I hadn’t much thought about an MP3 player until a couple months ago, it just didn’t seem worth it. However, as I continued my daily commute and tried to manage music between my home and work computers, it just seemed like a good idea to have one. So it came down to the IPod and the Zune. Obviously I went with the Zune. I did that for a number of reasons. The software, the DRM free downloads, points that could be used with my XBox 360, and favorable reviews. So what do I think?
Out of the box experience was incredible. I already had the software installed and was ripping my CD collection already. I plugged in the Zune with USB cable, followed a couple of directions and I was synching all my music within 5 minutes. The hardest part was getting the stupid box open. I also got a radio tuner connector and it was just as easy. So now I’m able to listen to every piece of music I own whenever I want. Pretty cool.
