Wow... Woot has surprised me finally. Touche. Now if only I hadn't already bought a media player from woot about a month and a half ago i'd be wooting this. Nice deal. $229 in retail stores. No this isn't a Bandolier of Carrots

You're never going to find a new iPod retailing for anything other than the srp. They don't need to lower the price for people to buy it.

I keep running that SNL quote through my head.

On Tuesday, Microsoft introduced its own version of the iPod, called Zune. As in, "Hey! Your Zune isn't as cool as my iPod!"
Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

I mean when it says it plays mpeg-4 files as most do now require you to use there converting software. Is this the case ?

A frind has one and it's OK, but a pain is that if you unhook the headphones, it does not stop playing - like iPods & Walkman do...

I would rather have this than an ipod, I don't really care who its made by as long at it works.

Anyone know if it handles DRM in an acceptable way?

GAH! I wanted to get a Zune, but ended up getting an iPod instead. If I knew Woot was going to have one two weeks later, I would have waited!

Too bad they're not dumping the brown ones. That would be appropriate.




Woot has definitely sold Ipods in the past. I think they were the HP-branded Ipods.

Not true. I have one and it does in fact stop playing if you unhook the headphones.

except the psp is 250 bucks plus 2gb max, = 325 bucks if you get a good deal.
this woot is a good deal (even though the zune is a mediocre player).
if your looking for an alternative, look at an archos 305.

Not a bad deal, but I like my iPod far too much to move to this. Besides, I've heard horror stories about the software Microsoft uses to update it (I know, you can use other software).

However, I do like the Smiths reference in the blog post title. :-)

pros: cheap(on woot), huge screen, easy to use
cons: lack of online content to download, all videos must be converted to wmv for the player to play and converting process takes forever.

I personally chose Creative Zen over this, and I'm glad I did because of the divx/xvid playback of Zen.

If you're buying this for listening to mp3, go for it. Video? try something else.

Pass.

Dang, I wish I had waited until now to get one. Then again, mine was a Christmas gift so it doesn't really matter... hehe.

Anyway, anyone who bad-mouths the Zune obviously hasn't used one before. Everyone I know with one loves it and I wouldn't choose any other media player over my Zune. Just don't listen to everyone who's afraid that this player may actually be better than their trendy little ipods.

Sidenote: The brown Zune actually does kind of look like a turd.

This thing plays AAC files, so if your iPod is dead, like mine...and my girlfriend's then this is good alternative. Sharing songs is hoaky, but the interface is decent. My only complaint is that they are a little bulky.

And for those of you who complain that it is not Mac compatible, then now's the time to kick yourself for buying a Mac, even if it is trendy and beautiful.

Nice reference to The Smiths in the description title.
But why use such a depressing song to sell a Zune? Oh wait...it will turn you into one of those black-clad hipsters in the Zune ads. Got it. Squirt away!

Ballsasaurus Rex. I've been thinking about getting one of these, but the $250 tag was too much for now. Getting it for a cool C-note cheaper is awesome, but I promised myself to cut down on my spending.

But I could hold everything, and I wanted a Zune over an iPod anyway. (Think different, get a Zune. I don't need your hipster iPod.)

Gah. Can't go to bed until I decide...
