yet still able to download free Zune software…updated version.

hello this zune comes with the box and all conectors?
Answer: I don’t remember if it came with the box but it did have all the usb cables and the headphones.
