So I am stuck between choosing between getting a Zune or Creative zen mp3 player.
I trust creative as I have had one for over 3 tears with no problems. The software is easy to use and I just simply love it, but I need way more than 5 gigs (and some color screen would be nice)


I am not to fimilliar with zune. All i know is that my friend told me the software is hard to manage and putting music on the player can be confusing.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Stick with Creative. I've had the Sleekphoto 20GB for 3 years, and it's never gone haywire on me. Creative is much more dependable and customer service is quite nice.

I honestly can't believe these are so cheap compared to the ipod nano/touch

only 5 gigs?

the newer iPod nanos with all the colors are pretty sick, but that comes with the iTunes hassle... but i have friends with Zunes and they're legit

I never had any real problems with my Zune, just be sure your computer is up to date, and that you have high-speed internet, and you are set.

Don't use distortion pedals. Just bury your guitar for three weeks, and then dig it up, that should do the job.

Yes, they are much cheaper. With zune, I can get an 80 gig for 230$.
I am just not sure what to get!

Iv'e seen 120 gig Zunes for $250 at Wal-Mart. Just to give you some ideas of its features, you can download podcasts to it, videos, play games, it even has a built in radio that lets you mark songs that are playing currently to download later from the Zune Marketplace. AND you can swap music wirelessly with your friends.

Since the Zune software seems to be the biggest issue with Zune users, how about you download the program and try it out for a few days? Also, play around with your friend's Zune.

From version 3.0 onward, the software has been pretty stable. I know personally that installing it was a pain, but the problem resolved itself once I had updated my computer, never had any problems with it since.

Creative Zen > Zune

I've had one for a long time and it never fails. Only 2 gigs tho...


I think the TS wants more than 2 gigs. Besides, Zunes start out at 4/8GB.

Try out all of the software and see which you like best, b/c iTunes can kill someones favorability over their mp3 player.

but honestly, the you pay more for the iPod name than the actual player. there are mp3 players with twice as much storage than the touch for the same price.

That being said, do you have a price range or any specific features you need to have?
