I got myself a Microsoft Zune for my birthday. I have to say, though its pretty big compared to that iPOD Nano, its still very slick and nice looking. It came with a whooping 30GB of space, and with management software to put songs, videos and pictures on your Zune. I was able to fit 100+ songs, and 20+ hours of videos in under 3.2GB!!! I'm also able to transfer full-length DVD movies to my Zune!!!
I got myself the Black Zune, for i didn't really like the Brown one, and the White one was pretty cool, but i just had to get Black. I must admit though, that i had some problems installing the software it came with. I apparently didn't have the correct Operating system on my PC to install it on. My PC is barely a year old, and it uses Windows XP Media Center 2002 edition with Service Pack 2. But apparently Media Center 2002 edition was too old to support the software. Just as a heads up, here's the system requirements:
The following hardware and software are required in order to use Zune software:
Microsoft© Windows© Vista, Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (SP2), Windows XP Professional SP2, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition SP2, or Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 with KB900325 (Rollup Update 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005).
In addition, go to Windows Update and install any high-priority updates that are available for your computer.
Zune software is not currently supported on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition or Windows Server.
