I will be very gentle in wording this but honestly in my opinion the Microsoft Zune is one of the worst MP3 players that I have ever used, because it really does not have anything great to it, and it is definatly not like the Ipods that Apple created, so definatly there is no competition there. The only think that is great in some Zunes is that there is Bluetooth were you can share songs but that is all.
Now the things that I hate about the Microsoft Zune is that it is not durable, because it can break on you instantly, that it what happened to me, I only had it for a few months and it broke on me. The next thing that I really hate about the Microsoft Zune is that it is really huge, it feels like you are carrying a five pound brick out, and it is not that comfy.
The final thing that I really hate about this Microsoft Zune is that the battery doesn't last that long, honestly I only listened to it for three hours a day when it was charged fully, and that really stinks.
Overall I really dislike the Microsoft Zune, and I don't recommend it at all.
